What are the plusses to using Safari versus Firefox?

I like Firefox because I can "carry" my bookmarks with me anywhere I go--as in from computer to computer.

The newest version of Firefox is driving me crazy. It keeps crashing. :rolleyes:

Well I used to prefer Firefox because Safari would crash on me but I upgraded my system and now Safari seems to work better.

If you're using a PC, use Firefox. If you're using a Mac, use Safari. They are almost essentially the same browser, just made by different companies.

I've got a PC, and IE was constantly crashing, so I switched to Firefox and had a lot of the same problems. Then I tried Safari, and although it has OTHER problems--like not being supported by some sites, and some commands not working as they should, among other things--the crashing/freezing problem quit. So I've stuck with it, and suffered through the other problems!

Ubuntu, and I'm using the older version of Firefox. The newer version works fine, but I like the feel of the older version.

If you're looking for a new browser to try -- give Opera a shot.

I never have a choice in updating it. It updates itself, dangit!

My pet peeves for the day:

1. I was woken by a weed whacker at 7am--it sounded like it was outside my bedroom window.

2. The neighbor's dog (a yippy one) is outside and WON'T SHUT UP! I swear, this thing drives me crazy!

Just took the first step to quit smoking yesterday. I bought some organic tobacco with no additives and they're roll your own. I figure this way I'll have to work for a cigarette and eventually I'll get tired of it.

Ugh, I hate that. It's like an anvil chorus around here... On any given day, you can hear the musical stylings of:

- my dog, a dachshund

- the Weimaraner next door

- the two border terriers on the other side next door

- some kind of yippy, squeaky little squirt (like the one you're dealing with) at the end of the cul-de-sac that I've never actually seen

- some other dog, who's the loudest of them all...I don't even know where it lives or what it looks like, but it will not shut up!!

Usually all hell breaks loose whenever the UPS truck goes down the street...I don't know what it is, but all the dogs are convinced that the UPS man is evil. The mailman? No problem. But UPS must die, apparently.

:thumbsup: Good decision! Wishing you lots of luck. You will feel soooo much better when you've given them up :D

:lol: I can relate to that - sounds like where I live. I guess they're all mad the UPS man doesn't bring them presents? <_<

That's the funny part - the guy always brings them a dog treat! This neighborhood doesn't take bribes, I guess, because I think he could show up with a steak dinner and they'd still all bark! :slapface: Nutty dogs.

Maybe they're barking with excitement knowing the sound of the truck that brings them treats!

Lol, yep, they sure are!

That's a possibility, for the rest of the neighborhood. My dog is definitely a snarling, slobbering, back-hair-raised attack weenie when the UPS man comes to the door, though. This dog will not be bought, lol.

Are you talking about me? :hysterical: Sorry, I couldn't resist - it's like you were setting us up for that one! ;)

Pretty sure it's me this time. A simple contradictory opinion can take you down the rabbit hole with Honey. Hell, agreeing with her is like playing dodgeball! Witness her responses in Revolution. I said some of my friends dropped high school for union jobs as forklift drivers. She replied suggesting I'm screwed if I have a heart attack. Um, okay. My ill-educated union friends have some of the best healthcare policies of anyone I know. But it goes right over her head. I'm annoying her by trying to have a logical conversation and, god forbid, sharing a few facts about people I actually know. I guess that makes me self-absorbed and clueless while she condescends from her pedestal.

Moi? I'd take a bullet for you! Of course that wouldn't be a selfless act as it would make me a good and giving person willing to sacrifice myself for a brother, and subsequently that would be glorifying myself. ;)

Oh, who am I kidding? I'd take a bullet for you too if I could get a bit of glory too!

Man, are you in trouble again? ;) Gotta watch out for those logical conversations!

And I just couldn't resist the irony of asking if it was me, since if anyone asked that question, they'd immediately show themselves to be just as self-absorbed as EL implied, thinking it was all about them. Thought I'd do the honors. :)

Self-absorbed minds think alike! :beer:
