Dual browsers for 4+ teams on Yahoo

Postby AdvRider » Wed Feb 22, 2006 2:15 pm

So a couple of years ago I played eight teams on Yahoo. Yahoo limits you to four teams per Yahoo ID. So I used two Yahoo IDs, four teams per ID.

The hassle was having to log in and log out of each ID to manage the sets of teams. I was using Internet Explorer, and you couldn’t be logged into Yahoo with two IDs from the same browser. It was a pain in the arse.

DOH! Now I figure out that you CAN be logged in simultaneously with two separate Yahoo IDs if you use separate browsers, for instance, IE and Mozilla. So this year I’ll do six teams without all the log-in/log-out hassle.

Sure a lot of you guys know this; passing along in case someone’s in the same position and is slow on the draw as I am … 8-o

I don't see that its a big deal to have 2 user IDs. Done it for years in baseball & football. To each his own

And with the toolbar add-in, you can easily switch back and forth between any number of Yahoo id logins and have it remember the passowrds too. Besdies, 4 Yahoo league is just about enough. If you play for money, you shoul dnot be using Yahoo imo. Spend the 11-13 bucks and go to CBS Commissioner.

You could use Opera, Maxthon, Firefox, and IE all at once! Possibly with Firefox you could open them in different tabs

Why anyone uses a browser not named IE on the PC is beyond me.

Why anyone uses a MAC is also beyond me, but that is another issue.

IE crashes more, is slower, has no tabs, supports evil microsoft, has holes in its security, takes up more memory

IE is as stable as they come and I have never seen it crash any more than any other Windows OS product. Most so called crashes are the result of lousy web code.

Slower? Maybe. Have not seen any studies, but if you are talking about milliseconds to display differentials, it is silly. Download capabilites are a fucntion of the Web servers. Repaint and display functionality is more than satisfcatory in IE.

Tabs?...it is Windows, I do not need tabs and frankly do not like or want them.

Evil MS?...MS rules the PC...IE is part of the OS and is integrated into it. If that is the basis for your objection you may as well use Linux or go to a MAC. The people who run XP, Office, etc and then use Firefox to "stick it to" MS are like the people that go to the all you can eat buffet, stuff themselves and have a diet cola.

Security...they all have security holes. MS is the biggest target. It also spends the most time and effort plugging the holes as fast as they are detected. When and if the others got big enough to warrant hacker attacks, you would likely see that they are just as vulnerable.

Takes up more memory...probably. Most PCs come with a Gig+ these days...an extra few MBs used by IE is not going to mean much.

I bought a Mac after I destroyed my PC with a baseball bat. I hate windows and internet explorer.
