What Your Web-Browser Says About You – part 1

Posted by: Rea Maor In: Internet and SEO - Friday, June 15th, 2007

Internet Explorer 6 and below Your son-in-law set up your computer for you on a Thanksgiving weekend, and you haven’t had the nerve to try to change anything. The computer is so virus-infested, if it ever does what you tell it to any more, it’s a miracle.

Internet Explorer 7 You’re content to shuffle along with the herd. They usually know the best thing to do, that’s why they’re a herd. You’re relieved that transparent PNGs finally don’t have a blue box around them, and these tab thingies are just great, but you’re still troubled by this rumor that browsers can have extensions and themes. Blasphemy!

Firefox You’re actually one step ahead of the curve, and are smugly proud of yourself. As long as your PCs memory chips don’t actually catch fire and you don’t run the rest of your operating system at the same time as Firefox, you’ll do fine. Since Firefox has enough bloat to actually be the rest of your operating system, that’s a minor point.

Ice Weasel Congratulations; you have taken sides in one of the pettiest web flame-wars ever. You might also spend a due amount of time correcting people on the difference between Internet and World Wide Web, or the difference between Linux and GNU/Linux or the difference between Mac OS and OS X. You would not pass up the opportunity to point out a grammatical error, even if you were running away from a bomb.

Flock You’ll download anything, won’t you? To you, the web was never anything but social. You are so driven to be on the cutting edge, that most of us never hear from you, because by the time some place is two days old it’s no longer cool enough to hang out in.

Opera You’re actually one of the few who are elite without being so insufferable about pointing it out to people. You actually like to look at web pages that were rendered correctly instead of looking like they’ve been through the blender. You don’t care about frills and features. It’s a web browser, not an operating system, dammit!

Safari Your son-in-law set up your iMac for you on a Thanksgiving weekend, and you haven’t had the nerve to try to change anything. Besides, it’s so shiny, it works great, and you never have problems. You do spend a bit much time complaining about the lack of media files in Quicktime format, however.

    Right on the mark, brother. Firefox rocked until it acquired the mass of a blue whale, Safari rocked when it started to work, Opera is way too elitist for the masses who equate Java with Javascript, etc.

    Very funny… erm am I the only techie in the world that likes ie7? OK, OK I’ll get my coat!

    Thank you for those kind words :), well… my mother is using IE7 and she find it easier, its mainly depends on what you got used to… most of the people wont bother try any alternative and never know what they’re missing

  10. John Says:

    True, but I’ve tried Netscape (most versions 1 to 6), I’ve used Opera, I use Firefox on another computer, but I heretic that I am, I still prefer ie7.

    sadly, we were forced to the iceweasel name, it wasn’t a choice, blame mozilla for this, not debian. I hate that name as much as anyone, probably more, but it’s the name we have to deal with if you run Debian systems, it’s not really choice, unless you install from tarballs, which I’m sure you’d agree is even geekier.

    In a perfect world, mozilla corporation would have continued to allow Debian to change some small parts of Firefox while still calling it Firefox (the option that Everyone from Debian wanted), but Mozilla, with their air-head CEO, have chosen to go the corporate nonsense route, with ensuing excuses. And in a slightly more perfect world, Debian would not have chosen such a ridiculously stupid name as ‘iceweasel’ when forced to rename it for trademark purposes….
