firefox question........

Recommended Posts

Guest helloimtim

Gasp.........believe it or not I started to use firefox. Some of you know how much I used to HATE firefox. Well now I be a member of that cult. Wonder who I pay my dues to?  Must be some kinda jedi mind control trick. Darn you firefox.......Anyway I just found out the new firefox seems faster than my ie/maxthon browser. What I want to ask is this. Maxthon has what is called a simple collector. Its just a notepad with tabs that sits in the bottom of the browser. Handy little item. Does firefox have this, can you give me a link. If not any free software you can recomend. Like a sticky note pad that stays with the browser. Thanks.......Must use firefox.........must use firefox.........must use firefox......Darn you firefox

Firefox is open source code, so any flaws within the browser can be ammended (patched) by anyone that knows the source code and done more quickly than I.E..

Here's a link (also in the Firefox browser) where you can find nifty items to enhance Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/?application=firefox and here's a link for a 3D plugin: http://www.cult3d.com/download/viewer/win_mozilla.asp

It will be intresting if your able to pull it off and make it. Pretty handy item dont ya think. If you do and are able to make it please let me know. In the mean time I will look around a bit. Just please dont take this as sarcasim or anything. Hope you can and do make it and make it work. While maxthon is pretty much a MAJOR plugin for ie. I am just about willing to bet this can be  done. If they can make it work for ie I am sure you can do the same thing for firefox. Best of luck. Let me know I will be one of the first to try it out.

I have run a few dozen test (on testmy) of Firefox vs. IE6. IE has consistently been nearly twice as fast as Firefox on the 2992 kB download test. My IE has all the latest upgrades from Microsoft.

These results are a disappointment to me. I like some of Firefox's  bells and whistles and I am not a real Microsoft lover. But I can't ignore the speed difference.

Firefox is quite a bit faster than Netscape.
