If they need a "please use a browser written in this century" sign, they have larger problems

Margaret the "Mac" die-hard just woke up

First of all it's "Mac" not "MAC" - MAC means something altogether different.

Mac users rarely use IE - at one time it was a good browser, but after Safari came out, Microsoft quit updating it and now doesn't support it at all and it hasn't been updated for years. Safari is Apple's own browser and comes with the OS.

Safari does a pretty good job of rendering web pages properly and all the quick links etc are available on RetouchPRO.

Thanks for the alert though. If we only ever use the one platform, we might never know what we're missing.

Margaret

Margaret, forgive the error...it was my first time using a "Mac" (smile)

I'll let me sister know that she should switch to Safari. All is all it wasn't too hard to adjust to the Mac. The fun thing was it was also on a laptop, and I had never really worked on a laptop either; so I got to learn all kinds of new things.

Cheers,

~T

You're forgiven T, it's a mistake lots of people make

I've found Safari to be the best browser for the Mac, with Firefox coming in a close second. I usually keep IE installed for those rare occasions when I come across a web site that won't render in Safari or Firefox.

I've used a Mac laptop for about 3 years now and can't imagine going back to a desktop. I even bought a Windows laptop for some other work I'm doing! It's so easy to work when you're laying back in the recliner with your feet up - kind of blurs the line between work and play, but I'm enjoying it.

Maybe we'll make a convert out of you yet??

Perhaps I will play more on a laptop, but converting to a Mac probably won't happen as it would be too expensive to convert all the software.

Hi T Paul, the main reason for not using a Mac is that when they go awol, parts cost a fortune compared to PCs. When part prices come down I might consider a Mac, not before. Also over here, the chances of finding anyone who repairs Macs is pretty remote, PC repairers are falling out of the woodwork. May not be so your side of the pond, so can't comment there.
