Most computer people out there will suggest Mozilla Firefox over Internet Explorer because it has a lot less bugs and its somewhat quicker. Also it has the handy "tab" feature as well.

Mozilla has still bugs, but it's a-must-have browser. Microsoft is so scared and therefore, it will release Internet Explorer 7 to kill Firefox.

The Browser War is nearby :mellow:

Butters is right its still buggy, but i havent had a virus/trojen or a browser hijack since i started using it. But the tabbed browsing in firefox could be better,there are other browsers that use tabbed browsing much better than firefox does.
[ but they are still based on Internet Explorer so they still suck ]

I'm using Firefox now and I have no problems compared as to when I was using IE.

Btw, I also added Opera in the poll so we can have a fair comparison.

another browser that I heard was pretty popular was Safari for mac but I've never used it so I can't say if it's any good or not.

from someone's sig in another forums
The only problem I have with IE is shitheads telling me I'm a faggot for using it

i dont have any problems with IE for the way i use it- im an intelligent user of the internet. i have anti-popup software, dont d/l strange shit, etc... and so it doesnt cause me problems compared with the majority of users who complaing of IE sucking/firefox is superirior

Well, I don't say that Internet Explorer sucks, but it has its guard down; That's its weak point. Firefox's weakest point is its incompatibility because some sites were designed to be viewable and fully functional with Internet Explorer. Let's take Invision Power Board forums for instance. The redirection thingy doesn't work for me on Firefox :(

I've got IE blocked on my firewall, cuz even when youre not using it it tries to get spyware onto your comp.. :thumbdown

I use Crazy Browser, I like the tab-browsing and it doesnt clash with IE. :)

heres a bug that i found on firefox...the bug goes away after a few seconds but its still a bug, nothing too major [ it wont mess up you pc so dont worry about that. ]

http://www.ign.com/
the flash animation goes crazy and it really starts flashing,
it only happens once, But if you restart firefox and go back to the link it'll happen again.

click the link and see if the bug is just an isolated incedent of if its a real bug.

I think Butters' post summarizes any point I'd make, except that Firefox also has the ability to integrate extensions. Stuff like AdBlock is awesome against those banner ads, for example. Or tab enhancements. I'm a proponent of the accessibility of public development, and that's where I think Firefox's strength lies.

i use this browser (http://www.flashpeak.com/sbrowser/) its really good i never had a problem with this and very few if not no bugs. i think of it as a hidden treasure since only about handful of people i know use this.

Its sad that there is even a choice. If Microsoft would shape the fuck up and patch its CSS support until IE7 is released, there wouldn't be a need for things to look differently

I'm quite comfortable with myself, if you aren't perhaps one of those filtering software suites would be good for you. Kids learn cursing from their parents, not the internet.

Anyway, there is nothing wrong with wanting performance, but there is nothing wrong with FF's performance, and it looks much better for it in the end

i know thier is nothing wrong FF and thats why i voted for it cuz i've used it at my friends house im just saying that i like slimbrowser cuz of the extra skins (they even got a star trek one lol) the tab feature and the performance i get from it and i don't think it looks that bad.

Firefox for me :)
@Butters: How is Netscape? I heard it's very good, but bigger and bit slower. I also heard it's better in opening some IE sites than FF. Is that true?

Jale

Netscape is like Internet Explorer and Firefox, all in one, and yes it's bigger and I don't know if it's better than Internet Explorer. The bad point is that it has too many bugs so stick with Firefox for a while.

Opera is the BEST one, becuase it has the most functions, it's the fastest, and it uses the least memory.
The only negative thing about it is a 2 line text ad, that you don't notice anymore after a week. Somehow people seem to think that it's a huge image banner, but it's not. It's a 2 line google ad, and you get used to it VERY quickly since it's at the top of the screen, and you don't need any toolbars up there (wtihout from tabs and adress bar).

People seem to prefer FireFox because it's open source and because fo the extentions.
The "open source" thing doesn't affect most regualr users. (if you're a programmer, ro at all can take advantage of it, then it's awesome, but for most it's not.)
And most of the extentions exist as plugins to Opera, or is deafult in Opera.
Note: I'm not saying FireFox is bad. Firefox is kicking rad, and I love it. It is only short of a _couple_ of functions that Opera provides that I can't live without.

im so lazy...
