    Hi! I'm new to HubPages. Are there any advantages of using Mozilla Firefox over IE for SEO purposes?

      I think you must use IE as firefox crashes more easily than IE

    Hub Pages will run on either but Firefox is way better.
    I will leave it to the experts here to give the nitty gritty details.

    I use Chrome - it is so fast - don't use IE it is horrible and so so slow!

    There have been a lot of reports of IE not working well with publishing hubs.  I had trouble with it loading photos as well, and finally went to FF for all my HP work.  I like it better, now that I've used it, anyway.

    Use FF or Chrome. As far as I know there is no impact in SEO of using these over IE but surely FF or Chrome works better for HP when using for hubbing. Lets see what the experts say. I personally never heard of anything like the "relation of browser with SEO".

      Sounds basically correct! There are some SEO-related extensions for Firefox and Chrome; one more reason to switch.

        WE, what extensions are you referring to for Chrome? Most toolbars etc won't install on Chrome,so I use FF to do anything SEO search related.

        Would be interested to know what Chrome extensions you're referring to (The only one I've found puts a button next to my Customise Wrench, called Chrome SEO.)

          If you google "chrome seo" you will find many toolbars and plugins.

            Hmmm why didn't I think of anything that obvious?

            I'd tried for a few things but most aren't configured for chrome.

            Thanks!

        Thanks all for sharing... I'll switch to FF and/or Chrome as soon as possible. Any idea whether plugins for OnlyWire and SocialMarker are supported on Chrome?

          Onlywire discontinued browser add-ons. Socialmarker uses bookmark function for redirection.

    Some sites like sxc.hu (where I find most of the photos that illustrate my Hubs) don't play well with FF. Mostly, I use FF, but when it comes to sxc, I use IE. I've sent messages to sxc explaining what happens. They don't address the problem.

    The universal common software based on a common standard still doesn't exist.

    Bottom line, I use both.

    IE gives me grief when I'm using code capsules, FF does not.

    I mostly use Chrome because it is fast and has many of the better Ff extensions and doesn't crash like FF.

    However, I do use FF if I have need of a particular extension and also use Safari and Opera now and then.

    I haven't tried Chrome, but Firefox beats IE hands down.  IE is just plain annyoing.  Some types of videos just don't work in IE.

    Firefox 3.6 will remember what web page you were looking at if your system goes down for some reason.  Next time you start Firefox it goes to that page (usually without requiring you to sign in again)!  I doubt if IE will do that.

    Seems like many of us are abandoning IE in droves.  Yay!  Leave it to the corporate world who don't know any better. mad

    Yep, IE is not working too well for HP capsules, Fire fox and Chrome are wonderful, fast and smooth I have no glitches since I have switched.

    Chrome only recently started supporting extensions. So there are fewer of them, and they may be well tested compared with those for Firefox.
