I use both Opera and Firefox but mostly Firefox because it's nicer and faster for some reason.

Another add for our off-topic forum ^_^

So, what's the Internet browser you're using?
Most importantly, if you have used a different one in the past, which left you most satisfied?

I'm seeing a lot of increase in popularity for Firefox, so I wonder if I'm missing out anything still staying with Internet Explorer, so let's see what you moonies prefer! :P

I don't know if there's a mistake on the list, browsers on the list are based on this site: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/default.asp


Yes, you are missing out with using Internet Exploder.

More security in Firefox. Easy to add plug ins for additional features, such as video downloading from Youtube and other content it recognizes (this is such a huge help), and 4chan board access.

Most of the nasty bugs on the net target IE so with Firefox, you don't have that problem.

It's also easier to switch off Javascript and go after content on pages that have that stupid right mouse button trapping crap! It's so much easier to save images. I also have a separate hard to find program called The Zonie Downloader, so I copy links and image URLs into it and it grabs it. Of course, there's probably a Firefox plug in for stuff like that, but I like how I have it now.

The only thing I use IE for anymore is paying my DirecTV bill which I can't get to work and I'm still using Firefox v.2. Might switch to Firefox 3 at some point.

Also I use plugins such as Flash Block - I have so much control over flash content it's not funny. And AdBlock+ - I don't have to see ads if I don't want to! And it also blocks some scripts that create double underlines under words.

And I use NoScript for even more security against click jacking. This is similar to the security Micro$oft is trying to implement in IE 8 but is epically failing. Get Firefox. Much safer for web browsing, too.

Plus I love Firefox's way it allows you to control cookie handling. So much better than Internet Exploder.

I thought Mozilla was Firefox... at the top of my browser it says "Mozilla Firefox". Do they have another web browser I wasn't aware of?

I love the durability of Firefox compared to Internet Explorer. As they were the first to use tabs, I have never gone back. I used Netscape in High School, Safari at College, and used OperaMini on my phone, but I still like the interface of Firefox, and it's designed so much better. Since using it, I have had no virus problems. Although Explorer has gotten good with their security, it has caused their browser to be cluttered and annoying.

Firefox for life! :P

No offence to anyone using Firefox, but I think that most (if not all) of its popularity comes not from any of its functions or features,

As to me, such silly promotional campaigns and attitude of people promoting Firefox more than anything averted me from ever using it. At least I never saw IE "brainwashed" website owners blocking access to their websites on intention if you are using Firefox (a typical example is sailormoon.org - try browsing it using IE and Firefox, and you'll see the difference, and there are thousands of other websites like that :roll: )


Some sites blocked people if they used Netscrape.
there are ways around the Browser check. ^_^ I just got on Sailormoon.org and I see NoScript telling me it's blocking a script. This may be the browser blocking you refer to. But I can use it. Not that I do much anyway. Seems like a waste of time.

Firefox never brainwashed people. But there is a reason why people promoted Firefox. It allows for safer web browsing.

Besides, you need an alternate browser next time your system gets hit with a spybot and IE refuses to load. I've seen it happen more than once.

I'm sure that there is a certain amount of sites blocking Firefox, too. But neither Netscape haters, nor Firefox haters ever declared any holy wars like "Firefox adepts" are doing it now. My point remains the same: promotion is fine, pushing ultimatums isn't. And if the whole Firefox campaign was just about such a simple thing as "safer web browsing", it would never gain such a huge scale, and it wouldn't be followed by slogans like let's save the world from domination of Microsoft and what not; and why they are blocking me from their websites - only because I don't care about my own "better safety"? In their slogans they say something like Internet should be free and not controlled by anyone, but, in fact, with their browser blocking campaign, they try to take away my freedom to choose what browser I want to use. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Well, Firefox users won't see them even without ad blocking, since they are intended only for those of us who were not enlightened by the blessing Firefox is. Here is how it looks like. And you have to choose: either download Firefox, or quit site for good, since the script added to website code won't allow you to proceed. When I stumbled upon a couple of websites pushing ultimatums on me like that I swore that I will never in my life click that "Click here to download Firefox. It's free" link :x

OMG :eek: Bleh!!

I have heard of Opera, Firefox and (in the "old days") Netscape, but I've always stuck wth IE.

Firefox.
It seems to have better security than IE, and the fact that I can use a Mario theme kinda won me over...
my school computers use Chrome and IE.

I'm thinking about trying out Opera. I've been curious how it is ever since I read about it.

I am using Firefox because I am switching over to Linux soon and it would be a waste to set it up, but I really like Chrome. Though fire fox has been good to me too.

I used Internet Explorer 8 since day one on my new computer, but it has gone way too sluggish in terms of webpage loading. I am now using Firefox, which is working very well (and fast) for me.


How about you ?


Thanks for reading.

I used to use Internet Explorer, but it got really buggy.

So now I use Fire Fox, which is only occasionally buggy.

Yeah, I respect Internet Explorer. Though it's easy target for those pop up ads that mask themselves as saying your computer is infected by bogus malware.

If Firefox had the option of editing pages in Notepad, so will be using it.

I mostly use Firefox, but i also use Google Chrome for e-mail checking and fast browsing (when i need to quickly get to a page or smth). Firefox is the greatest of all, you can add extensions/themes, its also lightning fast and stable! Chrome is also really fast, but pretty unstable. sometimes, when i have a Yahoo Mail tab open and this forum in another tab, it crashes XD.

As for Internet Explorer...meh. I just hate it, it doesnt have half the features/speed of Firefox. :evil:

so yeah, DIE EXPLODER!!

I tried Firefox when I was having a problem with my IE. I still couldn't get on via Firefox (But could on AOL. The worst browser ever) but when I sorted it all out, I carried on using Firefox.

I just seem to like it better.

Why do you add "Andy" after your posts?
You could put it to your sig, and you still can.

I use Google Chrome, and since I learnt to use it, it's very handy. I usually keep visiting same sites, so they appear to the start page... And it's a faster than IE. I like this a lot more. :keke:

Tough, I can still use IE, I don't want to start bashing it. Some of my friends, who used Firefox (and I was still useing IE) bashed me and IE... twasn't very nice. :(

Pages on my startpage: Epic Place, SMRPG, Wikimoon, YouTube, Google, eBay/Sailormusic, IRC-gallery and Catzia's collectibles. Pages of TOTAL moonie :keke:

I didn't realize Mozilla and Firefox were different.

I ignored Firefox for a looong time after it came out, until Internet Explorer 7 happened. Then I was so horrified (for those who don't remember, IE6 and IE7 were radically different; even the most up-to-date Firefox is closer to how IE6 was than IE7, 8, or 9) that I started using Firefox for the sites that needed updated browsers. That was about 4 years ago, I think. Over time, I started using Firefox exclusively because most sites loaded better in that than the outdated IE6. But then Facebook stopped working on Firefox AND on IE6, so I had to bite the bullet and download a new version of Internet Explorer, which I just use for Facebook purposes. For everything else, I use Firefox.

They recently re-did the site to use a bunch of pop-ups instead of new pages (for example, if you want to view your friends, or if you are using an application like Farmville ^_^' ), and those will not load no matter what I do. I looked online and it seems many other people are having the same problem, but there doesn't appear to be a fix yet. :confused:

All of you who use Internet Explorer... :confused: It's slow, it clicks REALLY LOUDLY (at least the older versions do), a lot of people don't even make websites for it anymore because it's outdated, and... just no. No. I got a virus from it. Switched to Firefox when it happened, haven't had any problems since.
