    I have gone to the dark side

    i always used IE to browse the net but used firefox for emails & my web design ......

    i have now decided IE has bugged me enough and i am using firefox pernamently, although its a pain to get used to viewing hukd in it lol

    i still gotta use IE though cos a java applet a website i use, will not load in firefox..... unless someone has a cure for it ???

    try google chrome too, that's pretty good.

    One might argue you have come from 'the dark side'!

    thats what I was thinkin...lol...MS is the darkside....:)

    Firefox is how I roll too, I think it's great.

    Not bad when you think it's all for free

    I like Firefox - but my internet banking doesn't - it insists on me using IE.

    I don't know anyone that still uses IE, Firefox is fast becoming the standard browser, the only people that use IE are those that have not bothered to change it from the default on Windows when they buy their system.

    firefox rocks, been using it since like forever., I HATE IE with passion.

    firefox is my default set for opening msn email, and yahoo email etc but never felt the need to use it more than i did, but felt i needed a change for 2009 :lol:

    I prefer IE

    I find IE messes up code if I'm adding links to certain forum pages.

    Sometimes doubles up the code, leaving you to trim the excess off.

    Well rid of it - plus it looks naff up against FF aswell.

    Firefox is aces. I have to use IE at work and it's like stepping back in time.

    Although recently I have been using Google Chrome. Now that really is a good browser. It's still in beta mode so it's not finished yet but by Jove is it good!

    Nope. Me and the girlfriend both use Tesco online shopping a lot and we both use either FF or Chrome.

    I have been using FF for 3-4 years now and never once had to revert to IE

    Yeh, I like Chrome also.

    However there are quite a few things it doesnt do properly yet and need to open other browsers to do so. But it definately is a step in the right direction.

    Whats the difference, i use internet explorer. Is it faster or summit?

    True. But they must be working on it all the time because I am finding less and less errors with it these days.

    If it's the future of internet browsing then I am very impressed.

    Yes, it can be.

    It's also a lot more stable. It will crash a lot less than IE. Also, it is far more secure than IE, you are less likely to pick up nasty spyware etc when searching for naked pictures of Camilla Parker-Bowles.

    Plus it has lots of "add-ons" all of which are free. There are 1000's of user created themes to make it look "pretty"
