PostSubject: Internet Browsers   Tue Aug 30, 2011 2:45 am

I use Internet Explorer.

Now, for some reason this is the bottom of the heap of internet browsers and always gets ragged on by people who use 'better' browsers like Firefox, Opera etc etc.

My question is - why ?

IE does everything I want it to. It has tabbed browsing, can access all sites and all content as far as I can tell, supports Flash. What is it that I am supposedly missing out on ?

I use internet explorer as well. I used to use firefox, but apparently it fucked something up(dont ask me, ask the computer support guys) so they deleted it.

Not that I really noticed a difference honestly...

I use firefox because...hell if I know.
I ve been using it since time immemorial.
This thing I don't like about IE...damn. There was a huge article on that topic in PC magazine and it explained a lot...but I forgot it.

Firefox. Mainly because of security reasons. Apparently, a lot of malicious scripts etc are made for IE, since it is the most popular browser. Much like most viruses and worms are designed to breach Windows-based systems. By choosing another browser your system is more secure. Simple.

I use Chrome. It's pretty simple and well designed, and has some nice features.

Firefox is far more extensible and uses less resources than IE.

Firefox still uses a lot of resources, so if you're going to alt-tab or play a windowed game you should use Chrome, Opera, or a stripped down Firefox-based browser like K-Meleon.

IE is also proprietary. Just because it comes with your copy of windows doesn't negate that. People hate on IE because it's not free and the source code isn't readily available for use.
