      Not specifically game-related (I know), but as I’m reading about the browser wars, I thought to myself, that this may impact those game engines looking to deliver their content through web browsers.

      So. The question is, what is your browser of choice?

      Me? I started with the default IE, then played with Netscape Navigator (but it slipped off into the void), and was quite happy until about 3 years ago, when I used Firefox. Haven’t looked back since. Tried Google Chrome, its cool, but after a while, I returned to Firefox.

      Stories on SiliconRepublic, show Chrome as being the most "secure" or "hack-proof"


      and IE’s 8.0 being mostly ignored by the public (at least on day 01):

      Just wondering what the locals think, and also if any one has tried some of the 3D browser-based games on offer. Unity are pushing this tech pretty hard,


      Any users around these parts?

      Trying out that Unity Engine a little. Lots of good murmers from games devs giving it a try in their spare time. I think the interesting thing is the creators are coming from a non-traditional games dev background and the architecture of the tools is rather nice.

      Personally I reckon it could be lump of excrement and I’d like it simply for it’s web browser plugin abilities which allow you to access the graphics hardware.

      Always use Firefox at home. I wouldn’t call myself one of their fanboys, I’m just fond of the customised theme I’ve got going.

      I use IE7 while at work. It loads a lot faster than Firefox does on the system. Also, I prefer the IE7 theme over the default Firefox theme.

      Yep, pretty and shiny colours is the most important factor for me when it comes to picking a browser.
