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!

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??

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.)

I just discovered this series yesterday and read my way backwards. I wish they were a little nicer to each other, but I love it regardless :)

Thankfully, after reading more, I have a better idea of their relationship and they don't seem to be purposefully hurtful so that helps. Not that you probably care what I think with the other 700 comments you have, but I wanted to you to know I like this series :D

ParallaxMLP Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012
Of course I care what you think - thanks for the feedback! :D I read every comment.

I was talking to another who had the same feedback earlier, and actually came up with a better explanation than my own. He said it was quite like the characters in the video series Red Vs Blue - where they would take jabs at each other relentlessly but would really come together when it mattered most. :)

Actually, hang on, found it, here is that comment thread: [link]

I know it's based on MLP, but this series definitely won't be cushy-cushy friendly-happy-time like most are expecting. Still, like you said, the characters and their bond to each other will become more apparent as time goes on. These early comics just establish who they are, some elements of the world etc, I hope to bring some actual story into the situation which will give rise to opportunities for the characters to shine. :D

That worries me. I have a fear of death, and since most fanfics or comics have that in them, I don't dare to read.

i dont like people picking on IE sure its not great NOW in comparrison to all the other ones that unlike Microsoft have nothing else better to do, but back in the day IE was the MOTHERGOD OF KNOWLEDGE when it came to that stuff, yes I know chrome is much better and doesnt wig out over little things but its still got the best private browsing features of the lot, and thus it will always have a place on my taskbar
