    Hi everyone,
    For those of you using Firefox as your browser of choice, version 17.0.1 is now available.

    What they've fixed:  

    To update, Go to the Help -> About Firefox

    If you don't already have Firefox but would like to try it, go to:   (there's a new desktop and android version available)

    How do you guys think it compares to other browsers like Chrome and IE?

    I prefer Firefox :D

    I absolutely refuse (so far) to use any web browser but Google Chrome. :)
  6. QQQUUUUAADDDWell Known MemberMember

    That's what I use now but I just want to know if there is anything better. (sincerely sorry for the hijack, also do not want this to turn into a browser war)

    It's all a matter of what folks prefer. I may prefer GC, but others might detest it.
  8. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    I think IE would be least desirable.

    Mostly Chrome, what I'm using to write this.

    My Netbook has Firefox, I use that at work.

    Firefox just got too big.

    They all invade your "privacy". You can sometimes limit that if you study up what you need to do and spend the time making all the adjustments, but privacy protection is NOT the default by any means.

    I thought about closing the thread as soon as it was posted :D

    Happy for the discussion to take place.

    FWIW - I'm a Firefox fan, mainly because of the developer add-on/plug-ins that are available.

    I love my Firefox add-ons.
  13. QQQUUUUAADDDWell Known MemberMember

    I've tried Firefox and now I love it. I really like the add-ons like Adblock Plus.
  14. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    I love adblock + as well! So much win.

    I used to love firefox and then I tried chrome. Chrome has built in developer tools that rival or are better than firefox's, in my opinion. I loooooove firefox but there aren't any addons in it that I can't live without. Chrome has adblock plus and that's all I really need. That and chrome syncs with my android. :) Both are awesome and I constantly recommend then daily over IE. It's my job, afterall!

    I am using Firefox. I actually prefer Chrome, but the newest version had some issues with the drivers on my computer (I guess) and didn't work right. That's stopped since I started using Firefox again.
