Favorite Web browser?
 
What's your browser of choice?

ChAiNz.2da 03-01-2006 05:40 AM

Gotta give props to Firefox.

Even though I'm mainly a MAC user, and Safari was a very close second.. Firefox with it's tabbed browsing, no-popups, themes, extensions and other goodies just outweigh any other browser's capabilities (IMO).

I've even been able to find a Firefox theme to simulate Safari's look :D

Firefox for me, I've got it installed on both my MAC & PC ;)

Ooooo.....A new poll. I use Internet Explorer bacause that's what we had on the computer when we bought it.

Justus 03-01-2006 10:46 AM

Firefox for me. Once I started using Firefox there was no going back for me. The tabbed browsing is awesome, a must have for people like me that like viewing multiple pages - have the presets the way I want them, so when I open the tabs they automatically goto my favorite site, absolutely wonderful. IE is so archaic and the code so shotty I'm suprised Microsoft even allows such a horrific product to be available to so many people.

IronTusk 03-01-2006 12:49 PM

I cant believe people still using explorer :D Firefox rulezz

El Sitherino 03-01-2006 02:06 PM

Firefox and Camino (basically the mac specific version of firefox).

Katarn07 03-01-2006 03:20 PM

IE = Adware, Spyware, and other unwanted crap even with Norton
Firefox = Better security and no popups

Vibro 03-01-2006 07:13 PM

Internet Explorer :).

Heh, IE is good enough, if you work with it right you can have no adware, spyware, and popups. I dont have nay ;)

TheOssusKeeper 03-01-2006 09:28 PM

Firefox... it's da' bomb

Samnmax221 03-01-2006 10:37 PM

Gotta love Firefox although I'v heard good things about Opera too

Darth Andrew 03-01-2006 10:50 PM

For all you Firefox users:

Would I have to change my internet service if I want to switch to Firefox? I ask because I'm quite snug in my current provider, SBC Yahoo DSL. Or would I still have SBC, but just use it with a different browser? It's all quite confusing to me, so I'm not sure what to do. :nut:

matt-- 03-01-2006 11:24 PM

You can use firefox with any internet service provider, just download it.

Kurgan 03-02-2006 12:07 AM

Don't let all this firefox lovin' by the other mods fool ya, Opera's good too (and I use it). ;)

Rexíos 03-02-2006 02:12 AM

Fire Fox all the way, I find that its better constructed and so on.
(First post btw :D)

The Source 03-02-2006 03:51 AM

I am an IE and Netscape person.

tk102 03-02-2006 11:08 AM

I am the only Netscape voter. :) Firefox got nothing on me. :xp:

TheOssusKeeper 03-02-2006 02:35 PM

oh come on Mac and tk102... firefox is awesome, try it you'll like it, hehehe...

actually I have IE, AOL, Firefox and Opera... but I use Firefox by far the most...

tk102 03-02-2006 02:58 PM

I don't think I've heard of another software application that gets "pushed" by its users harder than Firefox. (Think: drug dealer)

See? :D

90SK 03-02-2006 03:11 PM

I prefer Firefox, but I also use IE. Both seem to run fine, though I like the tab system that Firefox employs. And the search toolbar is great.

I know... it's funny isn't it... :lol:

Jeff 03-02-2006 03:54 PM

I use firefox the majority of the time, but on Windows I have messed it up somehow so I can't view flash animation or movies, so I use Opera for that kind of stuff since I'm too lazy to figure out the problem. And I use Firefox in Ubuntu as well.

Same here. :)

Samuel Dravis 03-02-2006 09:51 PM

I use Firefox, and if I need IE for whatever reason that's why I have the IE Tabs extension (sticks an IE instance inside of a FF tab), basically taking the best idea out of Netscape 8 and leapfrogging it. I used Netscape 7 before I switched to Firefox, and I liked that better than IE6 too... I really don't see why anyone sticks with IE.

Kurgan 03-02-2006 11:14 PM

At work the mac my boss has us use has IE, Netscape and Opera installed on it (I installed Opera, and of course it's the best!). I like how I can not just block popups but also "don't show images" (useful for surfing these forums in public) and delete all private data completely in 3 clicks when I'm finished. It never crashes, but if it did, I can resume right back where I left off (or if I close the program without closing each window beforehand).

Darth_Death 03-03-2006 07:46 PM

I haven't heard much about opera besides wat you told kurgan, I may look into that.

I also use firefox i luv the no pop ups function and also cas its free (at least for now)

Hallucination 03-03-2006 08:42 PM

I use Firefox at home, and Safari at school.

HUGOMAND 03-04-2006 04:47 AM

Firefox, of course :smash:

Samurai DD 03-04-2006 08:32 PM

You gotta ask? IE sucks major ****! Well, anything from Microsuck does... when you finally find the light that Linux and Mozilla are, there is no going back!

Steve-O Kreesh 03-04-2006 08:59 PM

Firefox without question!!!! If you use IE for too long, you'll have to reformat your computer in 6 months. IE has nothing on Firefox! :D

Give it a whirl, see what you think. Opera's free now too. From what I hear it has a lot of the same functions as Firefox, only you don't have to go hunting up your plugins to get the same functionality you get with the initial program. I don't know if it supports Linux yet though.

zerted 03-05-2006 01:48 PM

I am a strong supporter of Maxthon (used to be called MyIE2). It can render pages using IE's engine or use the Gecho engine. I like it much better than FireFox. Maxthon has a lot more built into it then FireFox. Its ad blocker works very well too. Both browsers support plug-ins.

If Maxthon isn't installed on a computer (it has to be installed :( ), I keep a copy of portable FireFox on my thumb drive to use.

Ha! I thought I was the only one...

I used IE for a long time and about every 6 months I would have to re-format my HD... I've been using Firefox for a while now and no re-formats, yaaah!

* Knock on wood... :smash: *

TSR 03-06-2006 05:10 AM

Might have to give it a try cause I keep hearing great stuff about it. I konw it has tabbed browsing but does it have integrated search?

Fate's Decision 03-08-2006 06:41 PM

I voted IE, I've never had any reason to switch to firefox.

Lady Jedi 03-09-2006 01:55 AM

Firefox all the way. Except for the pesky pages that won't work with FF, then I use the IE extention. The lack of ads, popups, and spyware cropping up is just plain awesome. :cool: Of course as soon as I open up IE for whatever purpose, there's flashing ads all over the place. Grrr! :xp:

The reasons to switch are all too apparent once you get used to FF. :p

Rogue Nine 03-09-2006 06:22 AM

Firefox > You.

Det. Bart Lasiter 03-09-2006 05:06 PM

^^^^
Despite the brief period where IE outshone it due to a security update and the pages that don't work with it and the lack of integration with Windows Media Player and other programs?

It's an awesome browser but it doesn't live up to the hype.
