Firefox, you lost

Posted: October 4th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: madabout, online | Tags: , , , , , , | No Comments »

Sadly but I don’t have a computer at home, occasionally, I read news or I write posts like this on an old Tecra A3: 512MB RAM, super slow HDD, intel 915GM video card and extra large resolution 1400×1050.
I’ve been using Firefox for ages, but after I read a post about using IE8 instead of Firefox 3.5.x+AdBlock Plus I was curious about the results.

I went home and I have installed IE8.
And, it’s true.
IE8 on old computers is faster than firefox.
I have enough free memory for my tabs, no more than ten.

On the computer at work I have about 60 tabs open, anytime, I didn’t felt like I have a problem, slow computer, not enough memory.
But, on this one, old one, IE8 is faster.

So, Firefox you lost this battle on old computers.
Sorry. Moved to IE8.

And another thing, there are no adblock features comming with IE8, but you can install a local proxy to filter your web traffic like I did, BFilter.


Why Adobe Online Store sucks

Because you cannot buy from their store if you are from Romania.

After three attempts to pay with a Visa credit card I have called support to ask why my orders are rejected. The response was: you have to ask at a local reseller, you cannot buy from online store.

My question is: Why is still possible to select Romania when you want to place an order?

Anyway it sucks… it’s easier to download a crack than buy an adobe license. It’s easier to be illegal than legal, that’s why crack sites still exists.
