FF and Opera, the best combo out there.

Seriously, anything is better than Bill Gate's ----

So because you hate Bill Gates, you hate Internet Explorer? I find IE as good as the person who is using it.

Yes, some sites you have to be careful of; but those are often sites you shouldn't be on anyways, so you deserve what you get.

I'm still a IE user, always have been. I don't get pop ups, or have any annoying tool bars either.

For those of you saying "Oh IE is teh best zomg!111oneoen"... plesae tell me what the crap are you high on? It's the dumbest thing that was ever created! I mean, why would you prefer IE over FF? IE doesn't give you tabbed browsing, a GOOD pop-up blocker, etc.! What the crap people?

(To those who think IE is the best, seriously. I think you're gay. Literally.)

I use IE7 beta sometimes, it isn't that bad, I don't get popups because i have SP2 and it does support transparent .pngs. As for IE 6, that is just plain stupidity. I highly suggest using FF or opera, even avant (which is IE based if I am not mistaken) is better than IE

Ahem.. Youre sounding kinda like this.. "ohemgeee FF is teh best u sux cuz u use sumthing else!!!11 im so 1337hax0rp0x0r and i pwnzorz u cause i use FF"

IE is not the dumbest crap ever created you are.Bill gates isnt evil your mom is..

For a time i really was a good browser it did alot of things better than its competitors til' it had no competitors but now its still an okay browser allthough there are many that are better than it doesn't make it the worst thing ever. You make a good point that IE doesn't have tabbed browsing i can't but agree that is a major flaw, but for the average user IE will do just fine without tabbed browsing and a bit faster speed.

And for one thing using gay as an insult is just stupid, and for another thing you can't make out someones sexual preferance from the browser they use unless its "GayFox - the browser for men who love men"(not saying FF is gay just an example) or something like that.

download the latest version of quicktime from apple. Also, I found that when i tried to use an older version i had to DL the windows 98/ME version because the 2000/xp version was junk. try to get the 98 version of quicktime, if not just try the newest version for xp. It worked for me(now, i regret it because myspace music is annoying)

Before you say, {insert fox fanboy quote here} look at this.

http://www.download.com/Avant-Browser/3000...tml?tag=lst-0-1 (http://www.download.com/Avant-Browser/3000-2356_4-10441347.html?tag=lst-0-1)

Try that browser, its IE based and its really good. Can do just as much as fox, skins, tabbed, popup blocker and whatever else you need.

BTW, I use fox everyday in conjuction with Avant Browser, it just pisses me off that everyone keeps on making the same topics over and over. TRY THAT BROWSER.

Actually, i browse the internet with no security but a firewall(which is just to protect my computer from those interested in getting into it).

and if you read the post above my original one, he was indeed saying that. As i said, its a matter of how knowledgable the user is. As for whoever said Internet Explorer doesn't have tabs, thats a matter of preference. I like it sometimes, other times i don't. If i need to use tab browsing, i use CrazyBrowser; which uses the same built as Internet Explorer, but offers tabbed browsing and a pop up blocker.

Its a matter of choice and what sort of sites you visit. Since i visit mostly forum-based sites, i don't have to worry about a pop up blocker. If all you do is jack off and visit porn/warez site..then yes, firefox security would be the best for you.

Well, I just use Firefox because I am used to it.

Internet Explorer is well, not bad, but its just a bit slower for me and is not as customizable as Firefox.

A browser really doesn't keep you safe from the really nasty stuff. I have to go to some sites that might have spyware, but that is why I have my trusty Nod32 AV / Firewall.

I don't understand why people still make these topics.

Whoever chooses to defend a program to the death (like some who have posted in this topic), is a tad too obsessive, if you know what I mean.

I second it, well said! Knowing you, .:[R]:., you always have the answer.

It's all up to choice. No one can make someone use any program, you can only suggest and bring out the main points. I am getting sick of people that start these dumb threads... Why can't everyone just chill? As long as we see the same content in a page, what should we care what they use?
