Firefox is still in BETA form. There are a few kinks to still be worked out but if you would take a little time to read our Firefox Tweak thread you may be able to optimize it for more speed.

i also like the fact that their are no popups and its not a haven for hackers like ie is. :rolleyes:

Agreed. This is reason enough to use firefox, slow speed or no.

However, Firefox is just as fast as IE for me, so FF > IE all the way :thup:

I notice the difference in speed. Have you guys done this? ---> http://www.computerbb.org/about150.html

Firefox is better than IE in every way, IMO. I thought it was funny that Firefox issued the fix the same day the security problem was found, yet Microsoft takes their sweet time to patch things.
Wow, I had my reservations as to whether I'd notice a difference...Oh My
:thup: :clap:
Thank you!
