Re: Firefox is really great

said by floydb1982:

Internet Explorer has always been the best web browser ever in my opinion.

Can you explain better, as in tell us why you think IE is better? Just saying "IE has always been the best web browser...." doesn't really say anything.

He's referring to a page that hasn't been updated since 2007 and contains its own lies and myths. It's well known among web developers for that.

Here's a more truthful page that no one can deny: »people.mozilla.com/~prouget/ie9/

It's old and outdated. I chose one add on that was listed as a security risk (Greasemonkey) and it was from years ago, long since fixed with a patch.

Not currently reliable information IMO.

Anyway, still love Firefox!

Personally, IMO, I think Browsers are a personal preference. The majority of people don't really care about a Browser being "blazingly fast". So, your Browser of choice opens 1/2 sec faster, Big Deal.
Sometime its difficult to explain why one becomes "attached" to a Browser even though others may hate it.
I, personally, like FireFox because of my familiarity with it and the Add Ons which I am used to.
If I use Chrome and/or IE I feel uncomfortable. Everything, I'm familiar with is, in the wrong place. But, maybe, if I was using IE, on a consistent basis I would feel the same way.

I've been preaching that for years.

It's amazing how many people claim that's their sole purpose in using any one browser. I think it's cause they need something to say to look like they know something.
