Good Bye Chrome!

I’ve always liked Firefox. I have not been as fond of Firefox versions 4 and above, but started having problems with sites like Blogger and some others saying that my browser was outdated. So I installed Chrome, and kept Firefox version 3.xx.

Chrome sucked. It was slow, click the icon to open it and go get coffee, come back and it was still opening. No menu bar. So your only access to menu items was to right click. On images, on the Blogger post site, Chrome would deselect the image when you right clicked it, so you couldn’t cut and copy or paste an image in your post. You had to try and drag it I guess.

So yesterday I  uninstalled Chrome and installed Firefox 13.

As I type this, it occurs to me that it maybe was Google Chrome that made me move from Blogger to WordPress, Both being Google products, you’d think they would work well together, apparently not.

Anyway, now I have Firefox 3.xx and Firefox 13.xx on my machine and am happy for now.

I’ll tell you why I like Firefox before version 4: Before version 4, you could access the cache, and use the files. For example, a news or YouTube video, I would copy the video, then upload it to my post. That way, the video (or any object) is part of my post, not a link that would die if someone moves or deletes their object, my target. This is especially true for a news video.

Anyway, I feel like I’m going on and on too much about this so I’m going to close now. Can’t figure out why I had problems posting yesterday, today is back to smooth sailing.

Feels like Friday…

  1. when I first got crome I loved it..was fast and was easy for me to use..but now it won’t let me open any video’s on any website ..freezes up and then I get one of those faces and snap sorry..etc..I might get firefox 14..I’m afraid I’ll get it and hate it as before(I had it but don’t remember what number it was..)sigh*..pains in the asses.

  2. Well, it seems there are many changes going on. Glad to see you in your new digs and that you are happy. You may not remember me without the makeup but you do follow my blog. And I will always follow yours. You write about interesting stuff.

    I have absolutely no problem with Chrome. I would love to see what you all experience. Chrome flies for me…even with all the add ons that I have put on my system. Sorry to hear about your bad experiences but I am glad that you have found a better way.

    See? And for me, WordPress feels like I need a degree to navigate correctly. I guess I am just a simple guy and that is why I stay on Blogger.

    I will be writing much about my changes in today’s post so stay tuned…..

  3. Thanks for the review of Chrome. I’ll be sure and not try it.

    Still sticking with Firefox here, too. Though I never knew that about being able to use the cache in a post!
