    "Internet Explorer's slow :V" Really? How come for me then every time I boot Firefox it takes about a minute to open, whereas IE's open in about ten seconds? And if talking about general browsing: If you really can't wait .2 seconds more for your web-page to load, saving maybe one minute of time if you're online for about 4-5 hours a sitting, you've got to take a step back from the computer.

    "Firefox can do more :V" Really? Last I checked, it was all extra things you searched up and added to your Firefox Browser. And guess what? Internet Explorer can get those too.

    "Firefox has a spell check :V" Congrats, you just admitted that you need a spell check most of the time for your posts, and are too lazy (but then, you're also gloating about saving about 30-40 seconds of time each sitting from marginally faster page loading that I personally have never noticed, so I guess it isn't a surprise) to manually check your work.

    Yes, there are some good merits for Firefox over IE. However, most of the "praise" I hear on heaped on it and insults thrown on IE is essentially what I hear Mac users saying about PC's, but with "Mac" replaced with "Firefox" and "PC" replaced with "Internet Explorer".
    Attaman: Can I suggest trying either safari or chrome. each run quite faster than firefox does currently.

    Chrome, as it takes up the least screen space.

    Internet Explorer was based off a version of NCSA Mosaic developed by Spyglass Inc.
    Of the three, Netscape and Internet Explorer share a common history, and as such are capable of rendering non-standard or broken code rather similarly which might be one reason Firefox quickly gained a large share of the userbase.


    Considering how awful Internet Explorer 6 and previous were, particularly in relation to standards and security, that smugness was justified. Considering the rise in Firefox's popularity as a more secure alternative convinced website owners to fix their sites, and spurred Microsoft into finally getting off it's arse and updating Internet Explorer.. the team that develops Firefox has every reason to be proud of their accomplishment.. although I don't see any reason these days for Firefox users to be 'annoyingly smug' anymore, the goal was accomplished.


    Internet Explorer itself, is an integral part of the Windows Operating system, and as a result loads as part of Windows. When you launch IE, you're just loading a 600KB-odd sized wrapper application that leverages the same componant's that drive Windows Explorer, to load and render your web pages.

    Firefox cannot leverage this same advantage at present.


    All discussions asside, my personal preference for the moment, is Mozilla Firefox owing to a variety of extensions that are not available for the others.
    I do not like Internet Explorer, although v7 was a significant improvement and v8 has gone a long way into regaining some of my respect, it is still not without it's problems although I do use it from time to time for other reasons.
    I do not like Safari, it made doing what would be routine things on Firefox or Internet Explorer, cumbersome.
    I like Opera, it was my default browser on the Mac for years, though I moved back to Firefox for the add-on extensions.
    I haven't used Chrome yet, it need's to fix a few issues with the extensions to convince me to switch to it, asside from that, it has promise.

    On my phone.. I use Opera almost exclusively although Internet Explorer is also present there.. I have less reason to use it since Opera does a stunning job and I have not yet encountered any site that fails on Opera.
    Didn't know that - I am impressed.
    But once again, I don't know what I don't want to - as I know more about the B-2 spirit than I know about my favorite food.
    Once again, chrome has it's promises and I like it.
    Firefox is just not my kind of browser and it also has the word "fox" that completly urges me to go to the more technological or something word "Chrome". Also, firefox does NOT have any miku skin I know of, and that sucks. I also tried to be retarded once and downloaded internet explorer 1. Turned out I needed Windows 95 or lower.
    Anyway, thanks for the share of knogledge and I suggest you to move to Chrome fast 8D

    Firefox. It works best for me. It also has nothing to do with me being a furry if someone tries to pull that dumb ass card.

    Also: This has been done before recently in the bits & bytes section if I recall correctly.

    Except IE users are actually currently the major source of malware infections on the internet right now and have been for the past decade. :P

    "Internet Explorer's slow :V" Really? How come for me then every time I boot Firefox it takes about a minute to open, whereas IE's open in about ten seconds?
    I have this problem with Firefox where it takes 5-10 secs to start.

    Chrome takes less than one second to start. :P

    And if talking about general browsing: If you really can't wait .2 seconds more for your web-page to load, saving maybe one minute of time if you're online for about 4-5 hours a sitting, you've got to take a step back from the computer.
    So instead of "You can make this faster by using something else", it's "Well why don't you take a break from the computer". o_O OK then. All of this isn't even touching on the fact that both Firefox and IE's user interface freezes while rendering pages (IE in this case takes about a second, FF is a momentary hitch), which means you can't switch tabs, hit the back button, or do anything, really, while the browser is waiting on that page to render.

    "Firefox can do more :V" Really? Last I checked, it was all extra things you searched up and added to your Firefox Browser. And guess what? Internet Explorer can get those too.
    Internet Explorer's add-ons typically consist of toolbars and search redirection malware.

    Yes, there are some good merits for Firefox over IE. However, most of the "praise" I hear on heaped on it and insults thrown on IE is essentially what I hear Mac users saying about PC's, but with "Mac" replaced with "Firefox" and "PC" replaced with "Internet Explorer".
    It might be different if not for the fact that the browser is still swiss-cheese security-wise (in this case, it's by design) and is still the slowest around. IE8's better than its predecessors, but it still holds true. Honestly? In my case, it's not "Firefox is better than IE", it's "anything is better than IE". Chrome. Safari. Opera. Firefox. Anything.

    I honestly picked firefox... Safari is currently faster and does everything but one thing... It doesn't check the title of the url when it searches.. (in the url bar) if it did that. I'd be only on safari.

    FireFox and Safari.

    I used Safari when FF isn't working.
    But FF loads faster on my PC.

    Firefox because of things like adblock plus & noscript

    Sometimes lynx just to be a faggot or if I'm trying to browse the forums at work without being noticed, but I haven't done that in about a year and it's far too difficult anyway. (I hate you long signatures)

    Sometimes IE, Opera, Iron for testing stuff.

    And it's pretty much already been said, but fuck you IE users. I can just about tolerate IE 8 in terms of standards compliance, but I hate all the crap that's attached to it by default and I hate that it fucks up so much shit and randomly blocks access to certain files over the network but doesn't tell you it's blocked them, it just does does it and leaves you wondering what the fuck is happening.

    As you mention later in your same post, was. Many Firefox users don't seem to acknowledge there's a version of IE after 6.

    When I use a Mac, Safari is the main thing I use. While I can't download Chrome for my school computers (Plus the SDE program specifically relies on Firefox), I'll look into it for a personal computer.

    Safari is a... satisfactory enough, web browser. I can't call it the best, but it is good enough for general browsing, web usage, and so on. I'd rank it a 7/10, at least. It should also be noted that the main things I use Safari for are:
    1) Watching videos.
    2) Browsing forums.
    3) Flash games.

    I don't exactly test my web browsers to their limits.

    If you don't mind, would you mind citing a source? All I'm finding for Internet Explorer (v causing problems with is Adware, not Malware in general, and even that isn't being caused #1 just by IE.

    Essentially how it is for me with browsers. While it doesn't exactly bother me (oh no, teh seconds!), it does make a difference to me if someone's bragging their browser's faster than the one I'm fine with using.

    Pretty much the only internet add-ons I use are search bars. I'll use a few other things now and then, but I rarely need them so often don't take the effort unless it'll be vital down the road.

    Firefox, because it's available on all platforms I use. As well as Epiphany, because it uses the Gecko engine (Google Docs actually work! Although, the next release will be using Webkit.) and it doesn't have insane huge depends like Konqueror 4 does now (I miss Konqueror 3).

    Mostly Firefox, and on occasion SRWare Iron (Google Chrome with the spyware parts removed.)
