BugZone: Nothing's perfect...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Thanks. I'm guessing we missed it because we checked it with Chrome. Let us know if anything looks crazy again.
This is genuinely not fanboi-ism as I'm a Chrome man myself, but with the latest releases of each, Firefox is now considered the more stable and mature browser, and many Chrome die-hards are reverting. Just my 2c.
I've used Firefox all along, I was actually amazed to see how much Chrome was dominating the market. I thought 'I may as well be a Netscape user'.
I Googled the Chrome vs Firefox thing after posting and it seems that Chrome still has a very marginal lead, but Firefox is accelerating so quickly that it's likely to have taken the lead since the numbers have been crunched. The primary driver is that Mozilla did a complete rewrite on Firefox, partially to exploit multiple cores better.

Oddly, if you use the online Work Permit portal, it will not function to completion on Firefox, but will on Chrome, although there will be no dialog boxes or other information to tell you what's going wrong. Learned this the hard way. The final three documents won't upload in Firefox, but may appear to. Obviously a lack of cross-browser functionality testing there.

Yeah, that's the issue. Most things are mainly checked against Chrome or Safari, so Firefox gets overlooked or looked into later. And not to mention poor Netscape Navigator....

Wow, you're right. And I'm so very wrong - I went and checked a few other sources, as well, and they say the same as your link. I must have been reading fake news.

Yeah it's a pretty sad state of affairs when the second most popular browser is IE and it's only on 12% and you're third on 11. Although they don't include Edge's 4% in the IE figure. Still a ridiculous domination by Chrome. Android phones would be the #1 reason though.

Agreed - although I looked at the Desktop (only) stats on your link, and they're about the same.

Well spotted. That's also surprising. Google really are masters of market domination aren't they.

Wow, I would have assumed Safari is ranked MUCH higher.

Same old tired debate. A lot of the corporate stuff is written and only checked to run on Chrome because of lazy programmers. So forced to use chrome. Same as the rest of the corporate PC world writing programs in Windows XP because of laziness and the creating a wrapper so it can run on all the machines.
