V. Poor!

Even more poor that Firefox, which still doesn't like Real Player and which still can't properly place Youtube vidoes on Blog posts.

Do none of them do any bloody work on their browsers?

Err Firefox works fine for me. Give me an example link.

Thats News @ 1541: Real Player? People still use that?

Dizzy: If we go by the Draper school of thought you should be getting a drunk IM/Email/Twitter/Phone call from some scruffy geezer at Google who will explain to you that you clearly don't understand the interweb and that it only does that 'cos its a new browser. They'll then form an obsession, follow all your follwers on Twitter and just generally be dick heads.

I downloaded the latest version of Google Earth the other day - I also use Chrome as my standard browser.

If in the Earth app I clicked onto Google maps button, it launched Internet Explorer.... which I hate.

More importantly, Stumble doesn't work in Chrome either.

The new Google Earth seems very flaky indeed: it failed to symlink a library, complained that it had already created its cache files, and gave an impenetrable error message (something about swizzling TEX) that turned out to mean "update WINE".

What are you doing using windows?

I have more than one machine and work insist on me using Exchange and Outlook. So I have a windows laptop but two linux desktops.

Hi, Dizzy. Firefox works fine for me, in the main. It is just that they haven't been able to implement Real Player in the last two updates of Firefox.

It's a pity because I love Firefox. I find the spell check facility very helpful, and there are some other great ad-ons that Microsoft should steal. Err... I mean implement, of course!
