Firefox > *
You think? I've tried firefox before and found it drastically slower than IE.
And if I might throw my two cents in here... I don't think there's much difference between browsers. In my opinion people use Firefox, for example, because it's not IE and they're trying to be cool by being different. Same thing with people suddenly switching to Google Talk when they already have all their friends on MSN. (not trying to piss anyone off here or say Firefox sucks, just my opinion. For once I'm not trying to stir up a shit storm!)
I got Firefox before IE got tabbed browsing, and I've used it ever since.
At first I got FireFox before tabbed browsing as was said before, so it was nice. I still used IE for anything image-heavy, as FF was a good amount slower then IE in those situations. FF has sped up, and IE has tabbed browsing, so they aren't too different to me now.
Firefox and Safari are still far superior at blocking trojan spyware. IE still has some serious security holes due to active x on that front.
I lean towards agreeing with you. On my older PC, IE was a b*tch to run, it was buggy, slow and for that machine and with Netscape more or less defunct, Firefox was a superb alternative.
When I got my Mac, Safari had several quicks (notably cookie issues and a few java/flash issues) that prompted me to get Firefox for Mac as well. Even after doubling the Ram, Safari is still a bit pokey to me, an issue I've not had with Firefox.
But in the end, ANY of the browsers would have worked fine for what I do, I simply prefer the stylistic and feature set of Firefox more than the other options, although I am eyeing Camino (a Netscape/Mozilla based browser for Mac, heard some good things)
I'm a bit surprised Apple is taking this step, and I'll be interested to see if it has any impact on the Windows world. In my opinion, as it is on the Mac, I'm not horrifically impressed with Safari, though I don't have the newest IE (or even a Windows machine to run it!) to see how they compare.
I have found Firefox vastly superior to IE, it's all I use anymore.
Same here. I don't use it because it's cool or trendy, I just use it because it works better than anything else I have used.
I don't see something made by apple making me change my mind. I don't think I've ever liked ANY apple software.
Quicktime, iTunes, they all seem to piss me off eventually.
I like quicktime, but that's about the only thing from apple I care for.
i find FF way better than IE...the layout of the buttons are better placed, the tabbing is way better. Everything loads faster, even the program.
Tried Opera when FF was acting up, but that was not a good idea.
I might try Safari just for the heck of it, and i need a backup in case FF ever acts up again.
i want an apple, but the whole one button on the mouse drives me nuts.
still IE for me. I tried Firefox and why the heck it was so slow loading up and some sites don't work that well.
I use Opera... I feel so alone!
Apple's have been able to use 2+ buttons mouse's (mice?) for years. I think all new Macs come standard with the Mighty Mouse which are two button mice(at least).
damn...the demos they have that you can try out all have the one button...im gonna have to go check it out again...or is it that i looks like one button but actually is two (left side for left click and right side for right click)?
Only 2 buttons? Egads! How does one play games without at least 5 buttons on the mouse, plus a scroll wheel?
i just need two buttons and a scroll...
*hugs his 6 button mouse with the light up mouse wheel*
I use IE at work, since thats what most of our customers use. I can use it as a quick reference if I'm telling a customer to do something.
But I use Firefox at home.
