Best Internet Browsers For (PoC) — 27 Comments

  1. Windows 8 in the office 🙁 It has a nervous breakdown when I try to visit. This may be deliberate to restrict visits to “leisure” websites.

  2. i have found google chrome is better as u can stretch those aps on left and right and makes it much better to read::)

  3. i just gone back to google chrome was using firefox dont use internet explorer at all. Im using windows 8.1 which id rather was windows 7. Get annoyed with how it automatically zooms 🙁

  4. The addition of various popups at the side and bottom crashes my browser (IE on Windows 7) at lunchtime from work. Alas no choice of browser.

      • There’s the Facebook/tweet/share that pops up at the left-hand side, the “recommended for you” at the bottom right. Move cursor too far right and there’s a “recent comments” pops up (this is on a transparent background which means the listing can’t be read). I’m guessing these are “mouseover” coded areas, but I find it too cluttered and the browser just freezes 🙁

      • At the base of the site there are four images with links to other pages and on the right there is a small arrow which when clicked opens up to reveal more links to more pages. If you don’t see it, it must be down to your browser, Dee.

  5. No idea what my internet explorer number is but it’s working fine at present, I can see exactly what you say we should and our motto is ‘If it aint broke, don’t fix it’
    I don’t know what caused my problems on PoC a while back when it wouldn’t let me comment, but it went right and I have google chrome as a back up now if needed, so leaving well alone lol

    • Good, Ruth I am pleased. You have a decent computer with reasonably modern software but some people have 5 year old computers with old Internet browsers usually Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 9 and older.

      I visit a library that has old computers to check out how the site renders and there are also websites where you can simulate rendering a website in old versions of Internet Explorer. A run-off
