There are big differences between IE and Firefox.

Firefox is faster, more secure, better at displaying web pages and you can download thousands of themes and extensions to add functionality to the browser. IE7 is just a copy of a lot of Firefox's features such as tabbed browsing. Firefox 2 goes one step further and adds things like an inbuilt spellchecker.

And not a single fuck was given that day.

I'm downgrading to 1.5 probably, some annoying bugs probably specific to me which I don't like. And it's crashed twice already.
The upgrade has been rushed to be compete with IE7. The release is too soon and unnecessary.

https://addons.mozil...g/firefox/2324/ - Session Manager is pretty pointless for Firefox 2 since it has an in-built session manager.


https://addons.mozil...g/firefox/1291/ - TabSwitcher doesn't work on 2.0, so instead use SwiftTabs which is probably better anyway... the extensions allow you to make keyboard shortcuts for switching tabs much more easily, such as ctrl + right and ctrl + left etc.

@Chrisman: I noticed we're lacking some nice clean, unobtrusive themes. Here are some that I have installed, maybe you'd like to add them to the topic?

Blue Ice - A crisp, simple ice blue theme.
Qute - Simple and unobtrusive theme with clear, colorful icons.
Azerty I - Pleasant icons similar to the symbols used by IE or Qute
Azerty II - Pretty and pleasant icons. Each button was designed to symbolize its real function. Sometimes realistic or symbolic but always with merry colors and original forms.
Azerty III - Pretty and pleasant icons. Built to accompany Azerty 'mail.
Cylence - A link to many different colour variations of the default Firefox theme, the original one is my favourite.

Fire Fox is tight! I'm using it right now. It is faster than IE. Usually when I'm on this site with IE it's slow and some of the pages don't work, but with Fire Fox it's fast and it works........and all the buttons on the page work!

Well, I can't deny it does render far faster then IE7 does. But that's about the only thing about IE7 that bothers me.

Yeah that's the same thing i said. But since I downloaded it already I might as well use it. By the way, my IE isn't on my desktop. I have to click start because I accidently did something. So since Fire Fox is on my desktop I use it more.

I've been using Firefox for 3 years and I haven't had one problem with it so far.

When I downloaded Firefox 2, I was pretty happy with it. It took some time to get used to a couple things, but other than that I still think it was a good update. Though, one thing I didn't like about it was the default theme 2 uses because the colors of the buttons were really dull and boring for me for some reason. I usually don't care about the Firefox themes, but it was bad enough to make me change it. So, I use a theme called 'Opaque', which is the same thing except the colors aren't so dull. So, obviously I wasn't the only one that didn't like the default theme.

I also like the add-on StumbleUpon. I don't think I could last a day without it, it finds some pretty good sites. I recommend it to those who haven't tried it yet.

I don't mean to sound like an asshole, but it's "Firefox". (no space) And, your post was very vague. You could have told us what your problems were at least. Oh and, what do you mean by "them"? :blink:

What does it take to change to Firefox? does anyone know any errors or cons after install?

Which browser are you using now? Internet Explorer? If so, all of your favorites will be ported over if you let it. It will ask you when you first start Firefox. I haven't noticed any errors or cons after install. So, no worries.

Nope. As long as you confirm you want everything to transfer over. It's as simple as one click.
