Hi,

Now having moved up to a new laptop and vista, what is this Firefox thing and is there any advantage for me being a basic internet user?

Ian I do not profess to be an software expert but I moved to Firefox around 18 months ago.

It seems more stable and with a few more features than IE.

I for one prefer it

Have to agree.

It seems faster, more stable, spell checker built in - wont think so if you see my selling.

A couple of things it don't do but can live without.

Biggest advantage to firefox is that it is not Microsoft and most viruses are written to attack Microsoft.

I prefer Firefox, much easier to use than IE, cuts down the pop up adverts to virtually nil, certainly recommend.

Mmm, might need to invest in a new lappie soon, Flossy four paws has been playing "kitten on the keyboard" and has ripped the buttons off of some letters, fortunately, unimportant ones so I'll live with it for a bit :oops::oops::cry
