    "Bad News! Suddenly, Orca can no longer be downloaded!"

    December 28, 2008  |   By rmchavin

    Pros

    Before this tragic termination of everybody's ability to download Orca browser, I considered it to be one of the 6 best browsers (the other 5 are Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla-based SeaMonkey, and Mozilla-based Flock).

    Cons

    I still have Orca browser on my old computer. Although it eventually becomes a joy to work with, at first you may be frustrated that everything operates a little differently from Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer. Takes time to adjust.

    Summary

    I believe the mafia (organized crime) is responsible for ruining everybody's ability to download Orca browser. These are the same evil people who create most of the malware and spyware that infect our computers. Before this tragic termination of everybody's ability to download Orca browser, I considered it to be one of the 6 best browsers (the other 5 are Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla-based SeaMonkey, and Mozilla-based Flock). SeaMonkey and Flock are also now suddenly difficult if not impossible to download. If you are successful at downloading SeaMonkey or Flock, it is almost certainly an outdated version of it and not the most current version. Furthermore, remember to disable the automatic update feature under "Preferences" or "Options." If you forget to disable the automatic update seeker, SeaMonkey might and Flock definitely will notify you that an update is available and then proceed to forcibly update your outdated version with the most current version which, of course, doesn't work at all. There are 3 browsers that are still very easy to download that are almost as good as the 6 browsers I mentioned earlier: The 3 browsers are Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, and Mozilla-based K-Meleon. My final comment is that no one browser is the best for all websites. Many websites will work well with only some browsers but not with others. A smart computer user should have several browser program icons (shortcuts) on his desktop in case it matters which browser you use to visit a certain website.
