Cartoons often have pretty messed up episode orders, especially older ones (though there are still a few even nowadays that have ordering problems). When you start binge-watching a completed cartoon, which order do you prefer to watch episodes in? Please answer in the poll, but if you have some other kind of order you watch episodes in, feel free to select "Other" and voice it in a reply. Also, I've never done this sort of thing before, so I'm not sure if I can do this text and the poll all in one post, but it's worth a shot. If there's no poll, just reply, I guess.
I myself am a die-hard "Official Wikipedia Order" kind of person. I find that I avoid continuity errors that way. (If any such continuity exists in the first place, that is.) It also makes sure I see episodes that I might otherwise miss for some reason.
So I noticed there was another thread going around - Dubbed vs Subbed. So this is a more specific question directed at you those who like to watch their anime with subtitles! Do you prefer Soft Subs or Hard Subs?
The difference being Soft Subs are basically layed over the top of the video. You can turn if on or off, and if you have the right programs you can even edit them. Another good thing is that the video is left untouched, so if there are any errors in the translations that can easily be worked out. - down side, since they're not part of the video they tend to be more demanding from your computer and video player. Also If you have the right program you can edit the size/colour.
Hard Subs on the other hand are embed into the actual video. You can't change them, you can't edit them, you can't take them off. This means that if there is an error in the translation, or a typo, that's staying on the video for good. And because they're embed into the actual video, they don't take much more room than the raw would.
Most Subbers tend to hard sub the OP/ED for the cool effects, and then release a Creditless / subtitless OP/ED. This includes some Soft-Subbers too, because there are times wehere the OP/EDs are Hard Subbed even if the rest is Soft.
I personally prefer Hard Subs if they're done well, but I don't blog or anything so I don't really need to turn the subs off, haha. Since becoming enlightened, I don't really mind either way.
Anyway - What do you prefer, Soft Subs or Hard Subs?
What is your favorite web browser, and which do you believe is the best of the best?
I've only used Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Internet Explorer is very buggy. It doesn't display correctly alot of the time as it was designed basically to make n00b coders incorrectly coded sites display fine, therefore alot of correctly coded sites are altered. Internet Explorer is also the least secure web browser and is the biggest target for ad ware and spy ware.
On the other hand Fire Fox is one of the #1 recommended browsers by many people, as well as it has won several awards for best browser. Most webmasters use it, and recommend it over all others, and it has alot of helpful plug ins. However at first Firefox can be a bit slow and not run very well, but you can fix that by going into the configurations and changing a couple things. Or at least it was that way on earlier versions.
So I believe Fire Fox is the best.
