Long time IE user, was too lazy to switch. I installed firefox and am loving it. mouse gestures, ad blocking and tabbed browsing :thumbsup:

Personally Opera is my favorite, but as long as you use anything other than IE then you are making the right choice.

FF is a memory killer for me for some reason. I think my RAM is just shot because it seems to suck lately. Maybe new RAM and a new CPU would help things.

One thing I hate about Firefox is that you cannot click on links while the page is still loading.

Yeah... that's one other thing that bugs me. IE seems more "loose" if you understand that. FireFox is more of a solid browser. I dunno, that's just the way it feels to me.

If you want to switch to that sh!tty ass browser go ahead, but post in one of the 10 million threads that already exist.

I disagree with your opinion on the quality of the browser, but this thread definitely doesn't belong here.

Ass. :p

Ass. :p

same feelings here. firefox is free, simple, and offers a ton of extensions, all of which are free for you to install.

i know there are some problems with displaying pages once in a while and its update system is pretty stupid, but i can't understand the logic of someone complain about free stuff.

I think this sums up my feelings on the browser wars pretty well (posted by Christian Weisgerber on the OpenBSD ports@ mailing list):

Konqueror? Really, there are none. It looks like the whole "Web"
tangle, with various versions of HTML, XML, CSS, Javascript, etc,
all having to be bug-for-bug compatible with Netscape and MSIE, is
such a mess that any browser that implements it all _must_ turn
into a bloated pig of a program with gobs of inscrutable, buggy
code. (Even lynx is a bloated pig.) Slimmer programs such as dillo
simply don't implement enough features to satisfy people's expectations.

I'm sorry, but technology-wise the real-world Web is a pit of filth,
and to participate in the experience you need to eat shit. Bon
appetit.

It seems to work fine for me. What version are you running?

Most software is designed/written like ass anyways. I've seen mozilla code and it didn't seem especially bad.

i recently switched over from Opera, which was crashing too much and was not loading many pages correctly.

Its very good, much better than Phoenix 0.3, which I used long ago.
