Message 944227 - Posted: 31 Oct 2009, 17:38:27 UTC - in response to Message 944155.

New totals so far...
18 use Mozilla Firefox
5 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Konqueror

Looks like the overwhelming majority of SETI@home participants are Firefox users, I'm not suprised, as most people who tweak things don't use the "stock" option. :).

NOTE:For all Firefox Stumbleupon users with the SU plugin, 3.7a1pre now works with SU.

Okay I reported Camino and Netscape and they aren't in the table. Low %'s true, but they are fired up every day to look at different webmail accounts that almost never get an e-mail.

Hmm. Getting confusing now. I'll go over all the posts again and redo the table. It's very contentious when someone says "I use xxxx... but I also might use xxxx and sometimes xxxx." LOL. I'll repost in about 5 minutes.

OK. I went back over the results. I didn't include work related browsers, "I hardly ever use them browsers", or "But I also have xxxx & xxxx browsers"

20 use Mozilla Firefox
9 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Netscape
1 uses Camino

Any more results? I've gotta' apply the nightly build now for 3.7 now...

3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome

But if anyone else wants to share their browser choice out there, you're more than welcome!

Yeah........us old wienies like the Seamonkey........

Reason.....It's like the old Netscape 7 series, with the email built in.
I just about died when NS quit having the email bundled when they went to 8.
And then they quit updating altogether.

And in the last couple of weeks, Seamonkey totally updated again, with new code akin to Firefox.
Way cool. All the pages work the way they should again.
Meeeeeeeeow.

I just luv it when somebody looks after the old kittyman.

I forget which one of you folks here turned me on to it when NS7 got so ragged that it didn't work with most of the web anymore, but I still thank you.

I always use Firefox 3.5.x except for web sites that require IE. That's pretty much only Windows Update these days though, so... yeah! :-) But I usually use Autopatcher for Windows Updates anyway since I have several machines.

I am slowly moving away from Windows though as my day-to-day OS as well too so, soon, I may not even be able to run IE. :-)

22 use Mozilla Firefox
9 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Netscape
1 uses Camino
1 uses Seamonkey

Overwhelmingly, I declare the choice browser of SETI@home to be Firefox!

Apache collects that stat, so if we asked Matt very nice, perhaps he'd let us know.

SwiftWeasel is listed as a fork-browser of Mozilla Firefox, plus it is also based on the source code of FF. So I added that vote as Firefox.

@Gary, good idea, I'll see what I can do on that matter!

At home, FF.

At work (where I am now), IE7. (Shhh, don't tell the boss I'm surfing instead of serving!)


We won't have to tell because the Proxy server log will in excruciating detail :-) Every year, 2-3 people are fired at my wife's firm for this transgression :-O

PS - I use IE7 ...

That's ok, I just remembered what the Governator of California wrote to the state legislature(It was rather nasty and It was only two words spread out over 7 sentences with the two words(4+3) letters as the start of each sentence(common expletive starting on the 6th alphabetical character), But It was for shock value I think) and then I looked at Your list and there was the phrase that I found.
