    Mozilla Firefox Users

    Hey, I want to use FF now because of the increasing IE security threats and I heard it is a great browser.

    Is there anything I need to know?
    Does it work like IE?
    Is there anything it cannot do that IE can?

    I really know nothing about FF except my brother uses it.

    Thanks Purp Bros!

    Re: Mozilla Firefox Users

    FF is all I use... I'm a very anti-IE advocate.

    It's pretty much the same interface, but it runs faster and is a bit simpler. When you open a new tab, there's not a whole paragraph that pops up explaining what a "Tab" is and treating you like an idiot. I like how IE explains what "Tabs" are, yet they were one of the last web browsers to adopt them.

    As far as the technical aspect goes, I'm not sure... I'm no tech.

    Very simple, very user friendly.

    I don't know of any differences between it and internet explorer, except for how much better firefox is

    I use both Firefox and Chrome, and both are infinitely better than IE.

    The only issue i had was with FF3

    We downloaded it at home and at work and it constantly crashed on us on both computers so I ended up removing it and reinstalling FF2 and it works fine.

    Re: Mozilla Firefox Users

    I use three browsers and FF is my favorite.
    Safari isn't bad but it seems to run slow on my PC despite what others say about it.
    IE isn't bad but not to par with FF.

    I'm pretty sure they advertise safari as one of the lightest browsers (size wise), but I'm pretty sure it's a larger file than FF or IE...

    Don't quote me on that. I wasn't impressed with Safari either though.

    The only problem I have had with FireFox is that if you have an embedded e-mail on a web page you want to mail, clicking on it will not bring up your e-mail program as it does in IE. It will show the address at the bottom of the page you are not but not link directly with your e-mail program.

    The only complaint I have for firefox is I can't get it to play streaming songs off zshare.net

    PC version lags.
