Today’s entry is about web browsers.
music selection: “Get Ready” — Rare Earth
Everyone’s least favorite browser is Internet Exploder. You use it basically once, when you first turn on a new computer, to download a better browser. But what is a lizard to choose?
For some time now, I have been using Google Chrome. It was obviously better than IE. I liked the layout and features and thought it had an excellent RSS feeder. I had some issues though. When using multiple tabs, it was slow and would sometimes crash. Most importantly, it would make Pandora radio skip and drag (unacceptable!)
I have recently switched to Firefox. The transition was seamless thanks to a bookmarks import feature. I can now use a zillion tabs at once without a crash. And most importantly, I get superior performance from Pandora Radio (after down loading a compliant version of Flash.)
My only complaint is the RSS feeder. It doesn’t have a good feature to alert you to new content without doing a mouse hover over each bookmark. I am now sometimes late to new content from my favorite bloggers. I’ll have to go on an Easter Egg Hunt for a good third party option.
Also a bonus music selection because Pandora is killing it this morning: “Beast of Burden” — The Rolling Stones
Devour your prey raptors!
