This is why you get warnings. :argh: Three letter post, bah.
You need to combine lots of short posts together, like saying "lol", then stating your opinion about the subject, all in ONE post.
Also putting thought into your posts gives extra brownie points.

On a completely different note, I think that IE ipecac fails, and firefox is a close second to chrome. :grin:

I use firefox. The only way to go for me!

And when im on my other computer, when ever I try to go to a site it usally opens a new tab in firefox anyway, go firefox! Go up firefox! IE is okay but i would barely try to use it.

Firefox is my favorite browser, it's nearly as fast as Opera or Chrome, but it has a better front end. I love it cos you can customize it so much, with Opera it's awesome but not too customizable, with Chrome it's good but it still almost seems like a prototype, it's got a few dodgy glitches that are often non repeatable and so they're hard to report. Also, FF is compatible with almost every site in the entire internetz. The only reason I don't use Opera, in truth, is that Aviary.com has some kind of glitch in which the app for editing stuff is resized to such a small size it's impossible to work in. This is jst an example, similar things happen in other sites.

Hmm, I find it interesting that there are more Opera users than Chrome users. Maybe it's just me...

Chrome Rocks! That's all I have to say.

(I was surprised with all the Opera users! I just can't believe that it has more users than chrome!)

i find it funny how some IE users criticize FF even though if they use IE, they most likely havent downloaded FF and used it, they are just saying FF is bad so they dont look bad using IE. im not saying that is EVERYONE who uses IE. and people who use FF have defnitely used IE for some time, unless they got there first computer and downloaded FF right away.

plus FF is snazzy -.o
and also, FF has a "Copy Image Location" so you can share images with links etc.

Seriously, only four posts since August? Now I have even MORE reasons to love FF!
- Personas: They have so many awesome designs, but guess what happens if you don't like any of them? You can upload your own!
- Support: The only site I know of that doesn't support FF is Microsoft.com (and would you expect them to?)
- It comes bundled with Linux, I don't even have to open IE once when I get the new computer (I usually use another computer, either a Mac or a computer with FF, to get the boot disk so I don't have to agree to Microsoft's EULA and I can refund Windows, a product that didn't have to be sold with the computer and that I did not wish to buy)
- Speed: I don't know what you guys are talking about that Chrome is faster, I've used Chrome, Opera, IE (only to download any of said other browsers before I switched to Linux) and obviously FF. I think Opera is by far the fastest, but I like FF a lot better, mostly because of the addons and the support. FF I think is second, followed closely by Chrome. IE doesn't even make the list. If my browser has more (security) holes than Swiss cheese, sorry, but I'm switching to another browser.

[quote=Mrcontraptionne]...unless they got there first computer and downloaded FF right away.[/quote]
I did that with all the Windows computers I ever had, until I discovered the joys of Linux, which, as stated above, comes bundled with FF.

Awesomeness.

I'm really out of it, what is Linux? is it another OS or another set of OSes or what? :S

Linux is a kind of operating system. A free one which has a lot of capabilities and is theoretically more stable, but is also very difficult to set up.

Thats the only thing to do since obviously none of them understand why bumping old threads is bad.

Exactly. Bumping is bad. I especially hate it when a random spammer makes an account just to spam and pointlessly bump threads. There should be an autolock feature of some sort.
