in reply to Browsing PerlMonks with ...

To answer your question directly, I use Nestc(r)ape1 4.51 to browse perlmonks. To get a good general idea of how the numbers stack up by OS / browser try visiting this greatly underpublicized node.

1I'll explain this lest I get downvoted unnecessarily. My friend and I started calling referring to our favorite (of the two) browsers by this name back in the Win 95 days, where the general instability of windows and the bugginess of the browser combined to make lynx a very attractive option. I have long since forsaken windows and the resultant familiarity with the BIOS screen, but the quirkiness of Netscape remains. To date this is by far the most stable version I've found, however it has a memory leak that manages to completely fill my 64MB RAM and 128 MB swap partition every 8-12 hours or so. Come quickly great lizard! Make haste oh konqueror!

And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.

      Glad to help. I believe that this place has a lot of little features like this that originated when the monastery was young. From perusing the home nodes of monks who've been here longer than myself it appears that these were common knowledge at the time, but since they weren't really documented anywhere the knowledge of their existence is passed along only by word of mouth (or word of keystrokes, as the case may be). I haven't found too many of these, but so far my favorite one would have to be the assume all vroom's godly powers node. Try it. Vroom wouldn't leave nodes just lying around unless he wanted us visiting them, would he?

      And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
