My Little Websurfers - Part 1 by ParallaxMLP My Little Websurfers - Part 1 by ParallaxMLP
Next:


You know that stage where you just don't care any more? Totally brushing that stage as I submit this now. Took WAY too long to finish due to my epic procrastination skills. It's probably rammed with errors like most of my stuff as well, so have fun with that!

This is my first foray into this new series. Where exactly are they? Why does the place it look the way it does? How are they even there in the first place? These and a whole swathe of other important questions remain unanswered right now.

I know, it's a slow start, but hopefully the characters, their relationships, and the fanon describing this bizarre Internet world will become apparent over time. (If you can't cope without knowing more right now, send me a note with any questions and I'll give you some in-depth explanation…)

I think these guys have a lot of potential and could get up to some very interesting shenanigans. The upcoming comics are planned out and the artwork underway… looking forward to drawing some of those, heheh.

As before, big thanks to :iconnoreasontohope:, :iconhe4rtofcourage:, and :iconmcsadat: for their designs of Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer respectively!

Hilarious :).

I'm not familiar with anything other than Kindle here, but you've given them genuinely interesting personalities :D
Good work.

I do wonder if there are male web browsers out there though...
I guess it you want the Mane 5 makes sense to have mares though.

I like Maxthon, but it's browser share is tiny in comparison! I can barely keep up with drawing the "mane 5" here :D

Not ruling anything out, though. Haven't settled on a design for Maxthon yet; at the moment there are only sketches.

The dialogue confuses me. Is the beginning purely speculative? The whole comic seems very surreal.

I loved it...

But it was a little hard to ofllow whow as saying what. could you add like a pointer to the speech bubbles for the next one?
Reply
:iconparallaxmlp:
ParallaxMLP Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013
Yeah I got a lot of feedback on that, the speech bubbles are colour coded to each character but it's still a little unclear as the characters have so many colours.. also sometimes they're speaking when they're not "in-frame"! 

The third and fourth comics had pointers added (follow the links in the description for the next comics) so should be easier to read :) thanks for looking!

no reference to firefox's massive memory consumption?
awwwww..... :(
Reply
:iconssokolow:
ssokolow Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013
Modern Firefox actually consumes less memory per tab than equivalent multi-process browsers like Chrome since some data has to be duplicated every time you spin up a new renderer.

The problem is that, because it's all running in one process, it's hard to diagnose memory problems caused by crappy addons.

They're working on a project called electrolysis (e10s for short) which will split things up into something more like Chrome but it's slow going because they have limited manpower and don't have the deep pockets that allowed Google and Microsoft to remedy the problem.

I like it so far, but the names are throwing me off. They just seem... wrong... although Chromia's name is perfect.
Reply
:iconssokolow:
ssokolow Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013
Agreed. It took me forever to figure out that "Kindle" was supposed to be Firefox because I kept trying to find a pony representing an Amazon eReader.

It'd be better to use a fire-related noun like Ember rather than a verb or a Firefox-related name like Aurora. (The name for "more beta than beta" Firefox versions that are still stable enough for day-to-day use.)

The only name that made any sense was Chromia. In my opinion the rest all need to be renamed.

Awesome! A comic about Internet ponies :D
I only know Safari, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox. But who's the pony with the red mane??
Reply
:iconssokolow:
ssokolow Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013
The Pony with the red mane is Opera. It's noteworthy despite its small desktop market share because Opera Mobile and Opera Mini have a big slice of the mobile market and, until recently (Opera 12 and below), it had its own rendering engine rather than just being an alternative UI for someone else's engine. (Opera 15 switched to using Chrome's engine, called Blink.)

Opera. It started in 1994, but became popular recently. (Around 2009-2010, I think.)
