I love this browser....

Ok...random post.

I'm a Firefox user. Been stuck using IE past few days 'cuz too lazy to download/install a build on this particular computer I'm using.

But...finally got sick and tired of all things IE...and just installed Firefox.

Ahhh....

I love it.

Anyway...apologies for total absense of sanity.

Do what? I'm an avid Firefox supporter. First downloaded version 1.0.1.

Unless you mean I should see the light and go back to IE?

Oh well....

Sorry for not being clear.

The point is this: Me likes Firefox.

"Get Firefox"

I've researched it lightly, but have never downloaded/tried Opera. I will one of these days. But...I'll prolly never get over Firefox.

yellow: gothca.

vasha: i'm not brave enuf for beta.

It drives me crazy that anyone (meaning microsoft) would ship beta. Releasing beta is one thing...but to ship it? Gah!!! Luv you M$. *rolls eyes*

Ok...anyway. I try to stay off beta. I'm not smart enuf for it.

I'm the guy that recommends people wait about 18 months after an OS release b4 buying/upgrading. Like to stay off that bleeding edge.

But...again...anyway....

Take care ya'll.

Deej...Try Opera, its a nice little browser and free, and if all else fails its a great back up.

Check out the review CNET did on FIREFOX vs IE BETA vs OPERA

Wow...looks good. I'll download it this afternoon.

Now...you know how Firefox has a quicker "snap" and download interface (than IE)? How does Opera compare?

Sorry that im not on the whole firefox band wagon. I have been using IE6 ever since it came to be. I have had 0 virus; and 0 spyware. I could run searches on my pc all day long, and it would not come up with one damn thing. So go ahead, and try to "hack me". Its not going to happen. The way I have IE set up right now is a very clean look. Its not cute like firefox tries to be.

Honestly, I will stand behind my word and say firefox is for the noob computer user.

Why do you have to be such a, oh...I shouldn't say that word.

We haven't ripped anybody for using IE6. So stop ripping us.

And, for the record, I think wut you say is a bunch of...shouldn't say that either.

Firefox, for a noob computer user? Ok...whatever you wunna' think.

Also, I will say this:

The reason Juztyn hasn't had any probs with IE is b/cuz he's an experienced PC user and is consciencous about what he does on the web. He knows what's dangerous and takes precs against that danger.

And, really, there is no difference between the security vulnerabilities of Firefox and IE. But the sheer volume of acne faced teenagers who are targeting IE can give the impression that IE is a tad less secure. And since there are a LOT more people using it, IE sec probs are reported more. Also, since M$ is a big company...ahh...you get the point.

I never said Firefox was more secure, anyway. And I sure didn't drag any IE users through the mud.

I like Firefox for many reasons...security is NOT one of them.

Mark this, as well: I've never had any security issues as a result of using IE. Never.

But I like Firefox.

And I'm not going to dis you for liking IE.

Ok...shutting up.

I've used FireFox and IE. I've had a very very limited amount of problems with IE, and to this point 1 problem with Firefox. The only thing i can say that i do not like about FF, is the fact that some pages will not view properly in FF and I have to go back to IE.

For the record FF is not just for the noob user. You are obvioulsy making a biased statement. Both browsers have their good points and bad. Some prefer FF and other IE. Whichever boat you want to float go ahead, just don't try to sink the other.

Fair enough. It does seem that most people use it for "security reasons" though. IMO I feel IE is faster (maybe not beta 7) then firefox. I actually installed FF on my grandparents computer, and it seemed to load pictures slower. I just still prefer the look and feel of IE. And yes, im sorry for calling FF users noobs, but it seems that most people dont really know browsers that well and think OMG I need firefox else ill be uber h@x3d!! Thus leading me to the noob. I might change my mind when firefox 2 comes out, but until then, im sticking with IE6.

My parents are terrible for just clicking anything on a page, thinking they are legit, etc...

Ever since i switched them to FF, it has made a world of difference. Yeah, you can attack me all you want, but their browsing habits are just the same as always, if not worse. FF is obviously is doing its job, and finally my parents are at peace. They would call me at least every month with something.

IE6 has been know for many security issues, and im pretty dang positive FF is more secure. Now to my knowledge IE7 has finally closed many holes, and finally fixed those issues with Active X controls and certificates for secure sites. Of course IE is targeted more than any other browser for the shear fact it has over 80% percent of the market.
