I left IE7 (da Elder Aunt with Lipstick) on my father-in-law's computer because he's on dial-up, and I didn't want him to deal with the upgrade and improvement downloads that Firefox frequently issues. Works just fine for his surfing. I have FF hidden and I use it to avoid the painful nature of IE.

For those wondering what this is all about, modern browser now all have Add-Ons, little programs to add functionality to the browser. IE has a handful (last time I looked) all created by Microsoft that don't do anything useful, while FF has 1,000s, here's a few of the 1 I use to make surfing life easier:

Auto-Copy
Select text and it's automatically copied to the clipboard.

GMail Notifier
Notifies you when you have mail in GMail

Google Browser Sync
Syncs Bookmarks/Favorites between my Laptop and my Desktop automatically

VideoDownloader
Download videos from YouTube, etc.

Tab Mix Plus
Makes tab browsing much more powerful

Colorful Tabs
Makes tabs colorful, bringing joy to the world!

Well, iespell is not there by default , but you can download the free version under manage downloads.
Here is the link:
http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/details....;itemid=1513531

But the Google toolbar has one built in, along with auto complete of forms and other goodies.

Yeah. Browsers are practically religion. I use a browser all day long at work for various work related tasks. I just switched from Opera which crashed on me about once a year to Firefox, which crashes on me about once a week. Sadly, there are lots of sites that are tuned for IE or FireFox so Opera has trouble competing; even though it's the most standards compliant browser... I'm all Mac based but sadly, Safari doesn't compete, except against IE.

It's all religion...

I'm a big Firefox fan. One big advantage I've found, for those of you who like to shop on Craig's List, is this site:

http://www.craigshelper.com/

This great little "helper" allows you to expand your Craig's List search to multiple areas/cities/states/countries. It did help me find our new Bigfoot. :-) Anyway, it works great on Firefox but does not work on IE.

I use FireFox almost exclusively for FiberglassRV. I like it because I can open a bunch of instances all in tabs. As a moderator, that comes in extremely handy when searching for something. I don't constantly need to go back to where I was initially. Just click that particular tab and I'm good to go

I just opened my home page for the morning. It consists of 17 web sites, each in its own colored tab, including FiberglassRV, Scamp Yahoo, the two Casita sites and two Honda sites. After viewing recent activity I close each tab and move on to non-fiberglass activities.

A couple of sites I keep in tabs 24/7, set to auto-reload every 15 minutes for breaking news for the next time I get back to my computer should my garage floor painting job ever end.

I've recently started using Firefox and enjoy it, mostly because it lets me do stuf that IE won't, but tabs is awkward IMHO in FF compared to IE7. Ctrl+T vs click on new tab. Found (and reported) some commercial sites that didn't work right with FF, plus it sometimes locks up with Yahoo Mail Beta. No serious preference at this stage, although I find myself using FF more often.

I did notice that it uses a LOT more CPU % than IE7 does...

Pete, you will want to add Tab Mix Plus which will open up all the niffty tabbing options. The only time I have to click on "new tab" now is when using the Google toolbar to go to the Google site, everything else, bookmarks, links on web pages, links in emails, etc. will open in a new tab as that is what I set in Tab Mix Plus. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1122

There is also another add-on that allows one to switch the tab from Firefox to IE - IE Tab. I use this when a website is not FF friendly. Works well. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
