  • Have removed Flash from all my OS's so haven't encountered those problems. There are some sites, or parts of sites, I don't have access to because of it though.
  • This wasn't really meant to be an in-depth comparison. Based on my experience with it I was surprised to hear (in the article referenced above) that Safari wasn't used more.
  • Don't know, using an iMac these days.
  • Have tried to find a way to block them directly in Safari; I'll check out plug-ins.
  • Usually there's no sound but they still load and play in Safari, which of course slows things down and is distracting. Will have to check my ad blocker to see if there's an option for that.
  • Haven't had Firefox fail yet but that would definitely put me off too.
  • Understand. Keyboard shortcuts are important! ;-)
  • In a Firefox tab type about:config in the address bar, disable the 'dire' warning, then go to: plugins.click_to_play and set it to true if not already the default. then go to: media.autoplay.enabled ...
  • Firefox used to seem a little faster in Yosemite and earlier (to me) but now I don't see much difference either. One thing I like better about Firefox is being able to completely stop autoplay of ...
  • Created discussion thread Firefox over Safari?
    Firefox has struggled in popularity but it seems Safari may be even less popular: http://www.computerworld.com/article/3146515/web-browsers/firefox-recovers-from-near-death-experience.html Have ...
  • Have also been checking out laptops, including the X360, so it's good to hear of your positive experience. Have you tried it with an external monitor? The new Surface Book looks good too but seems ...
  • Yeah, noticed that yesterday but didn't try to download and install it. Checked again today and it still asks so thought I'd go ahead. The download is over 2GB and the estimate was 2 hours just to ...
  • Have similar 'PC' experience as you, then jumped ship to Apple in 2000 or so. Yeah, "designed obsolescence" is pretty galling, to say the least. Can't complain too much overall, other than ver 2 ...
  • +1 My wife is using a 2009 MBP (the same model as the OP) with 4GB RAM and 10.11. It works great for her web browsing and email. She also uses a 2007 iMac with 2GB RAM on 10.11 and it has no ...
  • Blink, blinkitty, blink, blink, blink ----> (LOL) ;-)
  • Yeah, nothin' like an 'old drive' skeet shoot! ;-)
  • Since first playing around with one at Best Buy earlier this year I've been thinking about the Surface Book as well. The build is very solid and the screen is beautiful, that it's a touch screen ...
  • Will take a serious look at the new Surface Book when it's available, but have found alternatives from Dell, Asus and Lenovo that would work well for me too. Since I don't have demanding needs ...
  • Apple’s pricing policy has always been frustrating. Guess us ‘fools and our money’ have been funding that silly ‘spaceship’ in Cupertino. To me a $200 discount isn't nearly enough for the older ...
  • The issue, I think, is that Apple maintains full price for 'too long' on what soon becomes 'old tech'. In a few short months after release (if not sooner) Apple computers usually lag other ...
