My boyfriend is trying to find a good web browser. He recently asked me about using modzilla firefox. I have no idea how good it is but would like to be able to give him an answer. Any help or ideas would be very appreciated. Thank you :thumbsup:

Thank you very much. I was hoping you would say that seeing as how he was really excited that he might have found a good one. :thumbsup:

I think you will find a LOT of Mozilla fans around here. I have been using Mozilla for over two years, and downloading it (and subsequent versions) was the best decision I ever made.

Yep, Mozilla gets a :thumbsup: from me.

Just do not uninstall IE though. You may need it again for Windows updates.
