    Default Konqueror

    Hi

    My favourite webbrowser is Konqueror which comes with the KDE desktop environment for GNU/Linux and other *nix-like operating systems.

    When I need to use another operating system and/or some websites that don't render correctly with Konqueror, I also use Mozilla and Firefox.

    So I discovered a nasty bug in Firefox. It concerns using a check-box in a form. According to the write-up a NAME/VALUE pair is only passed to the script if the box is checked. Internet Explorer works. However, Firefox doesn't. It passes the combo regardless. I've been using Firefox more often and I do like it inspite, but the off-line capability offered by IE to access your web pages is very useful. Sure IE's box model or whatever may be whacky, but what difference does it make if they dominate the market? Sadly we don't have creative freedom. I'm not saying give in. I'm saying that is something you don't use unless you're prepared for all sorts of inconsistencies between browsers. Battling the DOM and CSS for 5 different browsers including Konqueror nearly drove me insane :cry:

    I have been playing with the lastest version of Firefox and like it. The only drawback is it does not have all my cookies for the forums and such I visit so I still tend to revert to IE. It imported my bookmarks but couldn't find a way to import the cookies. Guess I could do a manual copy. I am trying to use if for browseing new sites to have the extra security and fall back to IE for the sites I always visit.

    I still code pages quite a bit based on IE features simply because it seems to be what most users out there have. I still have one site that uses a menu that won't work for FireFox so have a notice and linke to a sitemap page for those who cant access the regular menu. I should have never used the menu code but now the owner of the site is in love with it and I have to some how change thier mind. Sometimes I just give in to demand.

    Well, even though I chose Firefox, I actually use another mozilla branch (it's actually the main branch, firefox is a sub-branch) called Minefield that's SSE2 optimized (better performance mainly). Otherwise, it's identical to firefox. I do development work and have about 40-50 extensions at any one time. Generally have 2 or 3 windows with upto 40 or so tabs. Took me a little while to get it to stop crashing! LOL

    As a developer, I also use (or are forced to use) IE (7 & 8 are OK, and there are some decent dev plugins now. 5 or 6 are a royal pain! but people still use them, so I have to), Opera, Chrome, Safari. I also have a few others just for a quick test as necessary, such as text-based (Lynx of course) and specialist browsers for blind people.

    Being a web developer is so much fun these days! I love standards... there are SO many of them! *sigh*

    Cheers!
    Paul.
