If you are of a certain age there is a good chance that Internet Explorer was your first web browser. While it will still work, it has now been officially abandoned by Microsoft and will become less secure in time and put your computer at risk of infections. For his personal matters R uses its replacement Microsoft Edge. For joint things we use Firefox and for my personal matters I use Chrome. This saves us having to log in and out with different identities in one browser. While in the 90s I used IE for a time, I tried Opera which I didn't like as it took over the computer and I then moved on to Netscape, which was quite good for its time. But now I really like Chrome.
Chrome is not perfect though, or maybe website designers are at fault. Do you remember back a couple of weeks ago I disputed a membership charge with the online retailer Kogan? $12 per month membership for free delivery when I might buy something there once a year did not make sense and I would not have agreed to it. Via the Kogan website I lodged a request for a charge back to my credit card and I received a pro forma response to my complaint. Three days later I logged on to the website and switched off that it was a recurring charge.
Ten days later, still no response or charge back to my credit card. Right, I will make it a disputed transaction with my bank. Naturally I used Chrome but it would not work after a certain point. I tried a second time still to no avail.
I tried with Firefox and it lodged. Normally a disputed transaction takes time, like weeks, to investigate by a bank, but within seconds I received an sms that the disputed transaction had been accepted and my credit card would be credited with the $11.99. That really tells you how dodgy the charge was and how many people must have been stung and complained.
Oh, and I have been switched to the new Blogger. I hope they have fixed the bugs.
