I love the final quote

I've decided after the headlines about: http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/stop-using- ... CAD5920658

I will miss IE as I do like it regardless, just downloaded Firefox but when IE is patched I will probably go back to using it. :mrgreen:

I'm still on Windows XP. I don't have the luxury of having it patched again. I'll have to use Firefox instead.

I use firefox at work and have switched to opera for home. Like Q I'm still on XP and having used 8 there is no way I'm going to switch to that pile of rubbish

I'm still on XP but as the with IE8, I like XP brilliant piece of sofware, like you Mad I won't shift to Win 8, Win 7 is on my laptop not to keen on that either, they will patch all as it affects all versions of IE up to 11so when it comes out it should fix IE8 as well. :mrgreen:

Posting from the latest version of Firefox. I'm not used to this. I don't care what you people say about IE, I'm used to it, and I hate change. :evil:

I was having some problems with IE a few weeks ago so switched to Chrome. Once I got used to it, I quite like it. If I have ever got to have Windows 8, I shall be converting it to the Windows 7 format.

I've found chrome to be a bit intrusive as to the info it collects on you, (it was installed on my Win7 with IE11) laptop which I quickly got rid of but it did not want to go without a fight typical of google now they have went a bit to the darkside they have Obi Wan. :mrgreen:

One thing I hate about Mozilla is that it chews up CPU usage when playing Flash videos, which makes it difficult for me to watch Dragonball Z Abridged and Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged on Blip.TV. :x

Microsoft has fixed the big Internet Explorer bug -- even on Windows XP http://cnet.co/1miiMkd :D after it has downloaded by auto update I will go back to using IE, some things about Firefox I like others I dont like all the graphic thumbnails it displays from sites visited, that must take up quite a bit of memory.

Hey, aren't I allowed to be annoyed about trivia?

Of course, here's a less trivial thing...

Downloaded patch (I got rid of automatic updates last year after it caused the CPU to rev up, so I just had to check regularly for updates). Still using Firefox for the time being.
