IE8 is faster, but if you like Firefox, stick with it.

It's PCAdvisor again!

MS under-table bucks?

That's not what will convince me to use IE8. I'm very fine with Firefox, and in case of emergency i can use Chrome. I use IE only for the sites that don't accept any other browsers (like some korean MMORPG sites or online antivirus scanners).

that require ie, I use IE TAB. Works great. Its a good little add-on.

iHEARTboobs3491d ago

Yeah, i just discovered the IE tab. Good stuff.

I don't really know since I haven't used IE for like 5 years. If it still does have Active X controls. Have fun with tons of viruses.

IE8 is milliseconds faster...until you do a couple firefox hacks. thats whats so great about FF, its open source and allows for a ton of changes. IE8 is a good step up but no where near FF in terms of speed AND usability.

edit: hey disagree fairies. care to explain your side of the story or are you too illiterate to argue so just pushing disagree will suffice?

doesn't make them right. It just makes them ignorant. I'm with you on this one. bubblz

Sangria3492d ago

Whoever would praise IE over Firefox or Google Chrome is just dumb ignorant.
You can easily use Fasterfox extension, for example, to get sites quicker, without necessarily having to mess up with servers.

haha yeah you guys are right, i just like to hear the reasoning behind their 'theories'. These are the same people that have a virus three times a year.

bubbles+ for all.

Well I guess it's time to move on; I've been using Firefox for almost a year now coz it was the fastest web browser I knew about. But since IE is back in the game I guess I'll have to go back to using it.
