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...

What a disappointing turnout!

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
