    I use Chrome on my Windows PC, while Firefox on the Linux machine since there isn't a Linux version of Chrome yet.

    Yeah, and less dodgy (error, needs to close) than IE.

    IE being the browser that was bundled free with Windoze which snipped Netscape.

    Hello. Any of you planks actually home and have the benefit of having the lights on? Do I have to do the thinking for every blinking one of you?

    I assume that this is a reference to Col. Sebastian Moran (chief offsider of Prof. Moriarty) who, as you will recall, had a potshot at a wax bust of Sherlock Holmes in "The Adventure of the Empty House". (I am indebted to Dr John H Watson MD for this information.)

    Alas no, not a reference - and indeed I am left entirely wanting. Mine was a much simpler and cruder reference to a funny that Boris put up in one of the (many) Tool debunking threads (Tool's own deplorable grammar and spelling IIRC).

    Also, I have found Mozilla Firefox to be much more reliable than IE. For some reason my IE often "breaks". Now I hardly ever use it.

    What didn't you like about Firefox, Jono? It sings! Try latest download.

    Yes I too have many browsers: Mozilla, Flock (Netscape update), Safari and IE. And yes I have to use IE for MS Windows updates too. Not much else.

    Bill may or may not be able to but I can. The version that I used looked very much like the Mac version but with the standard(ish) window manipulation widgets at the top right and the menu bar contained within the appliation window. That is, of course, one of my major gripes with Windows. The amount of screen real estate regained is negligible and it essentially breaks Fitts's Law.

    It was also crash-prone and buggy.

    I use Safari almost exclusively on the Mac as Firefox, although its looks have improved, remains as slow as a wet week on that platform.

    I've just sacked IE; one bloody crash too many. I'll probably have to use it for certain updates though. My wife and a number of my colleagues like Firefox 3, but I'm trying Chrome (e.g. right now).
