What browser?

Postby Silver Surfer » Thu Feb 05, 2004 5:09 pm

I was a bit curious about this. Do "everyone" still use the horrible Internet Explorer or is this beginning to change now?

For myself, I use the Mozilla Firebird browser and it's friggin great, never looked back on IE after I tried it the first time!! :D

Highwire look really amazing! Much better then the shots I have seen from CAB. Now if they just could get some CSS going that would be real neat! I suppose the minimum requirements to run Highwire is TT/Falcon?

Cheers

from the highwire doc
System requirements:

Multitasking (preemptive multitasking) Atari OS – MagiC or MiNT
NVDI 3 or SpeedoGDOS
Speedo fonts with Bitstream International Character Set (BICS)


st 4mb ram,hard drive with magic and nvdi could run hw ( never tested )

I've voted for "other" as I use Avant Browser (http://www.avantbrowser.com) - which is basically IE, but with loads of fixes and features IE lacks, and I've used this for over a year now.

Its multi tabbed, got a built in popup blocker, skinnable etc well I like it anyway.

Highwire looks really cool by the way!

For sheer functionality --Opera, no doubt. It's years ahead of the competition. Not 100% compatible with everything, but mostly not its fault...

I've voted for Mozilla as Firebird is not listed.
Firebird is the coolest WWW browser for PC crap machines.

I slapped mozilla and firebird together to one as I was a bit lazy.

Firebird rocks! I especially like the tabbed browsing and the different skins that you can download. And the fact that it is opensource is great!

My build seem to be crashing though when I try to save images... Maybe I should revert back to the normal build.

Well, I think Opera had a tabbe dinterface before Mozilla, no? And, IMHO, it works much better than the Mz/Fb one. Shortcut keys are really convenient, skins aplenty, many features that Mz/FB lack... Mind you, I was an avid Netscape (up to 4.7) and Mozilla user, but since I discovered Opera I never turned back...

I guess I'm the only one here who uses Safari, the best browser available for Mac OS X! 8)

Well, as of lately I've been trying out a new and promising browser myself, Lynx. Maybe you've heard of it. Here's a screenshot:

Netscape 7.1 at home. IE6 in work, but since I have admin rights, I have also installed Opera, Firebird, Netscape. Well, I must have all of them since I am developing Java Servlets and JSPs. Most problems I have in development are with Opera though. Yes, fast enough, but a real pain in the arse if you are developing for it...

Yeah, indeed. I've been having some problems with css, however (i.e. sometimes they don't work at all) and picture holders, but what the heck, I love the multi-tabbed design and very clever auto-complete...

Cheers

PS Ever heard of arachne?

A small side note, Mozilla Firebird has been updated and is now called Mozilla Firefox.

Damn it! Firefox doesn't sound half as cool as Firebird.
