Yay! (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/) :)

It fixes several security issues like the URL spoofing trick. Cool. I think I'm going to wait a while before I get it though and see if many bugs crop up...

And no, you don't need to tell me I'm a FF evangelist. Thank you. :p

And our dear prophet Mozilla hath said, whence the Firefox hath entered our realm of existance, it shalt cast down the vile IE on the day of reckoning, and show to all a new light. A fair light, filled with hope and promise, before unknownst to man.

of course, if your run XP its absolutely impossible to remove IE in its entirety. Even if your remove it from your 'windows components, parts of IE are scattered all over the place, in the internet connection setup files, dial up networking setup files etc...

If you have msn messenger, click 'email' see what browser it brings up to show your hotmail ??

you cannot dissociate IE from a windows platform... which I think is sorta scary :(

My hotmail defaults to IE as well. I don't think it's a major problem....

That's why I don't switch to Firefox. I rarely actually click the browser icon on my desktop, because I usually go from hotmail, which is IE. Oh well, Hitler it is.

he he .. saber, I dont think you have the power to declare teh thread over... jed does, and he seems to be enjoying the hijacked topic atm.. of course, there is a line that needs to be drawn for off topic banter. No one has crossed it *yet* but it's in the air..

Pieski I get where your coming from. But just look at who started it...

Thanks Matt. Now, to get back on topic.

Whats the best themes or extensions out for Firefox? I had to reinstall firefox and I want to get some neat things this time. ;)

I use IE because certain CSS, as well as iframes, only work/work best in IE.

If someone wants to go on about how crappy IE is, I couldn't care less :)

IEview
ChatZilla
Disable Targets For Downloads
BBCode <-- Get this one. So useful.
Download Manager Tweak
FoxyTunes
Tabbrowser Preferences

What do you mean by hotmail defaulting to ie? Surely it is just a web adrress, so it should use whatever the default browser is? Or do you have it set up in outlook or windows messenger something?

Aye, when I check my hotmail, it's via MSN Messenger.

you are right. Apprently there are ways to get around it

(a) regedit, but htis can mess up a few things in messenger
(b) stuffplug plugin, but this need messenger plus, which some consider adware

but i'm not sure either is worth the drawback.

The other option would be to switch to a different messenger client like Gaim that supports both msn messaging and deault browsers...

1) popup blocker
2) little bit speedier
3) The tabs function
