Apparently a study shows that if you use Firefox/Chrome you are a more loyal employee and stay at a job longer. I wonder why?
I switched from Chrome to Firefox last week in an effort to avoid Google collecting any more personal information about me. It is ok. I am not crazy about Safari. It seems to have problems with sites that have movies/media. Too often Firefox acts sluggish as well, but we are talking slightly slower than Chrome which is fine.
I haven’t seriously used IE for years. It was only used to download other browsers. I wonder if that is why they decided to revamp it? Some companies had to change the name of their cars because the name had a negative connotation. For example Chrysler Sebring. That car was bought for fleets, and was a terrible car in every respect. They made some changes and called it the 200 and it was suddenly a winner.
What else is interesting about this is that it was done for a call center retention efforts? Isn’t this so typical trying to find an easy solution to an obvious one? I had a gf once who worked in a call center and I call tell you that the job is the worst. You aren’t treated respectfully, the pay is low, and there is little or no chance for advancement. It is no doubt that 45% of call center workers move on. There isn’t any other option they are given. If hiring an employee is so expensive, then that seems like an easy justification to pay more and try to keep the best. Isn’t this what a manager is supposed to do?
I have stopped using Firefox and using Opera now. Opera blocks advertisements which makes surfing the web safer and faster. I don’t support Google or use any of their products anymore. Opera has been able to do everything that Chrome/Firefox did for me.
