If you're sick of Internet Explorer and all its security flaws and you're not big on Netscape, I highly recommend Mozilla's anticipated and finally released new browser, Firefox.

You can DL Firefox for free.



Firefox 1.0

Ditto... Jimmy. Already using it. Firefox gets high marks from me. Love the tabbed browing and all the extensions you can download to customize your internet experience. Currently using extensions for image zoom, tabbrowser, and google preview.

I've been a long time Netscape user due to the IE security issues and recently tried and switched to the preview release of Firefox (and upgraded to the "final release" this weekend) and think its the greatest.

Can't wait for the Thunderbird e-mail, RSS and newsgroup client. I believe the 0.9 version has been released, so hopefully the final version will be out early next year if not sooner.

another note worth mentioning...

unlike IE, Firefox is very strict when it comes to following rules for things like CSS and the like, so if your web site's font and screen colors look right in Firefox, they will probably look right in most other browsers. I ran into an issue where page fonts in certain tables where white on black in IE, but black on black in other browsers, specifically Firefox. I found that the td color tag was missing in my style sheet and IE (leniantly) simply picks a tag from another style, where Firefox holds you to the rules.

Amen to that.

After you install it go out and get some file extensions for added functionality, such as adblock.

Tired of outlook express? Install Mozilla Thunderbird mail client.
It's good to see reliable choices come of age.

Or...buy a Mac.

Regards,
Rick

Hey Jimmy, glad to hear from you again. I've tried Firefox and it's ok. I have a freind who uses it exclusivly, and he swears by it. It's not a second rate program, just nothing for me personally to get excited about. I do like how you are telling people about an alternative to Bill Gates though.

I just downloaded Firefox and I'm liking it. I do have one question though. Does anyone know how to do batch uploads with it. When I upload my prints to the lab, I can't find a way to select several at once. I have to click on each file individually. This gets to be a pain when you ar uploading 100 plus images.

Was the batch upload something you could do in IE? If so I am guessing your lab must have some custom Javascript or ActiveX component that might be IE specific. Either that your you will have to re-download a Firefox specific version.

You will find very few things that Firefox won't do that IE would with the exception of those types of custom components. And with added extentions Firefox will do many things that IE will not.

I am no fan of IE, but Mozilla Firefox didn't make me estatic either.

First, there is the problem of the sites designed around IE which don't work well with ANY other browsers. I can't believe I am the only one who seems to constantly run into such sites.

Secondly, the image download and save functions are slow. It seems that you cannot save an image directly even if it's displayed on your screen. If you want to save it, the program must download it again. This doubles the time it takes. Multiply that by a bunch of images, and it really eats up time. At least that what I think is happening.

It's a nice program for many other purposes, it just doesn't seem to "fit" well with me. And I hate having two or three browsers open at one time just to browse the 'net.

Most designers know better than to design a site for a specific browser. The latest version of Dreamweaver MX (the Web design program I use) will check a design against a dozen or so different browsers, both Windoze and Mac, alert you if you've written incompatible code, and highlight the specific tags or whatever. I'm in the process of rewrtiting my HTML sites to be compaitble with XHTML, and I use Firefox as my main "look and feel" browswer because it holds XHTML sites to strict compliance. Frankly, if the site works with Firefox, it'll work with everything except Netscape 4.0 (which is the world's most incompatible browser).

If for no other reason, you should switch away from IE because of its numerous security holes. They are so severe that the US Department of Homeland Security has issued this warning about them: "There are a number of significant vulnerabilities in technologies relating to the IE domain/zone security model, the DHTML object model, MIME type determination, the graphical user interface (GUI), and ActiveX. It is possible to reduce exposure to these vulnerabilities by using a different web browser, especially when browsing untrusted sites." Caveat surfer! --Randy

One way to save an image is to click and drag to a folder. This works in Firefox even on sites that prevent a right-click save, like the Other Model Place. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
