Pri, Much as there are some improvements to software and hardware from year to year, what attracts users to update is when a point is reached when a perceived significant leap forward can be seen by the user. Companies and software writers have a different agenda. They are constantly striving to improve their wares and generate additional money. The amount that these improvements are to a users benefit and demand an upgrade is often questionable.
Something Flash still cannot do.
Quote from: priSomething Flash still cannot do.actually the 'big' flash 10.1 update added quite a bit of hardware accel.... more is planned... flash runs on android phones after all
Nuffin' like a good ragin argument...keeps watchin'...
and as far as codecs go id rather theora than h.264....
being forced to buy new hardware and software by these upgrade forcing parasites its just plain wrong.
I see the topic has shifted again so let me reiterate something I often mention in such topics.I don't care what manufacturers want to sell and I don't care to see more of my bandwidth being sucked up by video/flash adverts, if this was about who can make the most prettiest site it may be important but face facts the majority of sites dont need such stuff so lets remember here upgrading to keep some advert ridden site happy is great if your stupid but for the rest of us watching our wallet being forced to buy new hardware and software by these upgrade forcing parasites its just plain wrong.Think about this sensibly, do we force ford cars off the road because we think rolls royces are better ? /me waits for incoming
i agree, i can not afford to upgrade and personally, i dont want to upgrade,i like my XP and Firefox,my pc is now 7-8yrs old, it has never done a windows update, i did obtain SP3 as a downloaded package, not on updates, because i dont want the microsoft xp termination patch to make me use win7.
I mentioned ads, cos like it or not, they ARE a form of 'served content', detestable, despisable, but still 'content' that needs the newer browsers to display properly, which means even us IE8 users have to suffer the damned things, hence the discussion about ad-blockers...And push firefox as much as you like, it too is becoming bloatware...
