Yes, or keep them both. You don't have to have just one or the other.

Yes, use both. OCCASIONALLY some sites do not like Firefox. But overall, I like Firefox far more. Plus, Firefox has SO MANY cool addons.... it's great!

They both suck, in their respective ways :sqbiggrin:

Both fall prey to the "too many cooks in the kitchen" thing, IMHO.

I love FireFox, but it is a big memory hog. IE just sucks. Sorta the lessor of two evils... ;)


A program should be written and designed by one person. Then you know where you stand.

Rick : There's a rising third isn't there? Fairly new? Safari?

And there's Opera.

Never tried either. Any intel on those two?

Opera isn't bad, it did have some CSS issues but it's been a while since I have used it.

They're all Mozilla based -- read FireFox.

I started writing a new browser last year, but got interrupted by the response to Rockit 4 (it's good, when things go good). So anyway, I spun off a company called Moonshine Software (that is a trademark BTW), and it shall be working on the browser stuff.

Moonshine will become our parent company in the future, and hopefully, the browser will live up to it's not yet mentioned name (if yer a Southerner, you might figure out what the name is)... :sqbiggrin:

Rick: George Jones sing a song about it?
Cap, you know I am open to thoughts... :)

I have some ideas (one in particular), but if you've got a good one, I'm all ears... :sqbiggrin:

Wheeeeewwwwwwwwwwww. White Lightnin'!

(Assuming that's what moonshine is called down south.)

Rip your face off stuff as I'm sure you already know. Makes fresh brewed saki seem like 1.2 beer.

Firefox here, not so many problems. Every time I use IE I get blasted by pop ups and other junk.

It is available for PC as well.

I tried it when I was trying to decide which browser to use, and did not like it at all.

I went with IE simply because Firefox crashed about 10 times in a row when I used it, and I really don't have the patience to deal with stuff like that (shocking, I know :sqlaugh:

I support multiple browser combinations for my web application. A majority of browser issues are resolved when the user switches from IE to Firefox. This isn't because Firefox works better, it's because of the add-ons to IE that break it. These add-ons include popup blockers, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and enhancements.

The latest version of Opera is beautiful, compact, and fast.

Safari for Windows continues to be somewhat buggy. Most Mac users I know use Firefeox instead of Safari.

I just switched to Firefox this year. I love it. I think it's built better and runs better than IE. However, I have heard the opposite. So I think it's a swing and a miss for some people. If your current browser is screwy, then you have other options. Firefox incorporates apps and skins and stuff like that, and you can update them all at once. Small little things that you start enjoying. I think it's faster too. Plus it has been proven safer.

Use Firefox. If you run into a website which doesn't like Firefox, open the site in an IE Tab (a Firefox addon).

Brian:

I used to have to use the IE tab for a few sites. Now the only one that has required it in quite a while is Windows Update. Are there still some folks designing for only IE?
