Yeah, I remember netscape. Looking for hopefully a new version of it is how I came across Mozilla years ago. Used that until they released firefox. Never looked back on IE.... It's one of the first things that gets installed whenever I have to reinstall windows on my machines.

Ie is slow as **** on my comp for some reason. And the skins for ff are wayyyy better. But i gotta say this Firefox 3 aint impressing me much. IMO its worse than FF2

Magice 06-17-2008 11:00 PM

opera for windows safari for mac..

firefox seems like **** vs its pre 1.0 days.

the new IE tried so hard to copy firefox but failed miserably.

I heard that firefox is the fastest, most secure, most customizable web browser out there (according to their website =]) and I gave it a try.

the 'about:config' feature of firefox, which speeds it up, pretty much sold me on it. I'll never go back to IE

FF FTW!

oscaryu1 06-18-2008 09:42 AM

It is :)

Firefox FTW! I have no antivirus or firewall, and I still haven't gotten any spyware/viruses. My lappy with IE on the other hand... Yesterday I had to reformat...

You don't know that unless you have an antivirus / anti spyware :P

While we're on the topic of programs....

NOD32 v3 best antivirus
Built in fw should suffice if you have a router.

ed1380 06-18-2008 02:32 PM

no AV either and 2 years and still going strong

kibble 06-18-2008 03:58 PM

You only need antivirus when you're constantly downloading *cough* pr0n *cough*:biggrinjester:

just wanted to point that out before a firefox hater jumped on it and started blasting it. =]

yeah, my mom's computer still runs IE and that thing has new spyware weekly. my spyware searcher always turns up 0. ahh, its so nice to see that precious zero.

Magice 06-19-2008 12:36 AM
