    Is it worth the switch? What are the pros and cons?

    YES DO IT!

    Pro's: Tabs - I open a forum in the original pane, and then just wheel click every post. They all show up in tabs, and I can close them with a wheel click on the tab, no going back or waiting or anything.

    Con's: It's not loaded a webpage properly..... once.... ONCE!

    just try it and see if you like it, thats what i did and i still use it.

    fire fox has less spyware, more customizing options, no popups, tabed brousing (view different pages with one window open)

    cons...took me 5 minutes to download and install it...could have been faster lol

    same thing happened to me..once. i downloaded an extention that when i right click at the bottom is "view page in IE" solved that problem

    there are also a few flash type pages that doesn't recongize firefox, the above solves that also.

    I say do it. Ive been using it for a bit. It doesn't load a page properly more than once for me. I'd say once a week or every other week. The absense of red x's piss me off.(can't copy the url to look at the picture). I still have IE installed so I can deal with things like that if I really care to. Otherwise, the utter lack of spyware problems since I installed it more than makes up for stuff.

    You'll like it. It may take a little while to get used to not having 20 windows open and not having any more pop-ups, but you will get used to it:D

    had it happen once, i think firefox froze and then tried to restart, but being the "first profile" was still in use, you needed to create a new one.

    click cancel, then ATL CTRL DEL and find it and end task, then restart it and it should be back to your original profile.

    Piss on that nonsence. The more I used it the more I hated it. I really didn't see any benefits from it so I removed it. I went back to My old setup and I'm gonna stay that way. Firefox sucked ass.

    Oh come one Corey, it can't be that bad. It's just needs a little warming up too. I'll bet it has something to do with loading the pics in the pig pen. :grin:
    I like it because I think it loads pages faster than IE, but I also like the tab feature.

    As a matter of fact it loaded slower and I did not care for the tab feature.

    I will say I'm not getting any pop-ups fo sho, but I have a hard time gettin cookies to work so some pages are blocked. My IE sucked, slower than a **** on a cool winters day.
