your schools computers let you download programs? we can't download programs, or much of anything. It doesn't even let us open most files from online unless from an approved storage site. And we have a very old version of explorer... not even tabs :shock: . I have tried to put firefox on, but I always get blocked, but maybe I can try through a flash drive.
IE6? Oh dear... Basically all of my schools' security measures (besides website blocking) can be bypassed with command prompt.

I am in a Delaware Apple store and I am bored.

EDIT: Tempted to upload Chrome to these things.
1. Download, not upload.
>.< Sorry, that's what I meant. My excuse is that Macs are hard to work with.
2. Why not install Windows or Linux? The results would be much more interesting.
Well, it's hard to do that without anyone noticing in a busy, crowded Apple store... I wound up just setting the Google Chrome page as the home screen and leaving.

:P I downloaded Chrome onto school computers. No one really cares, and it speeds them up, if anything.

I like what you can do with Firefox. I'm much more comfortable with it.

portableapps.com has a Google Chrome available to download so we all downloaded it and used it instead of IE :P

I prefer Chrome. Much more intuitive, I think, and a lot more aesthetically pleasing (yay for fancy themes). It's fast, too.

I actually think Firefox- especially newer versions- are more aesthetically pleasing. Maybe not so much without add-ons, but you ought to see the set up I have here.

While I do use chrome, it drives me up a wall sometimes. Sometimes I think I'm just to lazy to switch to firefox. One thing I will say is I really like how chrome's tabs "slide" around on the tab bar rather than you picking something up when you want to rearrange your tabs.

No. Gossamer is the best web browser. It does things that no other browser has ever done, or ever will do.

It only counts posts in "useful" forums...
