That's truer today than it has been for the last 30 years. The last four years have thinned the herd. Consumers who really didn't have the staying power, the stability and ability to make steady payments even in difficult times, have lost their homes and their motorhomes. Some lenders have exited the business too. Healthy lenders, including finance companies, banks and credit unions, returned to the market as soon as it stabilized.

Boy am I behind the times

A friend of mine told me yesterday that he thought Google's Chrome web browser was the most popular in the world. I didn't believe him. I was convinced that Microsoft's Internet Explorer was still No. 1. After all, that's the one I have used almost exclusively since 1995 -- cursing at it throughout the day for its multiple limitations and ability to lock up on certain websites.

Today, I checked several web resources and was stunned to discover that not only has Internet Explorer lost its perch on top of the browser battles, it is solidly in third place and plummeting like a meteor.
