[Thoughts] Web Browsers: a Quiz
Heh, this's the first time I've ever made a quiz; I had to crack open the LJ FAQ because I had no idea whatsoever how it was done. *grin* If you've got a few seconds, please fill this out for me. I've only got IE and Opera installed on my computer, and I want to know what other browsers to test my web site with.

Poll #412027 Web Browsers

What web browser do you customarily use?

Internet Explorer
Netscape Navigator
one you haven't listed

If I've forgotten a browser, what is it?

Edit: Oh, I almost forgot: a real post is forthcoming.

Edit 2: I suppose it was a bit silly to hope there was a Windows version of Safari. ^_^()

Feeling: curious curious

I've had Mozilla for awhile now, and I'm sincerely thinking of switching back to IE. Too many things don't work right or display right.

Consider all the security flaws inherent in IE's design philosophy (why should a web browser be allowed access to your operating system internals? It just asks for trouble and oh look! There it is--worms and spyware away!) and compare that to "things don't look right."

Granted, it's a matter of choice, but I think the choice here is obvious.

Me, I'll stick with Firefox and K-Meleon (the Mozilla rendering engine for webpages and nothing else). I'll only ever use IE for one thing--Windows Update--and even that can be handled by the OS itself, with no worries as to malicious ActiveX code.

The problem with things not displaying right is that many people make their webpages for IE, instead of conforming to standards.

Try getting the latest Firefox - they've done a good job of getting it to not only show perfectly designed pages, but also the abortions of code made for IE.

Plus there's the whole thing with IE being an abominal security risk, not to mention being riddled with literally hundreds of bugs and flaws.

Firefox, as I answered, but there are... let's say... "some places" at which IE is mandatory, because the powers-that-be aren't all that quick to adapt. Rar.

Ah! I see you have stealthily friended me. This requires retaliation!

Oh, I see. A clever move, but in the end, victory shall be mine...
