    I've used Firefox off and on, here and there, but today I decided to give it my undivided attention.

    Holy shit, this program is superior to IE in like every way!

    I'll never open IE again.

    Oh, you will also notice that more websites open and render correctly with Firefox.

    I've found people tend to stick with what they started with. You wouldn't believe how many people still use that absolute piece of junk, completely outdated AOL browser!

    By the way, even with IE closed it's still accessing the internet. Open your Windows Media Player (It's IE based) and go File>Work Offline to stop this, and keep checking that and making sure it stays that way.

    Welcome to the 21st Century of web browsing!

    On the real though, it's friggin great. I was getting lagging websites today with IE so I decided to try Firefox for the hell of it, and it's Mf-ing LIGHTNING FAST.

    Scottrade was giving me problems with slow ass loading and it was killing me, I missed out on a stock spike because of it.

    I'm contemplating switching my entire OS now. Fuck, the anxiety that change will cause...:rolleyes:

    There's lots of add-ons and toys you can get with FF. Go Tools>Add-ons and explore.

    And Ubuntu is a great OS, its default browser is FF. And you don't have to give up windows to use it.

    I made the switch when I noticed that the keyboard buffer didn't work in IE 7. I would type on a slow laptop at the time and only every third letter would appear. Contacted MS and they just sounded dumbfounded so I tried others, found I like FF the best.
