Maxthon is better than IE7 

I’ve switched back to Maxthon after a few months playing with IE7. The program is slow, and appears to slow other programs on my computer. Maxthon uses the engine yet manages to be many times faster, and I have found the latest one to be compatible with the Google Toolbar, which I have become accustomed to. In addition, it doesn’t stop certain pop-ups—ones I know are safe in Blogger, for example—from coming up. It’s just less paranoid and more in keeping with normal surfing behaviour.
   I also like Maxthon’s genesis as a designed to circumvent the Politburo: it allows citizens to browse the internet freely, as some versions do have anonymous proxies built in, I believe. And they should be able to browse the internet freely, just as so many others do.
    still hasn’t sorted out its problems with displaying in the English language, so it’s thanks but no thanks. The chaps there at seem to think that I am the only person in the world who uses ligatures (or browses pages that have them): every browser they have put out after Netscape 4·7 has had a problem displaying smart quotation marks and ligatures in the same typeface as the rest of the text. (But I am not alone, as Joe Clark attests.) That was when Microsoft put out IE5, which, after its many incarnations, finally sorted out its problems with . It has been that way ever since, with the Microsoft browser being more compatible with the English language.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
