Hey, I said next to nothing.
And what the heck do I give a damn about my browser speed? I get a 6 meg connection off our provider, assuming its quiet and around 3-4 at peak, and I didnt notice any VISIBLE speed difference.
Sure, there will be 5kB/s here and there, but I have never noticed it, and so long as I dont notice, I dont care.
And as for security, you know how to make a secure browser? Turn off everything bar the most basic read-only script and disable every add on. And cookies etc.
Opera was annoying. Every damn flash object had to be clicked before it was loaded. EVERYTHING! Il presume that feature can be turned off, but the point is, it should never interfere in that way in the first place.
Security is something that needs to stay out the way. IE8 has base security such as preventing unsigned controls and automatic downloads. Thas all I need. AVG does the rest without getting in my way. Just a simple window telling me X virus was stopped.
You can like whichever browser you like, il not complain, although I will suggest the IE8 and AVG 8.5 combo if asked. And before you start on money, AVG's internet suite is part of the free version. I pay for the rootkit finder because ive had major issues with them before.
As for reviews, I test the browsers myself thanks. I dont need someone sat there with a stopwatch to write a review of internet browser.
Next time, think of real factors. Numbers are not everything. I wouldnt be surprised if you LIKE that virus Microsoft made me install. What was it...Oh yeah, that over-safe, too-user-friendly OS : Vista Home Premium.
Edited, for your personal taste.
Although the swearfilter had already done that for you.
Of course, if you were offended, you should have gone to a mod. Ellie and Eric are on fairly often, and always willing to help.
Although I doubt you actually care, and my argument was merely better than yours. Hence : Ignorance is bliss.
tl;dr? Means what?
