Now is it bad enough that you let somebody else kick your butts without you trying to do it to each other? Now if we're all talking about the same man, and I think we are... it appears he's got a rather growing collection of our bikes.
Depends on the box, my own PC is fine but at some client sites they have staff on older equipment some even 32 bit, and on a low memory older gen box chrome sucks, it kills the machine and itself. (ff and ie no problems on those same boxes for the same sites.)
Oh I'm sure your machine is fine, how many GB? SSD I bet, and I'm sure no problems going to complicated sites (that ie would probably croak on.)
I'm talking about simple sites, real work sites, i.e. govt info form filling, no fancy crap (beyond security)
And on older equipment, for people doing real work, these things are true:
ie and ff work, good response, also allows other programs (i.e. excel, word) to continue working on same PC while they are doing it.
chrome stops everything, yes everything.
Yes they would love to have shiny new high powered toys like yours, but the boss knows they can do their work with what they have so they're stuck with the old machines, he doesn't care about their leisure browsing (- not allowed anyway.) If ie lets them get their work done then that's all they need anyway, if chrome croaks: too bad, get back to work and use the tool that can do the job.
Once again: on older equipment, compared to every other browser: chrome is the worst sort of pig.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I remember a long time ago, someone posted a link to a app that prevents people from loading programs on windows 7+
It was written by a Code Project member that hangs out here.
I think it was in response to the Russian app that encrypts your hard drive and demands a payment to unlock it.
I downloaded it years ago, and put it on this girls computer that I deemed reckless, and it works like a charm, but I can't locate the program or remember the name of it so I can load it on another computer in the warehouse.
Here's the story,
Literally, somebody walked in the warehouse and connected a phone or something in the USB port and loaded a nasty app that tapped the internet connection, created a sql database, and made recording. Then it called home and transferred the data home to Poland.
