re: Web Browser

On Apple devices (my main home computer is a Mac Mini) I use Safari most of the time. When using windows and linux I usually use Chrome, and sometimes Firefox. At work I use Internet Explorer. So guess I'm using most of the regular browsers Surprise

Chrome but certain items I have to access can only be accessed on Internet Explorer. It's the only time I use it and I resent it.

re: Web Browser

Handhelds: (iPhone and iPad) 100% Safari

Firefox on PCs 90% of the time, IE and Chrome the other 10% (I do a lot of testing and use multiple monitors, so multiple browsers are useful sometimes). Just bought a Mac for some development stuff, so will likely use Safari there. NOTE: Anyone using IE, be SURE to update your browser with the patch from Microsoft from last week. The security flaw was so bad (Heartbleed) that they actually released a patch for XP even though they announced end-of-support a month ago. This flaw allows bad guys to get at data on HTTPS screens (like bank and credit card login info).

re: Web Browser

FireFox 95% of the time. Chrome 4.5% and IE 0.5%.

However, it looks like Firefox V 29.0 has fixed problems that I had with streaming pop-up videos and conducting searches, so I may not need to use the other two anymore.

Thanks, Lars

Pretty sure I got the patch, but I am going to double-check. Heartbleed is one of the "baddest" of the bad guys to come our way in a while. Info from our members on issues like this is just one of many non-philatelic benefits to be had on Stamporama!

re: Web Browser

The only time I use Internet Explorer is when I need to install a web browser. Laughing
I prefer Firefox, especially because of the many add-ons, of which Adblock Plus is about the best and most useful one.

re: Web Browser

NoScript is even more important Happy I hate those scripts on a page that just keep a running "ping" going to say how long you were on a website... (If you ever notice a lot of sites keep the Chartbeat script running a LOT).

BuckaCover.com - 8,000+ new covers coming Thursday April 23

re: Web Browser

If you are looking for overall averages, check here:
http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

You will see that Internet Explorer has declined from 37% five years ago (2009) to 9% today.

This is compiled from W3Schools.com log files, so it does not truly represent the entire internet usage, as the visitors to this site are typically more Internet savvy (or at least trying to be) by going to the site to improve their web-writing skills. However, other similar surveys can be found using Google from other sites.

Another interesting report on this site is Display Resolution (size of computer screen).

re: Web Browser

Roy,

Well said! We have used those stats since 1999 in my business to define screen sizes and supported browsers.
