Firefox question

7 replies 1 views Edited Nov 30, 2006
I currently have IE7 and have always read about how Firefox is alot better than IE,it has peaked my curiousity and was wondering what makes it better? Let me know your opinions on it and I'll make my decision to get it from there.

ok here's what I don't get.
 
Safer. I use IE6 alot. yet only 2 viruses within 2 years no firewall and an outdated norten program
 
Plugins. may look cool but it slows the program/Computer Down.
 
Runs faster. I tryed FF1.5 and 2.0 and My IE6 was much faster then both. so i don't get that part.
 
(TabBrowsing) supposidly it's Better. I don't know I turned that off on my IE7 i find it annoying I'd rather have everything on the Menu Bar.
 
 
Just my openians.

pop ups, tho, i never get, or viruses
plugins dont slow my computer down at all.. if anything its faster because i can have everything ready, so i dont have to type in addresses or things like that
and 2.0 does run faster, not much, but a bit faster
tabs are more of a personal thing, tho.. my sister hates em, but i love em :smileytongue:

Plugins. may look cool but it slows the program/Computer Down.-not mine...not at all, you must have a slow comp then.
 
Runs faster. I tryed FF1.5 and 2.0 and My IE6 was much faster then both. so i don't get that part.-i used to use ie and i am inpressed at how much faster ff is
 
(TabBrowsing) supposidly it's Better. I don't know I turned that off on my IE7 i find it annoying I'd rather have everything on the Menu Bar.-some ppl may hate it but i ove having just one ff open at the bottom and just click the different tabs
 
 
Just my openians.


those are my OPINIONS

So I take it that it all depends on the kind of computer that you have?
