Use IE? ;-7

:-b

I don't use Firefox, so best I can do is give this a bump for you. ;-)


OUCH!!! Madison, you need to get on the wagon... or off the wagon. Or, whatever the bad one is, because the wagon is microsoft and IE blows!!!

Viva Firefox and tabbed browsing!

Just think of more often you can post on FBC when you can have all your threads open in one window.


Lol. :-b

I'm all good with IE here. Not a matter of backing Microsoft, just with all the bugs I read about with Firefox, they really should change the name to Firefly. Lol. :-D

i've been using firefox on two sepperate os' (xp home and 2000 pro) since the original beta and i've never had any problems or bugs. some things are quirky and work better in ie but as far as security goes ie does not compare(although it is getting slightly better). tabbed browsing is the single greatest thing ever invented for a browser. i haven't used ie since i switched over for anything other than updates.
don't miss it one bit.

Madison, do we need to have an intervention?

Because you NEED to start using Firefox (or firefly, or whatever you want to call it... they don't care).

I'm with Madison. Other than tabbed browsing which is in the next installment of IE (the new IE is sweet btw), IE is more stable and functional on every front than Firefox or Opera. Unless you have strong desire to stick it to the man IE is just fine. :-D

I know it seems as if I work for Mozilla, but I'm going to have to disagree.

One of the biggest features of Firefox that makes it better is security. It's quite simple to realize that since IE is the standard for internet browsers, almost all websites that feature malicious code or worms will design their attacks for flaws in the IE structure. Although it's possible to stay ahead of that trend by constantly updating IE or having excellent anti-virus software installed, you can rest easy knowing that Firefox is secure on its own.

It's popup blocker is also superior to IE's and it's interface is constantly being updated to accomodate more and more IE-only websites.

The find feature is also amazing. I use it quite extensively, and in IE where a box pops up and you can only search for one instance of a word at a time, in Firefox, there is a toolbar at the bottom of the window that you can use to search AND highlight multiple words in a document. This comes in handy at times for me while searching through FBC!

Extentions are the coolest thing to ever hit a web browser, something IE doesn't support. Since Firefox is open source, it is open to modifications from people all over the internet. The Firefox website includes and extensive list of extensions that enhance the functionality and the usefulness of the browser.

It is also skinnable, unlike IE.

RSS feeds (it's complicated, so I won't get into here) are also supported unconditionally in Firefox.

So, the new IE 7 is supposed to closely resemble Firefox... but what puts firefox over the top for me are the extentions. It's so customizable, you'll wonder why you ever used IE to begin with. Just give it a chance. It's completely free and easy to uninstall if you don't like it.

You know, you're absolutely right.

I just performed a little speed test on Apple.com with IE and Firefox, and IE loaded it almost twice as fast.

I would think Apple would cater more to the opensource crowd than the IE crowd, but then again, maybe it's designed for Safari.
