    Link: Switch to Firefox - If you`re still using Internet Explorer, find out why you shouldn`t be.

    i`m happy using IE in conjunction with the Pop-Up Stopper software (the free edition because i`m cheap like that).

    I have already, and it whoops the ass of IE. I haven`t seen a pop up for over a year, since I got it. Also, it runs faster on my computer, and hasn`t ever frozen either. Firefox kicks ass. Better interface, security, options and even has a built in search engine.

    You all should switch. Firefox is amazing. Internet Explorer is the most messed up thing that has ever happened to my computer.

    omega_ma: Avant Browser is an extension of IE. It has the same CRAP security with a frillier exterior.

    Yeah, I used to use it, and I practically worshipped it, but now I use Opera. I`d use Firefox (i think I have it downloaded, not sure) but I really like the tabbed windows of Opera.

    What makes the tabbed windows of Opera better than the tabbed windows of Firefox? Plus, I added some cool tab-related extensions to Firefox which I doubt are available in Opera.

    ^ I downloaded firefox from the site you gave me and the windows aren`t tabbing? Do I have to change some sort of setting?

    Oh, I found out how the tabs are different. In Firefox, there is a difference between a tab and a window. ctrl+N opens up a new window, (a new instance of firefox), and crtl+T opens up a new tab. In Opera, ctrl+N opens up a new (blank) tab, and ctrl+shift+N opens up a duplicate of the page you have open already, in a tab.

    Anyway I think i`ll leave this board now... I think I`m boring people

    Firefox is great. Much better than IE.....

    At the moment, my Firefox is called Lightningpanda.

    I have Mozilla, but I guess Mozilla Firefox is something different? I don`t quite understand.

    Anything that claims to be light years ahead is a crock.

    If it were it would be in the future and un accessible.

    I`m never switching. I find all browsers pretty much the same, I don`t really care which one I use.

    If this computer came with Firefox or Mozilla or whatever, I wouldn`t switch it to IE, though.
