After my recent post about Internet Explorer 9 breaking various people’s websites (and a fix for that), I wasn’t surprised to see that even major sites like Tescos Finance have been affected by it, and have had to post workaround advice to their customers.
If you’re still stuck in a rut using Internet Explorer because it came with your machine then maybe it’s time to swap to a new browser? Here are some options:
|Chrome||Fast but basic, and do you really want to put all your online eggs in the Google basket?||Chrome|
|Firefox||Open Source||Fast, extensible, secure, continually updated and lots of lovely add-ins that can speed up your day to day chores (they certainly do for us)||Firefox|
|Safari||Apple||Quirky but fast, but can you really depend on it?||Safari|
We’d recommend Firefox – being developed by the Open Source community is seems to suffer less security vulnerabilities, doesn’t break websites every time it is upgraded, is fast, and has lots of add-ins that can boost your productivity. They’ve also just released a shiny new version – version 5.
So if Internet Explorer 9 breaks your favourite websites maybe it’s time to change your browser?
