BRILLIANT!

  2. Never looked back once I got firefox. When I'm using the work PC that has Internet Explorer I'm lost - I keep going to open another tab or just type part of a url into the address window expecting it to find it like Firefox does. No search engine window either.

    Only snag with Firefox is that some web pages don't work properly on it but it's very unusual to find one nowadays.
     
  3. I've used Firefox for the past nine months; it beats IE hands down. It's faster and safer. I also downloaded OpenOffice after seeing it in a signature block. Equal to MS Office with the benefit that it's free.
     
  4. I think Ive used Firefox for a few years now. One of the best browsers out there.
