    I have been using Mozilla for awhile now and refuse to open IE anymore. Pop ups are a thing of the past, no program for IE worked as well as Mozilla does, and I used quite a few. Tabbed browsing is also a nice feature. Also it is much more secure, no real exploits as of yet. Can't think of any negatives. I would download it and give it a try if I were you, you can always delete it if you don't like it.

  3. thanks for the info bassman

    well i tried it and so far i like what i see.fire fox has some neat features like making the text bigger or smaller,browers tabs and seems to be pretty much strait forward.
     
  4. well i thought i liked it...maybe i still do.

    i just tried to get into chat and it wont let me in. it says i need to download plug ins and when i try it says there are no plug ins.any ideas????

    I love firefox, but it isn't the beat-all end-all of browsers. I still have some site problems with it (OGF included). Curse you Bill Gates!

    firefox is way cool. i use it here and at work. be sure to check out the extensions (plug-ins)

    bubba, you just need to install java runtime environment JRE

  9. I've been using Mozilla for over a year, and IMHO, it is far superior to IE. I've also used Firefox and think it is great, too.

    i havn't used fire fox...i'm going to very soon, you don't have to worry about viruses and hackers as much because most people use IE therefore thats what most of them are targeting for, its ALOT more secure and from all the people i know that have it, they love it.
