[ D.I.E. ] Death to Internet Explorer


This is a club for all users @ MAL who Hate to use IE and use ANY other kind of browser to browse there anime, info, hentai (;D), or whatever you use it for :D


*Inactive or dropped | actively supported | just updated
Got more? New version came out?
PM me and i'll add update the list.

Servey for most anticipated new browser in 2009

************D.I.E.'s News ************

In the previous article i gave some insight of what browser developers are working on to keep us happy. Today, I will give a more visual breakdown from the user's (not developer's like i usually do) point of view.

First up is JavaScript Core execution benchmark

Don't you just love the shape of it?

A more thorough JavaScript benchmark:

And my favorite

Add Latest Safari Alpha as 100%
I just love how opera has always been very compliant with standards. And it has more consistent look than even FF across OSs. If only the community would make widgets that are actually useful like what FF community makes, i would go back to using it (why do i want aquarium in my web browser and a half baked HttpHeader monitor).

Lets also look at global market share

(and i don't understand why data is so different over at http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

As for me, i am slammed with another program to make, for school this time, that keeps track of MAC addresses on our wireless network + more homework. So i will once again have a hard time finding time to work on my ideas for DIE :(

************ What others say ************

Microsoft admits IE is unsafe and users should be cautious while using it.

We all have issues: Firefox Myths. These are true, actually...

Usefull FF 3 features you may not have known

The U.S. government's Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) is warning Web surfers to stop using Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) browser.

Top 10 new FF3 features + a performance test


We did it!

We set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. With your help we reached 8,002,530 downloads.

You are now part of a World Record and the proud owner of the best version of Firefox yet!

Don't forget to download your very own certificate for helping set a Guinness World Record.


************A tribute to IE***************
We all hate IE and thats a right thing to do but lets not forget that every evil has some goodness in it.
IE is an important browser. Without IE, we would never know what its like to have a bad internet browsing experience and good browsers like FireFox would not get the praise and a title of "the best" because they would just be ordinary good browsers. But with IE on the market FireFox truly shines: IE's existence makes all other browsers look good, even lynx (and yes, text-only mode looks better any day than what IE does with CSS and images).
Finally, without IE we would not know what a browser should not be and once again, FF would probably not be so great if its developers had no reference as to what they should not do. IE is a one stop place for referencing what a browser should not be."

sadly i have not enough time to maintain this club, i never had :P

either way im too lazy :P if anyone thinks there up to it, feel free to message me on my profile and il be sure you will be granted the tools you need

Yeah, it's nothing new for other browsers, but I do appreciate the change on FF's part. As for the club, it could still be a decent place for talking about browsers regardless of one's current attitude towards IE.

@QueenHarlette: Maybe you're still using one of the beta versions? The one that I have on the Linux partition was updated about a month ago and it still fits your description. As for the tabs, I do purge them every now and then but that usually only happens after I'm done with a major task. In the meantime, I keep them open for easy reference.

I believe Yunnagi goes to TVTropes, at least for discussions on Madoka. That's one website where you can have dozens of tabs open without even trying.

Still, I generally "only" have about 5-20 tabs open at a time in one window. I like to have separate browser windows open for different things, though.

Rosa_FOEtida | Apr 19, 2011 12:33 PM

That style is nothing new. Google Chrome has been has be using that style of tabs from the beginning, I believe. Firefox is only copying it.

Opera also shows its tabs above the address bar, although not on the same level as the maximize/minimize/close buttons

Hell, even the latest version of the browser that must not be named has the tabs like that.

Speaking of the browser that must not be named, do you think this club is a bit obsolete now with version 9 released, or is it still insecure enough to warrant this club to exist? Standards compliance doesn't appear to be an issue anymore at the very least.

VyraLove | Apr 19, 2011 12:23 PM
My FF4 doesn't look like that to me. I still have the window title bar and then the File/Edit/etc menu, and then the tabs.

And really? 300-700 tabs? Do you -really- need that much? >_>

Yuunagi | Apr 19, 2011 11:52 AM
Firefox 4's out and I've been giving it a test drive. The most notable change in the UI is the transfer of the tabs to what used to be the window title bar. Quite an improvement that saves space and gives the personas add-on a much more personal look.

It remains to be seen if this version would do a better job of handling my usual 300-700+ tab sessions, but that'll come naturally in about 2 or 3 weeks.

crowfield | Jul 30, 2010 6:57 AM
hmmmz, looks like this club aint active as it used to be >.<"

i'd better start managing again?

Yuunagi | Jul 10, 2010 7:19 AM
Been trying out other browsers lately on Ubuntu. Can't install Chromium from the software center because it seems that their server is down. Epiphany crashed once after an hour, SeaMonkey died twice within ten minutes, both with just around 15 tabs open (compared to FF which easily handles over 200 on my machine).

Any more stable alternatives?
