I Heart Firefox

Another bandwagon I have jumped on: Firefox. And I have not regretted it for even one second. IE was crashing on me two or three times a day, so in a moment of IE-rage I Googled Firefox and within an hour I was in a blissful crash-free daze.

Some features I really like:
  • Tabbed windows within the browser
  • "Open all in tabs" from bookmarks folder
  • Integrated Google search
  • Integrated Bloglines notifier (with download from bloglines)
  • It is much faster than IE. (My laptop is pretty old, and I'm on a dialup here at home, so you may not notice a huge difference if you have nicer stuff.)
I realize that Firefox has been around forever, and this is super old news, so forgive me for being all last-month.

I agree with Josh. Definately a good switch. My laptop is new but I have network here at school and 52kbps dialup on my laptop at home... sooo yeah, I stopped using Mozilla I guess 2 weeks ago and recently made the switch -- I love the tabs and bloglines services, too!
