IE 4 life.. :D

I hate FireFox. I must say FF crashes more than IE ever had on my system.
I like IE so far and I will like it even when I get really old.
I don't have any serious problems with Windows eather.
All OS'es have problems that can frustrate a user.

Linux is one of them. I tryed to install Red Hat for some years ago.
But it just didn't want to install. Why? Don't ask me. Nothing happend.
I said "Fuck linux! Windows is still far more superior". :P

After that I tested BeOS 5.0 PE. Witch was amazing.
At last I could test a new OS. I still like BeOS even if it's almost dead.
So there is other OS'es I can test. SkyOS is one of them. Looks alot better than Linux does.

But anyways. I didn't came here to post that I like Windows more than Linux.
I vote for IE and it will always be IE as long as I use "Windoze". ;)
BOOM!

Lol. Well I was stuck once, because my ISP's ISP cut off our internet, so I had to login to my shell that was located at a computer in the LAN that was connected through another ISP, so I managed to check my mails and download a few files I needed with LYNX, without actually having Internet.

About the poll.. Nothing to say except Firefoix rules. It has tons of extensions and is updated quickly. Firefox, with 5 open tabs, consumes 37 MB memory. IE, a single window, 21 MB. This is self-explainatory.

Can you tell me Grunt, what kind of PC do you have? Yes I can imagine : you have a 486 DX4 at 120 MHZ/32 mb SIMM/4gb HDD. *joke* ;)
What the hell I care about the RAM if I have 1gb/DDR ? And please dont tell me : I use LYNX because of RAM optimization .

You remember me to my Turbo Pascal Programing teacher, he said to me :
George don't use

Code: Select all

 Uses Crt; 

that overloads the computer's RAM, use only System Unit [/i]

I don't have to tell you what kind of PC we were using : 486 DX2 at 66 mhz/4 mb SIMM/20 mb HDD.
Damn God, the new generation has products to explode, more than 3 thousand MHZ of development. We are going to take advantage of it, or what?

Actually, no I don't. I bought a computer with Sempron 2200+ (1.5 GHz), 256 RAM, 40 GB HDD. But with more open programs, the memory still counts.

And I don't normally use LYNX, but I used it in that situation.

I have both Firefox and IE installed. I created a page using Dreamweaver MX, and on the preview, I tested it in both browsers. IE reported "Internet Explorer has restricted this page for showing active content that could harm your computer" and a JavaScript error as well. Firefox just loads the page without any problems.

Lynx is nice, and so is w3m, I use them for bots and stuff (they render the page, I just output.. ;p).
And, as mentioned before, if you are in a console environment it's useful as well.
I'm glad it's still being maintained ;)

That's true, I'm totaly agree.

Nevertheless, while FireFox is dedicated to fix those annoying "ActiveX", the thing become more complicated for them :
http://search.securityfocus.com/swsea ... y=firefox

Nothing is as it is drawn, products have errors, and if you don´t update, you remain with the hole. The title of that page is : 417 Results for [firefox] . (Yes I know, if I type internet explorer, it will show me a frightful number results with : More than 417 Results for [internet explorer] ) But this isn't for comparing reason, this is for let you guys know that, in my opinion, the product always will have errors since the programmer is not perfect. We must choose our product, the one that is to us more comfortable and thus to dedicate to update it and to personalize it to our taste and security.
I have used Internet Explorer the 3 years that I take in my university (University of Informatics Sciences has more than 10000 computers in its network) and believe me that I have never had serious problems with that application. Now I'm using FireFox, and yes it's true that is more capable in webs than iexplore, but I have to say that still it doesn't have things that Internet explorer offers. And I know that is a matter of time, when they implement those things in their application, then I'll change totally with much pleasure. :D

Whatever you say, it's just becoming more complicated for you, 'cause you don't use Linux yet ... so, be sure of what you're talking about, you'll not want to do a comparison, cause you know that NOBODY here in Cuba knows about how-to recompile a simple 2.4 kernel for example ;) I guess I'm typing posts here for a saturated reason.

what are u talking about??
complicated for who??
did u read my post...the last time I checked, I wasnt in the uci,
I think that havent changed at all...
its not the point if I use linux, or dont know how to compile a kernel,
knowledge is volatile,
the point is (in case u didnt get it) the uci will have to migrate to linux,
so get a better example of 1000...etc computer network using IE
and yes, to install firefox I didnt need to recompile anything...
;)
I didnt think I had to explain my post..

Yes, you don't have to explain your post 'cause I'm here at UCI and the ViceRector of Informatic Matters says :

No usaremos Linux hasta que no estemos capacitados, por ahora, tendremos que resolvernosla con Windows

Of course that you know the meaning of that, but if others wanna read :

We'll not gonna use Linux until we're capables, by now, we'll must fix our problem with Windows

I guess that was an experience/capable man. I didn't say a word in the meeting, 'cause I'm not able to do that in my position of Linux-newbie. If you have some information that our university does not know, just let me know about it. (Yes, Cuba will have to migrate on to Linux, but not yet ;) )

Y no hablo mas que me botan del foro :D
