Well . . . so much for my Flock experiment.
Tonight, Flock decided to develop a show-stopping bug. See, Flock suffers a segmentation fault every time I open a Webpage. It sometimes does so when I open History in the sidebar, or even just when I switch focus away from it and back to it.
Sounds like a real winner! Don’t you think so?
I’m back to using Firefox 3 now (and I turned off that asinine “smooth scrolling” crap in the tab bar, by setting
toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll to “false” in
about:config). A browser that never loads a Webpage is kind of useless to me. Bye-bye, Flock. Go flock yourself.
Let’s see, here . . . what browsers have I tried out that are at least nominally up to date? In no particular order:
Chromium isn’t really in a release-worthy, usable form yet. If I had the C/C++ code-fu, you could bet your firstborn I’d be working on it, though.
Dillo sucks, except when I time-travel to 1995. Then it’s awesome.
Emacs/W3 sucks. What — you didn’t know Emacs has a Web browser?
Firefox (including Iceweasel and Swiftfox) sucks.
Internet Explorer sucks.
Java-based browsers suck by definition.
Lynx sucks (including all knock-offs I’ve seen, like Links and ELinks).
Mozilla suite sucks.
I really hope Chromium makes it into FreeBSD ports soon and doesn’t suck when it gets there. I’m tired of browsers that suck. I want a non-sucking browser.
Is that really so much to ask?
