“I was getting so fed-up with IE8 hanging up, virus...”

Written on: 12/03/2010

I was getting so fed-up with IE8 hanging up, virus attack attempts and so on that I decided to try Mozilla Firefox 3.6. At first I was quite happy with it, but the more I use it the more I get frustrated with it. Part of Firefox's big selling point is that it's significantly faster than other browsers. Well I've have now tried IE8, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari against each other and cannot say that I've noticed any significant difference between any of them. There are so many links, websites etc that are not compatible with Firefox it's unbelievable.

All the time you keep on getting pestered to downlaod "Add-ons" in order for these applications/web pages to work. You install official add-ons via Firefox website and when you come to install and run them you get a message saying that either that add-on is not compatible with V3.6 or it has been disabled because Mozilla deems that one of it's own add-ons (and not a third party mind you) is unsafe to use.

I haven't changed any settings, but suddenly and for some unkown reason (and I'm quite an experienced web and computer users) won't show frames on my Yahoo Home Page.

Opera doen't have phishing protection and can't be used with Norton so that's out. Safari's interface is just a waste of time and not very user friendly. So that leaves Google Chrome & IE8 to choose from. Google Chome is okay but nothing special. At least you know where you are with IE8 and so I'm going back to the devil I know (but don't necessary love).
