Web browser preference

#1
I think many computer nerds are beyond thankful that internet explorer isn't the only option for web browsers out there. I personally use Firefox. What's your preference? Be sure to vote in the poll!

Oh god not IE! Anyway as I said in the google vs bing thread it is Chrome for me. I used to use Firefox before I got an iPad for school and then an iPhone and that's when I got chrome for the cross compatibility. Also as Darth Apple said in another thread the convenience of having a URL and search bar in one is handy.

I honestly don't understand why anyone even uses IE at all. Actually, from the perspective of a webmaster, usually many hours are spent just getting something to look usable in IE, whereas it just works by default in Chrome and Firefox. IE is a mess if you ask me.

The whole idea of IE is a mess. Surely someone like MS can do better with all of they're talent and money.

I actually wonder if MS employees even use IE for their own personal web browsing. I know if I was employed by MS I wouldn't be using IE.

It's a popular web browser for linux users. For many linux users it's also their file browser.

I personally don't love it, but it has a decent user base.

I think it's the default file browser for KDE, although I don't particularly care for KDE.

Ah, I wasn't aware that it was also the default for Xfce. I might install Xfce on my install of Ubuntu soon just to see what it's like. I have heard good things about it, so I think it's probably worth trying.

I uninstalled thunar and just used plain nautilus.. but then the move to trash option was gone and delete didn't work in the right click menus, so yeah Tongue

nautilus has been a bit of a mess lately. Seems like it's slowly getting cleaned up, but it needs work.

I think IE needs a good refresh. It's still better than FF, IMO. FF hasn't worked for me for a long time. Back when their release numbering made sense (i.e. changing the colour didn't mean a complete 1.x change Tongue) I used it, probably around FF3. So I haven't used in in a long time. In fact, when I had labs in computer labs at my campus this past year I used IE, even though FF was available.

They need to simplify their interface. I think that all of the features and extensions they've tried to add only make things worse, to be honest. If they made it feel a lot more like Google Chrome, that alone would be a pretty good accomplishment.

For sure. It's a little clunky, though IE10 is a bit of an improvement. I don't like the tabs/URL bar layout, though. But it's not terrible.

Seems like microsoft is on the right track, but it still needs work in my opinion. It's improving slightly each release though. Big Grin
