It's about time Microsoft did something about the problem with IE.

I don't care about what MS has done to do something about their insecure product called "IE" because it will always be full of security holes no matter how MS shores up their product.

it just takes one hacker, one asshole, who'll find a flaw and exploit it, its the same with the whole windows platform, no matter how much they update, add security software etc, there will always be a flaw somewhere which will be found and exploited; i like my firefox and its gonna take a helluva lot more than a few security patches to persuade me to use ie7.

Yeah, I like Fire Fox.

The fact that IE is integrated with Windows makes it more vulnerable to hackers.

Firefox will always be the best, no matter how many times IE will update, there's always a problem in it... but Firefox is still the best.

I dont use Mozilla, I personally use Opera. I have tried to use firefox but it seems to ruslower than my Opera does. I have trid your about:config for the pipeline tweak but it didnt seem to help. I doubt it is my machine but it seems that something may be up since everyone here raves about it.

the problem is that micro**** put it in with the windows packages. Sure they helped the idiots have a browser but they also made it so people can easily hack computers since IE is the main browser (not many people know that IE has security holes! LMAO)
5 ways that FireFox pwns IE :P
1. It isn't part of a system installation package.
2. You can install and uninstall it all you want (IE has some serious grudges if you try to take it out _)
3. FireFox has multi-tabbing and the ability to add extensions which make this more secure and more customizable than IE
4. Firefox has is open source meaning that people can look for exploits and tell the makers other than IE which keeps the source to itself meaning that hackers would hold a bit of a grudge and exploit the **** out of it :P
5. FireFox always you to go RIGHT into it's settings (about:config) and edit them to make ti more faster and better :D

firefox is so much better than IE
but one thing i wished it could do is the ability to display every page correctly like IE does, but for all the other things FIREFOX > IE

I like the extensions on Firefox. The Foxy Tunes are great. No need to have an extra window open when listening to music.

Hey can anyone tell me how to move the yahoo companion toolbar in FireFox cuz If I cant move it next to the next, back, refresh, and stop buttons then Im getting rid of it...wastes too much space

khao Ie is the one that loads the pages wrong...
FireFox is better than IE by lightyears...
At least on FireFox they allow you to edit a lot of settings (and allow things like pipelining and tons of other stuff) :P

DGamer thats the opposite of me lol
I only have IE on my PC because...
1. My dad uses it and is too stubborn to use FireFox _
2. Visual Basic is pretty clingy to IE _
3. Parents would moan anyway _

If you had your own computer problem 1 would be non existant.

ok here is the way to fix that.

replace the FF icon with the IE icon.

get skin theme which looks like IE.

you father is now tricked into using FF and preserving your computers life(or atleast limiting the number of times you need to use the system restor disc)

Now hold on a sec, the problem with IE? I think you mean problems, my friend.

.PNG transparency....
Security (= LOTS of probs)
no tabs


Sounds like more than one to me.

Anyways, I'm not going to IE.

02-24-2005, 06:45 PM
IE in itself is a problem, so long as firefox is used by less than a mojority of the people and is up to date, I will use it.

.:Pix:.
02-24-2005, 06:49 PM

Most likely, many of havn't heard of 'Avant Browser (http://www.avantbrowser.com/) I prefer it over FireFix because of the more features, takes a bit to get used to but for me, I like Avant better than FF.

GeoTube
02-27-2005, 11:18 AM
Avant Browser is as secure as Internet Explorer
LMAO!
thats just saying that your product has security holes all over the place.... like a mesh grid :P

02-27-2005, 11:31 AM
:o I just suprised myself and found out Avant is based on IE
