I've been using Firefox for about 6 months, and I just clicked on IE by accident today and was BAFFLED by how spamtastic it's become even in that short span of time.

I like my Safari, but everyone thinks it's a browser for kids. I think they get it mixed up with Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego.

firefox was great for about a day, untill i realized that you had to download about 3 plugins for everything single page you went to along with it not being very compatable with microsoft products and websites.

Amen. I liked it for the pop up blocking. Now IE is just as good.

Why would you want to look at Microsoft websites anyway?

Sure, there's a few pulg-ins to download at first, but you've only gotta download each of them once. Firefox & Safari > IE

what i love is how firefox blocks popups so well. I dont know how they do it but it works really well! I got the google popup blocker with IE and i still got many popups and it blocked things i did not want, this rarely happens with firefox

I'm digging firefox which is installed here at work, but with it some of my online bill-pays can't go through. That's the only issue I've found with it so far.

that's because sites are ie inclined and aren't properly coded, that's not firefox's fault. That's a ****ty web host.

Like you don't have to patch IE constantly. The Firefox themes and extensions practically update themselves.

Keep telling yourself that. I have the ability with Firefox to completely eliminate ads and images that I don't want from appearing on webpages.
Firefox gives you so much more control over your internet experience

You are aware that they released a new version of Firefox recently right? Download Firefox 1.0.4

Pretty funny. I like firefox, but I don't like it when I try to go back when I'm on bikeforums after I edited. It's pretty rough.

Other than that one thing, it's beautiful.

Nope, i had no idea. I just downloaded it and all though, i dont notice any differences. Is it just misc. bug fixes and whatnot?
