I don't know what century this was made, but I never thought of I.E. as the browser of choice for 'non-conformists'. I've used FF for about a year, here at home, but I can't use it at work except for testing. There are sites we have to use that are specifically written for I.E. and depend on it not adhering to standards, and other browsers don't work right.

Looks like this was made by an Opera fanboy.

I've run across just a few IE only sites, ones that will work ONLY with IE, and every time I encounter one I always write their IT department a note to let 'em know how short sighted and rediculous their position in doing so is.

I haven't used IE in nearly 5yrs now for anything BUT such sites and when I do have to use it on my XP machine at work I have to enable it 1st because it's locked outta the system otherwise.

I used to run Firefox exclusively but really like Operas features and speed, so I've been runnin it for the last year and 1/2 or so. It plays really well with Ubuntu 8.10 eventhough FF is the pre-loaded browser and has been since at least 6.06.

MS's dominance is dwindling but it will be quite a while before anyone will ever exceed their level of domination in the software world. Their recent patent application for the concept of rent-a-wreck/pay-as-you-go monthly service fee for a MS supplied machine kinda shows a lot about their mentality and could well just push more users to explore other options, just like their clusterfuck over Vista did too.

The MS fanboys can be easily spotted and they're still thick as fleas on a mangy dog in the computing world where they can be constantly heard singing the praises of their proprietary software gods as they whole heartedly parrot the corporate MS line, but the open source crowd gains new members about daily and it's steadily chipping away at their grip on the computing world winking

I have firefox installed on all our computers but I still use Safari for nearly everything. It's fast and clean and I really like the way bookmarks work. I tried not to use and just use firefox but I found it to be slower on my computers. It is much more customizable, but aside from appearance I have all the tools i need on Safari, cooliris and tidy (shows no errors and 11 warnings for this page) included.

I wasn't going to comment on this post because these comparison things are like directions to the center of loserville, but as my name came up...

I work for a small-ish company which doesn't have the computers all locked down like some big corporates I have worked for in the past. First thing I did was replace IE with Firefox, but most people round here still use IE cos that's what they have been used to.

I then had to process the US payroll (we have a small US subsidiary company) on a payroll company's website and couldn't as I didn't have IE. Had to reinstall it, but it's the only thing I use it for.

I'm not a big-time advocate for open source software (except for my home puter cos I'm such a cheap-skate and don't wanna have to pay for anything if I know I can get it for free), but I REALLY don't like MS's 'tude and use as little of their software as possible. Compare MS with Adobe for instance. Adobe has a virtual monopoly in certain areas, not because they were anti-competitive, but because they made good product and marketed it well. I would much more happily fork out my own dosh to them than I would to MS.

You guys might be able to help me out though. I bought a laptop last year that was preloaded with Vista. How easy is it to change to Ubantu and are there any tricks or problems I need to be aware of to make the change? Will everything I run work with Ubantu (obviously Firefox is not a problem, but will Open Office, GIMP, Skype, Yahoo Messenger, etc all work without hassle with Ubantu)?

GAK, OO & Gimp come loaded on Ubuntu & there's a stripped down version of Yahoo Messenger available that works w/Ubuntu, and as far as I know, Skype works too though I've never used it.

MS just keeps puttin nails in their own coffin, and dudn even see it eye rolling

Don't even get me started on Adobe. I hate those fuckers. Them and RealNetworks can all go burn in Hell.

Uhg. Dont even get me started on adobe. Long time ago i tried to updated Acrobat Reader and it kept trying to FORCE me to install yahoo toolbars. The checkbox was grayed out and could not be unselected. Switched to Foxit and never looked back for PDFs. (i rarely use pdfs except when downloading rebate forms so its all good for me). Realplayer was even worse.

Hmm I use different stuff depending on where I am and what I'm doing

Obviously the few IE only sites I need to use (like submitting my timesheet) I use IE

else..

Work laptop (XP) - Firefox
Home laptop (Mac) - Opera
Home desktop (Vista) - Google Chrome
Any Linux host I use - Firefox

I find different browsers perform and behave better or worse depending on the machine I run them on.

As for Adobe (incl photoshop, dreamweaver, acrobat) -- fscking piles of shite. I can't stand anything that company makes. Real Networks can just go fuck themselves. Real Alternative is quite good though if you HAVE to use Real streaming.
