Firefox, of course! I only use IE to ftp things to my site, and necessary Windows things. :whistling: Otherwise, I never open it.

If IE had skins, tabs proper built in ad blocking that worked and didnt have a million one installable toolbars packaged with every piece of software under the sun, and some good extensions support and extensions like FF i mught use it. But it doesnt, and its alot slower than FF is i find, the best solution to having the IE only pages is the IE tab extension for FF that way the scriptblocker still works and so does the basic ad blocker.

I think IE is better because then I can infect my comp and learn how to disinfect it, alas Firefox does not offer me that thrill. Oh my, look what IE has for me today then, a nice exciting ping sound and flashy red botton, cool, sorry no you can't have it, it's mine, now where's that show your desk thread here?

Firefox and Thunderbird all the way!

Gotta love the customization of Mozilla. I haven't had problems with my computer in almost a year. No spyware, no adware, no viruses, nothing. It's awesome. I know it's not just Firefox saving me from all that bad stuff, but heck, it helps!

I've been using Firefox and Thunderbird for a long time and you couldn't pay me enough to switch back to IE and Outlook. IE technology is stagnant...it just sits and stinks. Firefox is constantly evolving and improving. I also use Sunbird for my calander...very handy for anyone who has a lot going on and has a memory as old as mine... :whistling:

yesiammanu...

When you install Firefox, it will give you the opportunity to import your IE favorites...just select the option to do so and all your Favorites will be right where you need them. It's a great browser...enjoy!

Download Firefox
