I have a laptop that seems to crash IE every day, because of vista.

I want a change.

Two things I want are a good password remembering system and one that will work on every site that I try.

Thanks

Firefox.......

I have both, and prefer Firefox 3. But, I also really, really like Safari. It may be best to download a couple, and see which you personally prefer.

im an oem junkie so ie is the best for me.

i almost got swayed to safari cos it rules, but i had issues with java on that.

question should be, why is ie7 crashing? ? I dont think vista is the problem. I have 3 vista machines, 1 since its release last feb, and not one has crashed on ie7. What pages are you looking at? could that be the issue?

Firefox, the mechanism for remembering passwords works quite well.
Opera just doesn't feel right for some reason when I use it.

is safari run by apple?

I was going to download both and try, but i really wanted some peoples opinions that have been using one or the other over time.

thanks


yes, Safari is apples (i think). Thats what i use and it is pretty good. Build in spell-check is very useful.

Firefox operates just like IE just without the problems or the crashes.

Firefox all the way. But if not, Opera! Just get rid of clanky IE!

Opera - pc
Firefox - laptop.

And a million times better than IE. That was the main reason I switched permanently to FF.

see I dont see that, firefox isnt as streamlined as IE, plus whenever i install it, it has to download plugins etc all the time. why cant it just work?

When most people try Firefox they literally to permanently switch, you cant go wrong with Firefox!

What do you mean by streamlined? IE is basically bloatware to a lot of people, compare the download size of IE to FF. I must admit is is irritating when you get the download plugin box appear (and there's never one available for the site you are on for some reason :lol:), but tbh it rarely happens to me. I think what most people forget is that IE has (or had) pretty lax rules on what it did download, so a lot of the time it downloaded plugins in the background. All good except it also liked to download trojans in the background too ;-)

to my mnd this is such a subjective thing, one person will swear blind X is better whilst the next person would rather use pen and paper thant 'that' browser...
#15
Preference does very much come into it, my choice is Opera as I like the polished and complete feel it has straight out of the box with little configuration required.

I find IE faster and more stable, but use firefox for DLs and image viewing
#17
It's all the stuff you can do with firefox that I like.

I have a dictionary plugin that tells me if i'm spelling a word wrong and a one for Japanese text as well. I also have NoScript installed so only websites I trust can fully load. Also Firefox (Mozilla) is used as a platform by some software like Celtx.

File : Import

To open multiple pages, bookmark them in a favourites folder then click bookmarks, highlight the folder and press your scroll wheel button (if you've got one). Opens the lot in one hit ;-) Else you can right click and open all in tabs.

FireFox is the way forward...

The words "can" and "worms" spring to mind with this thread title. :giggle: Fanboys at the ready!!

"Firefox FTW, obv." ;-)

i like seamonkey, does everything u need from a comms pack, its fast, supports multiple profiles (1 for me, 1 for mrs) and can use the excellent mozbackup to keep me "synced" on any machine i choose

Firefox 3

Fanboy alert fanboy alert.

FF is not the perfect browser, far from it but it's alright.

It also has some weird cult following............................ of which most of you above are part of! :giggle:

Couple of things I do to all my Firefox's.

Go to the View > toolbars > customise toolbars and drag the 'new tab' icon on to the navigation bar. Then install the extension that opens the homepage when a new tab is opened. Find it much easier if I need to check something on say Wikipedia and can just click for a new tab with the least amount of effort.

Also you can stick your sites you visit everyday in the same folder on your bookmarks then click 'open all in tabs' to have them all open in the same browser.

Firefox non other -- plus if you google to speed it up you can get it to load web pages liek 3xfaster
#28
Firefox and Safari for its 'private browsing' feature. hehehe.
#29
Give opera a try as well, they won't cause any problems with each other (and it's much nicer than firefox).

sorry need to ask again when i clicked on Home in IE it loaded up 4 tags, is there not a way to do this on FF? but just one click not the bookmarks, folder, open all tags option.


Tools > Options. In the General tab where you see 'homepage' simply put a "|" between each URL like so

http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc78/theungreat/FF_openMultiTabs.png?t=1214069279

and each should open in it's own tab.

Firefox 3 all the way!
Safari and Opera are also very good! Alot better than IE but I like all the Firefox Plugins! Some are really useful!
