Say What?

Ok. I'm going to admit it without caring about the abuse I will get from various people for not admitting it earlier (I'm looking at you, TimTam). I like Firefox more than Internet Explorer. There, I said it.

I don't really know why I didn't say it before, I guess it's just part of the "pride" package that comes with not using Wordpress for your blog. :)

The reason I'm bringing this up is because IE is being SO ANNOYING. Any viewers out there use IE? Yes? You're lying. If you were, you couldn't read this post. For some reason, IE is hiding the text of all of my posts, horribly disfiguring The Fourm and generally being mean to Four Island.

Does anyone know why this could be? It's not just IE 6, 7 is doing it too. I've tried using the IE 7 script (the one that makes IE into a standards-compliant browser) but it doesn't work for me. So, if anyone has any ideas, I'm open! I guess this is a question post, then.

The standard seems to be to link to the last question post in all question posts, so I'll try to do that here. I think the last one was Tag Clash, but I may be wrong. :)

And yes, this post's title is a clear indication that I've been watching too much Hannah Montana. :)

That is weird. I have just started complaining about Firefox, and here you are converting to it :D I have found that it uses too much of my RAM. Which is sad. But I still use it. And before Blue gets here, I shall jump to your defense and say "It's not that bad a show!"

Oh goodness, you people are never satisfied. At least you're not gloating like a soufflé (no clue how that makes any sense at all).

What browser would you suggest, then? And don't say Chrome, eww, it's WebKit-based. And has Safari in its UA string.

I am going to stick with Firefox for now, as there aren't any other browsers that have the same features. Wow, 4 posts without a "Recently, I"! Hmm... doesn't work... how about "[ i]"? Testing

There is so much choice in browser, but so little is actually worthwhile :(. I like Chrome, but wish that they would bring out more frequent updates for it. That was supposed to be the whole point of using Chrome, to get lots of updates and rapid improvement. That didn't happen. I don't care with how much memory a program uses (within reason), since I have plenty of RAM, and after all, it's useless unless you use it. What I don't like is programs using lots of CPU. That's why I moved away from Firefox; it guzzled through cycles like a Hummer.

ps I can't be bothered logging in, but it's BlueM937.

pps Hannah Montana is on too early in the morning for me to have an opinion.

ppps That doesn't mean it's not bad.

Firefox used to have a whole lot of slowdown for me, but since I posted this post, it seems be being nicer to me. :) Oh well, favoritism does make browsers happy.

Doesn't Chrome not even have add-on support yet? And doesn't it use WebKit, Apple's properity spin-off of already-bad KHTML, as it's parsing engine?

And isn't Hannah Montana at night too? Or is that just us Americans? :)
