So how many hours until there's a zero day exploit discovered in the code? 48?
Do people bother with those for release candidates? I usually thought people prefer playing with final versions.
I use IE9, I hope to get IE10 soon.
Quite a turnaround in what was the least favoured of the Big 5 browsers not long ago, it's up there with Chrome these days.
Also, with regards to speed, isn't that down to how good your internet connection is? Browsers give you access to the internet but however good they are they'll be slow as **** if you have crappy connection.
I feel like with connections these days, rendering speed (lots of complex code out there now) is probably more important than connection speed.
Really depends on the pipes, but for the most part, yeah.
Good point. 96.
Firefox all the way
Is there a 64 bit version of Firefox that supports flash yet?
All the computers in my building are going exclusively to Firefox as Internet Explorer will no longer be supported by our system (I learned this after asking permission for either myself or the tech facilitator to upgrade all the browsers, as they are still running IE from two versions ago). And of course as things go, I got a notice on one of the computers today that Firefox needs an upgrade. We use flash so I'm taking a guess that the new version supports it, although I don't know to what level.
I run Chrome on my home PC.
That'll probably be the 32 bit version on 64 bit windows. If you open up task manager there'll either be a 32 or a 64 next to the firefox.exe.
Tried Chrome, but it increased the problems I get every so often with my Intel wireless card throwing hissy fits. Firefox just seems to take it in its stride and muscle through it.
