Also note that Firefox was not the first to adopt tabbed browsing - is it therefore also a copycat? I'm hardly a big supporter of Microsoft, but this seems like a really silly thing to criticize them for.

Yeah, I agree. If your going to criticize, criticize them for their lack of security or CSS/DHTML support (which is supposed to be fixed in 7). I'm not real sure who had tabbed browsing first. I know the first one I experienced was Opera. And there are also browsers like Avant and Maxthon which have all sorts of features and goodies including tabbed browsing with an embedded IE running in them. They're all still crap compared to Firefox right now, but hey, there are options.

Well Eric, it looks like you've already sold your soul; it's a little late to negotiate for a better price.

Just because I program in VB.NET does not make me the devil's sidekick!

I have installed, IE6, Firefox, mozilla, oprea, and netscape. I use IE 90% of the time. I use Firefox when I do not want my company to know what I am doing. ( )

Mine don't. Oh wait, I am the admin. So what holes does Firefox have? All I know is that 1 day of IE and I have spyware. 1 month and firefox and I don't. And yes, I have done that testing. No crazy sites. Just the same places over and over. I don't care so much about security holes in the app as I do about the browser allowing mailicious applications to be installed without my knowledge. No, MS doesn't make the spyware, but they sure don't do a good job of keeping it out. Firefox solves this issue for me. NO ACTIVEX!!

I have been using Avant and a little of Firefox. Though i admit a few shortcomings in Avant, i still prefer it over the others. Call it comfort level or whatever.

I am fan of MS products and their intelligence to give me what I want before my asking.

Regarding spyware, Aurora sucks.. but still I think thats because of popularity of IE.

And second, FireFox sucks on Linux.. and whoever says Linux is good.. its good only because its free.. else Linux sucks too.

I think Linux will never become home PC desktop OS.

And for server, M$ really has a big competition with Unix/Linux.

Firefox can not be tracked by your security people with most of their software, hence why they do not want you to use it.

Well the last security scare with Firefox was about two weeks ago: http://blogcritics.org/archives/2005/05/10/102510.php
The solution to that was disbale JavaScript....hm

I use IE at work and at home. I have no spyware problems. I have scans that run automatically and they are lucky to catch 10 things a week. How people get spyware is going to sites they can not trust. Install SP2 with IE and you will have less problems in my eyes.

Logically speaking, why should browsers catch viruses anyway, if you simply use browsers to view text and graphics on net.

I am sure some there are some site the require scripting languages or persistence. They simply should be sandboxed or run in a virtual machine. Those scripts are nothing more then metadata, on a curtain setting it should not be possible for the browser metadata to violate any integrity or do any damage.

Interesting, almost all the developers at my work use Firefox. When a new version comes out it gets dropped onto one of our shared network drives so we don't waste the bandwidth of 100+ downloads. Our network people seem to have no problems tracking our internet usage (bandwidth at my company is very important any download larger than 40MBs automatically sends emails to the network admin group and to much usage per month can get you in trouble).
