[ars techinca] which Web browser is best for business? - Page 2

post #11 of 58
I use Firefox and Chrome, the former for browsing in general (I'm used to it) and the latter when recording HTTP requests/responses when navigating through websites. IE is there for emergency purposes only.

Most people in my company use Chrome as they like the element inspector and don't know about Firebug. One uses Opera a fair bit as well.

I run out of memory regardless of which browser I use so the thirstiness factor isn't an issue for me.

Google Chrome with Active Directory, oh yes.

I use both Chrome and Internet Explorer at work. Internet Explorer is a must when using SharePoint. Chrome seems to work better with some of my company's web applications. Go figure...

Anything Chrome can do, Firefox can do. Don't act like Kiosk mode is some super exclusive thing that's only possible on Chrome. Oh, and how is everything "far better" in Chrome?

What does active directory have to do with what browser you're using?

The only difference I see is that tab-browsing is enabled on single-page views on everything except IE.

I would say it is Firefox. I run Firefox Nightly 64bit with NoScripts dev build and Adblock Plus Beta. With that and no save passwords no tracking and delete tmp and history on close I am sure it is very secure.biggrin.gif The Beta or even stable with adblock plus and noscripts with a admin controlled whitelisting for both it would make it very secure internet experience for a company and keep down the bandwidth for actual mission critical stuff. Thus no video streaming taking up bandwidth, no idiot employees going to sites they aren't suppose to go, and no facebooking and no youtube. thumb.gif
