    I have a super quick browsing speed because I use LucidPuppy as my OS when browsing. It runs off your RAM, essentially, so anything you open is already opened. If I need to do anything worthwhile I switch to Kubuntu. Besides this point I use firefox now. I was a Chrome user but I hate Google. I also now search with duckduckgo.com
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    EEEeeeKYyy !!!!!

    Ummm wat sarragossa is doing -using dat ram would just kill dino oh so quickly !!!!

    Sproutums dinosour of a pc doesnt even have 32 mbs of ram. So sprouty wouldnt ever even attempt to run anythang like wat saragossa is doing to gain dl speed off da browser like dat on dino.

    Sproutys dad all upgraded ems laptop with the newest safeguards & also some kinda online gaming turbo. Might be awsomes when it comes time to set that Space InVadeRs highScore, right now meh in second place. Got that highscore with dino late one nite

    Sprouts has two pcs-one being a dino & da other a beastie laptop(alien technology) with ram that saragossa could be proud of

    Um Meh dad is suggesting strongly that sprouty get another browser & have two browsers. Just in case of being highjacked mainly ems said. Is there any merit to wat meh dad is proposing here :?

    Yes it is. There are a few sites still not adapted for it though, even now. But for well over a year I've been using it, so would need to change my poll vote.

    I was checking my Hotmail account from my work computer today, (where I must use an old version of IE6.0 to remain compatable with an internal program) and I noticed a graphical advertisment offering to test your IQ. It was actually one of those simple colour blindness tests rather than any form of actual IQ test, and those viewing it were asked to select the number they saw, which apparently represented their IQ. As an incentive, those who responded were promised the ability to "Stand a chance to win an Apple Product!".

    The IQ numbers were all so low that it cracked me up and I couldn't resist grabbing the graphic (and removing the link to whatever spam place it went to). I was going to place the picture in the random pictures thread, but after reading the more recent posts here, I felt that this thread was more relevant.

    Obviously this test was designed for Internet Explorer users like myself!

    So please look at the picture, and let everyone know what number you see... apparently that is your IQ!

    I use Opera for my mobile phone browser as well - it's faster than the Symbian browser, which is good enough for me!
