Welcome to the forums JackyMe!

its a good topic, that will be well discussed, and has a place in our computer discussions forums.

i realise you cannot post a new topic there, as you are not a member yet, and you wont be able to post a reply if i move it there, so i'll leave it here for a short while.

My favorite has to be Firefox at the moment.

i changed to Firefox a long time ago because of browser hijacks and pop-ups from IE. I've been told IE has much improved these days, but Firefox ain't let me down so far, so thats what i stick with.

Its annoying that Microsoft make you use their browser to download updates tho. and there should be an option in windows live to default to a browser of your choice when checking mail via the link.

personally i have my mailbox bookmarked in Firefox now, but i shouldn't have too!!!!

Firefox for me. I don`t like IE at all, it`s riddled with spyware.

Seamonkey needs adding to the list. Was having a play with it the other night because it has a web editor add-in which is more than passable for editing HTML text pages, and of course a freebie.

Has a very Netscape Navigator feel to it so I presume it comes from that root?

Better of worse than FF? Dunno just yet.

P.S. to MONGO: Like the new picture. Much more subtle than the last few, and oodles more subversive. :D

I've used Firefox as my main browser since 2006. I've tried other's here and there (Opera and Safari), but I couldn’t get away with them.

Since upgrading Firefox to the latest version though I've been having bother with it from time to time (nothing that’s already well documented on the net).

The Ad Block Plus add-on for Firefox is brilliant. It automatically blocks adverts on websites. It comes with a pre-installed list of blocked ads (generally the ones that are blocked automatically are the more questionable ads), but you can also block them as you go along.

Download Helper is another nice little ad-on for downloading and converting video straight from a website to your MP4 player.

seamonkey is firefox!

well, its BASED on firefox... much the same as differing windows versions are 'based' on each other.

its still a differing browser tho... in the way that you can have both installed and running independantly...

Well, 2008 ended with firefox romping home.

only 3 browsers voted on as of 16:28 31-12-2008 and stood as follows:

Microsoft Internet Explorer: 2

Firefox: 5

opera: 1

What a disappointing turnout!

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
