what do you have to say about the tags?

it is quicker to type the tags than to click the button IMO....


but yeah mozilla kills IE in security, load up time and spyware. there are a few things that IE is still good for like certain plugins/active-x type products...

tags are just something you deal with.

O personallly can't stand IE because of the lack of tabs and the lack of mouse gestures.

75+17+4=96%....what'* the other 4?

I've tried Firefox. I can't get myself to like it.

I've never had one issue with IE, and all the sites look fine on it. As for the security thing, IE is quite secure, and if you aren't click happy it works great.

But truly yes in most cases it is good, just firefox does ALOT better job on pop-ups and also protects you from things that IE cant, like any virus or spyware that you can get just by going to a website and loading a PIC, firefox will protect you from things like that and IE wont..

Yuck, I hate safari, I use FF on macs at school.

I run FF with Fasterfox and Google'* web accelerator both optimized, and it runs fast as all hell.
