Not quite. Obviously Safari on Windows isn't up to scale with Chrome or FF. Between firefox and chrome, the main differences comes down to add ons. Use a lot of Google products? Chrome is perfect for you. Like the Firefox Addon selection better than Chromes? Go for it. Internet Explorer is actually somewhat catching up to them and might become a player in the browser market soon.

Oh and Harley, don't make a building a computer guide. It won't be able to top Neweggs/other resources already out there. I think it would just be a waste of time.

The newegg/NCIX guides don't fully show what to do, plus people are dumb and cannot google.

I managed to build my first computer with only the Newegg YouTube Guides and no previous experience. Then I realized "Hey, this shit is basically me just plugging shit into ports that are made to fit the plug, why is this so glorified?".

Now, if you were to make a indepth guide on troubleshooting that might be helpful.

Also, if you are buying computer parts I'm sure you know how to use google/YouTube.

My guess is he is talking about [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_page]these[/URL] which I guess you could write about but writing a guide on documentation seems redundant to me. Then again I'm terrible with *nix and know almost next to nothing about it so there is that.
