If you are running Win 7 64 bit and having problems with Flash on Firefox upgrade Firefox to Waterfox. Waterfox is Firefox crafted expressly for the 64 bit platform and you will no longer have problems with Flash.

I found that quite humorous. Haven't used IE since the advent of firefox. The commercial was entertaining the first time though.

I gave up on IE a LONG time ago....


But that's still funny!


Not really much into FF either though. It's a better browser than IE for sure. I've used Chrome, but wasn't overly impressed. Opera is my choice anymore.

I've been using Chrome because IE8 completely quit doing sound on the videos posted here. I haven't used FF in a while. I think Safari is the worst of them all.

Dang, guess I'm the only one left rocking with IE9. Not to flame or be flamed, I find IE is best browser for Windows platform. Got a Mac, use Safari. Linux, use Firefox.

Absolutely agreed IE is garbage its incredibly slow! Google chrome proves that simplicity is best sometimes, especially for browsers.

I use IE9.I don't think it's slow but then I have a 2.3.That might explain it.

Your not the only one.

The latest version with Win7 has been quite nice.

PEople who talk about not using IE9 because they found firefox
to be better than IE5, IE6, IE7 or IE8 are announcing their biases
and ignorance.

THE issue with IE9 is that for some obscure reason M$ decided to have the favorites bar turned off by default upon installation.
And it's childishly simple to turn it back on.

My father is an "I HATE Internet Explorer" kind of idiot
(you can tell him I said so, he hears it from me 3-4 times a week)
who has not actually used any Version of IE since IE5 was retired
and doesn't understand that saying he doesn't like IE TODAY is like
saying he doesn't like Fords because he prefered his 1955 Studebaker
over the 1955 Ford.

There is literally as much connection.

For me? when someone asks about Fire fox I reply "which week's version?"

I don't like the way that Chrome deals with organization of favorites.

Safari does things "Behind the curtain" that if Microsoft incorporated those features into IE you'd all be marching on Redmond with Pitchforks and
torches like the peasants in a 1930's Frankenstein movie.

I like having it off better; but then again, I don't have many sites saved as a favorite.
