    I have offically switched to FireFox.

    That's right.

    I was an IE guy, a hige Microsoft fan, but I decided to try out FireFox, and now I'm hoocked. I love tabbed browsing, and the boatload of features that come with Firefox.

    yeah, yeah, I know - I deserve a wedgie for that

    I love the Firefox browser also. Beats the hell out of IE.

    Eh, IE only gave you spyware if you downloaded it. It actually WAS (I know most of you won't admit it) your fault for a lot of it.

    I have actually had less problems with Avant Browser, basically a mod for IE, then I did with Firefox.

    I really don't need all those plugins. And the Ad killer really works well!
    Happy Anniversary, MiceChat!

    This is true. If IE came with spyware than millions of other people would have the same problem. you get spyware from going to unmentionable webpages, kazaa, etc.

    Can firefox be set to NOT use tabs? I've tried tab browsing several times, and it just doesn't click with me.

    Ok, so I've played about with tabbed browsing and don't necessarily find it that usefull - what are all these wonderful plugins that make this the best browswer since sliced bread?

    When I use Firefox I tend to have less break downs & less pop ups. However it can still be frustrating when a site is designed for IE and nothing else. So at times I have to switch back to IE. Otherwise, I do prefer it more. I too am not sure what every plugin is and what its use is for. Frankly, I don't care as long as the browser itself works

    This plugin might help ease the pain of that a little.

    FireFox is hype. Will die soon.

    Or it'll become popular and geeks will start attacking it.
