Thread: Firefox vs. Internet Explorer

    Default Firefox vs. Internet Explorer

    I am now seeing the advertisements at the tops of the GM pages for firefox. It seems Firefox is gaining a lot of ground every where on the web. So I was wondering how many are using it. I have been using it for more than a year now and love Firefox. I barely know how to operate IE anymore. Tabbed browsing is the greatest. There is a ton of extensions for it. I also got the Stumble Upon tool bar through Firefox. It is a great way to waste hours of your life surfing. But I find some really cool stuff with it.
    Here are some links for some amazing artists I found using Stumble Upon.

    So how many Firefox fans here?

    I've been using Mozilla for maybe 3 years now. Yes, I love Firefox, and avoid IE if I can possibly do so.

    I (heart) Firefox I only ever use IE now if there's a website I need to go to that doesnt support FF (and that doesnt happen often).

    I use Firefox too. It works great for me. Much better than IE.
    I use Thunderbird for my email.

    I use Safari, being on OS X... but the creator of firefox was tapped by Apple to develop Safari, so its related, and Safari's so much nicer than IE - like a Rolls Royce is so much nicer than anything else I've ever ridden in. I don't use IE ever. If there happens to be a web site thats not compatible with Safari... then they don't get my business. I think I've only ever run across one.

    I'm also on OSX, but I use firefix, safari, opera, camino, omniweb, and occaisionally icab. All depends on my mood! On my win2k box at work I use firefox and opera where possible, not that I do any of this from there!

    I use OSX and firefox! Just as a point of interest - or not - Internet Exploder...hmmm I mean Explorer uses Active X and so do many of the pop-ups and spywares. By not using IE you are protecting your machine

    Firefly all the way! We have installed firefox on all wrokstations where I work, and altered our internet usage policy. Using IE is a violation of our usage policy now.

    I use Firefox all the way. It rocks!

    It's unbelievable to me that there are still some companies with a web presence that do not accomodate Firefox for SSL sessions. How screwed up is that?

    Only one thing to do .. . Road Trip!

    Absolutely. Firefox does not have anywhere near the security problems that IE has. I have installed Firefox on all of my friends PCs. It is preventative maintenance as far as I am concerned. I get a lot less calls nowadays.

    This posting got composed using exactly 0 % Microsoft. Not only don't I touch the M$ IE unless I abso-****ing-lutely have to, I have the audacity to run my machines on Linux whenever possible. I do have M$ installed (triple boot... SuSE 9.2, Lose XP, Lose 9, but only use it for those few applications that aren't available in a comparable form for linux. This means mostly games of course

    (Compare that to my workplace... I earn my bucks in the Enterprise Helpdesk of an international bank where Unix/Linux is only used on some exotic database servers. Aaaah, the horrors...)
