Royal Games Fails with Browser Detection… What Year is This

Browser Detection FAIL!!!
Candy Crush Internet Explorer

First off, you developer person fail at life for using browser detection in 2013, secondly you provide links to download flash and firefox to ‘upgrade my system’ who are you to tell me my ‘system’ needs an upgrade. My first reaction was to open Firefox, but a split second later I thought, F12 that shit. So dev tools, change user agent…. MAGIC Royal Games CAN RUN IN INTERNET EXPLORER11. I also checked with IE11 in IE10 mode and it worked their too.

Xbox Live Update Public Beta Program

Looking to get the latest Xbox updates before everyone else?

Well you can sign up for the Xbox LIVE update public beta program right here. I just signed up but haven’t gotten the update yet. If anyone else has signed up for it I would like to hear about your results below.

And they never question it or explore different options. I am a constant user of Chrome, Firefox, and IE9 with some use of IE10, Opera, and Safari. For the most part I use Firefox for my web development, debugging, and general browsing, IE for Slacker Radio, iHeart Radio, Grooveshark, Woot, and a handful of other sites that use the pinned sites, and Chrome I use for web testing and some general browsing. Then I open up Opera and Safari for testing.

Firefox All The Way

For my first 6 or so years of owning a computer I used almost solely Firefox. I actually started with IE but as soon as I discovered Firefox, IE was out the door. Then Chrome comes out and I enjoyed it but not enough reason to switch over from Firefox. Continue reading “Browser Brand Loyalty Can Cause You To Miss Out On Nice Features”
