Mozilla Firefox

I just loaded Mozilla Firefox on my computer. The screen load times, as compared to IE, are tremendously faster. Anyone else have that experience?

I used Firefox for awhile, and really liked it. But it got so there was a problem running it on my computer. I now use Google Chrome, and that seems to do great.

Firefox fan myself... use it on my work and personal computers. My 2nd choice would be Google Chrome. Both are good browsers in my opinion.

I really like Firefox and have used it for years. The add-ons, stability and speed are great.

The only other browser I use is Safari to synch up my iPad bookmarks. But, I bet there is an add-on in Firefox for that, too. I just need to find it.

I tried firefox and it was faster than IE but it would not allow google mail, google adwords or google adsense, some sort of glitch with google, so went back to IE

Yep. I try to steer friends who have problems with IE to Firefox. My wife just pops up IE to print something because Firefox doesn't give her that option. Just on certain things she says. It's a lot faster then IP.

I've been using Google Chrome almost exclusively since it was publicly released and haven't looked back. 98% of my browsing is done in it. The other 2% is work related to make sure our online class content plays in Internet Exploiter and Firefox.
