sadly......after my computer had to be formatted becuase of spyware i was instructed to ditch IE and go for firefox becuase there arent nearly as many spyware/virus's that are compatable with firefox. I still have to use IE to check my hotmail though becuase firefox doesnt work with anything MSN.

You're right, it won't. I used to be a mozilla user and it took a while for firefox to grow on me because of that.Originally Posted by khuon
Ive had great luck with firefox. I Have not gotten a single popup yet
i dont need it, in my view only reason people get it is because there comp is filled with spy ware and internet explorer doesnt work. My comp is not messed up anymore thus allowing me to use internet explorer with no problems...
I use it.
It's faster than IE on my computer for some reason...
Firefox. Tabbed browsing and NOT IE.
"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ...'holy *****...what a ride!'"
its faster on my comp as well. That was the first thing i noticed about it when i used it
Opera. It's addictive, you get used to the features and firefox just sucks in comparison. I'd rather a browser with a better interface and features than one that's compatible with one website opera isn't.
Yes, i've said this before, and i'll say it again.Originally Posted by MadMan2k
Firefox is for newb poseurs. Pains me to see legions of IE switchers proclaiming Firefox OMG!~!@11ONE so 1337!!
IE attracted so many viruses and crap I had to replace my computer. No matter how much I spent on virus protection, the **** kept coming through to my computer over my high speed connection via IE. I bought a sweet new Compaq (flame as much as you want, I love this computer) and have only opened IE once to download Mozilla Firefox. So what if it looks and feels like IE, it always works and doesn't crash the entire OS. Firefox even has features IE doesn't that comes in very handy.(see my reference to the translation panel in the Advocacy and Safty Forum). It even monitors the weather for me. Did I mention an iron wall pop-up blocker?
Now Microsoft is attempting to redo IE to compete with the other browsers out there. MS's market share of browsers dropped below 90% last quater!
Bikes use brakes to stop.
If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
All browsers are for newb poseurs.
I have uploaded my consciousness and interface by mind control...

I'm in with Foxfire and Thunderbird, love them both.
Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas
I'm not, but it sounds like I should be!
Firefox indeed. Very few (none, actually) problems. I like the interface a lot more.
IE is slow and chrashes a lot even withotu spyware. plus you cna't really customise it.Originally Posted by hi565
I ahve all kinds of cool things going with firefox. like I sjut hughlit text and it is copied. I had addon's that check for fake or spoofed webpages. i can have 10 tabs open and only one copy of the browser.
if your happy with primitive IE keep it. but for me it has been history since it came out almost.
No I don't use it. I don't customize (who has time), it doesn't crash (I find it faster to, I have no love for firefox) and my pc doesn't get infected (not sure, 15 years using the internet (pre-html) and 10years on bbs's and I don't have an 1/8th of the problems anyone else does, must have better quality porn sources ) . I don't care about multiple windows or mouse movement anything. I like IE and always have. Its not like I browse the internet anyways. I visit 10 sites, all of them work. Its all I need.
I have opera and firefox loaded strictly for web development purposes.
sure your name is not bill gates? (G) I have nto had problems with viruses and such. but popups suck and IE is too limited for me. to primitive and too unsafe. how many patches for security in a few years??Originally Posted by Maelstrom
I freaking wish it was. I would be rich.
No it isn't. I don't have popup problems, and the odd time it has occured takes very little time to fix. Its a browser, not my idea of "advanced" anyways. Heck I still interface with qnix on a daily basis, IE seems like the cats meow
Eh, security updates, big deal. Its all about ratios. 1 user trys to hack mac, 10 *nix, 1,000,000 windows. There are bound to be issues (ratio is heavily skewed but gets across my point) with windows.
