I have been a Firefox nut since 2004. I am also fanatical about open-source operating systems, all of which include the fox. I will continue using Firefox as long as it is supported.

IE was just an attempt to make deals with advertisers and such, and to get the cash users were giving to Netscape, before MS included IE. Firefox is the revenge of Netscape!
I've used Firefox for about 4 months now, and I think it's great. I've been getting a lot of blue screen lately, which I think is due to my mobile broadband driver,and I love the way Firefox saves all my stuff and puts me back where I was.

I love the morning coffee add-on that brings up my most used pages every time I boot up. I love the way it points to my web mail, without me having to go looking. I don't like the way all my saved web sites get lost and turn up under 'history ~> unsorted bookmarks' but I'm sure I've probably set something up wrongly, not them.

Hey Eric and Peter, I knew Flock was driven by firefox and it was a factor in choosing it. I love the sidebar auto sign-ons! Trouble is it crapped itself 2 weeks ago, so I am running Firefox as we speak. Peter that laptop is weeks old, outdated mate!
Firefox is useful for the SEOquake plugin to get page rank of the sites you will be up against if you write a hub for a particular keyword, otherwise I reckon it is too cumbersome and slow compared to Google Chrome.
Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?
Just curious what browser do you use?I have been using Internet Explorer and just recently have had problems with it. I did a virus scan, a spyware scan, and nothing seemed to work. I could only use IE in add ons...
For the record, I am pro-Firefox."It doesn’t look good for Firefox: Almost every month for the last three years, Firefox has lost ground to Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari. For most of 2009 the trend was...
