Looking outside keeps me updated on the weather. A little Mail icon pops up on my task bar when I have mail. And if I want to waste time, I just come to the Cafe. :-D

Suck on that, Firefox! :-b


Firefox can play music straight from its browser and has customizable skis to make you feel all warm inside

I don't ever play music straight from my computer, so why do I need that?

I personally have never used Firefox, but I'm willing to try it out.

Just wondering though, what's so great about Firefox that makes it better than IE? Also, I don't have that much memory on my computer, will installing this slow it down a lot?

Thanks.. ;-D

Firefox is less of a memory hog

It is customizable.

Has Tabs

Its constantly updated.

What's customizable? What kind of additions? Constantly updated in what way?

Just asking all of this because I already know you probably know it, and I'd rather not go look it up. :-b

So I'm guessing it wouldnt slow my computer down too much?

I think it would be faster then IE for your computer.

You can add in news feeds, Different skins, a media player right in the browser. You have spellcheck, weather updates. Everything you can think of.

Its updated more with features and security.

Its a small download just give it a try and if you don't like it uninstall it.

Look up firefox extensions and plugins after you download

I downloaded Firefox and haven't like it so far. It's been A LOT!!! slower than IE, and half the time an error will come up and won't load the page. The only reason I really like it is because of the tabs. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or is Firefox just not for my computer?

Btw, anyone know if it's possible to have tabs for IE?

The new IE7 has tabs; there will never be a browser again without them and Firefox had them years ago. I'm not sure why it's slower, but if it is, IE7 will likely be too slow as well. For me, and I use both at work, they're almost identical as far as speed, but firefox typically loads pictures faster.

I think you can get tabs in IE6 with the WindowsLive toolbar.

Like a good share of folks around here, I'm a Firefox junkie. 2.0 is great. ;-D
