I used to have Mozilla as web browser and e-mail client. But since I dicovered <A HREF="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/" target="_new">FireFox</A> and <A HREF="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/" target="_new">Thunderbird</A> I never looked back. these 2 apps are reliable and stable and they are always up-to-date.

I wish more people to try it and use it. I'n my opinion, FireFox is much more solid and have much more feature than MSIE. And it's not true that FireFox is less "compatible". Any web site that is well designed runs flawlessly with FireFox. When web site looks weird with FireFox it's because it was badly coded. And I know what I'm talking about, I know HTML and I program web site in PHP/MySQL.

Firefox is HTML compliant yes, but that doesn't change the fact that there are sites that don't look good on it. You can blame it on the coders all you want(I do), it's unlikely they'll change just because you want them too though.

I know that bad CODERs will always exists and I can live with them! But for me, it's important to be compliant to standard. And Internet should be a standard place! I personnaly think that badly coded web site loose potantial customer.

I know that 95% of the people are using IE and I can't blame CODERs that have limited time/resources to not test their code on bunch of browsers. For me, compliance is a factor in choosing where to shop, read, interact on the WEB. Basically, badly coded sites or sites that don't render well on FireFox loose me. I never come back!

You mean compliant to a standard like how SQL vendors are?

ive really enjoyed firefox alot since i started using it (back when it was called firebird). its almost enough for me to compeltely drop IE, but there are a few quirks i hope get worked out by the time version 1 is released.

sometimes after prolonged use, i have noticed firefox can crash, especially when you have amny tabs open at once, which i do often. also, sometimes some java type websites will cause crashes sooner on firefox, or sites taht ten dot be memory intensive. id also like to see a way for you to close one offending tab or window without sacrificing all the windows. this happens wiht IE as well if it crashes, but id stil like to see soemthing like that lol.

i prefer firefox now and im sure ill be dropping IE completely soon, as there are only a couple sites i use IE to go to.

I use Firefox exclusivly and Thunderbird as well as gmail. The only problem I have with Firefox is that it isn't as compatable with CSS as MSIE is, however this doesn't affect functionality.

well im sure few people use as many tabs asi do for long periods as well. and the java issue only affects especially intensive sites with alot of cache invovled, but i have ah da few crashes with firefox with past versions. im running version 0.9.1 now and ill see if that has been fixed, so far its been solid for a week.

Thanks. I'll download tomorrow. Any thing I have to do before I dowmload? Or just let windows do it's thing?
July 14, 2004 4:05:39 AM

ThuderBird part of FireFox? Or seperate?

Nothing special to do! Download the installer and run the setup program! And enjoy it!

By the way, Thunderbird natively supports Bayesian SPAM filtering.

Both are stand-alone applications. In fact, Thunderbird and FireFox are source are use to build the Mozilla and Netscape Communicator suite.

The advantage of running FireFox and Thunderbird over Mozilla/Netscape is that you get the latest technology and features. Firefox and Thunderbird are updated daily! You can get the Nightly Builds of both applications on a daily basis, which is great!

Mozilla/Netscape suite are updated once in a while based on specific FireFox/Thunderbird milestones sources.

Again thanks for the answers. I will download FireFox and give it a run. Thanks for the links.
July 14, 2004 7:03:13 PM

Downloaded FireFox Then I uninstalled it. It loaded to my puter. I clicked on icon it took me to FireFox web site to download it. What the heck is that all about?
July 14, 2004 7:07:00 PM

Humm... The default "homepage" in FireFox is the FireFox homepage. You can change it to whatever your want!

Tools -> Options -> General

By the way, when FireFox is loaded, type "Ctrl-T". This open a new TAB! Tab browsing is the main reason why I love FireFox so much! "Ctrl-Left Click" on a link opens a new TAB with this link!

Have fun!

Alternet internet is getting too "in", time to return to netscape.
July 15, 2004 3:55:33 AM

Yes, I know, it was ment as a joke. Thought the lack of IE would have made that clear.
July 15, 2004 1:16:02 PM

I didn't knew about this one! It's good for the Mozilla community!
