Firefox vs Internet Explorer
fuck off, fuck you, middle finger
yea so i decided that i should make a post about getting Firefox and dumping IE. I mean, sure.. the CSS filters, scrollbar colors, and page transitions will no longer exist. BUT you also wont have to worry about that annoying spyware that everyone using IE seems to get :-P


"Firefox is lauded by fans for its download speed and a superior user interface, and users say that its pop-up blocker is one of the best out there. It offers tabbed browsing, which means that users can jump back and forth between different sites with only one window open, and live bookmarks, which show users the most recent headlines on their favorite sites and lets them go directly to those articles." (http://www.forbes.com/home/ebusiness/2004/10/04/cx_pp_1004mondaymatchup.html)

here's a couple more websites to check out for more info on the FF vs. IE comparison:
"but Microsoft has now stopped releasing updated versions for any platform aside from Windows XP. Its product manager has stated that customers will only be able to receive future versions of IE by installing new versions of Windows" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer)

"Firefox has attracted attention as an alternative to Internet Explorer, which has come under fire for its alleged insecurity—detractors cite IE's disregard for Web standards, use of the often-dangerous ActiveX component, and vulnerability to spyware and malware installation. Internet Explorer also lacks many features that Firefox's proponents consider essential. (http://www.informationweek.com/story/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=53700753) Microsoft, for its part, has responded that it doesn't feel issues with either security or features are a major concern." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox)

"Since last summer, we've been testing Firefox, and, frankly, we're sold: Firefox is just as fast and just as easy as Internet Explorer--and more importantly, it's much more secure.
And feature by feature, Firefox either matches or surpasses IE.
" (http://reviews-zdnet.com.com/4520-3000_16-5561073-1.html?tag=nl.e540-1)

although, referring to the last one.. in my experience, firefox is faster then IE :) and for those broadband users that are also using IE, go check out my post(it really works): How to Speed Up Firefox Page Load
