Been There – Done That

Yesterday, Microsoft launched their new flagship browser, IE9. I downloaded it and tried it. Yes, it does look nice on Windows 7, but it causes me problems with a web page I frequent. While it is still in my PC, I have stopped using it.

However, while studying IE9, I found that FireFox has released version 4.0RC, so I downloaded it. I like it. In fact, I liked it well enough that I set it as my main browser. Normally I wait for the RC version to be changed to the final version, but I didn’t in this instance.

I had been using Google’s Chrome browser as my everyday browser, but it also has one page I look at once every couple of months that it doesn’t render correctly and when I go to that page, I have to use FireFox. Now I don’t have to use anything but FireFox.

  1. Hi Don,

    I had almost forgotten there was such a thing as Internet Explorer
    as I use Firefox/Chrome pretty much exclusively. Your reference to
    IE was the second one in two days, the other (which made me LOL)
    was from an online book I’m reading (and thoroughly enjoy)
    called Little Brother by Cory Doctorow doctorow@craphound.com.

    “It was a lockeddown
    spyware version of Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s crashware
    turd that no one under the age of 40 used voluntarily.”

    Cheers,

  2. Don,

    On another subject, I have tried installing the new windows 7 service pack1(x64) with no luck.. I tried it multiple times while I was in Panama and could not get passed the download.. now that I am home in Arizona, I was able to download but failed during the load process… any help would be appreciated..

  3. Hi Steve. Fortunately for me, I had no problem with the upgrade. I assume you have Googled the problem because that is the first place I would start. If you contact me off line I will try to research the problem and solution for you.
