    Default Mozilla Firefox

    I know this doesn't have much of a connection with locating but we do use computers so I thought it might have some interest.

    I switched from Internet Explorer to Mozilla's Firefox service about 2 months ago and have really been pleasingly surprised how this seems to have eliminated most of my computer issues on my personal computer.

    I have not had to re-start, clear cookies or do any of those house-keeping chores to keep my computer from slowing down. I still visit the same sites, download articles , etc. but with Firefox my computer never runs into the problems I had on IE.

    Just thought I would share this with everyone in case any of you are experiencing problems.
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !

    Opera is even more secure, and is faster than Firefox, but does not have nearly the number of available add ons.

    I switched to Firefox about a year ago. Switched right back to IE a month later. Hated it.

    If you are this pleased with firefox, you should switch to linux and ditch windows all together.

    Appreciate the suggestion , but everything is working so well right now I think I will stay with Windows and Firefox.

    I don't use Google for anything since they went "political" and tried blocking anti-global warming sites. If I can't trust them to allow access to legitimate info in one area how could I trust them to provide me with unbiased info on anything.
