    This is no surprise. I also haven't used IE in probably 6 or 7 years, they just can't seem to get their shit together.

    In my opinion all this proves is more idiots use IE than FF. Just wait, as the market share for FF increases so will the amount of vulnerabilitys. Using FF, Chrome, Opera etc does not protect you from being a dumbass online. 98% of the population online falls into the "I surf like a dumbass" category. The other browsers have faults as well, but they arnt as fun to smear as MS is. All of this is comming from someone who uses FF every single day, minus at work.

    I played with it for a few days, but I have gotten used to my FF add ons so I gave it up haha. It is a pretty polished browser though. My biggest reason for supporting "third party" browsers is that most of them actually adhear to standards. So a properly coded website will function that much better. I am sure B and the other code monkeys here can regal us will all kinds of stories about IE butchering their sites.

    i dont like chroe either... i need my FF plugins to function.

    ie7 isn't too too bad... nice 1st try at standards. Kinda like GM. nice try at building cars. you still failed.
    ie6 is absolute junk... like yugo junk.

    FF is the Veryon of browsers :)

    I'm using chrome still since the day of release. It's fast as fuck lol. FF Veyron of browsers my ass. Chrome does multiple threads, and it's always very responsive. Atleast on my computer it's faster than firefox. I like a minimalistic type browser though, no plugins for me, so this suits me well. Plus I don't lose my post of there's a network issue and posting a quick reply fails.

    Sometimes I notice though, some websites only work correctly with IE, never firefox or chrome. So I hope they fix it. But really I don't do much exploratory browsing so I don't think I'm at risk.

    I remember when I was using Mozilla 0.9.5 released (12 October 2001)prior to the 1.0 release in 2002, you laughed at me for using it. Now it's Firefox 3 and everyone loves it. and don't forget about the lovely adblock plus plugin.
