A friend of my told me that I should switch to Firebird as my main web browser, so I gave it a try. I have to say that I wonder why I didn't do it earlier. It is much better than Microsoft Internet Explorer in every aspect. The initial loading of the program is as fast as IE, then the benefits show. The page loading time is incredibly faster then IE. When I say incredibly I mean it loads tomshardware.com 2X faster than IE.

Then there is an integrated popup blocker which works like a charm. And the best part: you can custumize every part of it. From the skin to how link react. There a literally hundreds of plugins that you can add to it.

The bottom line: TRY IT. It's only a 6Mb download. You can get it at http://www.mozilla.org/

You are right Firebird is much better than Internet Explorer. Just a little update, Mozilla have released a new version and it is now called Mozilla Firefox 0.8. It's the same think as Firebird (some legal issues with the name)

Last time I tried mozilla, no matter what I did it would still insist on using quicktime as the default in-browser player for all sorts of media files that I didn't want it to. Until they change that - no mozilla for me.

yes i have dissacociated Quicktime from every media format, told mozilla to shove it up its arse and not use quicktime. removed the quicktime plugin from the mozilla direcctory.

and guess what. the bastard still wants to run quicktime.

I DON'T WANNA USE IT IN MY BROWSER I WANNA WATCH THE DAMN MOVIE FROM MY SOFTWARE
