Hi Rosalind,I've never even heard of it so am looking forward to reading peoples responses.Neil
Firefox is currently my #1 choice for browsers,
All it is to me is another idiosynchratic pain of building "browser sniffing" scripts.
I have looked at the latest Google Chrome browser's information thingonly I would be interested to know if anyone has either used it or tried it out.Also if you have used the Google Chrome browser is it any faster than theordinary Google search engine, which Rosalind uses all the time.
I've reinstalled Chrome again for a another try and in my opinion on my computer it just does not seem to operate as efficiently as Google says it should. I have retuned to firefox and yet still come across some sites that won't work/display correctly unless IE is used. One thing I do find with Firefox is that quite often...when ewe think it has closed down...it's still running !!...opening up Task Manager and it's still there !!...This happens when ewe restart Firefox and I get the message that it's already running !!..weird eh ?..does anybody else experience that ?
I'm currently using chrome on this pc because IE kept crashing. It seems OK but then again, I'm not asking it to do anything complicated. The favourites transfered across OK. The only bit that bugged me was the spell check which defaults to incorrect English, and that's easily fixed.
I didn't like it.
I had been using it since the Linux versions were released back at the beginning of December 2009 but I've found there's no way to set a limit on the amount of stuff it caches and that, together with a few other lacking controls i.e. cookie retention etc, I've just dropped it and gone back to a firefox derivative.
