Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Default Browser

2010-02-02 Thread Glen Bizeau
I think this is one of those time when we are all going to agree to disagree...

Julien, if we go with Midori, can we put a script or shortcut on the
desktop that will install FF?

Personally I think this would fit the bill, have a lite browser, but
give users who don't know very much a simple way to
install FF. I am thinking about the illiterate here, bot people like
us who know what we are doing.

I'm fine with Midori since it seems to do everything FF does, but I
suspect if we have some way to track it, I think you
would see a lot of FF installs after the fact.

 Hi Steve,

 I found changing preferences to identify as Safari was best for online

 I know that trick, I have the User Agent Switcher plugin on FF for problems
 like that.  I’m just thinking of users who don’t know or understand about
 this.

 I have found a couple of problems sites with Midori but they appear to be

 tend to work OK, a few sites told me FF 3.0, 3.5  3.6 was unsupported.
 Online banking sites are another matter, obviously I can only test mine,
 which refuses to cooperate with Midori, Opera and FF 3.5  3.6.  I am not
 sure if this will be a major problem, would the target group for this
 distro use online banking.
 The thing is, just how critical are these two.

 It looks like they are not going to get sorted any time soon.

2010-02-02 Thread Julien Lavergne
I know we will not be all agree after this discussion. But I 'm  
collecting arguments for all browsers to make a decision after the  
discussion.
