browser

is this the right forum for this? I'm not sure

anyways.....which internet browser is your favorite and are there any good reasions why?

for me, I love firefox! its much better than internet explorer, it comes with a built in pop up blocker and google search bar, its also faster and looks better (imo) and you can download some neat extras for it such as the web designers extechion

Firefox all the way! Well, except for my online bank, it only supports IE for whatever reason.

You can also make your own additions to Firefox, although I've never tried to myself.

And browsers are software, not hardware. But I guess we can let you go this time . Also, anyone else noticed that the title of this area is misspelt? Shame on you Shaggy, back to school with you!

Make that a third Firefox user. It's absolutely awesome. I hate going to a friend's house or on the computer at school and having to use Internet Explorer. Firefox 100%. And Thunderbird for e-mail, naturally.

I use firefox. I find it faster than IE and love the extensions and themes you can use to personalise it to your own tastes and uses. The best thing about it however is adblock, I love that extension .

Re: browser

I go with Firefox, but Spyware is sure enough turning toward it since it's "official" release. I'm gonna try out the new Google Browser when it comes out. BTW, if you don't like leaving without Firefox, just download "Portable firefox" A homade application that allows you to use Firefox (Fully customizable) on a flash drive (Or whatever removable media that you use).

P.S. I also use Lynx!!! w00t for Linux!

Re: browser

I go with Maxthon Because it's fast, and it loads faster, but it is not compatible with many
sites so I use Internet Explorer.

Tab browsing. Sure it's not unique for Firefox, but IE sure as hell doesn't have it. Once you get used to it, you'll hate IE from the bottom of your heart if you try to go back
