Pie and Majin, you must mean the prerelease. Firefox 1.0 was released today. I imagine you have 1.0PR (PR means PreRelease).

I'm sure they are similar, but 1.0 probably has a few minor bug fixes to give it a nice finish, as compared to 1.0PR

/ Edit /

Here (http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/releases/1.0.html) are the changes from 1.0PR (aka 0.10.1) to 1.0

There were a lot of fixes, just unnoticeable..but at least you wont need 100+ security patches etc.

I'm glad the new yorks time campaign had great results (10 000 names instead of the expected 2500) and I sure hope FF's percentage will increase on the web

As for spreading the word, i already am :p

I bet MS is gonna try releasing some big patch some time soon to try and get some users back.

Mozilla FireFox

Already put it on all my Wintel machines today,.. but can't get it to install on my Linux box. Version .93 ran just fine on it, but 1.0 gets an error message about being unable to create a directory... and I'm too much of a Linux newcomer to troubleshoot the problem.

I'll give it another shot on Thursday.

I love Firefox. :)

Seriously, I used Netscape 7.1 before, and Firefox beats it up with a stick. There's no comparing it to IE. They're just not even in the same category.

I am seriously wondering why FireFox is better than IE, I actually really don't know. Could someone tell me why I should get FireFox?

IE has security flaws. And this has tabbed browsing, which means less windows. ;)

Agen

Faster,
Less memory whoring,
No known security flaws compared to M$'s disgrace,
Tabbed,
More space for viewing, it's cleaner etc.,
Built in googlebar with no semi-adware,
Auto Popup Blocker,
Built in Download Manager,
better integration with thunderbird (mozilla e-mail) than IE does with outlook and
does everything IE can but better :P

I'm sure there's more but that's just off the top of my head.

Hmm yes, though I'm not ready to destroy it, I'm not overly impressed with trillian. Never mind, thanx anyway, IE will just have to stay installed.

It's said with WinXP you CAN'T uninstall IE because it's a critical program or something... no matter, it can stay there for Windows Update as FireFox can't view it.

Also for spreading the word, as Slashdot users have said, you should go into your friend's computer, change the IE shortcut to the FireFox executable and keep its E icon, and change all the remaining IE shortcuts to FireFox and hide the IE folders. :D

But why?
No crap from MSN, no need to install the crappy icq program or aim...
just one nice program with no limits on amount of contacts or any others stupid things with other IMs. (oh yeh and get pro from somewhere (or trillian pro 3 beta), the free version kinda sucks)
I've never had anny problems with it.
Just ashame it doesn't have XFire with it :(

BTW, you can 'break' IE just like you can do to MSN by fiddling. Alternatively you can nuke it from DOS.

Works for me :P

B]

get the pro version?

you see i will NEVER pay for an IM program. ever. between paying for Trillian, or putting up with the odd e-mail from hotmail i will go with the latter

i dont own ICQ nor do i know anyone who does. Trillian, for the short time i used it, annoyed the hell outa me, it would only connect one time in three or it would claim to have connected when it had in fact done no such thing. or having connected it would decide it had had enough of this IM lark and wanted to go home and disconnected me from my conversations. *shudders at memories*

MSN on the other hand, has served me well and ive never had a reason to reproach myself on my decision to download it (im on ME you see) i dont buy into this necessity people seem to have to replace microsoft programs just because they are microsoft.

fight the power :rolleyes:

Er... not that I know this by experience or anything :o.... but Firefox has a little extention for it called "Down-Them-All" that allows you to download all the links (say pictures or videos) on a page with one click.

Seems to me that might just come in handy with your particular browsing interests.

Where did i ever say 'buy' :rolleyes:
Oh yah.. and get gmail.

ATM, I have 331 icq contacts on my list at the moment, mostly jk clan business etc. MSN annoys the hell out of me, seriously... how much memory can a single IM program waste? It doesn't allow you to view people who are in 'appear offline' mode, no plugins allowed, limits, ads etc. etc.

I definately don't go out of my way to get things just because they are not Micro$oft... they're usually much better and more efficient. (not to mention ICQ, Aim and Yahoo were in existance before MSN tried to get in on the game)
