Firefox is the greatest browser in history and anyone who disagrees can go fuck a sheep.

While firefox is nice, it's the biggest resource hog on earth. I had to switch the family comp to chrome until they can upgrade their ram.

Are you sure it's Firefox hogging resources and not add-ons? Most people who use Firefox also install Adobe Flash Player, which is a terrible resource hog. Firefox (more precisely, GNU IceCat) has run much faster since I gave that up.

Also, I recommend Chromium instead of Chrome. Chrome has a really nasty EULA that apparently nobody reads.

a) chrome also had adobe flash player, and it used significantly less resources, so no.

b) my family is so computer illiterate no EULA on Earth will ever restrict them from doing anything because their intelligence already does so.

Firefox sucks but it is infinitely better than IE.


Opera is best though (and I don't fucking care that its proprietary)

LOL opera. I only tell people I don't like to use opera. IDK what it is about me, but I like software that takes a while for you set it up JUST RIGHT.

I wouldn't tell anybody to use Opera, because the use of any proprietary program is a social problem, and I don't wish to spread it around any more than it already is.

Opera sucks. Firefox sucks. Internet Explorer sucks.

Only Webkit based browsers are acceptable.

I have the same problem as the OP described, depends on the computer I use.  What happens is, when typing a response, anything, really, and the type exceeds the dimensions of the text box on screen (basically, you know need to scroll up and down to see all the text in the box), the text boxs has a tendency to stay scrolled at the top.  If you start typing at the end of your text, the box will scroll down quickly when you type, but then automatically scroll back up to the top.  It's a pain in the ass, basically.  Not sure why it only affects some computers (I use IE, it works sometimes, depending on the computer).

Trolling makes me angry.

At least we're not crazy.  I'd love to use Linux, it's just not compatible with how I use my computer.

Try not using IE.

This is good advice no matter what you value in software. IE is badly designed on every possible level.

I'd love to use Linux, it's just not compatible with how I use my computer.

What about how you use your computer is incompatible with GNU+Linux?

I've actually tried Ubuntu.  I love the loayout, etc, I just can't get sound on it.  I googled some stuff, and I decided I was too lazy how to figure out how to fix it.  So here I am, on Windows.

A kernel, one piece of a complete operating system.

Well played troll though. I use *NIX.
