Man, another day of non-racing on the Hauraki Gulf, race 4 was postponed *again*. I'm having America's Cup withdrawals!
Well, I did it. I switched, perhaps permanently, to Mozilla for my daily browsing. Reasons:
It kills pop-up windows. This will save five minutes of whack-a-mole per day.
It allows me to choose whether to accept cookies on a site-by-site basis.
It supports tabbed browsing - Ctrl-click follows a link in a new tab.
I'll tell you how I like it - stay tuned.
[Later: already I'm wondering about this. Despite published reports to the contrary, Mozilla appears slower than IE, and - significantly for me and my style of browsing - it cannot deal with many clicks in parallel. I have a tendency to read through a page, Ctrl-clicking every link of possible interest, and then I go back and see what I've dredged up. Seems like at around eight or so concurrent loads, Mozilla balks. More later...]
