The FactMicrosoft Australia launched a sort of "competition", called Ten Grand. Apparently, starting from Friday 19th, a twit will be released each N hours, creating a sort of one day investigation to discover where the price is (in my opinion somewhere in the same page where the contest begins, assumption created by my idea about M$ "fantasy").
The ProblemThat Web Page literally insults other web browsers, even discarding, probably on purpose, Opera one. In few words, that game is only for Internet Explorer 8 Users. OK, OK, they are apparently desperate enough to pay users in order to have more market share, fair enough, but what is all this "fun" about others?
- You'll never find it using old Firefox
- You'll never find it using boring Safari
- You'll never find it using tarnished Chrome
The Old FirefoxGrowing up, day after day and biting points to IE market share, Firefox has always been an advanced browser, specially compared with Internet Explorer. Easy for everyone, powerful for developers, Firefox supports, for example, still in draft HTML 5 elements and W3 standards ... since ages!
The Boring SafariWhen you catalog a browser with such adjective, boring, it means you do not have arguments at all and you have been swallowed in the kiddish gne, gne, gne twister unable to admit that "the boring one", is 2 laps around the world in front of you. The pioneer of CSS 3 transitions, effects, text properties, animations, one of the first to implement via WebKit guys (Gosh, I forgot to test WebKit there!!!) the new Squirrel Fish Engine, now Extreme in Safari 4, which is about 20 times faster than Internet Explorer ... but I forgot, boring is Safari because I guess boring is Mac OSX right? The Operating System famous for its native fluid user friendly special effects? Tha company that made iPhone, iPod, iWhatever, a must for everyone? Ooooohhhh Yes, that's boring!
The Tarnished Chrome... wait a second, it's probably me .... let me think ... "tarnished Chrome ... rome ... ome ... om". To be honest, when I read that, I though the creator of this Chrome dedicated version smoked a truly powerful drug, one of those drugs they write: use carefully in open spaces to avoid poisoning, but he rolled up the chemical stuff and that's the slogan: Avoid The Tarnished Chrome (The One With All Colorful Logo, Right?)
Which part is tarnished? Google is a "neverendingmoving" company, which rather than block Web Development for at least 5 years is putting effort every day to make the Web a better, evoluted place (Silverlight possibly excluded, personal opinion).
