A few months ago I ditched Internet Explorer when the update to v10 broke WordPress. Chrome executed OK, except after a while it also hard-crashed my system – so hard I had to power off every time, wait thirty seconds, and cold-boot. Multiple times. Not good. Something to do with the update to v28.
That was when I reverted to my old standby, Sea Monkey. It’s free. It’s made by Mozilla – same people who do Firefox and Thunderbird – and it has a capable built-in HTML editor which I use to maintain my main website http://www.matthewwright.net . That’s a bespoke site, custom coded from scratch by an IT professional – no pre-canned WordPress or Jumla themes here. It’s also designed to work with basic HTML – no Java, Flash or anything else, just quick clean response that should work on anything, no add-ons. Hopefully. I do all the graphics and content management. Sometimes with Sea Monkey, sometimes the hard way (open the web page up in WordPad and start coding).
Yes folks, I am a geek, at least part-time. So why don’t I deploy the inner geek a little more and fix the Explorer issue? I can’t mess about. Time spent fixing the tools is time taken away from producing with them.
Incidentally, does anybody remember those brine shrimp – er – Sea Monkeys you used to be able to get?
