BROWZER WARS!!!
« on: November 27, 2008, 04:16:19 AM »
If anyone votes Netscape I am:

1. Murdering them.
2. Making it painful.
3. Starting my planetary destruction early.

All votes must be posted in thread!

I voted Firefox, but I would have voted Opera had it been on the list. I run it directly from my flash drive (google "opera@usb 9.62") so it's awesome that I can use it wherever.

By the way, it's against TSC rules to murder someone for their beliefs. Then again it's against TSC rules to murder anyone for most reasons anyway, you can blame RPG for that <_<
The moon is so red. Looks like it's going to be a fun night.

Firefox is nice, it doesn't randomly slow down like IE does. >_>

I like Chrome. I found it similar to Firefox, and it's only beta. I see potential in it.

I looked it up. Here's the wikipedia entry on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELinks

But seriously, text based? (Edits poll to remove ELinks)

EDIT: There are now 3 votes for Netscape. ADMISSIONS PEOPLE!!!

EDIT2: Typo :P

What's wrong with it?

This message is brought to you by ELinks, for example.

See that "L" icon underneath CodeGirl's username? Move your mouse over it. The tooltip says "ELinks".

Also, KDE Konqueror ftw.

Yeah, I noticed. But that just means that ELinks was the last browser she used on TSC.

And agreed, KDE Konqueror ftw.

Personally, I've always wanted to build my own browser, but I'm too lazy, honestly, as it would not benefit anyone but me...  There are a lot of things that browsers use that I don't need...  the most prominent being any help functions, as, since I use my bed as a keyboard tray, I often hit F1 while moving and come back to a half-ton of help-screens when I come back (about 1-2 times a day)

I would have more respect for someone who's still using a Netscape version prior to 8 than the alternative.

I voted Chrome, as it is what I use most. It is just very uncluttered, and I don't even notice I'm using it, so that is nice, as opposed to the 50 lines of crap that are at the top of ever other browser on earth.

I find firefox to be very uncluttered...

I'm curious: Does anyone else use fullscreen when browsing?

I use it for wikipedia surfing, but not too much else, unless there's something that requires it...

Have you tried Chrome? It reduces the interface down to one combined url/search bar with a few buttons and the tab bar. The speed is also outstanding; Javascript in particular blows everything else away. The primary drawback is no addons.

I always use full-screen whenever browsing, personally.

I'll probably stick with Firefox for many years to come, plug-ins such as AdBlockPlus (used to disable any banner/image/url you name, either specifically or via generalized scripting) make it all worthwhile, lessening my clutter and bandwidth usage on the internet as a whole. The only things at the top of my screen are quick links to my regular sites (MAJOR improvement over my old method of keeping them in favorites, the space used is well worth it), the toolbar (I HATE browsers that put the toolbar into a button, as it ever-so-slightly obstructs quick access to options), and the main navigation bar, which I wouldn't call obstructive or cluttered by any stretch of the imagination.

Firefox also sees major improvements with a little program called Firetune, which just tweaks some settings in the browser for optimum performance.

Since I have too much time on my hands, here's a photoshot of my screen as it is right now:

I use firefox or chrome. IE crashes when I am running something that has Flash10x in it, it always gives me a windows error saying that the addon Flash10x does something wrong or something. But I never get it in Firefox or Chrome.

But in Youtube I started having a problem in the videos. Sometimes in some videos it would shift videos numerous times. Say it goes from Regular, then to shifts to a smaller vid in the top left corner of the vid screen and keeps doing that for the entire video.

Sometimes it does not do that, but It does do it as much as it don't so I don't know what is wrong. I tried every browser I had and it kept doing it. I even asked about it in the Help forums on youtube no one answered me. So I was wondering why it does that.
