Internet Explorer still sucks

Very simple: Yahoo Fantasy Football would ALWAYS eventually hang and I would have to forcefully abort the ****ing program. F'ing retarded. I swear there are probably other script heavy sites that it can't handle but every other major browser could.

Re: Internet Explorer still sucks

Probably just to complain....lol!

If you're bent on using IE, download Firefox and the IE extension for it and you'll be OK. There are other browsers that kick the panties off of IE. Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari.

Only on my uni's labs because it somehow never remembers my history and whatnot, when I'm watching streams on vShare, or when I don't really want to see a gigantic blob of tabs to wait for in the better browser I use more often. I usually use SRWareIron, which is a Chromium spinoff. Firefox has the best address bar though.

You can set firefox to not save browsing history, cookies, etc....

You can also set it in private-browsing mode.....

I know all of that, but I'm a lazy dude and I've got a ton of tabs from years past on FF, even though I know I can just wipe out the last hour's excursions.

As already mentioned, I usually use SRWare Iron on my own comp. It's essentially Chrome without the privacy issues, whatever they may be.

Ton of tabs or bookmarks? Because FF does have an option where you can transfer those bookmarks from computer to computer....

Tabs, all from the last browsing sessions, and the session before that, and the session before that, and so on. It's been long overdue for a house cleaning, but since it's not my comp...

Re: Internet Explorer still sucks

I see...so your saving your browsing sessions....the more tabs you have running at once, the slower your browser is going to be, especially internet explorer.....
