After a lot of reluctance to move away from IE, i finally embraced firefox (believe me, this is my fourth try with it ;-) )

Now i just love it coz it has this amazing ability to stop animated flash ads !!!

But, the gifs in a web page still keep blinking. Normally in IE, i would use the stop button to kill all animated gifs in a page. the stop button is disabled in firefox !!! Any clues?

I am using FIREBIRD.It's very similer to IE.I donno abt animated GIF stopping.But if u are IE fan,Firebird is better than Firefox.usage of CTRL+Enter is similer to IE for filling URL with http://www-- prefix.And Autofill is also similer to IE.You get a dropdown list for filling a textfield with previousely entered values once u type two letters.

I found that these features are not there in Firefox i hav installed 3-4 months before.Then i hav uninstalled it.It was once named Pheonix.Then renamed to Firebird.It's very much an IE Mozilla.

Firebird is merely an older version of Firefox before they chagned the name.

Other browsers tried to take over IE. Nobody succeeds. IE rules.

If others succeed, Gates will kill them.

That almost seems like a Haiku-type poem.

I had a similar thing happen. After a long term relationship with IE I ran into Mozilla. At first it was sure it was just a one off thing - something that happened once during a long tiring day at work. Of course I knew IE was better, but man, those tabs looked good. Then it was more than once. Before I knew what was happening I was double clicking on Mozilla every day, neglecting the faithful IE. Sure we'd had some good times, but Mozilla had caught my attention and made me forget IE. The novelty, the excitement of it... but I was neglecting IE. I should have felt guilty, but I told myself that it was ok - after all this was just at work. I still went home to IE at the end of the day.

Soon, however, I was to sink to new depths. At home there was the good old IE, but it just wasn't the same any more. IE seemed slow, unattractive and tabless. By this point my browser loyalty had all but gone; I could no longer be trusted to just to stick to a single browser. Even Mozilla was beginning to look a bit, well, large. I know, its nasty to say to any browser, but true all the same.

The next bit is almost to hard to say. I was sitting at home one day, and had just had a bit argument with IE. It was then that I met Mozilla's younger, slimmer sister Firefox. As you can probably guess, I couldn't resist the temptation. Firefox is great - a fantastic browser. I can see us having a long future, but what can I do about IE? Twice now I have turned to another browser... how do I let IE down gently? And what about Mozilla at my office?

Firefox is really good, like already mentioned the AdBlock feature alone should be enough to convince anyone to move to Firefox. (Well for certain websites that 'need' IE to function properly, you need to use IE )

I always e-mail such sites to let them know they are losing business with this policy.

If you think Firefox is a great browser, you can help spread the word by checking out Spread FireFox

I've never come across such an organized campaign for an (great) opensource product.
