FireFox Browser very good


I have been playing with the new FireFox version 2 browser and it's various
 add-ons, some of those extensions are not just very great and good, but incredible too.

Mostly the Torrent searches and downloads, use a good Bit Torrent download freeware program to use with it and also of course the "DownThemAll" download manager Firefox's  extension, there are so many good extensions for  FireFox, I think that I got some of the best of them.

Internet Explorer just can't compete with a properly loaded FireFox.

Go to the FireFox site and look in there for most everything that you need for the browser.

K-Meleon is also very good and maybe with the proper additions to it even more secure than FireFox, but does not work well with the LP's Rich test Editor" maybe Todd can take a good look  at that sometime is he has any time for that as I like K-Meleon a lot too, it appears to be a very highly secure browser.

For those that like IE then take a good look at and overlay that is much more than just a new skin called:

 Fast Browser Pro, then you might stay with IE.

Good luck.

Check out the Answers.com add-on for Firefox too. Incredible tool. You have a dictionary, encyclopedias, thesaurus, etc. at the click of a button. It's my favorite feature of all browsers I've used.

K-Meleon probably uses an older version of the Mozilla rendering engine, which was known to be buggy for rich text editing. Not much I can do about it. If the editor doesn't work well, I would not recommend it for regular LP users.

I agree that Firefox 2.0 is much better than 1.5 was. They FINALLY moved the tab-close buttons to the tabs themselves, rather than making you click off to the right. I guess they saw how IE7 did it, and copied it. They also updated the look a little, which was also much-needed.

If you're going to compare Firefox to IE, make sure you're looking at IE7 and not IE6. IE7 is an AWESOME web browser, and so far I haven't seen anything in Firefox 2.0 that IE7 can't do.

You are right, I was talking about IE 6.

Thanks a lot.

I went there and downloaded the extension, I also downloaded their Windows' "AnswersSetup.exe" program that might do the same thing for Windows with-out using FireFox at all.

Thank you very much.
