A safe and simple way to browse

Advantageseasy to navigate and simpe to set up

Disadvantagescan get sluggish, although blue moons are seen more often

"...know…?). Anyway, I had known about Mozilla Firefox for a while, ( and I'm sure it was under a different name back then..? Something like firefly or firebird…???) but had heard a few naughty things about it… but that was a while ago, so I thought I'd give it a go since I've heard some positive stuff about it quite recently… * FINDING AND DOWNLOADING It is easy to download, I got it from www.download.com, but you can simply google it, the ..."

Firefox 2 Vrs Internet explorer 7

AdvantagesFirefox is faster and more secure

Disadvantagesits open source its brilliant

"If you are reading this review chances are you are probably reading it with Internet explorer. This is probably because Internet explorer came with your PC and being a person who is not so sure about trying out alternative lifestyles or new things in general you haven't tried anything else. There is a brilliant alternative to your lethargic Internet Explorer and it has been around for quite some time. Its Open source meaning that any number of ..." Read review

Mozilla's Godzilla of a Browser

AdvantagesCan be a lot quicker on some sites

DisadvantagesWhen it doesn't work

"...of a little thing called Mozilla Firefox. We live in a world where there's never one of anything, there's always more than one chocolate bar to choose from, so why isn't there going to be more than one internet browser to choose from? Afterall, the internet is bigger than the physical world itself. I had heard of Firefox previously, and never really thought seriously about taking it on as my number one resource for the internet, with my IE just ..." Read review

Mozilla Firefox - what a browser!

AdvantagesQuick, free, secure, better than internet explorer

DisadvantagesRarely crashes but apart from that - none!

"Ok so what is Mozilla Firefox? Well it's a free internet browser just like internet explorer and it works in pretty much the same way. However, once you download it you will soon come to realise that it is SO much better than internet explorer (and I prefer it to Opera too). It is important to note that all the features included in internet explorer are also in Firefox (e.g. bookmarks, status bar etc). However firefox is much faster as instead ..." Read review

A foxy little browser that lets me feel safe on the internet!

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"I've been using Firefox for a few years now, and I have to say, I love it . I was perfectly happy with internet explorer - I'd never had any problems with it really, or any major issues with security . Then, a few years ago, odd things started happening to people who played the same online game as me - their accounts were being compromised at an alarming rate, resulting in them losing characters they had spent years building up . The hackings were ..." Read review

Firefox vs. Internet Explorer - which is the best browser?

Advantagesthe security they offer, easy installation, customizable features

Disadvantagesnot a default program with windows

"...buy. * Mozilla is making things easier for developers by allowing us to use Firefox as much more than just one of the free web browsers. It's a validator, backlink checker, web developer tool wizard and more. This saves developers time and is a huge advantage over IE. * Additional Firefox extensions are easily downloadable and arranged in a way that makes them easy to find. Even better, they allow you to see who contributed an extension, and what ..." Read review

Firefox Add-ons - esp. for beginners

AdvantagesCustomise your version of FireFox to make your surfing much easier

DisadvantagesDon't go overboard and beware of clashes between add-ons

"...opens a tab to the Mozilla site. When you select one, you will find a green box "Install now" Click this and an installation window pops up. There is a short countdown before the "Install now" button is enabled. Click this and an Installation tab appears in the Add-ons window. The majority of add-ons want FireFox to be restarted before they are active. It provides a button for this and FireFox will shutdown and restart with all the tabs open ..." Read review

Tweaking and Tuning Up Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

AdvantagesFreeware

DisadvantagesI don't know

"...Feature’ – is similar to Mozilla Firefox (MF). Which browser is better? Here I am going to tell you based on what I have observed and learned based on an end user perspective and not technical. FAST, FASTER & THE FASTEST Browsing is one of our common activities while being connected to Internet. We need speed. We are seldom satisfied with what we have had or gained, and no exception with browsing applications as there are various free browsers ..." Read review

Firefox: A Super Speedy Internet Browser

AdvantagesLoads pages much faster than internet explorer and is safe

Disadvantagesnone yet

"I just downloaded firefox a day ago and i'm already hooked and using it as my default server. I first heard about firefox a few months ago when my friend was raving about it but I didn't see what was so great about it and carried on using internet explorer 6. It wasnt up until the last few weeks when I have been having a few problems loading up particular web pages (error on page message and could not click on hyperlinks), especially facebook, ..."

mozilla rocks

Advantagesfaster speeds and less boots off sites

Disadvantagesnone

"ABIT ABOUT MOZILLA FIREFOX Well i had never heard of Mozilla until i got a job in online bingo and was asked to download it. So i did, i thought how can one browser be different than another. I was wrong. At first i did only use firefox when i was working, but then i realised just how good it was. Especially if you play online bingo. Due to the amount of cookies and temp files bingo sites used up in your PC, you could guarantee that you always ..." Read review

It takes more than just loading pages efficiently

AdvantagesTons of addons, efficient

Disadvantagescan be a bit of a slug

"My opinion would say the Firefox is by far the most superior browser around right now. It takes more than just loading pages efficiently nowadays for a browser to be declared the best one around. Firefox has so many features and so many potential community made add ons that it without a doubt the best browser to surf the net on. 1) Browsing - Firefox might have all these cool features here, there and everywhere but it is it's browsing ability that ..."

The best browser available

AdvantagesFree, secure, reliable and fast

DisadvantagesNone

"I first started using Firefox when problems with my computer led me into having to find a new browser to use. Before this, I had never really known the difference between browsers and had always stuck to Internet Explorer. However, when I first started using it the first thing that I noticed, and was really impressed by, was how much fatser it operates that Internet Explorer. In my experience, Firefox opens up much quicker and loads pages probably ..." Read review

It's a wiley old Fox

AdvantagesIt isn't Internet Explorer

Disadvantagessome pages don't display properly

"I like Firefox. it's main benefit is that it isn't Internet Explorer, with all the over stuffing and security problems that go along with it. It is very easy to install, all you do is download it from www.mozilla.org and run the executable file. It will automatically import your favourites, or bookmarks from Internet Explorer and has the advantage of allowing you to decide whether to have multiple pages displayed as tabs or separate windows. It ..." Read review
