Spread the word - spread firefox

Foeni 01-12-2004 09:13 PM

Haven't there already been a thread about Mozilla Firefox? Still.. I use IE, cause I can't get flash working when I use Firefox. I've tried just about everything, also visited their own help forum.. I guess it has something to do with me using Windows ME :(

Flightfreak: You're just slack with your website designs as they don't always fit both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox :P

For some reason IE still goes faster than Firefox, but I use Firefox 100% of the time except for school. If you can get education institutes to use Firefox you'll see a rapid boom in popularity. You could ask most of the classmates I have and they wouldn't have a clue what it is. We still use pathetic IE, but I plan to change that when I get my laptop for next year :)

Where is the love for Netscape? Hoot Hoot 7.2 represent!

*just realized I made an ass out of my self*

Hey look over there....

*runs away, then crys in the corner*

Yes Window Millennium sucks. But my computer is fucking slow, so I have to use a fast OS, and ME is fast. XP is much better, but very slow on my computer.. Therefor I use ME.

The Netscape Navitgator was after a hard struggle beaten by IE. This is some years ago, I don't remember how it is.. I tryed it on my school 5 years ago...

They both download porn at the same speeds, so I just use Internet Explorer. :/

We may not agree about the Earth's environment...but we agree about the web's environment. Firefox uber alles!
The only thing I have noticed is that sometimes when I click on one of my bookmarks, it says it can't find it. And then it does find it. But, it beats having my browser hijacked constantly when using IE.

I use Internet Explorer and Netscape.

Dionysus 22-12-2004 02:01 AM

i used firefox, i didnt like it

JackYang 22-12-2004 05:04 AM

I heard that firefox doesn't come with alot of plug-ins?

JackYang 22-12-2004 05:56 PM

Oh I see must be false rumours I heard from computer dummies.

Donut 22-12-2004 09:32 PM

FF 4 sure!
but i'm afraid it will get too popular, so more and more viruses will match to the FF :mad:

JackYang 22-12-2004 10:19 PM

Haha, if they do get bigger than Internet Explorer, chances are Microsoft will try to buy it.

Donut 25-12-2004 09:46 PM

that are just numbers, i think :read:
I was quite surprised when i heard, that in USA and Germany, the Firefox Comunity managed it to get enough money with doles to commission an ad in newspapers nationwide :)
so - great community that grows day per day

I use Firefox. I think it may change when Microsoft comply with this EU order to sell stripped Windows without any other MS software bundled.

JackYang 26-12-2004 04:35 AM

Haha who knows, it's always possible Microsoft might try to partner up with FireFox and include FireFox as default browser over IE in their operating systems.

deviljet88 26-12-2004 04:59 AM

Or they just take all of Firefox's features and chuck it on their own. Or they might not care much since they don't exactly earn money from the Internet Explorer arm of their empire compared to other parts.

JackYang 26-12-2004 07:30 AM

Well, Internet Explorer's fast but it accepts too much junk such as massive spywares that browsers like NEtscape blocks so who knows. Alot of people complains about bad security in windows and one of the weakest end that's causing it is Internet explorer.

Melvin 26-12-2004 01:59 PM

Oh, sorry, I don't really know much about it. I thought it was supposed to be all MS software stripped out of it plus revealing some code to competitors. I'm probably wrong, so I apologise.

JackYang 01-01-2005 05:31 AM

Sweet! I decided to get Firefox earlier today and I got to say it's alot better than Internet Explorer. The browser just blocks a lot of spywares and threats from your system. For Internet Explorer, no matter what pop-up blocker I install, I always have to dump the spywares out with Ad-Ware PRO SE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Netscape 7.2's also pretty decent.
