    Been using it for a few weeks now. Liking the tab browsing - takes a bit of getting used to - trying to remember not to close the whole sodding lot down, not just the tab I'm browsing in. Never used Firefox so not sure how it compares unfortunately.

    Imagine all of the things you like about IE7.

    Now imagine thousands of free plugins and extensions (a lot that are REALLY useful).

    Now imagine it's more resilient to the infernal malware.

    Now imagine it doesn't call home all the time.

    Et voila! Firefox! ;)

    Agreed, Firefox is better.

    I'm actually considering going fully lnx instead of just dual booting.

    Suse.
     
  9. So, firefox is better then? Good. I won't bother downloading IE7.

    For those sites that don't work, there's an extension on the firefox site that enables you to open a web page in internet explorer in a tab within firefox.
    Good tool.
