AOL switched their browser from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome. I made sure NOT to make it my home page, and to only have it affect my mail. Thank goodness I did, because when I upgraded I had no idea WHICH browser it was switching to. Only once I upgraded did I find out.
Opening e-mails is a pain now. I click on the “next” button, but if the e-mail has any links, I don’t get the “enable links” button unless I close the e-mail and re-open it. How is that better?
AOL said it’s faster. I open a news article and it locks everything up. How it that better?
I’m not putting the blame on my computer. With AOL 9.6, I may have had some problems, but nothing compared to what I’m getting now. This only reinforces my hatred for Chrome. And yes, I sent AOL feedback. We’ll see if they do anything.
As for Yahoo... Yes, they upgraded. For the most part I don’t have an issue. I’m not there a whole heck of a lot. The problem I have with them is through their Groups and getting messages through e-mails. Most of my groups are set to immediate e-mail. Ha! I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen replies to e-mails come through before the original e-mail. Heck, even an e-mail I sent to a group last week has yet to show in my own e-mail. Kind of wonder when I’ll finally see it.
I did go to the site to offer my feedback, but I think they’re getting the message. LOTS of people are complaining - and I’m able to see the complaints.
Sometimes I wonder if these companies actually TEST their new software before spreading it out to the masses.
I’ll admit it, I hate change (especially when I think it’s unnecessary). It’s one of the reasons I hope I never have to lose
Vista. The stuff that replaced it has not interested me
in the least (and I’ve used Windows 7 and seen enough of Windows 8 to not even
want to bother). Don’t even get me started on upgrading Word 2003. Does that
make me a dinosaur? **ROAR**
So how do you feel about change? Has Yahoo or AOL made you crazy yet? Or do you use another browser/software that drives you just as batty?
Here’s hoping it’s not driving you too batty not to enjoy the upcoming weekend. Happy Friday!
