    Finally.. IE Free.. Thanks to Mozilla FireFox!

    Until now I stuck with my clogged up slow Internet Explorer because:

    a) it was there and besides.. everything is Microsoft anyway.

    b) I didnt care for Netscape or most of the Mozilla's Ive tried (many were no faster and had their own fluff and didnt show sites properly)

    So I get Hijacked by the dreaded 'About:Blank' homepage Malware/Spyware thing.

    I cant get rid of the damm thing and someone recommeds Mozilla FireFox .

    WOW!

    Fast fast fast.... no fuss, no muss - even imports your IE bookmarks.

    Did I mention fast?

    If you want to get yourself free from IE then run.. dont walk.. run to this site

    http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    (at worst.. I find pages made with 'Frontpage' tables will not always show up properly.)

    Thanks for mentioning those other benefits guys.. NO pop-ups and the tabbed windows options.
    (yeeha.. i havent played with all the stuff yet)

    Personally - I love the google box in the corner too

    No pop-ups anymore and lightning fast.

    Browser Heaven.. and I will never go back again either!

    I have Mozilla (FireFox is a smaller version of Mozilla) and yes, it's perfect... Really nice...

    Yeah, besides no pop-ups, Firefox also blocks ad banners and the like.

    I like Mozilla's built in download monitor.

    Note even if you are usingn mozilla, you will still want to apply patches for IE as they are realeased from M$ because other system components may use them as well.

    Good Point Xaioflux.

    Ive noticed my online banking seems 'confused' if I visit using Firefox, so sometimes I use IE.

    Sometimes you may actually want pop-ups too.
    In this forum, a new PM will want to pop-up in a new window and Firefox wont allow it by default.
    No problem becuase the PM will still be in your inbox.

    But just noting - sometimes there are 'good pop-ups'.

    Oh.. another tip:
    Dont forget that you may have to configure your 'window washer' or manually delete your history from FireFox / Mozilla yourself.

    This is mainly a 'heads-up' for those certain males who may not want a certain female user (or boss) to know certain things ;)

    Well, you can allow Popups from pages you want. Just browse through the preferences, you'll find it.

    @cortney: You have to download the plugin from macromedia.com in order to see Flash :)
