    Switch your web browser to Mozilla Firefox.

    Discussion started by non-hetero - Apr 7, 2004

    Mozilla Firefox is a web browser. It is the best web browser I have used.

    I'm not going to go into all the specs but I'll like what -I- like about it.
    - It blocks popups
    - It has tabbed browing
    - It is very configurable
    - It is fast
    - When you view large images it scales to the size of your screen and you have a zoom button to see the whole thing.
    - It has a google search bar and you can addon other search buttons like dictionary.com/ebay.com. Just dropdown to what search engine you want.
    - Lots of extentions.
    - Lots of themes.
    - A download manager.
    - Spyware is designed to install on IE. I havn't got any spyware since I installed FireFox.

    Great article walking you through installation and all the features with screen shots.

    Been on it for about two months now. I was very skeptic at first cause of font-smoothing issues, but now that I've sorted them out I can't even think of using anything else.

    It's been about 5 months for me.

    I even installed it at school so I wouldn't have to use IE.

    i like it but it has some a lot of bugs.

    the worst of which is haveing multiple tabs open , one of which contains a quicktime file. the quicktime can pop through the tabs giving you a quicktime movie from another tab plopped into/ on top of what evers in the current tab.

    but i still like it.and for several months now as well.

    hev/ up to the time, down to the minute

    heavyLox I don't get that bug.

    I do however crash my Mozilla if I switch tabs w/o clicking cancel when it asks to upgrade my Quicktime.

    Maybe I should just upgrade quicktime :)

    I don't have heavy's bug, but I am unable to install all the dope extensions. I probably simply have to download the latest nightly build, but I know a lot of people on Macs with this issue.

    i guess that could cut into you looking at porn while at work...:D

    so far i'd say this is the best non IE browser ive used. It isnt laggin when watching intense flash, and i really like how when you context click a link to make it load in a new tab, it puts the tab behind your current window instead of taking you directly to that page and me having to click back to the original page. not to mention this thing loads so much faster.

    i havent had the quicktime problem, when i was using camino i got that all the time, pretty annoying.

    I still would rather use Avant Browser.

    I tend to switch it up sometimes though.
    Some websites tend to be faster on Firefox while some are faster to dload using Avant.
