This is exactly why people use microsoft products. They don't even know they are using them. Because obviously "internet explorer"=internet and windows=computer. And router=internet provider. People are dumb.

hehe..since it seems that their browsers are search engines..they should lookup "Browser"

But some people just are like that..you can delete all desktop items and rename the browser to "Double click me for internet" and they still ask.."whats a double click?"

#21 firefox is not complicated. It's simple: you just use it. Lots of people say it's confusing because of all the addons. Newsflash: you don't have to use them if you don't like them!

#9 Most of the people that I know that don't know the difference don't use a PC at all. They went out and bought a MAC because someone told them to. They still just use it and have no idea what they are doing. Just keep Googling, Just keep Googling, Just keep Googling.

#16 You are absolutely right! Without using Google, most can't answer that question but it doesn't stop them from driving and most think they are pretty good when they have no clue! And do you know what a thrush Bering is (without using Google or Wiki)?

#10 Let's try silly New Yorkers... This does not represent all Americans or really all New Yorkers to be honest. You can go into any major city, anywhere in the world and ask any question and get LOTS of stupid answers!

My guess for the 92% wrong answers in this case might be that the people that can correctly answer this question are all indoors, USING THEIR COMPUTERS, or installing Firefox on a friends! lol

#9 ... some people I know talk about their pc (case+internals) as the "hard drive". It is not necessarily that people are "retarded" but they do not need to know what is what, just how to use it.

And yeah, masses are the same ones that elect presidents and change our "future"... talk about more complex topics and you hack their brain.
Picture of OwenRay43 achievements

I think they asked the wrong question..
they should have said WEBbrowser..

cause a browser could also be a filemanager, say explorer for windows, finder for mac, dolphin for kde (linux) etc.

i think Google Chrome is the best actually. For me it's the fastest. To others it's not...some people say firefox is faster and some people say google chrome is faster.

I think it's a skewed answer base. After all it's daytime, and the real computer geeks are still locked inside their lairs trying to get a kernel to compile, or sleeping, or gaming, or watching videos on snotr.

#36 No but nice try... a thrush bearing is a part of the main bearings for the crankshaft. The thrush bearings are located at the far ends of the crankshaft and help keep the crankshaft from moving forward or backwards in the block.

You're comparing knowing what the lets say the north bridge of a pc is vs what a browser is. Or in car terms knowing what a thrush bearing is vs what a wheel is.

The sad thing is that all those noobs are fucking it up for the rest of us who know what we are doing. All the crap unnecessary safety features in OS'es for instance. The use of laptops (throw away product, bound by manufacturer of the whole thing) at home instead of desktops. All the nagging about leaks here and there that wouldn't be a problem unless an idiot is working with the computer. Buying (expensive) crApple products instead of actually good products. And so on... And so on...

Picture of LB18743 achievements

+2 58. LB187 commented 14 years ago

#55 plus 1 for your reply, but you are actually making my case... No matter what subject in the entire universe you wish to refer to, there will always be noobs and they will always interact with something that they don't understand. Just because they don't understand something doesn't mean that they will cease interaction. And if this was the case, all understanding and progress would cease...

I know that noobs can be annoying and are also (at times) a source of amusement, but lets all be honest... Were any of born with the understanding of any skills that we now have other than eating, sleeping, breathing, and shitting?

We all had to start somewhere...

And as far as the crap "bloatware"... I just remove or turn it all off because I know how. Don't you do the same?
