    Yeah I agree with C4K...since getting into using Mozilla, I wouldn't go back to IE unless I was using a brand new computer....and even then I'd make sure to download Mozilla as soon as I could. Its much better.

    Why is Mozilla better? Is it faster? More reliable? Or just cooler looking?

    I'm still using IE 6. I use it because I do web design as my hobby, and I want to see the stuff I make as most web surfers will see it. Since most users still use IE, I do too. While I don't design for IE exclusively (I design to standards), I am most concerned with how it will look in IE because that's how most people will see it.

    IE 6, for the same reason as Chris'. Web design.
    I tried Mozilla, but, I did not like it. It does not display the tables and table borders, and the background images. So, I took it off my computer, but, it left some of its chrome files in my computer which I did not see, and soon these started to affect the chrome files of my Netscape and I took Netscape off (never liked Netscape anyway).

    Now I only have Opera which I use to surf, and I LOVE it !!!!

    BroChris,
    Same as c4k, security, my company will not allow me to run a machine using IE or Outlook on their network. For obvious reasons, we have not been impacted by any of the worms or viruses of late.

    If you are web developing to standards, you shouldnt have a problem with other browsers. But than, Microsoft doesn't develop their software to standards, so therein lies the problem.

    I find many features in mozilla that IE just doesn't touch for browsing, tabbed browsing, quick proxy changes, tons of great extensions for controlling winamp, BBcode shortcuts, and hundreds of others. In addition to being more secure, its open source.

    How would the following compare to each other?

    1. Mozilla Suite
    2. Firefox
    3. Opera

    I realize that Mozilla and Firefox are part of the same company, that Firefox does not come with email but is only a browser, and that Opera comes with ads unless you pay $39.

    Something to consider is that Opera does not support ActiveX. This is for security purposes and many surfers may not even notice the effect. But, some sites will not work properly or at all as is this case with Gmail.

    Mozilla will likely become more focused as the browser for portable devices (PDA's, cell phones) as it has a relatively small footprint. Firefox will ultimately be the desktop option from that group.

    I enjoy Opera, but the ActiveX issues is the hitch in the giddy-up for me. I do like how they incorporate email (using views vs. folders) and the chat client; but, now that I have begun using Gmail, and I use Trillian for IM/Chat, I am switching to Firefox. Most of the surfing options I enjoy with Opera I am able to replicate with extension for Firefox... most.

    I only use IE for some web-aps at work and I am finding that Firefox renders those rather well also [​IMG]

    With the addition of these two extensions I am now able to fully replicate in Firefox all of the functionality that I used in Opera:
    Session Saver
    Focus Last Selected Tab

    as posted by pinoybaptist...

    well, I'm looking at my website, which has tables and table borders, thru mozilla's firefox and the tables and borders are showing just fine.

    Just installed firefox a few days ago. Still trying to decide if I like it or not. Seems to be okay, but the jury is still out.

    God Bless!!!

    DOn't worry, Adam. Within a couple of weeks, you won't even remember what IE stands for.

    I've been using Firefox for over a year now, and I will never go back. It is just too streamlined and easy to use. The only time I ever use IE anymore is to update Windows (you have to use IE, or Microsoft won't let you update).

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    I made my own browser in Visula Basic. But it pretty much did nothing special. So I now use opera
