Hey everyone, I was just wondering, what is your favorite feature about Mozilla Firefox. For me, it would have to be the spell check feature because since I type fast, I make a few typos sometimes. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I don't really like Internet Explorer anymore. Also, I am more used to Mozilla Firefox, it is also safer against browser hijackers.

what is your favorite feature about Mozilla Firefox.

That it is not deeply and parasitically entrenched in the Windows OS and can be uninstalled very easily, when totally disgusted with it. And another browser can easily take it's place and work quite nicely.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

I have IE6, FireFox and OPERA.
My favourite is Opera.has 400 odd skns,easiest of them all to use, and has Speed Dial.
FireFox requires too much Navigatig and all the Plug Ins, Not for me.
Also had Netscape which I liked,but no longer supported from Feb 1st 2008.

The ability to tailor a browser to fit your needs (BBCodeXtra, for example), to expect continual improvements and security patches, and to avoid a MS product is matched only by Ff's security.

FireFox hasn't been without it's own problems of late, with a number of updates in Quick succession.
I personally don't think any Browser is Bullet Proof. Just whatever Browser, one is comfortable with.

Of course, DSTM, your absolutely right, no browser is 100% Bullet Proof.

I quiet like Firefox. I like how it has many addons that are quiet useful.

But starting from a few hours ago, Im pretty much an Opera user now :D

I really like Firefox's extensions, I enjoy the different themes and such. Plus, when you click on a link in Firefox, there's no annoying 'click' noise.
I hate my life :(

Yeah, that click noise was annoying. I also like how I can have multiple tabs open as soon as Firefox starts, very handy.

I like how you can skin-it with holiday themes.
It makes for a much more enjoyable browsing experience. :thumbsup:
