Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

Well, kinda. I use teh Firefoxy. I haff no problems with it. Though honestly, that doesnt answer you question to WHY its better...mainly because of speed and quality. You get to sites easier, and it blocks pop up ads, and warns you of viruses. Now that's groovy. ^_^

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

I prefer Firefox over internet explorer. The reason is IE is too tied into Windows and sometimes it saves a bunch of crap and shit into weird locations. Firefox is better since it is a stand-alone product, I know where everything is stored on it so if something messed up, I can fix it or remove it.

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

Pretty much what Tom said. Basically, if I get spamwares and other nasty little busgs to the system, they go straight for Internet Explorer, while I laugh from my Firefox seat high above them.

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

Yes, Firefox is a very reliable browser. Before using Opera, which i use now, i used Firefox. It's a great browser, and I definately recommend it. ^^

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

I used to use IE, it wasn't that great, got a lot of Viruses, it had a lot of useless junk on it.

Then I switched to FireFox, and the viruses stopped, and the speed increased a bit, also the Tab idea rocks, better having 10 tabs, in one window, then 10 seperate windows for IE

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

Actually, Firefox can be made MUCH faster than all of the other browsers with a few simple tweaks. Additionally, if you actually take the time to download the patches and plug ins, you will see, despite what a particular website explains, that it is much safer than any other as well. It also takes up less system resources than the newest version of IE (granted, it's a beta).

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

the newest IE is as good as firefox since it has cool skin and tabbed browsing, but u need a real edition of microsoft windows to work it, so if ur version is pirated, firefox is the only one to go

Re: Is firefox better than Internet Explorer?

firefox is easier to customize and if configed rite can run faster....
HOWEVER it lacks lots of support for certain media players and websites
IE finally fixed there lack of tabs in IE7 which has got me going between both...
