Web Browsers And Kernel Panics

2001-04-04 10:21 ☼ post

My browser of choice in MacOS X is currently Internet Explorer 5 Classic. IE 5 Carbon is broken (no copying and pasting in the address bar) and slow. OmniWeb is Cocoa based and nice in a lot ways as a result, but still way to slow for my tastes and perhaps most importantly, it breaks Blogger. I haven’t tried Fizzilla yet, but I’m sure I will soon. I’m also looking forward to the final release of Opera because it’s the fastest browser I’ve seen for the Mac.

I’ve decided to bite the bullet and see if I can operate from within MacOS X the majority of the time. Time to order some more RAM.

I caused my first kernel panic today while trying to go to localhost (I’m still playing with Radio Userland) in IE 5 Classic. I’m not sure if that was the reason or not, but I’ll try to verify it when I get home from work.
