[QUOTE=GMan003;29972927]Yeah, I think I might do that. Especially since I tend to leave a browser window open when gaming, and my GPU is usually the bottleneck, not my CPU. Other than that, though, seems great. I might switch back from Chrome, especially if they go through with their "remove the address bar" idea.[/QUOTE] [url]https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/prospector-lessChrome-HD/[/url] I actually read that post wrong. If you want to get rid of it, the extension I linked will hide and show it automagically.

I've been using it since yesterday or the day before. Works flawlessly for me. [editline]21st May 2011[/editline] automerge :argh:
I use chrome for the nippy html5/JS vs. firefox and the quick UI, but I wish chrome was as extensible as firefox. Oh well.

I used Chrome for 2 days. Why? Because I didn't find a way to disable the "Most visited places" thing when you open it up, I got tired of seeing a bunch of porn websites there :ninja:
i just got my network card, the driver cd was some weird Asian math exam software. I popped it in and bam, just asian shit, me and my friend were just staring at the screen for five minutes, how the fuck do they mess that up [img]http://imageshack.us/m/821/9724/thesearentdrivers.png[/img] [img]http://imageshack.us/m/717/2176/55933571.jpg[/img] [img]http://imageshack.us/m/7/5429/73952940.jpg[/img] hhhh
IE6 to start with *shudder* > FF3 > Chrome > Quick try with Opera > FF4 (Current)
and I haven't found a single browser other than Opera that doesn't completely close when you press CTRL+W on the last tab :argh: My mergeeeeeee

[QUOTE=leach139;29973507]That image should be considered on par with severe gore, no man should have to look at it[/QUOTE] Worst thing was that when i was an intern at a IT-Support company a while back i got the assignment to install windows and various programs on a laptop and then head over to the company that ordered it. Anyway i installed Win7 and the programs on the list. But when i delivered they grabbed hold of me just as i walked out the door and said that a program was missing. I checked the list and could not find any issue. So i asked them and they said Internet Explorer. I showed them that it was already installed. The answer was "No, That is not Internet Explorer" and proceeded to show me IE6 installed on another computer And so came the day that i actually installed IE6 on a brand new laptop, On Windows 7. Felt bad

Same with Opera, only had that installed for a very short amount of time.
I think this whole lineage of browsers thing falls into the category of speedtests... What is up with people today falling into these trends...
[QUOTE=Squad;29973995]I think this whole lineage of browsers thing falls into the category of speedtests... What is up with people today falling into these trends...[/QUOTE] This is a good one, though, since you can actually discuss why you used them all. Plus, it's not a dick-waving contest like speedtests or that crap. No browser is universally agreed to be the best.

It seems that all the computers the mechanics use are IE6, and the ones that the managers, sales, and other staff use all use IE 8. Apparently, the mechanics don't deserve a half decent browser made in the past decade.
