This is a discussion on Ie 7 ... within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I'm kinda surprised about the results of this poll! In this statictical thing ( http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp ), is shows that about ...

    I'm kinda surprised about the results of this poll!

    In this statictical thing ( http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp ), is shows that about 60% are mad for the IE 6, and about 25 are mad for the FF. 1.4 are crazy about the Winfery show. Hmmm, shows how atypical real programmers are eh?

    You're comparing a poll from a programming board to a poll of what seems to be the average internet user. I'm sure if you look at their statistics on OS, they have a much different XP to Linux ratio than you'd poll on this board and if you ask me, their most common resolution seems a bit small for this board to me, too.

    "First get your facts; then you can distort them at your leisure."
    Mark Twain

    Good quote! I also like this one:

    "Then there was the man who drowned crossing a stream with an average depth of six inches."
    W. I. E. Gates

    So, they're saying these are the facts, but then they say that they don't matter ... ah well. Still though, out of 18 people, 11 (12 really), peole use FF. Interesting. Very interesting.

    The way they do statistics these days, I say you go ahead and plant those results as the average internet user. You'll be as wrong as everyone else, which can only mean you are right.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Well, when I boot into Mac OS X, I use Safari, because it's faster than Firefox. When I boot Gentoo, I use Firefox, because it's faster than booting into Mac OS X.

    (I voted Firefox, even though Safari is based on Netscape.)

    IE7 *still* doesn't pass the acid test. At least it displays web pages more properly than its broken predecessors.

    Opera for the win.

    Not sure if anyone pointed it out but konqueror isn't listed.
