In my opinion Internet Explorer, which is one of the worst product from Microsoft! (Sorry, no offense! its just my opinion and I guess most others feel the same who thinks browser should be more innovative in making us more productive) How much time it takes to load the about:blank page. why Ctrl+E doesn't go to search box? sick of useless extensions/accelerators, why cant i do paste and go in address bar? why can’t i drag a tab out of tab group? does it ever pass ACID3 test ? Does it ever pass ACID ...
Some of you who use Firefox (FF) might know about a Firefox plug-in called “IE Tab” which allows you to view a page/tab using the Internet Explorer (IE) rendering engine INSIDE Firefox (so, if some page displays better in IE, you don’t have to leave FF and go open an IE window). Now, Google is doing something similar, but the other way around! Google has recently released “Google Chrome Frame”, a plug-in for IE that allows you to view a page/tab using the Google Browser “Google Chrome” rendering ...
In a response to local company email about IE 8 RC, I took some time to write an email to the internal mailing lists of Raya about testing websites with different browser versions. I found it good to share with the blog readers here, and, I know the company policy in Raya emphasizes sharing knowledge and efforts with the community. Here is the email I sent: For developer and QA testing I highly recommend using IE Tester http://www.my-debugbar.com/... It enables testing the website against ...
I’ve been playing around a bit with Google Chrome lately. I switched back to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 as it answered a lot of the frustrations that I was having with Google Chrome (some key pages I like not rendering correctly). Though, when I switched one of my computer’s operating system to Windows 7 Beta 1, I was even more frustrated. The IE that came installed on Windows 7 was a less than superior IE than what I could download off of the Microsoft site. I tried to install the latest IE ...
Have a look at the following investigation by Sam Allen..... "The author developed a program to snapshot memory usage per process every 3 seconds on Windows. Using this he recorded 3 hours of memory usage for five different browsers under real-world usage scenarios: Safari 3.1, Firefox 3, Flock 1.2 (a browser based on Firefox 2), Opera 9.5, and Internet Explorer 8. A million data points indicate that Firefox 3 has a surprising advantage over the other browsers tested. These are real-world tests and ...

Dear Firefox, You're fast and light-weight. You're pretty much everything I want in a browser. However, my browsing heart is not satisfied by you alone. See, I'm a developer, so I download a lot of tools that are wrapped in .exe and .msi files. When I want to use one of these tools, you make me download the file to the desktop before I can run it. I don't understand why you must clutter my desktop so much. I don't need the file on my computer, if I want it later, I'll just re-download it. I appreciate ...
