    Mac is the bomb. Unix is built right in.

    And switching to Linux (Mint, Ubuntu, whatever) is not very easy the first time.

    I'll switch to Firefox in the AM. Thanks.

    Here are the extensions (all free and none are toolbars) I use in Firefox that make browsing much less painful:
    • Adblock plus actually speeds up browsing by not downloading ads on every page. It has a couple companion extensions to block popups and fake popups
    • Ghostery to inform me of and allow me to block tracking by various companies over multiple sites.
    • Form History Control when filling out forms, right-clicking gives better control of things I've previously filled into them.
    • TabSubmit to ensure I don't lose what I entered into a form on a page, this lets me middle-click the submit button which opens the result in a new tab.
    • Re-pagination for combining multi-page articles into one, so I can then use Ctrl F to find text in much easier.
    • Resurrect Pages when I want to check a page I bookmarked long ago which has since been removed, this finds the old version.
    • InlineDisposition for sites that wrongfully use the "attachment" header with a file link which always prompts me asking what to do without remembering my choice, this solves that.
    You'll see all these installed when from the Firefox button (top left) you choose "Add-ons", a new tab will open and in that you can click on "Extensions" to see them listed. You may also want to check that list for extensions you didn't choose to install, but other software on your computer injected it anyway, and here you can click on each of them and click the "Disable" button. Similarly you can click on the "Plugins" in the same tab to see and disable unnecessary plugins that other software also injected into Firefox (usually everything except the Flash plugin is unnecessary)

    Agree, there is a learning curve and it is a change, but for some well worth it.

    The trick is to get people to switch their applications over to cross-platform alternatives, then when they switch to linux they'll already be experienced with the apps without needing to learn everything new from scratch.
  16. Saul Goodman Member

    Not for me. I suggest trying them and if you don't like, delete. No Firefox add-ons slow things down, unless you have problems that are outside Firefox.
  17. Saul Goodman Member

    I would never suggest a Windows user to just change their computer to Linux without any help or experience. Dude is having trouble with IE, let's move a little slower.

    I did the change once,out of nowhere. Was actually pretty awesome in some ways, made me know Multiprotocol clients (I still love Pidgin,but is like an ex boyfriend: I love him but I hate him at the same time) , and the awesomeness that is to have plugins and addons and complements for an OS. That was actually pretty cool to have!

    I couldn't run EVERYTHING,but it was a nice experience.
    I could maneuver with Xubuntu Hardy Heron until I finally lost it with terminal.
    After terminal...I just gave up. You need to know about that stuff to handle it,and sadly I just had a programmer boyfriend,not an entire Support service for me.

    But again,you're right. We are talking just about web browsers,no DIRECTLY SWAP OS.
    So,back on track...which is everyone favorite web browser or IM client? Surprise me.
  19. Chipshotz Member

    I don't think we're advocating an OS switch, just getting slightly off topic.

    anything but IE. ANYTHING.
  23. As a daily Outlook user I can assure you it does neither.

    Although I am still on Outlook 2003. Is the new one any less crashy?

    Snow Leopard's built-in email prog is surprisingly good.
  24. slobeck Member

    i use Firefox and Chrome. Depending on the OS. I have multiple 'puters.

    people still use IE? last good version was 5 (and was the last one on mac), and that was over 10 years ago.

    I should note, that I like chrome from a web design stand point. I like using the "Canary" build of Chrome so it has all the latest and greatest new stuff in it. They update it automatically every week or so. That opinion and nearly $3 will get you some awful coffee drink at Starbucks.

    Version 3, huh?

    Newbie.

    /me thanks God Flash has been roundly fucked by a variety of market forces.

    The more add-ons one has, the more slowly Firefox loads; however, this won't affect speed during actual use.

    Macs are for flaming homosexuals.

    Go for it, Smurf.

    Real Men use the command line. Or even better, punch cards.

    User interfaces are for girly-men.

    Macs have improved, now it's just overpriced Unix.
