Hi CarKnee,


I've been visiting your forums for a long time and I see that you never updated the forum software.
I use Google Chrome and the new version simply makes your forums unusable, because the extremly old software you use now.


There are many updates released for Community Forums, I know they are expensive. Why don't you switch to vBulletin? I can donate a license to you, I have 2 that I don't use. Now, I cannot even login... forget about regular browser usability like rich editor or thread subscriptions.


Regards,


Floren

My machines with IE 7 and the latest Mozilla all surf the forum just fine. I couln't log in the other day (first time that's happened in years), so I cleared my rswarrrior.com cookies and then all was fine.

Honestly, IE and Firefox eat memory like an elephant. Not to mention that Chrome is lighter and 100times faster...

I have not been able to get on the forum for several months. I tried to do a password recovery several times and it will not send me an email. I was tundra556. I gave up and made a new account. I cannot navigate the site very well,must not be compatible with my mobile service like other forums.

Chrome and IE take the password login fine...Firefox seems to be the application at fault at my end. When I enter my info and try to log in, I can't.


I like your comparison too, Teck!!

Only chrome I have is on the bike..I used to run opera mini, that doesn't work very well at all anymore because they have issues with the BB Bold..I can login and navigate but its a PITA.. I still haven't got an email from here going on week two..I don't know, I'm just a dumb truck driver...its a shame technology can't keep up with me..I would like to know if its just me or if the mods and admin are having the same problem and if they are, has it been addressed..if its not going to be addressed I will never be able to keep up with threads without email updates, and like I said in the other thread, I don't know what this BB is gonna do when they all decide to dump at once?? If I get into the threads I replied to and disable the email updates will I still get the thread updates to that point? Or will it cancel them all? If its a matter of money for upgrades then speak up, I would be more than happy to help. I could read updates via email, now I have to navigate thru the site to see if anyone has replied to my posts..I can't login with the BB web browser, so I have to use an old version of opera which in general is junk..any easier way to navigate mobile?

Its not just Chrome 6.0. Even Google Chrome 5.0xx did not play well with the post editing software here. I've been keeping two icons on my desktop for a long time now: one IE8 and one for Google Chrome that I use for everything I can. It is lighter/faster. +1 I had to go away from Firefox since many various websites I visit seem to become limited in unexpected ways.

You can keep all browsers in your computer. Personally I used to use Firefox and I ditch it for Chrome, when I saw how fast it is comared to Firefox.
IE is installed by default, soI keep it there anyways.

LOL...


I use IE8, and like it!



If I ever think its getting slow (which I dont) I just upgrade my PC
.


Com on guys, you really need and extra .005 second boost?



I run a quad core, Win7 64 bit and 8 gigs of ram. (nothing much now a days) and IE8 takes maybe 1 second to load and maybe 1 to 3 more seconds to log the user by cookieinto this page!


You guys need to check your boxes for bloatware, I keep my system clean and stable and IE8 has never given me a single problem in my system.

I read this in January and make me laugh when actual governments told you NOT to use IE. I really don't trust politicians, but for once they were actually right... I stopped using this browser long time ago. Just google it to find out why you should stay away from IE.

Read the article... The title is Should you stop using Internet Explorer?and their final answer was NO.


They are talking about a flaw using an UNPATCHED version of IE6!. UNPATHCED! and how they(govt.) assume this might extend to the later versions.


From your article link said:
This week Microsoft began urging businesses and consumers to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8, explaining that the security benefits are far greater than that of Internet Explorer 6. However, for corporations and web designers there’s a continued reminder that for many years Microsoft ignored emerging and defined web standards in Internet Explorer, especially in version 6.

From your article link said:
Currently the flaw exists in Internet Explorer versions 6, 7 and 8 but exploit code is only available for Internet Explorer 6. The reason IE 7 and 8 are both unaffected for now is due to the increased security of the software. Internet Explorer 7 introduced a phishing filter, protected mode to run the browser in a sandbox at low level security rights (vista only) and improved management of ActiveX controls. Microsoft improved security in IE8 by running the browser frame and tabs in separate processes and per-site ActiveX controls. Both IE 7 and 8 also include support for Data Execution Prevention (DEP) that prevents buffer overflow attacks.

From your article link said:
So do these attacks mean you should stop using Internet Explorer? Simply put, no.

LOL.. if you are running and UNPATCHED version of Internet Explorer 6at this time, you are a MORON! (not intended as an insult, unless you are running a version of IE6 and do not patch).I understand the the enterprise world might still be using IE6, but thats due to their own internal needs/lack of software upgrades due to costs, in no way does this imply that single home users out there would in any way benefit from using IE6. Windows 7 and IE8 combination is one of the MOST secure combinations in the MS world, way more secure than Win 7 and Firefox and chrome offers a similar sandbox experience but really not as separate from the kernel as IE8.


Microsoft said:
http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/security-threats/2010/01/18/french-german-governments-warn-against-ie-39994504/


"Customers using Internet Explorer 8 are not affected by currently known attacks and exploits due to the improved security protections in IE8," Microsoft said in a statement. "To help protect our customers, we recommend that all customers immediately upgrade to Internet Explorer 8."

You have to remember there are a LOT of Microsoft haters out there and misinformation and pokes at it will continue forever.


If you are running IE8 and experience slow performance, this is usually due to addons/controls installed in your browser due to sloppy user maintenance/browser navigation, go to your "manage addons" and disable all and just keep stuff like Flash,iSpell (thats all I keep for now).


If you install every addons a web suggests like (facebook apps/web printing/file uploads/blah blah blah) your browser will have to load all of those making your web experience slow.


If you want to set your IE8 to as close to factory defaults and start over clean (addons/controls) go to your top menu and select "Tools/Internet Options/Advanced tab/RESET" ... clear all and start browsing again.


TO CONCLUDE:


The French Govt. saying to you should stop using IE7 and IE8 because of an exploit in a IE6 (unpatched) flawis like me stating that you should not buy any Ford car due to the Ford Pinto's flaw when hit from behind!


Yes! I'm comparing IE6 to a Ford Pinto!
and so should you!

I believe from my past experience, is that your safari had problems loggin into this site because it has COOKIES DISABLED from its original state.


You must ENABLE cookies on safari and you shuld be fine after this.


Later versions of SAFARI might already have cookies enabled from its default state but im speculating at this point.
