    Hey, I have been looking through some of your old topics you fine folks have had here, and was wondering

    Is this new browser Firefox really that great? I hate IE but have to use for work related junk all the time.

    So whats your honest opinion?

    I like it and work told us to change to Firefox recently due to too many security issues with IE.

    I like Firefox for a) the security reasons and b) all the funky extensions you can download to personalize your browsing experience. Extensions I have loaded:

    Download Manager Tweak
    Magpie
    Bandwidth Tester
    Allow Right-Click
    Image Zoom
    SpoofStick
    DictionarySearch
    downTHEMall!
    I must not fear!
    US Department of Homeland Insecurity Idiocy Level
    fireFTP
    ForecastFox

    I use the Noia Extreme 2.0 theme. I also use Thunderbird as my e-mail client.

    I don't use it simply because I can't use Google Toolbar with it.

    Really? How did you get it to work? I looked around the google website for a Firefox version of the toolbar but found nothing.

    Do you have a link?

    Firefox rocks. Get the Adblock extension.

    And I tweaked "I must not fear" to read:

    "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to heate. Hate leads to suffering."


    Nothing like renewing your geek card. Something that Astuart can't claim.
