It took like 2 seconds - it imported all of my cookies, favourites etc. pretty user friendly.

I guess that I am converted - halleluiah.

Get some extensions too. AdBlock and Tabbrowser Preferences are two good ones! Pick up a theme, I use Noia 2.0 Extreme, but you may like another one.


Done and done. Thanks a lot ;-D

Not sure that I like the Noia skin though. :-?

Will look through the skins to find one that is more me. Thanks for the tips though.


Found one - Charamel is more my style.

The original scare with IE is it simply less secure, and being the most popular, that is not a good combination.

Exactly. It also means that once the polularity shifts, so may the security problems (so nothing against M$ in general) - but for the time being, Firefox may cause fewer headaches.

Umm, bad decision dude. Some sites dont work in Firefox, and IE was made like part of the the Windows OS (which is why it starts up so fast compared to FF), and uninstalling it can destabilize your OS...
