The ultimate web browser

This new product is just breathtakingly good.
The more you know about browsers, the better it seems.
LSemmens - 16-3-2008 at 11:33
So, is it Firefox, or a M$ facsimile otherwise called Internet Explorer?
Quaver - 16-3-2008 at 11:50
That's way higher than my PC

Yet another world beating product from M$!
That Bill Gates is a ruddy genius, I don't know how he manages to do it.
I won't be long now before he rules the world.

I note that it declares the following:
All Symantec Products
GFI MailSecurity for Microsoft Exchange/SMTP
GFI DownloadSecurity for Microsoft ISA Server
Norman Virus Control (NVC)
Panda Titanium Antivirus
Trend Micro PC-cillin
to be malicious software.

I'll have to update to 'Firefox'
I just have standard I.E and it's slow

giron - 16-3-2008 at 20:38
I wouldn't bother, if I were you!
I've heard that Bill Gates has just introduced a new global law that makes it illegal to use any software, other than his!
giron - 16-3-2008 at 20:42
That's likely to upset football fans!
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 20:57
Hasn't he been sued for trying to control everything?
giron - 16-3-2008 at 21:01
Yes, but he appealed to the international courts and had the ruling reversed, claiming that it was an infringement of his human rights to prevent him
from dominating the entire world.
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:10
Damn the man who makes this forum what it is today
Without him...what would you do??
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:11
Love your Avatar giron 10 out of 10
Was it Dreamweaver who picked it for you?
giron - 16-3-2008 at 21:14
I'd be attempting to get on line using a ZX Spectrum!
On a more serious note, Bill Gates has played a very large part in making the PC the success it is today.
SRD - 16-3-2008 at 21:14
He pinched it.
giron - 16-3-2008 at 21:17
No, she didn't pick it for me, but I did nick it from her site.
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:18
How do you know?
Maybe it was some <secret transaction>
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:22
There's some great Avatars there. It's almost like a money tree. Very hard to keep ones (Right-Click) then (Copy)

You have a serious side
He certainly has and I am in debted to him we all are

He admitted it to me after I threatened to take him down to the pub and buy him a
giron - 16-3-2008 at 21:33
So have I, along with various other home computers of the same era.
In relative terms, the Spectrum, probably, cost more than a modern day basic PC.
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:35
Never tried a 'babycham'
TooCute4Words - 16-3-2008 at 21:36
£149.99 or £129.99 I think he said?
giron - 16-3-2008 at 21:48
Something like that, but that was in the early 80's, how much would that be in today's terms?
dr john - 16-3-2008 at 22:21
Look at what you earned back then, look at the equivalent job's salary, and multiple the price by the same percentage increase.
Based on what I earned then (£4000 - £5000) and the same job today at the same grade (£20,000), a ZX spectrum (yes, I had one too) was the equivalent
of about £800 - £1000 in today's money.
giron - 16-3-2008 at 22:30
Today, it's possible to get a complete PC system for just under £300.
Fair enough, the specification will be fairly modest, but still usable, for most of us.
Wilbur - 17-3-2008 at 06:44
Just wondering why my post was totally censored/snipped of a copy/paste from that site, when everyone has already probably read it for
themselves...............is this because whoever censored it doesn't want some poor soul to be offended twice.........once there, and once here ?
A bit heavy handed methinks............as it was hardly anything to get all upset about, you'd see worse in the daily newspapers or on

Favouritism again mmC, giron can get away with his Curry's, for which he has already admitted getting paid.
marymary100 - 17-3-2008 at 16:34
Giron's a favourite?
Quaver - 17-3-2008 at 16:49
Wilbur - 17-3-2008 at 17:52
So which rule did I break ?
Surely not the copywright bit ?
That didn't get deleted.
I hardly see where that applies to the text I posted.....which everyone had already seen on the original site.
Rather Nannyish................I forgot that the censorship here is so tight
giron - 17-3-2008 at 21:24
That's a very unfair remark to make, Simon.
Fair enough, I did mention Curry's, but you've also mentioned Curry's!
How much are you getting paid for each time that you mention Curry's?
More to the point can you get a better deal by advertising Tiscali broadband?
giron - 17-3-2008 at 21:28
A blatant case of advertising, if ever I saw one!
Ten bob from each of the companies you've mentioned, sounds like a nice little earner, to me.
marymary100 - 17-3-2008 at 22:09
They like being called malicious software then?
marymary100 - 17-3-2008 at 22:10
Best to remember in future then.
giron - 17-3-2008 at 22:11
Any publicity, is good publicity,
SRD - 18-3-2008 at 08:51
Here I am.
Wilbur - 18-3-2008 at 17:54
Nope, sorry.........if the censorship here is set to the level of a 5 year old, and posting a bit of text with the word 'breast' in it is enough to
get your panties in a tizz, then it is a bit too much for me.
I seem to remember good old Karl posting some pretty risque jokes, and he didn't get censored, all he got was some
smilies in reply.
Since there seems to be about half a dozen active posters here in this nice fluffy knitting circle, then it is time I upped sticks and stayed in
forums where a mild word like 'breast' doesn't get a post deleted by heavy handed moderating.
I know, I know........... if I don't like it here, or the rules, I can leave at any time, which is what I shall do.
So, you can delete me from your shrinking list of members.
Things have changed here since the good old days when Karl first started up this site.
Dreamweaver - 18-3-2008 at 21:01
Censorship is far from tight here Wilbur, but everything has its place.
Your right here, though, but he never made jokes in any PC related forum as far as I am aware. The PC section was just that.
Irrespective of how many people post there is a larger audience watching, I am sorry if you find us "fluffy", but I don't need you to try broaden
my spectrum so to speak.
Indeed they have, how can I win here? You say we are too strict yet others seem to think I am too lax compared to how Karl ran the forums and were
Solomon I am not.
Just for information though, I am not about to get into a debate about how the forum is moderated, this IS one of Karl's rules I
have kept on board.
Wilbur - 18-3-2008 at 21:13
Ok, last post.
Since the topic was about a so called new browser, it was in PC Help......fine.
People looked at the site, and another poster pasted a part of it, which wasn't deleted, so I can't have fallen foul of the copyright issue.
I did the same, which was an amusing part of the so called options of the browser, and that got deleted, I assume because one of the words was
'breast'.........dear oh dear, how inflamatory is that !!
Yep agree, no point in debating it as you have made your judement.
But to me, such heavy handed moderation of such a minor issue is just downright 'nannyish' and really kills any enthusiasm to post here
anymore..........so I hereby hand in my resignation as I no longer wish to be part of the knitting circle.
giron - 18-3-2008 at 21:25
As the so called new browser is just an amusing hoax, perhaps, dr john deserves a jolly good birching, for posting the story, in the
TooCute4Words - 18-3-2008 at 22:01
Many forums have a large list of members, but only ten or so hang around frequently and support the forum continually. Due to them, a forum stays
afloat - rather than falling by the wayside.
I chose to join and continue to stay here (regardless of the odd problem )
I think if you like the members here (or at least) one or two or three, then you must stick around. Good friendships or even acquaintanceships are
worth popping back on here.
I can't really add anymore....
Or I may put my foot in it again
dr john - 18-3-2008 at 23:30
A HOAX browser?!
You mean it's not real!!!
giron - 18-3-2008 at 23:35
You know very well it's not real!
I suspect that you only mentioned it, in order to boost your post count.
SRD - 19-3-2008 at 08:35
I for one do not consider dr john capable of such gironesque behaviour.
dr john - 19-3-2008 at 11:03
At this moment in time it says I've been a member since 2002 and have 725 posts.
2C4W has been a member since January and has 779
and little you, a member since 2005, has 8755 posts.
So, who's boasting their post count, eh?
Watch out, he's chasing your total!
1000 posts here I come...
Quality, not quantity,
LSemmens - 19-3-2008 at 12:47
Sorry, Wilbur, I can't knit! Does that mean I have to leave here! Bugga, and I was just getting comfortable!
marymary100 - 19-3-2008 at 17:28
knit 1 ......purl 1....... cast off
TooCute4Words - 19-3-2008 at 22:36
I can't believe I've done 779 posts already? Gosh, I ain't been here that long either.
Some might say that is very good and thankyou for being here and supporting a forum which some choose not to
and some would say (words to the contrary)
LSemmens - 20-3-2008 at 09:14
You are wrong QT, it's 810 posts!
TooCute4Words - 20-3-2008 at 21:18
I lost count
giron - 20-3-2008 at 22:54
Yes, well done for doing that, TC4W.
I presume that you've not had an invitation to join the ' Scottish site '?
Don't worry, if you haven't, it's very exclusive, a bit like the ruddy Freemasons!
SRD - 20-3-2008 at 23:00
Scottish site????? I know lookabootye is a little cliqueish,
but surely only because there are very few people who actually live in Clackmannanshire.
edit: And I noticed you haven't signed in today, your absence has been reported.
Dreamweaver - 20-3-2008 at 23:01
As a member you would know that? * shakes hand with finger pressed firmly into palm" or whatever the "free" masons do..... But what does this have to do with PC chat??
SRD - 20-3-2008 at 23:02
Well I'm using a PC and I'm chatting, isn't that good enough for you?
