This is kind of cool, you can watch Firefox getting downloaded in real time, not updates (supposedly) at the SpreadFirefox site. Nice to see that there is a real contender out there that people like to use! :slight_smile:


#2

I got my first version ( .7 ) a while back, and I am now using 1.0.3

I like it very much.


#3

I just don’t get it…why would people NOT use FF…i guess those are the nuts who love pop ups…


#4

I don’t get it either, I swear at least half of the people I try to get to use Firefox don’t ever try it, but the other half praises me for letting them know about it.

I started watching Tech TV (Screen Savers & Call for Help) before I got my first computer. Leo talked about it all the time. So Mozilla was the very first thing I downloaded. Best move I ever made!! People were constantly talking about pop-ups and stuff & how annoying they were. I would just laugh at them & tell them about mozilla. I don’t think I converted even 1 of them. Oh well, their lose!

Firefox ROCKS :smiley:

Tabbed browsing is neat, so you can have multiple pages open without cluttering the toolbar. Such a simple feature, but amazingly useful.

The only complaint I have is the Firefox bug (well known?) which causes the program to occasionally use 100% CPU when it views certain pages, usually with multimedia content.

Anyone know if this has been remedied in the newest release?


#7

:eek: what!!! it uses 100% cpu power for certain pages? How come? why would it need that much power?

By the way…FIREFOX rules!!! can’t browse without it!!! :slight_smile:


#8

I hate using IE in school so much with popups and the lack of tabbed browsing. But there is no way to install FireFox (as of yet).


#9

Way to go! I use FF on a daily base (together with Opera) and I think it’s worth the download. It indeed helps keeping the PC clean. And it has nice features!


#10

Would this work for you?

I’ll report back on Wednesday evening as that is my first day back.


#12

On my PCs, I use Firefox.

On my Macs, I use Safari. Best. Browser. Ever!


#13

Firefox is great (using it for this)- but many sites do not work with FF - they are written for IE, so rules of coding are ignored, and only IE will work properly. Also, many people are reporting problems with FF 1.02/1.03 and loading pages on forums they frequent (no, not saying this one). They have gone back to 1.00. It seems something has gone slightly awry in later builds of FF - and it needs a tweak.


#14

I just read tat FF will soon support SVG. That’s good news :slight_smile:


#15

What I really don’t understand is the people who try Firefox but then say they either hate it or much prefer IE.


#16

Those people knew what they would say before they tried it, very dismissive people.
