Stop using AOL’s web browser!

August 4, 2008


Over the years, I’ve found that every time that I come across the AOL browser … trouble starts.

Just today, someone was having problems watching Flash FLV based videos, where the videos would just stop half way through for no apparent reasons.

As it turned out, it was the AOL browser (a modified version of IE, so I’m told) that was screwing up. As soon as he switched to Firefox, everything worked fine.

The AOL browser isn’t the only bad actor – many micro-niche browsers are often times the source of strange problems that you don’t get using the major browsers out there. So do yourself a favor, stick to Firefox or IE.

… And keep up to date, they are free after all.
