Browser Wars

The issue of which web browser is the "best" has caused some quite heated arguments in the last few years.  This page attempts to settle this once and for all, in the time-honoured tradition of holding a Connect-Four tournament.
Choose one of the eight boards and then click on the arrows to insert your symbol into the columns below (it will fall to the bottom of that column).  The objective is to get four of your browser symbols in a row before anyone else does.  Hit the refresh button occasionally after you've played to see if anyone with a different browser is playing at the same time, or, if not, come back a while later.
The current total scores are available as a tab-separated data file at http://stephenbrooks.org/games/browserwars/rawstats.txt.
You can also chat with other players in the Browser Wars Forum.
