Pro Utilitate Hominum by Kasamizuki Pro Utilitate Hominum by Kasamizuki
Internet Explorer versus Mozilla Firefox! It's a classical argument, or... shall I say, it's a common one. While it isn't necessarily "good versus evil," it may very well be according to perspective. There are avid IE users, and avid FF users, so, naturally, they'll argue about which is better. And, when there's an issue about who/what is "better," it tends to be a watered down version of the "good versus evil" concept.

I show IE as a vicious little beast, maybe because I'm biased, but more because it depicts the general side of negative feedback, whereas Firefox shows its back and it's hard to tell if it has the same kind of face/impression. So this isn't to say, exactly, which is better, but rather an example of such.

Also, the reason why IE is wearing makeshift ears and a tail is because it recently shifted to look and operate more like Firefox. And, though it does succeed in some aspects, it is certainly not quite the same.

On another note, "Pro Utilitate Hominum" translates roughly to "For the service of mankind," and that includes males and females, to clarify. I used this saying because that's what the internet is for, for our use. It is a virtual service for humans who have access to connected computers. And these two browsers, IE and FF, are fighting to win over their audiences, always improving and updating to make life easier for us.

wasnt IE created before FF?

how can you say that IE is trying to look like FF if IE came first...
Reply
:iconkasamizuki:
Kasamizuki Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010
It's not a matter of what was created first, but, rather, the fact that IE's interface mimicked FF's in an update that followed FF's introduction.

You should update it to include the new IE attack. Where Microsoft has infiltrated Firefox with it's new .Net Framework Assistant thingy.:?

Oh... oh... what the heck? e___e;;; MS, that is so low.

I don't have that installed on my comp though. ... Oh. Wait. I didn't start using this laptop until April or something. But my desktop might have it. @_@ Would explain why it's slowed down.

Mayyybe, I will draw a new version when I get back from vacation, better quality than this one since I won't have a deadline. ;< Hargh.

Don't fret, and if you don't use Windows Update or haven't yet, then you don't have to worry about it. The reason a lot of people choose FF is because it is superior to IE in security. What Microsoft did, was find a way to implement the same security flaw IE had into FF. It is relatively easy to remove, but in my case, I have had to continually remove it as Microsoft keeps installing it.
A google search will take you to at least a couple thousand sites where, if you have it installed ( just open your add-on window and look for Microsoft), you will be able to find the proper steps to remove it.
I am happy I saw your entry. It is beautiful and very well explained. You are a very talented artist and I am glad to have run across you.
Much love :peace::hug::love::pee:

I like the way you portray Internet Explorer, whit makeshift ears. I’ve never been a fan of Internet Explorer, but the Mozilla Firefox-lookalike won’t even run.

Heh. Well, we all have our opinions, eh? Though most of the people I know or have talked to prefer Firefox. I, however, won't speak for everyone - this is a mere representation. Who knows what the Fox's expression really is? ;3
