    Apparently that advertisement campaign never reached Germany.
    Admittedly, we've only just begun exploring the uses, but if people stick to MSIE saying "that's good enough for the current web", we get a chicken/egg problem. Without better browsers, we don't get new web applications. Without new web applications, we don't get better browsers.

    Something I'm not allowed to give any details about, including my participation with the current stage of testing which may or may not be Alpha.

    Not really. If you go ahead and make the websites anyway, whether they work in MSIE or not, then people and I will be forced to use a better browser.

    Anyway Im just testing out Google Chrome, been meaning to test it out for ages, but kept on forgetting.

    I'm a great believer in "USING WHAT YOU WANT TO USE".

    MSIE is not "bad". It's "bad" if it doesn't do what you want it to do, but in that case it's still not "bad" it's just not "your thing". There is no need to argue about such childish things. Same thing goes for OS.

    Y'HERE THAT, INTERNET?!

    It looks a lot like the default Google Chrome browser.

    I agree.

    I often also get shot down for using Vista, too. >.>

    Edit: Well actually at the moment I'm using Windows 7....

    *sigh* that would have sounded so wonderful logical, if I wasn't one of those who have to make up for MSIE's shortcomings with hours and hours of pointless work. Yes, I can see that MSIE doesn't look quite as bad from a pure user perspective, but for those who have to work with it, it's a nightmare.

    You've got to hate, that Microsoft isn't planing to deliver the European Version of Windows 7 without Internet Explorer anymore :D
    I really liked the idea, but now they are only planing a dialog that lets you select different Browsers.

    I can imagine how that will look like...
    Internet Explorer preselected, others are not automatically installed, just the manufacturers website will be loaded.
    Basically everything stays the same except for one click.

    Actually, I see the ballot box as the better idea. What good is a system without a browser that you can use to install alternative browsers, but with a huge button that says "CLICK HERE TO INSTALL INTERNET EXPLORER".

    There are some decisions I don't agree with concerning the ballot box (for one I don't think it should appear inside a browser window with a design that suggests that it's some advertisement), but these are minor details.

    They're scrapping Windows E altogether now. There will still be Windows N which will have no Media Player or IE by default but E is gone and plain, original Windows 7 will be sold here with Windows 7 N hidden behind the counter and online as if it never existed.

    Yeah I saw that... So in other words Europe now pays more for no apparent reason. How lovely. Mind you I've managed to preorder it fairly cheap anyway with that offer they had going.

    Apparently
    500x375.aspx
    Is what they're trying to get it to look like. However the computer already comes with Internet Explorer to browse that page to begin with, so chances are a lot of people wont bother trying the others.
  • edited August 2009
    Not quite. Europeans will get a "ballot page" when they first open MSIE that will let them decide which browser they want to use.

    The EU has learned from Windows N :)

    Edit: posted at the same time.
    I'm not sure why I should have preferred being overcharged for Windows without MSIE to being overcharged with MSIE.
  • edited August 2009
    Yes, I said that. You missed my point completely. Since IE is already on it, chances are a lot of people wont bother trying the others.

    Edit: Oh sorry, you were talking to the guy above. XD

    Actually, I said that before ( http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showpost.php?p=180124&postcount=50 ), that's why I didn't bother repeating it. I was wondering about the "overcharged" quote, since Microsoft overcharges Europeans no matter what.
  • edited August 2009
    Yeah but it doesn't exactly say it in giant letters as such.

    Oh and by that I meant them not giving us an Upgrade edition, because they were afraid that upgrading an OS which already had Internet explorer to an OS without isn't recommended by Microsoft or something. BS really, as you say it was just their excuse to over charge us as usual. Don't we all love the $1 = 1 euro thing going on everywhere as well as the useless Dollar to Pound conversion rate.

    Not exactly giant, no. :)

    I've got absolutely nothing to add to your last paragraph.

    My browser of choice is Firefox. It only looks like Chrome (because Chrome is pretty).

    Also, here are my installed Firefox add-ons:

    I've decided to switch to Internet Explorer. Then I'll find a way to theme it up.
  • edited January 2013
    Laptop: Chrome
    Monster PC: Firefox
    General Use PC: Firefox

    I used to prefer FF, but Chrome would run way better on my Laptop(for some reason there were issues trying to run more than 5 tabs at once with IE or FF). I got used to it and I do like how "clean" it is.

    Kind of an odd resurrection I must add.

    I use version 6.0 of Safari.

    It's very wide, so if you don't have a 1080p monitor, it might be better to click the link instead of view it right in the thread here.

    The Bookmark Toolbar is my friend. Still rocking Firefox, as well. I dislike Chrome.

    Hi Hansschmucker,
    Your browser is cool and simply love the theme. May I know from where did you get it and is this theme available on internet also?
  • edited February 2013
    Nothing fancy. Just Firefox 19.0 under OS X.

    This is what the TTG forums look like in my mobile browser since yesterday:

    Looks like all thead elements have those smileys for some reason.
