" @President_BarackbarIt really wasn't because I didn't like it or anything, it literally just stopped working one day and I ditched it.I never understood the "tech savvy people use Chrome" argument. What exactly does it do differently and why does that let me have a better browsing experience? I always tend to go with one browser until it starts pissing me off. I used IE up to IE 8. When it stopped working, I switched to Firefox. Firefox does everything I need a browser to do.Interesting that you switche at IE8. That version is way way better than previous versions. "
" @JJWeatherman said:I have to use Chromium on Ubuntu and the only problem it gives me is sometimes things that are flash based will start to flicker like crazy. It's fine on Firefox but a crap shoot on Chromium." @xMP44x: Yeah, I've known about Chromium. As far as I know though, Canary Build is actually relatively stable while Chromium isn't. I wouldn't use it. "I've never actually had any problems with Chromium when I use it. Plus, the recolored version of the Chrome logo just looks good. "
I switched to Chrome because FF 3.6.13 broke Grooveshark pretty handily, but it runs fine in Chrome.
At work my boss, who's in charge of systems (as in all the computer maintenance, servers, etc.) said to use IE for the proprietary software that doesn't run, and Firefox for literally everything else, because it's safer.
We do get occasional virus problems, and they usually burn an afternoon's worth of time, at least for the computer, because it requires running a full SEP scan of everything.
It's all about the Chrome baby, though I understand why some people still stick around with Firefox. Change is hard.
Heck, I made a new friend a few weeks back who still used Internet Explorer... I wasn't going to have none of that.
That issue is now taken care of.
I use Internet Explorer on my laptop/home computer. I've never tried Chrome, but I use Firefox all the time (all the computers at my school are running Linux, and I also have Linux installed my laptop), and honestly I don't see any difference between the 2 besides button layout. Why exactly do people hate IE?
