Im a mafioso for the Mozilla family.

our main competing family right now is the Microsoft family, as we have forged a truce between us and the Macintosh organization.

finally,much to my shock and horror,and after screaming at the top of my lungs to get the other techies into the room,we found a tighly packed compressed package file containing the last 250 or so keystrokes I had input into an email earlier. We also discovered what appeared to be numerical plot point coordinates to the cursor based on a four quadrant X-Y chart (0,0 being the center)followed by a time signature. Here's what some of it looked like:.....Sincerely%] +|+|+|+|+|+|+You*%'%*re%Friend*%,%*+|+|+|+|+|+|+|+|+|]] MYNAME%HERE%*.*%#;:-----}[-439,011]/[-759,870]\\|[33:47.49582]
.....
So, ya'll still wanna use Internet Explorer? I think not. For those still loyal to IE, try cliking on a popup ad by accident once, then see how deep into spyware city you get. Unfortunately, I see the dame fate for Firefox in the long run, cuz browser developers got bills to pay, and who better to pay the bills than the internets largest advertising firm? Peace out yall.

and impliment third party cookies and applications with or without your knowledge or approval(check your end user agreement on IE which is imbedded in the program code and not written as a viewable text.One interesting line state "therein by using this program you are agreeing to the terms here in set in this end user agreement",which,in the code, was written as %9/// '....#thereinbyusing--thisprogramyouare*agreeingtotheterms; hereinsetinthisenduseragreement+val....').With newer versions of IE,these security holes got bigger and easier to infect.I have several computers(someold and new)running IE 3-5.version 5 corrupted so horribly that it was unrecoverable. IE 3 still runs without a hitch.The worst with IE 4 (or its equivalent,theres no exact number)is the occasional popup every ten minutes or so.For some strange reason,after analyzing the code structure of IE5,the program's size tripled.Discovered in the actual program code(not extensions or linked .dll files)were spyware c

Hello all.Some Info about IE:TimeWarner,owner and proprieter of much of the advertising firms on the internet,in cooperation with AOL(their daughter internet company)works in conjunction with IE developers to create these 'security holes'.That's why IE is chock full of adware and spyware material,it's intentionally made defenseless to support the advertising(currently a major[though majorly annoying] internet industry).AOL has been running ads claiming to defend against spyware when in fact their parent company(TimeWarner)funds and develops those programs and secretly implements them into the AOL browser as well as the AOL Instant Messenger (a 'virus' [really a beta tracking program] hit AIM users last year, in which the 'virus' sends a message to one of your friends saying 'Hey, look at this link:www.....', which, after some research, routes to a download php from an AOL server hub.This virus is still around and caught my sibling one day.)In default,IE is set to automatically install-

Uh, Internet Explorer has had tabs for a while...if you have the updates...that's what I'm using now, and I have a number of pages that just don't open in firefox. Interesting video, but all these people don't know IE has tabs too?! Look at the top of my screen shot below the address bar....I do believe those are tabs.

One major problem I have with Firefox is that on most websites, if you scroll down and hit a link, then press the back button, you are sent back to the TOP of the previous page!!! L4M3!!!11
I haven't run into this problem on IE before!! For this very reason firefox is not on my hard drive at the present time.

I use firefox for many very good reasons.
First I have had to reformat my computer twice because IE let so much spyware through it became unuseable.
Firefox has tabbed browsing. And it has extensions for added functionality, I can do way more with firefox thanks to extensions.
I don't know which is faster but I don't really give a damn if ones half a second faster than the other.

Yeah yeah, Apples Rock! I use Safari too, although when I had to use a Windoze machine for work, I used Firefox exclusively.

I by no means surf the internet my entire life, but when I do, I want a fast, easy, program to help me.

Firefox is that program.

You may call it the love of privacy or the love of having a computer without spyware/adware/malware...

I used to be a IE guy. Then I became a Netscape Navigator guy. Then Netscape was starting to suck and IE made some improvements, so I used that for a few years again. Then I found Firefox after a friend told me about the hundreds of security holes in IE might be what's causing all the problems with my computer...

I stopped using IE and installed Firefox and did a virus scan. I immediately stopped seeing popups, unless I wanted them, and the trojans I deleted where gone. I made the mistake of using IE about 2 months later and all the spyware trojans came back.

IE sucks and you fanboys just don't realize it because you are too brainwashed by the mainstream to try anything different.

The point that IE 7 has tabbed browsing should tell you something. Microsoft waits for other companies to set trends and copies them, IE Apple Windows = Microsoft Windows, Apple iPod design = Xbox 360, Firefox tabbed browsing = IE 7

IE 7 will still have holes so... no thanks

Firefox all the way baby. However, with the new popularity, it will become less secure very fast.

Am I the only one who was annoyed by the music in that video ... a few of you said that you use a specific page in IE ... get IETAB (http://ietab.mozdev.org/) it will view a page in a IE shell in firefox ... quite seamless

IE7 still wont be skinnable, it still wont have plugin support, and it will still be a MS product, so FF wins.
