Why Firefox?

So, oor Fluffy wanted to know why should she bother waiting hours to download it on dial-up?

I suppose the main reason I use it is security and privacy. Ebil Hax0rz always go for M$ stuff. Spyware does too. Example. That new firewall on Windows Service Pack 2 must be like a red rag to a bull. Spyware and virus writers will have a field day attacking it, same as they have with Internet Explorer and Windows. As soon as Thunderbird is working okay, I'm dumping Outlook.

The other reason is Tabs. It's a teeny tiny difference but once you use them you will wonder how you got along without it. I use IE at work and I'm always trying to open webpages in new tabs.

Of course, the only REAL reason I started using it is because it represents sticking two fingers up at Microsoft.

There, hope your happy! Now I sound like even more of a geek and corporate whore although some would say thats not possible...

Get Firefox!

Why are you still here? I said Get Firefox!

I will be honest... I'm a bit pissed off! I've just upgraded to v1.0 from v0.92 and it installed with all my bookmarks and options in exactly the same state as before and no restart. Now I'm going to be bored for the hours that I was expecting to be farting around making it work properly. Sheesh!

And another thing! Now that I'm REALLY impressed with it, I've gone and put a button on my side bar and been forced to do a post about it because it's so good. Thanks Firefox, now I look like a corporate whore sucked in by hype even though it a really good bit of software.

Get Firefox!

And remember kids, at the end of the day, it's only a fricken browser! No need to get worked up. You still needed M$ Internet Explorer to download it, didn't you!

Well, you may be able to tell that I got blogger's block again. Hey, it happens... I thought I would try something different so I've started a Moblog. I'll be able to dump images on it straight from my new mobile phone. It'll take a while to get going but I hope you'll like it.
