    Thumbs up firefox 4

    Just upgraded my browser to firefox 4, and speed is definitely faster.
    I recommend for optimal Swellinfo viewing pleasure

    haha. nice. I am picturing you walking to the beach with Mozilla and Firefox sponsor stickers all over your board! I do love firefox though. If i could completely disable IE, I would, but windows will not let me. I just removed every icon on the whole machine so no one accidentally spawns it.

    Interesting. I got it and it kept freezing Windows 7. Had to uninstall.

    IE is a web developers nemesis. Its the worst, because IE likes to play by different rules, which don't make sense.

    firefox has been crashing on me lately so I switched to chrome... super fast, but i think there is some compatibility issues with some surf contest live streams

    chrome seems to be really fast though

    ya, chrome is fast. For some reason, I like FF better though. Can't tell you why.

    Using Internet Explorer is like riding a Bic.


    I prefer Chrome, but have heard good things about the new Firefox.

    firefox is secure and safe! Every trojan, malware and spammer has hacked every available version of I.E.

    IE is seriously the bridge between computer viruses and your machine. All the code for I.E. has always been spotty. By the time patches and upgrades are released, they have already been hacked...

    IE is terrible. Again, because any version of windows REQUIRES it to be installed. You cannot remove it. So it acts are the portal into choas....

    I have a Comp Sci degree, and literally EVERY single person I know has asked me over the past 3-5 years to come over and "fix their computer"... And EVERY TIME, it has to do with malware, spyware and it ALWAYS, EVERYTIME comes right in through I.E.

    The first thing i do before cleaning their machine up is take every IE icon and shortcut to it and completely remove it. So the only way it can get spawned is by actually typing it in a rnu box....

    IE SUCKS!!!!

    Firefox is the grandson of Netscape, old school open source coding that was completely secure...

    Not to mention that Firefox is multi-lplatform... Unix/Linux, the works...

    Maybe we should start asking Mozilla/Firefox for some sponsorship money. I will slap a firefox sticker on my board for a free trip =)
