Which Web Browser do you use?
« on: August 26, 2006, 02:07:49 am »

Just out of interest, I wonder how many people here actually do use Firefox. From what I can gather, many do. I will predict before we start that Firefox will come out top amongst this particular group of individuals.

Right now I'm using Safari on the Mac, but I use Firefox most of the time. I'm not using it right now because I have too many pages saved in tabs, and didn't want to wait while they all opened up.

I think for the PC, it's indispensable. I wouldn't use any other one.

Safari is actually Konqueror, part of KDE ;-)

I love Firefox. My husband hates it, so we use IE.

Why not use Firefox yourself and let your other half stick to IE?

We did that for a while, then the computer got very sick. He blamed it on Firefox, since that was the last thing installed. I uninstalled it (I'm the techie here) and things were better for a bit. So..I'm willing to deal with Mr. Gates on a daily basis.

Besides, my iBook is at school. I prefer that.  :lol:

Firefox and IE. I much prefer Firefox, but keep IE running because some websites work better using it.

There is a extension for firefox called IETab. This allows you to run IE from within Firefox. Works brilliantly, though the usual limitations still apply (no tabbed browsing from IE, something which puts Firefox streets ahead)

I am a Firefox user, but have to use IE at work.  I discovered that there is a new beta version of IE that uses tabs.

IE 7 seems to be heading in the right direction, but one serious flaw in it is that it is not cross-platform, Firefox is.

I hate Microsoft specific stuff on the Internet, MSN Groups and the chat they have in it is one such example, I got it working eventually using Wine, but it only works occasionally.

Web pages that only work is IE are not W3C compliant and as such constitute shoddy programming.

As for being forced to use IE at work, your company techs must be gluttons for punishment, the amount of wasted bandwidth, plus all the spyware, malware and adware that IE lets in must create a serious workload for them.

If you use IE under windows, go to www.hitmanpro.nl and click on the download link. Then run the program. It is 100% safe and it will download a number of programs if you do not already have them and then run them. This is perhaps the best way to run the spyware, malware and adware removal programs as it does them one after the other.

I use it to clean windows machines of crap and usually manage to scare the living crap out of companies when they see just how much crap they have on their systems. This stuff is worse than viruses.

Firefox 99% of the time.Like Rabin said, not all websites and programs run well with Firefox.

Firefox, definately. 

But there is a tabbed browsing feature for IE that I use at work.  I don't know where it is, but our work techs told me where to get it.  If anyone's interested, I can look when I get to work tomorrow.
