Browsers? IE or Firefox

Just want to know if anyone try the Firefox browser.. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and it's awsome.. a lot like IE but better.. download and take a look.. it will copy all your IE settings so u don't have to manually put in bookmarks and stuff like that.. plus it's free

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I DID love firefox but now it screw up on me all the time. It keeps shutting down and giving errors. Since it is fairly new perhaps its just a bug. Anyway, I look forward to the new version as it is a really cool browser

That is exactly the site in which it screws up for me. I think it has problem handling java. Sometimes it works but other times it does not.

Firefox is okay but Opera is faster and I like the look much better.

I haven't tried Avant, but I will.

It is most probably not a bug in Firefox browser but due to the laziness of the website designers who don't stick to the standard while setting up their websites. Most of them use activex and other browser-specific stuff which works only on IE. There is nothing the Firefox developers could do about webpages that do not comply with w3c's standards. So, may be when you find sites that crash FF or wouldn't open on it, may be you should email the website administrator to notify of their problem.
