Yawn.... it seems that the browser world is, apparently, one-third Chrome, one-third IE, and one-quarter Firefox.
This is a good thing compared to IE owning the world.
I use Chrome, though I might use IE9 if I could. But since you cannot install IE9 on an XP machine, I'm stuck with IE8.
I had Chrome for a while .. it got to the point I missed Firefox, so I'm back. I only use IE when I have no other choice. Chrome has been uninstalled.
<double-yawn> I prefer to use FF, but a major zapp wiped out most of my file associations and I don't know enough to recover or build them back, so I'm forced to use IE8. <groan> I think I would like Chrome, but I don't like Google all that much due to privacy concerns.
Is that Bill's not-so-subtle way of nudging everyone back to the future?
There are limitations to a 10 year old OS.
I like FF for one simple reason...I can move the scroll bar to the left side. Weird, I know.
Always have and always will use IE for business.
The only place where Chrome leads is in surveys conducted by Google and the CERT list of high risk security vulnerabilities. This week is a particularly bad one for Chrome:
As if Win7 was a quantum leap ahead in any important respect...
Given its habit of sweeping change from one release to the next, IE is arguably the most poorly suited browser to business use.
You'd think so, but I use both 7 and XP SP3 daily, and so far the only program I can't run on XP is IE9. Otherwise, every other program I use runs equally well on both platforms. :shrug:
The only reason IE9 won't run on XP is to try to get the die hard XP users to update. It's going to take a lot more than that.....
No more security updates? The day is coming.
Ya. Early 2014, IIRC.
I left Firefox and switched fully to Chrome about 6 months ago.
Being able to automatically sync my Bookmarks and other settings across multiple computers is invaluable to me.
I'll research something at night and then bookmark the information.
When I get to the office, it's right there where I left it.
No more e-mailing links to myself.
Couple that with Chrome's Adblocking extensions, and you'd have to waterboard me to get me to go back to the dark cages of IE or FF.
I just skimmed the article, but saw no mention of how many people use Chrome Frame in IE.
I have fixed many user's IE script errors by removing malicious add-ons and installing Chrome Frame.
i have fire fox, chrome, and IE
some places only let me do it via IE.
but I like fire fox for its options.
chrome is cool, i got it just to see what it does.
You know you can open IE-only sites automatically in Chrome or FF using the IE Tab plug-in, right?
Haven't tried this one yet, but I will soon.
