'Google's Chrome is the third most used browser in the United States.'

Agreed.
But some times you just gotta grow a pair. :icon_razz:

Also, don't blame chrome because this place is out of date and it doesn't render properly.


If we could some how update the software, we should be as good as gold. I'm on plenty of other forums using VBulliten and chrome has no issues with it.

Chrome still crashes alot with me, but it seems to have no problem with the CoG. Firefox, on the other hand, doesn't crash but won't show me any pop up or drop down menus anymore. (ie I can't use any smilies that aren't showing to the right of the reply box) :mad:

While chrome is superior it lacks the stability unlike Firefox.

superior

I know this thread is a bit old, but Chrome has actually been more popular than Safari for a while. Depending on your source, it may be earlier or later than others.

Though I think we can all agree on one thing... Internet Explorer SUCKS and needs to be knocked off of it's first place pedestal. Also, Microsoft needs to allow me to uninstall the junk, not just turn it off.

Compatibility

hehehehe

no disrespect
don't want to
in any way
feel threatened

this is an ongoing big fun debate
winblows mac linux
you'll find it in multiple threads

now
compatibility?
with what?

linux reads and handles all microsux files
(excluding the .lit's for the book thing)
the only software not compatible is
microsux on purpose
linux can read and handle all of theirs
but they choose not to allow any of
their uses to use open office etc

wine enables linux to run
(most, not all) winblows
and every piece of ms software
has a far superior version for linux

why would anyone want to be compatible
when they can be superior?
(this is where RZM and the mac's jump in)

welcome again
and understand this is just playing around

Interesting. Besides a few compatibility issues I've found Chrome to have relatively few bugs and errors, at the very least, less than some of the other browser giants like IE or Firefox (though Firefox is an exceptional platform also).

the last time i played with chrome
was about april
it was buggy
wouldn't even display all the CoG
that alone was enough to make me
leave it
it had some really cool functions/apps
but lacked the stability of firefox
i do play with alot of others depends on what i'm doing
epiphany, (fast, light, stable, really stripped down, no bells and whistles)
seamonkey (bulky but any browser that comes with its own programming suite is fun),
galleon (no redeeming qualities whatsoever)
conqeror & konqeror (bland but stable, lots of fun when your playing on sites that want you to use IE, drives them nuts especially when your using proxies)
IE of course like all microsux, sux, its buggy, virus prone, has more holes than swiss cheese and isn't allowed on any machine i touch

i'll pull down chrome again and try the latest
maybe they've got it ironed out now

ps, welcome to the CoG kev

Yes, I'm very aware of Wine, but it's not total compatibility. Often, when I need a certain task to be done that requires a specific program, I go browse C-Net for what I need. Most of the programs on there are only for Windows. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Linux, but it's not right for me. I'm sure Macs are great too, but I've only had the privilege to try them in stores (the prices are through the roof :P).

Haha. :D

Erm... I just typed it in... Was there another poster who had this username before?

Thanks for the welcome, btw!

The only thing I've found with Chrome is that at one point in time, it would have constant plugin errors for YouTube. Luckily it's been resolved. But what part of CoG isn't displayed?

heheheh
what program do you need for winblows
that there is not a superior version in linux?

and your right about wine not being 100% compatible
but frankly I deleted it years ago because anything
i wanted to run under it, i could do better with a deb
version of it

(waiting patiently for the mac attack on cost effective)

I frequently install many different programs, so there isn't really one in particular.

Although the big problem I had with it was that Linux could not detect my EasyCAP (video capture) device properly because it acts a bit like a webcam. The only way I could get it to work was without sound. Apparently, it's not an uncommon problem.

Anyway, I'm sure when I move out and have to buy everything on my own, I'll opt for free Linux alternatives to everything.

dunno what the prob is
which version were you using?
(9.04 is stable as heck)
get the progs you need with
Administration
Synaptic package manager

also look into getdeb.net

if your really into AV
try UbuntuStudio
pull that down as an ISO
and install it
should have everything you want
