IE is still my default - but id go chrome - rather than FF for "friendlyness factor
NO OFFENSE but ff is long in the tooth these days! ... plus ff RAMS updates down your throat every other day
( * - Please load FF 50.003.5. We know you just loaded 49.002.1-4 - a day ago.... but we will bug you MORE THAN MS to uprade (over and over...)
IE vs chrome.... not ff?
edit: i used to make fun of ALL other browsers - saying "wake me when IE falls below 60%"
well... im AWAKE!!!!!
edit 2 - if quakelive ran under chrome.... hmmm i dunno what id use these days
I agree about FF for sure. What I meant was, the regular users who "THINK" they are techies, use FF. I dislike FF hardly... as you said, I HATE its updates, every 15 minutes "FF needs to update, restarting" *LOL* and many "on that camp" complain on how often
Windows gets rebooted ( usually at most, once a month ).
Chrome is indeed copying simplicity of IE but it has a creepy big brother inside it so I personally won't touch it but I can understand that people use it. The same way most people lost their freedom in real world "Let me drink my beer and watch football
and I care not.", the same applies in the cyber world. "I just want to surf, I care not about my privacy or big brother"... but that's a whole 'nother rabbit hole.
Let that also be said that I know people who left IE for years to use for example Opera or FF but they came back to IE since let's face it, at the end of the day, "IE just works." and has less hassle than most of the other browsers.
I'm unsure about the IE-situation though, I mean, if Microsoft cares about it or not anymore. Maybe there is a shift coming we can't see yet.
May you live in interesting times.
