  • I can't play flash full screen in Firefox 52.0 on my favourite streaming site, yet Opera 43.0.2442.1144 plays it perfectly. Some sites tell you your browser is out of date and you should upgrade to Chrome or Firefox lol. I don't understand it lol.

    Opera still runs better for me in 99% of sites than any other browser I have on Windows.

    "Testing with a clean profile" it's a solution for every browser issue. xD

    Which raises a recurring question I've pondered for quite a while: why are browser profiles so fragile, their 'resetting' seeming to be a successful remedy for all kinds of browser issues? And it's not just Opera... I've seen it with Chrome, Vivaldi, Firefox, and others. That is, when nothing else seems to solve a browser problem, try again with a clean profile and things suddenly work.

    Yet why are the user profiles becoming so readily corrupted (apparently in so many ways, given the different kinds of problems they appear to cause) in so many modern browser designs? To me, it seems to bear some serious looking into. My office, CAD, math and other programs never have multiple failure modes solvable by simply 'resetting' one user-specific folder (or any other kind of folder)... yet resetting the browser profile is probably the most consistent solution to browser problems today.

  • I suppose it is because of the amount and diversity of data it handles during months and the minds who has coded it, so that even though there are some rules, there are sites with many faults that make the browser work even more, they make interpretations based on rules or workarounds, because there are webs that look different according to the browser, something absurd because it is a language, 2 points, same language = communication, but having made the early web for "a particular browser" "without rules" and limited causes an excessive amount of work for Devs.

    It is implausible that some Chromium based browsers do not work the same on all sites and even some block them.

    The other programs only manage their own file formats and if there is an error or warns or does not read the file, also when you load one or more files to edit, view, read ... you are aware of the documents you load, a Browser load many things that the user does not know the relationship with the rest of services, plugins like Flash give many problems, Java discarded it, HTML5 is not 100% extended yet, event the resources that eats are too much, plugins from other programs...

    When there are changes in a site and you have to clean delete site data settings/cookies/cache should be notified from the site itself or even better communicated to the browser to do it without it having to go bad for the user to report and tell him Delete cookies / cache... Communicate from the website to the browser a modification that needs a reset of data would facilitate easy clean navigation, at least if not, a notice on the web to reset the data manually because of modifications that may incur in site navigation problems.

    Hence applications like cCleaner that automate those cleaning actions.

    The use of extensions also causes problems sometimes, even interference between extensions, as when everyone speaks at the same time and no one understand anything, a manager is needed 馃槃

  • I misunderstood about other programs, but usually other programs has not given me problems so I can not say to much about them...
