    its fast, no popup blocker, it has many useful add ons, and its free. I guess ur a IE user? its slow against firefox, it isnt very safe, i used it and got a virus. firefox is much more reliable in speed, protection, and tools.

    ask pirate, he is a wiz wit FF

    It's abbreviation is actually Fx, not FF, and Firefox is OK, but opera is actually a lot better.

    I use Firefox but it has it's ups and downs.

    Opera Web Browser it was the first to have tabbed browsing, and is actually faster then Firefox..

    How do I capitalize Firefox? How do I abbreviate it?

    Only the first letter is capitalized (so it's Firefox, not FireFox.) The preferred abbreviation is "Fx" or "fx".

    FireFox is the only browser i use. i think opera is slower than IE and Fx. Safari for windows is still buggy, but is constantly having updates. anyway Fx is the fastest, and you can find an add-on for anything. my favorite is foxy tunes, it allows you to change youre song in the browser.

    the reason i like fire fox is the fact that i thought my connection was really slow when i was using ie7 (its 8 mbs by the way) but i istalled firefox one day and it is as fast as ever web pages load up in no time unlike ie6 and 7

    my first 89% original sig yea

    My firefox sometime uses 100% usage or randomly stops working. I.E., the tabs wont switch or wont create a new tab..

    But I admit firefox is good, other then the few bugs it has.

    IE for me wasnt good. It was very slow. Whenever I wanted it to close, it took about 30 sec. Fx was my second and love it. has a few bugs but alright. opera i gotta see.

    Opera is a hell of alot faster, but it doesnt have a really good adblocker like Fx's AdBlock Plus. I hate ads. Every last one of them.
    As a speed comparison between IE and Fx (although i used to always call it FF, but then i saw it called Fx by alot of people in a few days, anywho....), i was on my sister's laptop, which gets a mediocre signal in my living room seeing as there is several walls between it and the router. IE started a download at about 90kbps and went down to about 60-70 for the bulk of it. Fx started at about 120 and settled at about 100. Huge difference on a slow server (Cough, deviantArt, cough).
    While i am here, why does the download speed taper off after a few seconds? I was downloading a file from MediaFire using DTA One Click and it started at about 2.5MB/s which got me all excited, but then at about 40% (about 5 seconds later) it tapered down to just over 1MB/s. I hate getting all excited about stuff just to be disappointed in the end. Like your mom brings home your favorite cake from the store, then you realize she got the low fat tasteless one. Its cruel.
    Very funny....not.
