    Arrow Browsers

    Everybody seems to be very interested in the browsers that they use. So, I thought that I would start a thread discussion about them. I've started off with a few browsers that work on Windows, Mac and Linux:



    I know some are almost equivelant, but their user interfase is different. Now, some system-specific browsers:



    And, of course, Lynx if you want a text-only browser. What's your opinion? You can rate the browsers 1-2-3-4-5. Se my next post for an example. Have fun!

    I use a mac, so here are my ratings:

    1. Safari
    2. iCab
    3. OmniWeb
    4. Camino
    5. Mozilla/Firefox
    6. Opera
    7. Netscape
    8. I await to try Shiira and Amaya


    iCab is so high because it seems to do everything that I want it to do. Camino is Gecko, so it works the same as FireFox. It's rated higher because the user interface is better. OmniWeb I haven't used a lot, but I've heard great things about it, so I'll rate it high. I just don't like Opera, so it's low. Netscape has an even worse user interface than FireFox, so it's the lowest.

    See http://darrel.knutson.com/mac/www/browsers.html for a list of about 100 Mac browsers and what OS versions support which browser versions.

    That was my main source for the macintosh browsers; I sifted through and found the ones with the best comments.

    Really? Opera is one of my least favorite browsers (unlike most other browsers, it does not support removed tags like <xmp> and <isindex> (not that I use them)). Although I suppose that version 9 is better than version 6 (I just upgraded yesterday).

    Why would you worry about tags like <XMP>?! That's like wondering if you can still use horses on the highway!

    It just seems like it should support them if it's called "The best internet experience".

    What a good idea! Much more eco-friendly!

    Tags that have been removed from HTML are not supposed to be supported by browsers any more. Those that are deprecated should still be supported though although it is reasonable for a browser to only support them if a transitional doctype is used.

    More like "are not required to be supported". And also, the browser that has "the best internet experience" should for courtesy. FireFox does, Safari does...
