IE7 vs Firefox 3: 3 simple reasons why Firefox is better

I’ve seen lengthy discussions on the web why we should go for firefox but I think it can be summarized in 3 points:

1. Firefox is faster
Firefox starts faster and it seems (to me) that pages load faster as well  

2. There are loads (loads loads loads) of add-ons available for a variety of features
Firefox allows developers to create plugins that work with its browser. You have add-ons to manage download, to download all pdf on a page, to create shared bookmarks,…. – you’ll find what you want and if you don’t have it, code it.

3. The Looks
Loads of themes are available and you can even make firefox look like IE. Also I don’t know why IE has hidden the top toolbar: File Edit … Help. It’s just an HCI hell.


If you are still unconvinced; The others (that I like)

  1. It blocks popups efficiently
  2. It allows you to save passwords after you have entered the right one (this especially helps when you have 20 accounts and need 2 – 3 attempts to remember the correct one for a site )

  1. Also with firefox you have the ability to secure yourself through plugins which you can download and configure within firefox itself.


  2. Hey Blueberry, use the IE Tab add-on for Firefox if you still love IE. Then you will never care to use IE again.

  3. I thought my computer was dying. I tried shutting down services, running ccleaner every week, the usual hard drive optimization,etc, but browsing just got slower and slower – it was driving me nuts. Yesterday I finally installed FF3. WTF? It’s a pleasure to be back online again. FF3 rocks. I can’t believe MS could put out such a piece of crap. Wait, yes I can, they’re the company that gave birth to Vista. I continue to think Bill Gates is a lucky fraud. And if he says ‘innovation’ one more time, I’d like to strangle him. He does do good things with his $$ though, so it’s not all bad.
