Re: Internet Explorer Or Mozilla Firebox?

If you are using Firefox try the "Stumbleupon" add-on, it randomly selects web pages for you based on user set parameters.

Switched to Firefox not three days ago. Pretty good so far but the jury's still out.

It's supposed to be:

Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

Re: Internet Explorer Or Mozilla Firebox?

I voted other, as I am currently using Avant Browser.

This is basically a front end to IE that provides all the benefits of tabbed browsing and ad/pop-up blocking.

I was having some problems with Firefox with compatibility and performance. I configured FF with the setting provided in the other thread, but I was finding that after a while it would slow down again (not sure if this might have been a problem with the cache or something).

And because it is essentially running IE in the background, it is 100% compatible.

Very happy with it.

AO Gods:

How about looking into enabling an RSS feed from the forums? Firefox has RSS support. Would save us all visiting the site directly saving you bandwidth = cost, and we can all easily see new post and quickly decide to view, rather than "trawling" through the site?

Experience shows that RSS feeds can actually increase the bandwidth consumed

Re: Internet Explorer Or Mozilla Firebox?

I have to agree with Green Cloverleaf - Avant Browser is tops!!

No more daft popups! Woohoo

Tabs and site compatability are great too!

Re: Internet Explorer Or Mozilla Firebox?

Firefox (work) and Safari (home) 99% of the time, mainly because speed, stability, tabs, bookmark management, and pop-up blocking.

That 1% is for the office intranet which only supports IE.

True. I don't know how it manages, but it's quicker.
