...uhhh...wtf. I thought Mozilla and Firefox were the same thing, "Mozilla Firefox"... :huh:

I use MSN. :thumbsup:

Originally, their browser was called Mozilla and it was similar to Netscape...included an email client, etc...but it was discontinued after the success of Firefox...which was basically originally an attempt to have a really small (in size, memory usage,etc...) browser that was also very customizable and extensible.

How do I know if I use 7 or 6? Lol I dont know which Internet Explorer thing to vote on...

Click 'Help' and then 'About' in the top toolbar and see which version you have...God help you if it's version 6.

I have Mozilla, and always had. I just go some interest, especially when the Apple update included Safari. Anyways I'll stick with Mozilla.

That's because Apple is evil, all their shit should be separate, why do I have to install Quicktime with iTunes, etc...and now Safari? No thanks, I'll stick with Winamp, VLC, and Firefox.

I use Firefox. The UI is less crowded and doesn't automatically installs NineMSN and Yahoo toolbar crap without my permission. IE7 takes an eternity to load however I like the method of downloading on IE better then Firefox.

Yeah I fucking hate when that happens, installing Itunes + Quicktime.

Mozilla is the full browser, including the email client((Thunderbird)), like Chris stated. I had it originally, but it took more time to load. I prefer just having Firefox, because I don't need Thunderbird or anything else.

There's also a pretty good browser out there called OffByOne. It only takes up little over 1MB and loads text only. No backgrounds, etc like that but you can enable pictures if you want. Not the best browser but hey, I like it.

Also, since when did Limewire Pro have built in IE7 into it?

Because Internet Explorer is considerably harder to use than most other browsers, considerably slower at rendering than other browsers, and crashes a lot more than other browsers.

lol . harder to use? maybe thats why i like it, i have the brains to do everything myself and most of the time want to. which is why I hate Windows Movie Maker, it does loads of things for you.

I've had more crashes with Firefox and Opera than Internet Explorer and I hardly ever use them. They are just browsers to me and Simplicity is bliss. Firefox usually becomes slower anyway coz it has so many Plug-Ins doing work. Plus the time it takes to load >.<

anyway I think the other browsers are good to. Just each do different things in different ways.

I highly doubt that. Internet Explorer crashes a lot more often and viruses, trojans and all that junk target IE over Firefox. And you can remove plugins, did you know that?

Deji, you don't make sense. Stop being so cocky, you have brains to use an Internet browser. Whoop dee do! Did you know everyone else on the Internet knows how to use IE too? And because we are so busy with important things to do we prefer easy and efficient products. And maybe it's you who doesn't realize that Firefox pwns IE.

Well, in my eyes, Firefox and Opera have pwned IE. It's because Microsoft have engraved IE in conjunction with so many applications that come with Windows that it is still in the market.

Also, Deji, after what you've said, I still fail to see why you prefer things the hard way. You didn't need to say that IE was the best and I don't intend to ask because it doesn't move the argument forward. Please make yourself clear and stop assuming that I am here forcing my opinion onto others when they most likely already agree with me that Firefox beats IE.

If you use IE6... God help you...

IE6 is complete bull crap. That's usually the only browser that fails when I'm using it. IE7 is okay, I have no problems with that, but IE6 craps on me whenever I'm going on sites that have transparent images, it never is actually transparent, it's just an image without the transparency. .PNG Images take longer to load as well.

Really? Considering the marginal CPU use that plug-ins take up is only taken up when the plug-in does actual work. And unless your computer is incredibly shitty, Firefox shouldn't take that much longer to load than IE if you're using Windows.

Google Chrome

It has very very awesome tab system, nice bookmarking, excellent iGoogle, best browser for youtubin'. :worship:

Pity about its retarded downloads system. :pissed:

It also dosent have some of the silly plugins (which do nothing basically) which slow other browsers down, so it is very very very very fast on Windows XP (and probaly Shitta/Vista too).

I don't use IE that much,but it doesn't crash.And can open sites which just keep loading,like in FF and Opera(sorry opera,but you're still my favorite)

Although I use FF when the Opera crashes.

I use IE also when i watch porn because rarely anyone uses it,and when i'm done,i don't leave traces.

IE is the worst browser for porn since it's so insecure and if you don't go to reputable sites you're bound to get viruses. Firefox with good extensions, or Safari, are easily the best porn browsers.

Does Firefox have the Incognito???

Probaly not.

Chrome has a very clean, sleek appearance, and the file/edit kinda menu is hidden into 2 convenient buttons.

Bookmarking is the best with all the main websites you can stick up on the top, and you can change the shape of typing boxes!!

Orly? i never saw that... what menu is it in?

And fail @ spilling hot beverages in your lappy. I once drooled in my keyboard, cause i was drunk, laughing and had no real control of my lower jaw.

Download the beta from their website, install it and when it's done open it up and go to Tools > Private Browsing. Makes browsing porn so much more easier.
