Firefox and Politics

Virtually all Windows PCs ship with IE, giving it a 72% share of the browser market. Firefox, which is typically downloaded rather than factory installed, has a 17% market share, followed by Apple’s Safari at 5%. This is a nice improvement over the old days when IE was well into the 90%. Firefox is slowly […]

Firefox Rolls On

Just a quick entry to note that Firefox has crossed the 500 million download mark. That’s a half- billion downloads. Or to put it in numbers 500,000,000 downloads and counting.

For several years, IE has commanded in excess of 95% share of the web browser market despite the fact it sucks more than a nymphomaniac in heat (this applies across all […]

Computer Things That Vex Me

Many go months without a change. I miss that feature. Any way to make it happen on Firefox Mac? I use MacLink Plus to convert […]

Boogers, Blogs, and Browsers

Don’t you just hate when my subject line in unrelated to the contents of the post? Should I stop? I’ll take opinions on that. I’m back to Firefox. Happily, it now works with my bank’s site. They didn’t fix Firefox, so they must have fixed my bank’s site. That was why I went back to […]
