OT: OUCH!

Filed at 5:45 am under by dcobranchi

Internext Explorer is old, old, old, and Firefox is the new hot thing, according to the NYT in the snarkiest piece I’ve ever read in that paper. Firefox is better although some pages don’t render properly. That will change over time as Firefox builds market share.

BTW- tabbed browsing is a godsend for blogging. And you can download Firefox 1.0 here.

I’ve been using Firefox for 6 months now and I love it!

The Mozilla Foundation just ran a 2 page ad in the NYT last week, paid for completely with user donations. Of course, the NYT they would never let advertising affect their editorial decisions….

Note – this is not a defense of IE, I’ve been a Mozilla / Firefox user for years. However, the timing certainly is interesting…

ARGH! It’s pet peeve of mine when poeple (not you) complain that Friefox doesn’t show pages properly. I may be overly-picky, but it apears this way because the pages themselves are done incorrectly. Firefox follow the HTML guidelines: IE doesn’t. IE ignores certain things (or has its own interpretation) when it looks at a webpage.

Daryl,

You’ve convinced me. Just downloaded it. It’s loading everything beautifully.

I’ve been using Firefox for a few months now and absolutely love it. The tab feature is my favorite. I frequently have multiple windows open, especially when I’m researching something, and the tabs make this so much easier.

The live bookmarks are also great for sites with RSS feeds. IE used to crash our computer at lest once/day, but it has never crashed running firefox. Since I installed firefox, even my non-techie wife stopped using IE.
