After the release of IE8 and the universal acclaim it has gained I don't know how anyone would choose inferior browsers from the competition over the latest iteration in the award winning IE8 series, it's just so slick and so fast that I will never need another browser again.

Sorry, but I think you are an uniformed noob.

Snake Raiser3397d ago

First of all IE8 is one browser, not a series. Second of all it hasn't won many awards. Third of all IE has traditional been last in speed tests against all other browsers. This includes Google chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. While I have my preference any of those choices is superior to IE.

AdBlock Plus is a must-have.
BugMeNot signs your everywhere with a right click.
DownThemAll download accelerator

These are good addons- if you like them, please give me bubbles.

joydestroy3397d ago

flashgot
foxtab

TheDude2dot03397d ago

Begging for bubbles = loss of bubbles

darkmurder3396d ago (Edited 3396d ago )

How did you get your Fast Dial to look like that? All I have is the Chrome style.
Edit:
NVM found it

NoScript, the ultimate security add-on for Firefox. Like Adblock, but with a broader range of protection.

Upgraded to 3.5 already, I'd say its noticeably faster than 3.0

gaffyh3396d ago

Yeah it is definitely a lot faster, seems more stable too.

GEESE3397d ago

But still buggy atm and gets stuck sometimes. So until that is perfected Firefox is still king. I also love how customizable Firefox is. Noia extreme all day!!
