Joey: yea that’s stupid enough already
Joey: but how can smth work for IE 6
Joey: but not IE 7
Joey: that’s just ridiculous

me: tell that to johnny

Johnny: That’s because IE7 is superb when using for work and Os related uses.  All the other browsers have problems when downloading drivers and updates.

What do you think? Anyone out there trying the new IE8 beta?

  1. Firefox is the major suck…. you have to configure everything and definitely not useable right when you install it. Firefox crashes consistantly with everything that I use for web software as a realtor. I HATE FIREFOX!!!!!!! No one has shown me why firefox is better….

  2. There is no equal to FireFox, although Opera would be the closest. The majority of people use IE because it is bundled software that comes with their OS. There are thousands of features and addons for FF that IE does not have. But Microsoft has been hard at work trying to play catch up with FF the last couple of years. Also 99% of all viruses/worms are specifically aimed at IE users while FF users are unaffected.

    FF is not that complicated, but if you don't have the intelligence to know (or learn) how to use it, you are probably better off staying with Internet Exploder ;) The same way Linux is superior to Windows, but most people don't possess the intelligence to know (or learn) how to use it.

    I haven't downloaded Chrome yet, but from what I see it is a very simple design (Google likes to keep things simple) which means without being loaded down with a lot of extras, it may have blazing speed.

    I will check it out, but I love my FF addons too much to ever give them up!

Talk to me, Goose.
