    "poll" on http://www.stopfirefox.com/cms/index.aspx
    "What Browser do you like best?"
    of course i had to choose ff. but the site wants cookies, so...

    also the "results button isn't working. perhaps it's a freaky javascript instead of a rational plian link.

    the links to outside crits are nice.

    Worked for me and interestingly current results are:
    What browser do you like best?
    Firefox 62.4%
    Other 24.7%
    MSIE 12.9%

    I like the IE Tab Extension which allows me to switch render engines on
    a tab for recalcitrant websites but I didn't have to use it here.

    Interesting site.They went to all the trouble to put up a site dogging
    Firefox yet FF is rated favorite browser by 87% of the people, "other" at
    like 27% and IE comes in around 12%. Not too impressive for IE...

    I have to question the voting. After all, I got to vote 5 times for
    other and once for FF. Other is Mozilla Suite, soon to be Seamonkey.

    A correction, "Mozilla Suite, soon to be Seamonkey" you say. SeaMonkey
    1.0 was released almost 2 months ago, so I would say "Mozilla Suite, now
    to be Seamonkey" :)

    BTW, I have voted for "other" since I use SeaMonkey exclusively. <g>

    People looking for honest results don't stuff the ballot box
    (unless I totally misunderstand what you're saying . . .)

    Perhaps pointing out that there is no such thing possible in this kind
    of unscientific polling as "honest results?"

    just can't remember who right now! ;-)

  9. IMO if a poll doesn't even try to prevent multiple votes cast by the
    same individual, it's not an 'honest poll'. That's ignoring any scope
    for leading questions, block voting, statistical jiggery-pokery, and so
    on. Small in this case, but even so. I don't think the owners of this
    site are exactly sitting on the fence.

    I fully agree with Arne. Coming from IE long time ago (as we all did)
    via Opera 8.5 and shortly changed tot SeaMonkey 1.0. It became my choice
    in a few weeks (not to blame Opera).

    They probably made it so that the results button won't work on Firefox.

    Never mind the voting, I have to question the numbers! 87% + 27% +
    12% add up to more than 100%
    (When I visited it FF=76%, Other 16.8%, MSIE 7.2%)
