X3 I used her some days ago on a computer stat was newly set up and had nothing else... She fails on many Java scripts, has issues with downloads and moans all the time about errors in her status bar, even when a side loads correctly! She's a crybaby!
Well, Opera is slow as ass, but at least it has it's own integrated eMail-program from beginning, and it's a rather small program, but Firefox got a lot of useful add-ons like the download helper that works on most videoportals and the mighty AddOn-blocker...
Love it. But i have a question. Why do people see Ie as a not so good browser. Im a gamer and i have been useing this all my life. I have tryed others but i dont really have a taste for them. Please im not trying to be rude but an example would be nice.
I'm in the IT and a gamer. I program websites and applications. Internet Explorer uses very old-fashioned standards and coding, which means that web developers have to rewrite a lot of things and make website codes excessively complicated because IE barely supports things (HTML 5, the new standard, is not at all supported by IE). Besides that it's slow and often loads CSS and scripts in the wrong order. It's a bad browser, not for the users, but for the developers, it's a pure nightmare and it's seriously slowing down technological progress. For many basic stuff it's acceptable for the user, but for avid internet users...
I don't know how firefox doesn't fit a person's tastes since it's... EXACTLY the same as Internet Explorer but just a lot faster.
@=serpenttao04: If you have a dislike for IE, you're certainly entitled to your opinion but you're a bit off on your statement that IE doesn't support HTML5.
IE9 has supported a number of HTML5, CSS3 and ES5 features for 2 years now ([link]) and IE10 (shipping Oct 26th) will offer even broader support for the standards: [link](v=vs.85).aspx
From your comment, I'm fairly confident you've not taken the time to look at either browser and I would urge you, as a professional web developer, to check out the feature set so you can build great cross-browser experiences.
html5test.com is really everything I need to see that IE10 is still extremely far behind in its html5 support. It supports some features, but nearly not as much as its competitors. Its performance is still far under par comapred to Chrome and Firefox. At this point, even Safari is tied with IE for performance and support. Besides that, IE has next to no extensions, and Microsoft is trying far too hard to be modern, while leaving the customer base behind.
I've sworn with Microsoft Windows forever and am not planning to deviate. But if I see IE10, Windows 8 and its Metro Interface and the x360, I'm starting to lose faith. I feel somewhat aired that I can actually speak to a Microsoft employee, regardless of your function within the company, to express my concerns. Even if nothing will be done with it. But just know that most of my colleagues and fellow students have a strong disliking for the course Microsoft is taking with its browser and OS, and that most people are starting to consider Linux.
