Compelling argument.

Then again, Firefox is totally vulnerable to tons and tons of exploits, doesn't support skinning, doesn't have 100s of extensions to further increase its functionality, doesn't support transparent .png files, doesn't check spelling, doesn't have a superior rendering engine, and isn't open source.

Oh wait.

So I'm forced to using FF2 now due to some problem with IE7. Rendering goes faster and stuff, but in general I hate it and would prefer IE anyday, even though it has quite some faults..

Um, well I had a problem with FF2. If any Page that is Flash Enabled, it closes my Window down. :( That sucks, but then the problem gets fixed and it's working perfectly.

But yeah, even IE7 is good too, but sometimes it just doesn't work for me sometimes.

IE7 shouldn't really allow you to let Viruses pass through your computer. If you have IE6, the chances are huge. But in IE7 you get this Pop up about keeping yourself safe. So basically, IE7 doesn't allow you to do that. ;)

I see on the poll that Mozilla and FireFox are on different lines. Isn't named: Mozilla FireFox the browser or there are different?

Tell me please. ;)

It has some exploits fixed but still more than FF2. IE7 is also naggier and generally more of a pain in the ass.

Firefox was originally just a separate project from Mozilla. Mozilla was a HUEG browser, containing an email client/large download manager/etc...Firefox was to be a small lightweight browser alternative to Mozilla but then it pwned everything and the rest is history.

Ok, thanks for the information chris. Never knew this. I have on my PC IE7 too. Sometimes IE7 is better than FF, but sometimes it is opposite. I've heard of Opera browser, I had it lately but started to be useless so I deleted it. Was kinda good.

IE can't be disabled cause its intergrated into the OS. Try shutting it down in Windows task manager and your account will fuck up and you'll be forced to restart.

Avant is shit*. It requires IE6 (at least) installed, so therefore only works on Windows. And what's more, it uses the Trident rendering engine (which IE also uses) so all the websites that IE fucks up also appeared fucked up in Avant.

*In my opinion.

By the way, Flock is good. Does anyone here use it? It's a customized Firefox, basically enhanced for heavy users of social networking sites, be it flickr, facebook last.fm, myspace, photobucket... whatever, integrates well apparently. I don't use enough of those sites frequently enough to warrant changing though.
