    Which browser do you use?

    I'm considering setting up an online forum and I'm guessing that the general audience will mainly be people at work (like here) and I'm trying to decide how far back I need to support in terms of browsers.

    Usually work browsers lag behind the browsers used at home, but I don't know just how far behind, since supporting older versions of IE becomes exponentially more expensive the further you go back, I'd like to make a guestimate just how widespread old crappy browsers are.

    So if anyone's interested in helping out, please add to the poll above.

    Cheers

    Kyle

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    Our company (and it's a pretty big one) recently upgraded us to Windows 8, IE 8 (yes...UPGRADED us to this) and when they did so, took away our admin rights to download other options like Chrome and Firefox because our IS department doesn't support other browsers. GRRRRRRR

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    We had that at a place I worked a few years ago, they were using IE6 and only as I left upgraded to IE8. It was incredibly frustrating (luckily we found we could install Chrome even though we weren't supposed to )

    Hi Kyle,

    I use Firefox at home. I'm retired and, so far, unsuccessful in catching any kind of work

    @Tony, I'm giving vBulletin a miss, currently still evaluating, but Vanilla and phpBB are currently taking the lead.

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    What's Chrome / Firefox / Safari?

    Is it some new hybrid browser?
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    Haha sort of safari and chrome are pretty much the same anyway. They were grouped together as the "modern browsers" that auto update, I was going to stick opera in there too but I couldn't remember whether it does the same thing.

    IE is tied to windows updates and operating systems so the spread of versions is much wider and much more painful to support, whereas users on the other browsers all tend to be on the same version.

    Though I believe things may change slightly with windows 10.....

    With the other bet they're WebKit (chrome like) anyway. Besides using this site on mobile is awful...

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    I had a terrible experience with IE10. I was unable to update Adobe. I spent over a week on this issue and even posted a question on this forum. Since then I have discovered Firefox and has never looked back. I do not think there is a "One fits all". Each has its own pluses and minuses. IE has not longer the monopoly it had, but we are tied up to it because of windows.

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    In my office I am allowed to use only Firefox and Chrome.

    But I use Opera Portable version for answering excel forum questions, because I put each tab on auto reload for every 5 seconds and I keep almost 7 excel subforum windows with auto reload option. I tested all browsers but Opera is the best one which handles loading each pages without any hanging or plugin issues.

    Firefox fails when the page has lot of plugins and chrome consumes huge ram space for each windows.

    So my preferences are Opera and Firefox. I never use chrome because of the ram consumption.

    Re: Which browser do you use?

    I polled for IE11, but at work we have a choice of IE (11) and Chrome. With all SharePoint related stuff we need IE. With some other apps we need Chrome.

    Teylyn,

    Edge is probably in the "round" filing cabinet where it belongs!
