« Dis moi ton navigateur, je te dirai qui tu es »

Publié le 22 août 2006 par Damien Van Achter

Analyse à deux balles mais qui, forcément, tape assez juste.

The image “http://i2.wp.com/www.terminally-incoherent.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/firefox_bites_ie_awesome.jpg?w=960” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.



They might as well call you Mr. Web 2.0. You are all over flickr, del.icio.us, youtube and dozens of other websites, and your browser reflects it. You think that Firefox is OK, but it does not include all the blogging, photo sharing, tagging and bookmark sharing tools right there at your fingertips. You wish you could get a chip implanted in your brain so that you would stay connected to the web and be able to moblog 24/7. When the small minded people tell you that Flock is just a fork of Firefox you dismiss them saying they are not seeing the big picture.


Congratulations! You are a Mac user with all perks and benefits that title offers you. You love OSX, and you would never use Windows. It just seems ugly and kludge stricken to you. You like the simplicity, and clarity that Mac offers you, and Safari is a browser that just works for you. You never really bothered to look for another one, because you are fully satisfied with what you have and you wouldn’t change it for the world.

Firefox 1.x:

You are most likely a little bit geeky and proud of it. You are a strong supporter of the Open Source movement, and you think that RMS is “the man”. You really don’t care if FF is faster, or safer than IE – you would use it even if it performed 10 times worse. You are just happy that you have a free, open source browser with a huge community that is supporting it. At any given time you have installed at least 7 extensions that you couldn’t live without.

IE 6.0:

You probably don’t know what a “browser” is and you think Internet is IE. You have no clue about technology, and you are generally afraid of computers. You also use your machine only for IM, chat, email and myspace. Your friends keep telling you about that “Fried Fox” thingy but you don’t really understand this stuff and never really had time to look into it.

IE 7.0:

You consider yourself to be on the cutting edge of technology. You think that Microsoft is the greatest company on the earth, and that this evil “Lenoux” operating system is made by terrorists. You have a poster of Steve Ballmer on your wall, and you want to be like Bill Gates when you grow up. When you think about Vista you get goosebumps and shiver with excitement.

Une réflexion au sujet de « « Dis moi ton navigateur, je te dirai qui tu es » »

  1. Olivier De Doncker

    Bof. Personnellement (et nombre de mes collègues font de même), j’utilise Firefox avant tout pour sa navigation en onglets. Si IE avait la même possibilité, je ne pense pas que je serais passé à Firefox.

  2. Jonathan Loriaux

    « Epiphany:

    You are a Gnome user and proud of it. You consider KDE a torture device from hell. You are fond of explaining people that KDE must be configured for hours before it can be usable. The people who claim that KDE is totally usable right out of the box are definitely dirty liers. You prefer things simple and intuitive – that’s why you picked Gnome, and that’s why you use Epiphany. You tried using Mozzila and Firefox but you found them bloated, counterintuitive and ugly. Your desktop is neat an organized, just like your desk is. »

    C’est vrai, j’avoue, tout est vrai dans cette description, et j’en suis tout à fait content !

    >Jonathan,Paul,Prom’: hééh, je savais que ce genre de truc vous plairait les gars.. moi aussi j’étais frappé de voir comme la description du Flock user collait bien. Le explorer 7.0 m’a déchiré les zigomatiques !
    >Olivier: ton petit coté objecteur de conscience du web 2.0 commençait à me manquer… Rassure toi, la navigation par onglets est prévue dans Vista, tu vas (mais quand ?)pouvoir baquer Firefox.

  4. Olivier De Doncker

    Non, non, réflexion faite, je garderai quand même Firefox pour son petit côté rebelle qui me plaît bien. Et puis je suis en train d’écrire un papier dessus, alors ;-)…

    sinon pour les vrais fan d’IE et qui veulent les onglets, y’a maxthon qui marche encore relativement bien… pas aussi intuitif que Firefox mais bon…
