Yes, he deserves to bite the dust if he's using Internet Explorer...

Oh, and no one give me any of that Google Chrome noise... Nonsense. :p

Firefox, FTW.

Sweet, I'm glad someone else see's the light :D . . .

Everyone else always says that I'm being fan boyish . . . !!

IE = Good Compatibility but Too Slow
Chrome = Quick but Crap Compatibility (fails to load a lot of webpages)
FireFox = Best of both worlds, Extremely Quick and Excellent Compatibility


Like the gif by the way *yoink* :wink: . . .

Ask any webdev about IE's compatibility and they will say it's crap. There are so many hacky things you have to do to get your site working on IE.

Chrome = Quick but Crap Compatibility (fails to load a lot of webpages)

I'm a Chrome user and have never ever had website compatibility issues. In fact, what you say is true, only that you have to turn it the other way around. IE (prior to version 9) is crap at web standards, followed by Firefox, then Chrome.

Here's the first page google results from "IE Standards".

<!-- m -->http://news.cnet.com...32-5088642.html<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://blogs.msdn.co... ... 91362.aspx<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://www.sitepoint...s-chris-wilson/<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://www.positioni.../ie-primer.html<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://chrisberryont... ... o-english/<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://news.softpedi... ... 6002.shtml<!-- m -->

The last one is optimistic, but it talks about CSS 2.1 as if it's amazing that IE supports it. Chrome and FireFox already support CSS 3.

The blogs.msdn one, which is written by Microsoft, admits that they don't have good standards support.


A lot of the time they make up their own rules. Here's how IE expects you to tell it something should be 50% transparent.
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=50)";
The standard way, which is supported by almost all other browsers:
opacity: 0.5;

Really I'm a little confused why IE didn't go with the much simpler approach. It's almost like they want to make it hard for us.

I could go on, but I think you get the point.

I've had many of sites not loading in Chrome but loading in IE and Firefox fine . . .
It's quick but it was just getting annoying as I really needed to get on these sites and Chrome just weren't having it . . .

I shall have to take your word for that then, I haven't had that much experience with making a website if I'm honest . . .

I think for me, Firefox is the best for my usage, and other people may prefer Chrome for their needs and IE for their needs also . . .

I guess at the end of the day, it's personal preference . . .

Quite a good off topic spin . . . !!

Now, to better my original script to terminate all spammers :twisted: . . .

I think you use Internet Explorer, Chris. ;P

A lot.

That's why it's part of your "terminate all spammers" code. :-)

Just comes natural, doesn't it?

Haha, I used to lol . . .

But I never use it now because it takes so long to load up :wink: . . .

I just used that to try and stop people saying "Firefox sucks, why do you use that?" . . .

Although my sig does invoke people to make comments though lol :wink: . . .

I'll update the code for all the superior Firefox users :p . . .

Loop
{
IfWinExist, Autohotkey.com - Mozilla Firefox
{
GuiControlGet, SpammerID
Process, Close, %SpammerID%
MsgBox, Another Spammer Bites The Dust!
GuiControl,, ProgressBar, +0.001
GuiControlGet, SpammerAmount
If ( SpammerAmount > PreviousSpammerAmount )
GuiControl,, ProgressBar, -0.001
MsgBox, There are %SpammerAmount% Spammers Left, We Will Keep Destroying Them!
PreviousSpammerAmount = SpammerAmount
}
Sleep, 500
}

Perfect . . . !!

Mind linking to several sites Chrome doesn't work with . . . ?
I've never found even one . . . !!
This style of writing is kind of fun . . .
I hate webdev for IE . . . >:-(
Even the simple CSS rules used on my help page for my IRC bot don't work in IE . . . :(
And ShoesWholesale, I want your cheap shoes! where are they . . . ?

I would nimda, if I had them still :? . . .

They were old product support webpages, and no matter what, they wouldn't load with Chrome, it was a while ago, but they loaded fine with FF so I switched to that as I was using the website regularly at the
time . . .

I just can't think for the life of me what they were now . . . !!

Then again, Chrome has had a few updates since then, so you never know, they may work now . . .

I've never experienced IE failing to load a webpage . . .

But then again, I haven't used webdev and the likes . . .

PS, you've almost got the writing style off to a tee, there's just two important steps to gain true mastery . . .

1. Questions need a double question mark like so . . . ??
2. Smileys come before the triple spaced dots like so :D . . .

But you're not far from it now nimda lol :wink: . . .

I couldn't get that webpage to open nimda . . .

Not Found

The requested URL /web/help.html was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache Server at <!-- w -->www.bugz000.co.uk<!-- w --> Port 80

. . . ??

However, when I tried the Apache Server that worked fine in FF5 and IE9 and Chrome (Don't know version, latest I think) . . .

Haha, be careful, I found it very addicting, now look at me . . . !!

As I do a bit of webdev myself, Chrome is the browser to use.

<!-- m -->http://html5test.com/results.html<!-- m -->

Granted, sites like that may be biased or not comprehensive, but it does give an idea on how the different browsers match up to the new HTML5 standards.

I used to be a big FF advocate, but I quite using it when Chrome showed up with faster page loads and faster initial loading overall. Granted, I haven't used FF since the early days of FF4, but I have not found a need to change from Chrome (Except for stupid sites that require IE...then I use Opera and mask :p )

since we are on the topic of browser compat. and speed:

in my personal testing, I found:
[*:7kiylbr6]* IE7 was faster then FF2 (both were the latest browsers by the manufacturer at the time)
[*:7kiylbr6]* IE8 was faster then FF3 (both were the latest browsers by the manufacturer at the time)
[*:7kiylbr6]Opera and Chrome have addons too. it's not a FF only thing. (though, Opera is fairly new to it. It'll soon be full of thousands of pointless extensions, just like FF :D)
[*:7kiylbr6]From years of dealing with FF extremism, I have realized that many FF users (and even in recent times) still think that IE is still at IE6. So many FF users I've seen I've seen have been comparing FF3 and 4 to IE6, 1-2 generations behind. that's like comparing Playstation3 to Playstation1.
Note: I have given every major FF version (1,2,3,4) a try since version 1.

* = loading up a random webpage I have never been on before. FF had no plugins. fresh install. this is not including startup time of the browser.
_________

Also, I have never seen more extreme fanboys then the ones that use FF. case and point, the GIF at the top of the page and chrisj's signature.
I have never seen any other browser logo (eat|beat|smash|attack|bash|push|flame|taunt|kill|harm) another browsers logo. It's extremism and childish, IMHO.

anywho, I use:
Laptop: Maxthon3 (has a dual engine. Chrome and IE) as main, Opera or IE8 as backup (depends on my mood :p)
Desktop: Opera as main, IE8 as backup.

rawr. be very afraid
