    I love how they advertised it as some revolution in Internet browsing. Yeah, it is, if you use IE8.
  • No rainbow star

    Apparently IE9 is actually better in some aspects to Firefox, which I found oddly unsettling

  • I... doubt that.


    At the same time, though, Firefox doesn't seem to have actually fixed any of its problems in any of the past six and a half versions, so perhaps that's actually a possibility.

  • No rainbow star

    ^^ I hope they get to fixing it soon :< I'm still stuck on Firefox 7 because newer versions like to crash on me, and it's the only browser that displays tabs in a way I find appealing

  • The IRCs want you(r soul): irc.esper.net, #ijbm

    yep

  • lol, people not using Chrome

  • I'm wary of Chrome due to privacy issues concerning Google.

    ^Meh, Google has everything anyway :P

    ^^^ Chrome displays tabs crappily

    I used to use Chrome because of the way the search bar doubled as the address bar. I stopped when I learned there was no way to clear the search bar's saved searches.


     


    Also, despite how it may seem sometimes on the internet, most people aren't part of the general nerd web culture and thus don't give a shit about what browser they use.

  • You can change. You can.

    There's Incognito mode, though.

    lol



  • Begun, these browser wars have.

  • I like my separate search bar; I can choose what search engine to use.  I have over 15 different search engines.  ...okay, not all of them are actually search engines.  Some of them are pretty specialized, such as d20srd, mycroft project, and UrbanDictionary.


    But yeah, I don't like a one-size-fits-all search engine since I can often jump through fewer hoops (worth of bandwidth and middlemen), leave a smaller trail, and get to my destination faster, if I use a specialized search engine.

  • All major browsers, as far as I know, let you choose which search engine to use when searching via the address bar, by means of keywords.

  • edited 2012-03-20 10:34:40

    I think I had to define the keyword myself in Opera; it defaults to Google if you don't use a keyword I think.  I know I defined a keyword "ddg" for DuckDuckGo.

  • Well, obviously.  But you also have to define most search engines yourself, so that hardly is worth mentioning.

  • I don't mean this is a bad thing.  Just slightly different.  Potentially better in that it frees up space for the address bar to display more characters in long URLs, actually.

  • edited 2012-03-20 10:36:25

    Yep.  It's also much quicker to type a keyword than it is to select a search engine from a dropdown list.

  • edited 2012-03-20 10:57:00

    Oh, I use Ctrl+up/down to select one, actually.


    So it's Alt+D to go to my address bar, Tab to go to the search bar, and then Ctrl+up/down to choose a different search engine if I need to.  And since D and Tab are on the left side of the keyboard, Alt+D then Tab is like one continuous, fluid motion of my left hand anyway.


    I guess it's slightly faster to Alt+D and then type [keyword] [search item].

  • In Chrome, what I do for searching, e.g. Wikipedia, is "en", Tab, enter search term.

    So Chrome has a feature where it recognizes keyboard input outside of a normal realm of things?  That seems like it could run into lots of bugs with other text-input and keyboard-input features in web pages.

    Look at this guy here, not using a Mac.

    Look at this guy here, ridiculing someone for not using a Mac.


    Okay, seriously, what does a Mac have to do with this?

  • I'm a damn twisted person

    Glenn, you're surprised that a guy with "FuckYou" in his username is actin obnoxious?

    Can not-Macs do the ctrl+opt+t thing too? I honestly don't know, I've used my computer for so long I forget how to do stuff in Windows.
