I used to really like Safari. For most things I still prefer it. But over time, it seems to have gotten slower. It also really lags behind on Facebook. For our farming, it’s really bad. So I tried Google Chrome. I tried it a year or so ago and it didn’t have a spell check then but it has one now so I wanted to give it a try. It’s by far faster than anything I could have imagined. It works so much better for the games and even just for surfing, it’s really fast. I like it a LOT. The only problem I have with it is the spell check dictionary is very limited and most of the time if I don’t know how to spell something, I’m WAY off but the Safari browser can always find the word I’m looking for. Chrome is also WordPress unfriendly. The spell check doesn’t always work while writing a post. It also doesn’t work in the tagging and categorizing. One more thing, it won’t copy and paste from Word to the post box using Chrome. I’ve lost so many posts over the last two years so I’ve come to write most of my posts in Word and then transfer it when I’m done.
I never really liked Firefox. It won’t play video’s on You Tube or on Facebook so I never really got comfy with that one. I guess there was nothing about it that I loved enough to give it a bunch of chances.
The other thing I don’t like about Safari is it won’t keep all your settings. I don’t like the fonts or the size of them and the whole look of it is so….sharp….for lack of a better word. It’s almost painful to my eyes so I go in and set it the way I like it but the next time you sign on, it’s back to the default. It only stays the way you set it if you don’t sign off. Safari is always way behind on things that people change. For example, Nikki’s picture is a little light blue thingy and not that cute pic of her in that white cap. But it’s right on Chrome and IE. So I just don’t get it.
So this is really my question. Do you all use different browsers for different things? If I happen to be online say on Chrome and decide to go to the blog and do some work, I sometimes forget that the posting is as hard as it is. I’ll be in the middle of something and I’ll need help with spelling or grammar and cross over to Word and nothing will transfer. Oy!!!!
So, what do you do? What do you use and do you have a reason?
