What browser(s) do you use?
March 23, 2009 09:59PM
kinda just trying to spark a debate, but my browsers are flock, firefox, and chrome. IE is on my computer, but it's horrible. I LOVE social networking and integration, so flock is #2. Firefox is #1 because of the Stylish and AnyColor addons. My browser looks like the dreaded VISTA'S IE (glossy black) and stylish makes the youtube video window nice and big.

hell yeah! but in a speed test, the newest (not my) version of FF and some extension had better speed than Chrome. And i have an extension so FF looks like Chrome, with the tabs up top. and what's with the ftw?

Firefox 2.0.0.20 (hate 3.0...)
Redshift2theme
Love the spelling correction, bringing back closed tabs, and restore after a crash!
Also the addons are spectacular, download helper ftw!

Firefox! Any version :) I'd rather go without internet than use IE.

i know right? and all my friends are like "there's almost nothing different between them, and FF takes up more space on my computer." Most of their computers have 500 gig harddrives, and a mb difference is worth the speed. I demonstrated in computer class. i have the newest stable FF on my flashdrive, so i plug it in, open FF and IE, and try to load wikipedia and google. FF beat the living hell out of IE. It just shows you my friends are stupid. ;) And then they say Flock is stupid too! I believe one of them said "it's almost as bad as opera". Opera kicks ass too!!! and i agree with you. using IE is akin to slitting my throat.


And ninjafish1990, just wait until windows 7 comes out (legally) then it'll be all 7ish with "7 glasser theme" and stuff. and ummmmmm.....i don't have 7 so i wouldn't know what glasser is.....

#1 I have a legal and legit copy of 7
#2 it is built off of vista so its going to be (and is) extremely similar and just as retarded.

errrr...... i didn't mean the beta, i meant "Windows Black", the pirated version. And i DON'T have windows 7, which while it IS built off of vista, it will feature better stuff like native touchscreen support, making the back-seat driver approach to opening programs (are u sure you want to open it? Are u REALLY sure? you suuuuuure?) less of a hassle. But if 7 flops, windows is just going to be another footnote in the history of the world. But if it doesn't, then this is gonna be cool for a while, like XP still is. What other os can you think of that allows you to move the start button to the right top of the screen? I'm pretty sure that's a copyrighted feature. Can we get a "Hell yeah?" But then again, im pretty frustrated at how you can't change the default function of double-clicking on something. If you know how to fix that, please tell me, because there's nothing more frustrated than double-clicking on My Music, and having a Search window open. wtf?

soory about the win7 stuff, the only info i get on that is from my friend scott the computer geek (wtf he had win 3.1 on his laptop?!?!?!?) and popsci so my info is pretty limited. And btw i also use K-Meleon when im feeling VERRY geeky. Like when i go on rants over star wars, star trek, and battlestar galactica.

o, almost forgot, i still have runecats explorer on my computer. that makes like 12-15 browsers for me?

proxious... you have three posts... one revived a 1 month dead thread, one an 8 month dead thread, and another a 19 month dead thread!!!

Stop reviving old threads! Either start posting useful stuff or leave.

I have been using firefox for a long time, but just past couple days looked at google chrome. One thing I have found is these forums run slow in firefox, but in chrome load right up and zip along. I do like firefox add ons, like ad blocker and the smooth wheel for the mouse, it will save the web pages and tabs if it crashes or you close it out by mistake. Chrome is nice and faster, but would take some getting use to.

Well, now that this thread has been brought from the dead... ehem...

I used to use IE7, back when it was first released. It was cool and all, but I would constantly be attacked by viruses when visiting certain... adult natured sites (damn you and your unnecessary plugins!!). Then, I switched over to Firefox when a friend told me about it. I got Firefox 2.x or something, and it ran pretty damn swell. Plus, I could personalize it with a bunch of addons like AdBlock and other download managing tools, and I was in heaven.

Then... came... Firefox 3.0. And when I updated, something got corrupted, and would make Firefox crash everytime I attempted to launch it. Got tired of it, downgraded to 2.x... a few revisions later, I tried to update again, and it worked this time. But Firefox got SLOW. Real slow. So obscenely slow I had to leave Firefox on for 5 minutes until it would properly show up on screen, and then I'd have a small margin of time to use it before it started to slow down again to the point I thought it'd hanged. Even when disabling all addons would it still act in such a retarded way.

I had a bad experience using Google Chrome on an old PC, so I haven't touched it since (it'd load just as slow as Firefox). So now... I'm using Opera, and I'm pretty darn happy with it. Doesn't have the bells and whistles other browsers have, but it's light, fast and has a few neat features which prove not being as intrusive and annoying as Firefox addons. Of course, with the recent Opera update we've supposedly gained some plugin input now, but I wouldn't really care about them.
