Firefox Drops to 3rd Place

I remember driving to the mall with my dad, to buy a copy of Netscape Navigator 1.2 on floppy disks. Since that time I’ve had a soft spot for Netscape and its successors, including Firebird and the increasingly irrelevant Firefox.

This month comes the news that Firefox has fallen to 3rd place, with more users on both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Life’s too short to waste time on a third place browser.  I am writing this on Google Chrome, and regularly use Internet Explorer.  But I’ve uninstalled Firefox.

IE7, Google Desktop, and MSHTML

What a joke:

I had some pretty major crashing on the new build of IE7 whereas the previous build worked just fine. The error reported is:

Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.5335.5, faulting module mshtml.dll, version 7.0.5335.5, fault address 0x000d850d.

For those that do not browse the usergroups, the fix that worked for me is to disable the Web History checkbox in Google Desktop indexing options.
