Firefox

Recommended Posts

i use it and its better than IE. the only thing i dont like is my lessened test scores... :(

You know, this is funny because some guy over at abit forums was talking all sorts of crap about IE. I directed him to the thread here where Firefox scores sucked...

Heck, I tested Firefox myself against IE and had HORRIBLE results.

Soooo, today I was setting up a new computer for a client and we got to talking about Firefox. I told her that it was decent, except that the download speeds STUNK compared to IE. Regardless, I had installed it on her new computer because she liked it.

I brought up www.testmy.net and showed her the IE scores. Then I launched Firefox and made myself look like a complete jack-hole....At this particular time, Firefox 1.0 ran more than twice as fast as IE did...and the score was higher than any speed I have pulled off on my computer!!!!!

Nice to shoot yourself in the foot like that.

Well maybe they tweaked something, I could have SWORN that Firefox was running slower...much slower and there was a thread here about it.

I tested it myself many times and it ran slow. I even setup a linux box and tested it and it ran slow.

I've got 1.0 on my linux machine now and it's BLAZING....I don't know...

Dude you fucked something up in your IE... hehe, I don't know why you get those scores.. lol. But Firefox seems to be reporting the correct score for you. Stupid ass Internet Explorer :roll:

Okay, for me... ever since FireFox 1.0 I have got better scores... and now use Firefox fulltime because of spyware... simply because threats are... well... written for vulnerabilities that are in Internet Explorer. I am friggen DONE with IE, until Microsoft fixes that shit... I am fuckin' sick of spyware/adware/malware ---- we should not have to scan our god damn computers 10 times a week, I am done blaming the people that put the spyware out... it is the friggen browsers fault.

Do yourselves all a favor and try Firefox --- http://www.mozilla.org/

I personally like the following skins for Firefox (both small, less invasive skins)

    [*] Littlefox

    [*]708090

    [/list:u]

    I have been running Firefox now for 4 weeks and have yet to get ANY spyware... also have yet to see ANY problems, I did however have to tweak the options a bit because I hate the feel of some of the stuff.... and don't llike the download manager... In all the browser has a more 'in control' feel to it, great for power users.

    --- so scrap my initial review on this, it is much better in the new version.
