I know a lot of you guys use FireFox on here. I've never used it because I've always been happy with IE but I just downloaded the new IE and it is ****ing horrible so I was wondering if you guys could give me some info as to whether FireFox is worth downloading and what not?

Mucho gracis!

I downloaded Firefox through Mozilla....It works pretty good....sometimes it is a little faster than IE, but most of the time it is about the same.

I've used Firefox for 3 years. The only reason I even have IE installed on my machine is for website testing purposes...

To be honest, in my opinion, the new IE is not too bad. It's WAY better then the old one/ That said, nothing is better then Firefox.

Love it - becomes even better when you can add your choice of extensions onto it.

the new IE is pretty much stealing a lot of ideas from firefox. personally i think the new IE is far better than the old one. FAR better. but firefox is even better. :D

i gotta say though, these nifty username colorizations and stuff are great, and you can't see them in firefox.

Bruzer

eh a small name color difference isn't worth the pain of popups and viruses i constantly got with internet explorer where as firefox i don't get any problems at all.

:refuse: maybe for you, but i paid like 400 bucks for the glow.

the tricks actually slowed my firefox down, is it possible these tricks dont work well with the mac version?

nevermind, i had one of those add ons installed thats supposed to up firefox speed and i think it was conflicting with these settings, i disabled the add on and now its blazing, thanks for the tip

with the new vBucks you can buy colored fonts and usertitles and add glows. my name is orange with a blue glow, it's awesome. :D

FF rules... i keep IE for work, b/c i work from he home and the interface ihave to use is optimized for IE, and locks up on any other browser for some reason.

Use Avant Browser, its way better than IE or FF (its free also)

FF sucks btw.

Why exactly does it suck? I haven't had a single problem with it. Most sites now support it and its third most popular browser last I checked.

Avant is faster, more organized, and all around better than FF or IE. I dont know what your talking about or what version you have tried.

first of all, avant is basically from the same engine as IE, so the differences are mostly visual. it has tabs like IE and FF, and looks and feels a LOT like Opera. from what i've seen, it's basically just IE + Opera in one. FF is better than both. :D

i dont know how it's more "organized" since organization is basically how the user makes it. FF has so many more extensions and limitless customizability. clearly better than avant or IE or whatever.

i think some people dont mind IE and would like some changes and others have always hated IE and when they found FF it was like finding a long lost lover :lol:. im in the second category

Im neither....

I've always hated IE, then I found firefox and didnt like it either.

Better than IE? Yes.

Amazing? No.

also, im not sure how you can claim to have always hated IE, yet your favorite browser is based on it or at least a hybrid of it

Firefox also seems more secure because a lot of spyware and garbage attaches itself to IE. Just download it for free man and try it out. You can always use both! I am definitely a Firefox fan though!

For the new IE I know if you are doing things like web design it can be a bit of a pain in the butt. But if your just surfing it is alright. I prefer FF, it is more secure and supposed to be less likely to pick up spyware,viruses etc. At least thats the word around the computer science building. All I know.
