    Tried Firefox yet?

    I've seen a lot of "IE problems" and "Spyware" related threads recently. In many of them, the Firefox junkies here jump in to recommend moving away from IE to Mozilla Firefox.

    I run Firefox and it is truly excellent. The plugin support is a lot better than it used to be, and tabbed browsing is fantastic!

    Anyway, how many people have tried it or run it? If you have done neither, and are still on IE, then I strongly recommend you try it out. Of course, if you have another non-IE browser that you prefer, fair enough!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Firefox or Opera all the way. Personally I prefer Firefox but simply can't understand the people who still use IE

    I use it as a seconday browser, I dont love it, but I certainly dont hate it either. In Linux I prefer Konqueror, in windows I prefer IE.

    Brilliant. Need I say more.

    Had enough of having IE hijacked. I'd never go back to IE again (except for windowsupdate.com grrr bloody MS)

    Using at this moment in time and loving it.

    Only problem is that some sites have been coded by one lazy ass developer and don't always work in FireFox. Ordering forms being the prime suspect.

    Using it, love it. The tabbed broswing is a nice touch, stops XP from making a group of IE's (Coz i really hate it when it does that) and as of yet, has not had a problem! Also, the search engine toolbar is nice. Dont need to run over to google to search.

    Firefox owns It doesnt look too disimilar to IE but the menus are far nice to use, im not going back to IE any way.

    P.S It uses tabbed browseing so u dont get lots of internet windows taking up your task bar like IE does. Brilliant feature.

    Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.
