    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to know if anyone has had good experiences with other internet browsers other than Internet explorer? I've been contemplating using another browser after all of IE's problems with security, etc?

    Let me know what you all think!

    Thanks!

    Mozilla Firefox. I have noticed a huge difference in the spyware I receive. Even if that doesn't mean much to you, it loads pages much, much faster.

    Depends what you are looking for, Mozilla is a browser that has everything, navigator/mail/newsgroups/addresses/download manager/IRC(Chat). So if your looking for the whole thing, I would suggest Mozilla. Firefox is only the navigator and Thunderbird is an e-mail client. Both Mozilla and Firefox run very much better than IE and even have an automatic feedback feature that tells the people in charge what happens when it crashes. It is open source, but works with linux, mac, and windows all very well. Thanks andrew for the work you did on the site to make it work with mozilla.

    What was the problem with Mozilla and this website. You are probably talking about a different Andrew, I think abaxter is named Andrew. Was it a javascript issue?

    There is one nice thing about IE though, spyblaster works with it, and not .9.x firefox and that blocks a lot of spyware that even gets through in firefox.

    Do you think IE will ever have tabbed browsing, and other good features found in Firefox?
