Name a favorite Web Browser

By jfuller05 ·
Mine particularly is Opera because of the Speed Dial, thumbnail tabs, easy on resources, and plus it's really secure. Of course I'm not saying that other browsers are not good; I'm also a fan of Firefox. What are yours?

Google does have a good browser. I have a friend that uses it.

FF3 just seems way slower.

IE is STUPID slow.

Opera never used it.

Chrome was okay. Was a lot of hype for what I got.

My Browser

by snipe44 In reply to Firefox

I like and use Firefox 3.5.7 / Chrome and Flock. I wish Netscape was still around!

I saw someone post IE...! I didn't know that was still available. I guess I've been using others since Windows 98SE!

Gotta go with Orca still

by Slayer_ In reply to Name a favorite Web Brows ...

Got the firefox strengths with non of the firefox weaknesses (like 30 second load times!).

I used Opera before, but immediately removed it when I noticed it was downloading ActiveX programs automatically without my consent.

On Linux systems, I use Opera because I really really really hate the firefox interface. It's so crippled you can't even put the tabs on the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for mentioning Orca, I'll have to check it out. I like trying an innovative browser.

How come Linux Firefox....

by Slayer_ In reply to Orca?

When I download a file, it just automatically chooses "somewhere" to download and save to. In windows you get a choice. This eternally irritates me because I always download files to my desktop.

"It's in your home folder"
Well what if I don't want it in my home folder, what if it's a 4 gig file and I only have 1 gig of Space on my home folder and want to download to a network drive, what then eh? Hack through about.config and fix Firefox?

Try going to the Tools/Options (or Edit/Preferences on Linux) menu and selecting Main. In the Downloads section, simply set the default folder to download to or set it to ask where to save every time.
