The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.

I try to avoid anything from these sphincters. With a VPN, it's far easier to use DuckDuckGo or StartPage (which forwards Only Do Evil's results anyway). If I use their search engine directly, it often wants me to go through several captchas to prove I'm not a bot. No wonder, because VPNs make it harder to assemble dossiers. There's far more that could be said. If Dante were still around, he'd add an extra circle in Hell for these pricks.
I switched from Firefox some years ago and never regretted it. And I even installed Chrome on my iPad to replace the awful Safari. From what I have seen of Edge (when MS forces me to use it) it is not that wonderful.
Chrome "just works" - it displays every page you throw at it, and it's "multi-device" support is excellent - you can send pages to other devices such as my phone or Surface for later.
It's stable, it's not ugly, you can mute all tabs except for those on a white list, ...
I've been using it for years and have no problem with it.

hmm, So Chrome worked its way to the top and now is the one that has the biggest target on its back. That is all articles like this are saying. Hey I want to take pot shots at the most used/biggest thing out there.
That being said there are other browsers. LOTS of other browsers. And this author only listed the big ones that everyone already knows about anyway. In the past 6 months I have tried out the following browsers
Chrome - Just works!
Opera - Works pretty Well
Old Edge - ummm you mean IE 12? It sort of worked.
IE11 - Needed for somethings avoid for all others.
New Edge - Actually pretty spiffy.
Brave - IT is a Brave new browser called Brave? It actually is worth checking out. I kind of like it.
FireFox - See Opera.
Sea Monkey - See Opera. only less so.
Tor Browser - HAHAHAHA Yes it works slowly. Not sure why you would unless you want to hide what you are searching for. Which would cut down on ads if you are willing to go that route all the time.
So all that being said. Who cares? Which one works for you use it.

Exactly. It happened to IE, it happened to Firefox, now it's happening to Chrome. Welcome to the internet.
I'm old enough to remember when Firefox came out and people talked about it like it cured cancer. "Gah, IE is RUBBISH, use Firefox", that's all you read. Now it's "Gah, Firefox is RUBBISH, use Chrome" and so on. It also makes me laugh when I see these kids rubbish webforms, MVC is great, now MVC is rubbish and the next thing is great. I always tell them that in a few years time what they think is great now they will think it's rubbish. I guess one thing experience teaches you is that things don't "become rubbish", it's just that other things improve.
In the old days, when you complained to web site that their pages didn't display properly, the answer was plain: "Why don't you use IE6? It works perfectly with IE6!"
Nowadays, the answer is equally plain: "Why don't you use Chrome? It works perfectly with Chrome!"
I've had this answer from two different web sites, and from numerous friends and colleagues. When I reply "Yeah - just like with IE6!", those old enough to remember the browser wars turn to mumbling and their face gets a darker color. (The younger ones don't have a clue.)
I started using FF as an alternative to IE6. I keep on using FF as an alternative to Chrome.
Feel free to downvote if you consider this upvote driving. But if you like to play around with Mandelbrots, I've just updated my fractal browser so you can save and open fractals, among other items! If you are bored on a Saturday night, hope this alleviates your problem!
(It doesn't show as being updated, but it has a 1/16/21 update at the beginning of the article, unless CP hides revisions until after they've been reviewed.)
First time that my garlic comes up any significant, so I do not know if there is any relation between the thickness of the stem and the bulb size to be, but if there I may have some apple-size garlic bulbs down in the soil...
