Switched to Firefox six months ago, have not touched the IE icon since. Tell your sister that in a recent test, those using Firefox had 40% fewer cavities than those using the leading brand :thumbsup:

Ditto except I haven't used IE for like a few days for Windows Updates. I wish they would make a version of Windows Updates for Gecko based Browsers.

Firefox has helped me get rid of my spyware problem. Infact I run ad-aware a lot less now because I get so little when I check it!!!

I have used firefox since version 0.91. It beats IE any day!

I will take any opportunity to say how much I love using Firefox compared to IE. I was glad to kiss that hanging thing good bye and now only use it for Windows Updates. I even got my Mom to use Firefox and she likes it very well.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Internet Explorer is your friend.

Its a well known documented fact that IE users are Courageous, Strong Willed, Outgoing, Unafraid To Take Risks and More Likely To Succeed.

Nine out of ten Rocket Scientists and Nasa Engineers recommend IE over other leading brands.

FireFox is for Wimps. :thumbsup:

We ain't afraid of no steeenking spyware.

Unless your like your computer locking up, crashing, being infected with a virus, and dying on your all the time I would recomended it strongly. No browser can compare in safety. However FF is kinda slow, but I'd wait all day for FF to load b4 I went on the internet.

Sorry to say this to all of IE fans out there but it looks like IE is losing the battle. ALSO sorry about the spelling mistake, The first choice should be MOZILLA FIREFOX. This there any way that i can change it (or a mod can change it for me).
