Good-bye Internet Explorer
With a not-so-tearful eye, I have ditched my Internet Explorer browser and have started using Chrome as my browser. Over the last year and a half, my laptops have been hit about a half a dozen times. I don't know whose fault it is.
Does the school's anti-virus software suck?
Is it my computers that suck?
Is it the browser, Internet Explorer, that sucks?
I can't get rid of the school's AV software since I need that to access the school's wireless system. I could buy yet another computer, possibly even a Mac. I hate Macs. The dipshits who use them have a cult-like devotion to them and they are as wacky as a Ron Paul supporter. Jesus, I don't want to be that guy. I'm desperate and may resort to buying a Mac, but only as a last resort.
For now, I got a Chrome browser. Setting it up was quick and painless. This boded well especially in comparison to almost any MS product. I think MS lets its engineers write the downloading instructions for their programs. Yes, I mean that as an insult. Anyone who has spoken to an engineer will understand the frustration of speaking to one. These are the types of people that use words "clearly" and "obviously" with ease and frequency. I've found that having to use the words "clearly" and "obviously" means that the idea being communicated is anything but clear or obvious.
So, here I am with a new browser. I hope this fends off the virus and malware attacks I've felt in the past. One thing I immediately noticed was the spell-check feature. For a chronic misspell-er such as me, this is an awesome feature!
