More “they landed here”

I really thought I was done blogging for today, but I’m all about conserving spoons in the afternoon so I’m pretty much glued to the computer. I was playing around in my tracker again and there was some page activity I found interesting. I probably wouldn’t have published this search because it’s a normal search, but the visitor’s specs interested me.
Google Search Engine Phrase: “mlb” “brian charlson”

What got me though is this:

Browser: Firefox 3.0 Operating System: Mac OS 10

Why does this fascinate me? I thought Mac didn’t like Firefox? Am I mistaken? The visitor was from Berkley and that makes me think he/she may be a computer guru. If you come back, and you might since you stayed 14 minutes, and you don’t think I’m creepy for spying, maybe you’ll shed some light on how you’re using Firefox with Mac.

Or maybe it’s another browser I’m thinking of. Carin? I’m intrigued because I think it’s Firefox that uses that web vysom thing, right?

  1. Yes, it’s firefox that uses it. I’m not sure how I ever got along without Webvisum. It’s one of those where have you been all my life type tools, one of those things that totally changes the internet. Anybody who isn’t using it and can, for god’s sake start! You’ll almost never have to curse about those type the letters you see in the graphic things ever again.

    Yeah I know and I really want it. But I was under the impression that Firefox and Mac didn’t talk. I’m gonna have to look into that after I get back.

  3. I’m on a mac at home and work. Although I use Safari at home, I solely use Firefox on Mac. Actually, Firefox is more reliable than Safari on a mac.

    Interesting. I’m going to have to look into it. Maybe it just doesn’t work with Voiceover. I’ll have to do some research when I get back.

  5. It is not firefox and mac that do not get along, it is Firefox and Voiceover. Firefox does not have some kind of accessibility doo hickers built in that Voiceover can understand. That is my understanding of where things stand. But just this week, a dude on the mac visionaries list wrote a blog post about Firefox and Macs and linked to it. Maybe if you read that, it may shed more light on stuff.

    I’ll have to check it out.

    So it probably means that the baseball fan is a sightie lol! Ok baseball fan, you’re off the hook if you come back 😉

    Unless of course you’re blind and using Voiceover haha!
