IE & Opera > firefox ;)

I don't like people who like MS bashing just because they're microsoft... I've had firefox freeze on me more times in a month than IE ever has!!! On top of that, it's poor compatibility with most windows functions/applications is poor... I have no idea why every moron and their dog is jumping ship...

Opera on the other hand... a bit greedy on the shareware thing, but overall a sturdy product...

I had firefox freeze when it was 0.7beta, but now it's solid as a rock. What I love about firefox is that if i design a site to use css, it WILL render it accordingly where IE won't. I've had to put in numerous bug fixes to get my sites viewable by IE 5+6. Also activex, is the biggest security f**kup by microsoft in it's entire history.

But they're certainly heading on the right track with IE7 by "borrowing" firefox features.... maybe one day i'll like IE again, but for now... switch!

It's amazing how spyware literally disappears when you switch from IE to firefox. Adaware has never been happier on my pc's.

Tabbed browsing, woohoo!

(Yes I have tried Opera and know that it does have tabbed browsing too, but overall Firefox suits me better, just like Opera and IE suit you better)

Need more people

I think this site is great but the only problem is there's not enough people logging on and commenting. Over the last couple of weeks I've been starting new topics and I log on every couple of days to see who's replied to my comments. Every time I get disapointed because very few people reply !!

This site has only been around for slightly more than a year I pressume? So I think it is doing good at the moment with the amount of participation.

I would rather see a forum website full of useful information rather than being flocked with thousands of members spamming and crapping out everything.

I have since come to learn that the purpose of the forum is to discuss all sorts of development that is going around Adelaide and in South Australia only, except for the lounge area for general discussion for non-related stuffs.

I can assure that pretty much all developments in SA are being covered and discussed here in Sensational Adelaide be it an interest or not, the most important thing is they are covered.

This is still the best and most efficient forum that I have participated over the numurous numbers of other forums that I am participating in, which often cramped with craps, e-wars, spammers, lamers, jokers and you name it.

I'm pretty happy with the amount of positive and informative responses we get here. We've got good members and I personally want to keep it this way - and hope to build on the good will that our members have in sharing what they find. Even though we don't get instantaneous replies (i understand we're all very busy).. if it's important enough to write, you can be sure we'll write it.

Thanks for the kind comments edgar, i agree that we're on a good thing.

Ditto - I also find I know far more than ALL my friends and family in Adelaide - put together!! Top info and always well ahead of the actual happenings. They often find it annoying I am so far ahead in my info about 'their' city - but are still grateful gor the insights.

I have a suggestion.

How about setting up a Development Ideas section where people can put together
ideas on what would be good future developments for Adelaide.

For example I have an idea which involves further expanding the Zoo. I have put
this idea under the Adelaide Zoo thread in The Pub section.

I noticed other people have come up with development ideas and have posted them
in different sections of the site. E.g. One person came up with the idea of re-developing
Adelaide oval before Mike Rann announced his re-development plan.

If a Development Ideas section was created then all the idea would be in one place rather
than scattered throughout the site.
