    I was just wondering if you guys have tried this out. It's a browser just like internet explorer but it's quite a bit more secure, and everything loads faster. I just tried it out today and i like it way better. I read an article that a 15 year old programmer helped out with this. Just curious if anyone else has tried it out.


    Firefox

    I tried it when it was still a Beta, I really liked it, but there were some things it wasn't supporting at the time, like flash and so on, but now that it's out, I plan on giving it a try again. They guy who lead the charge for firefox is 19 now I think, there is an article in this month's WIRED about him.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    AE, does it handle flash and other plugins ok now? that was my main reason for not using it. I really liked Tabbed web browsing, that was, in a short, the coolest feature introduced to a computer in the last 5 years.

    Yeah, i like it alot better than ie. And yes RamPuppy, it does support flash now. There are lots of extensions you can download as well, although I haven't really played around with them much.

    I use Firefox all the time... And barely ever come to a page that I need to go over to my IE... The plugins auto install when needed... The add in feature that I use most is Adblock. It's nice to control what ads I see and which I don't. I keep trying to remove the ad on top of my AIM window... haha

    Firefox all the way. It's more crisp and friendly to users, I find.

    Yep, this came up a few months ago... some thread titled "Internet Exploder" I think LOL

    Firefox is slick, try it and you will never go back- the baseball bat comment above is pretty much perfect
