Wow, do I miss FireFox

By jdclyde ·
Here I sit in a training room waiting for class to start, and the only browser is IE.

So I figured while I have about five minutes, "hey, I got time for a quick TR fix!"

LORD do I miss not being able to push in on the scroll button on my mouse to launch a new tab! Once you get used to a few of the features, it makes it hard to go back to IE.

Anyone else ever feel the same way? No? Sad for you!

GAAAAA! And the scroll button isn't even working on this system to scroll down the pages! This is barbaric!

Now that I have Firefoxed, I will not go back. Thanks to Vanessa, I don't have to.

You're right- the feature set that Firefox provides makes IE look pretty sad. The theory is that the next gen IE is much better but I don't know that it can surpass FF for ease of use.

I will be thinking of you and hoping that you get out of your class soon- and get back to a REAL environment!

Seamonkey? How can anything be better than Firefox?

by Jaqui In reply to What?

Seamonkey isn't designed to look and feel like internet explorer.

Seamonkey, the full suite Mozilla browser, is a smaller application on the hard drive than firefox.
yet is 100 times more capable.

I didn't know there was a portable firefox. My work place only has ie, and I've just delt with it. Chit mon, no more ie even on the go. Got to love it.
First I got turned on to 'EditPad' which can be made portable. Now I have a decent editor at work, and now I'll have a decent browser. All thanks to TechRepublic.
Does it get any better then this?
Wait, yes. I could be sitting at home watching that James Bond movie I just bought while still earning the same income.
Hmmm, oh well. For lifes little treats(portable browsers and editors) I give thee thanks.
