(not directed at anyone!, just a rant and opinion.)
don't get me wrong, i'm not defending IE.
i'm just fed up with everyone saying Firefox and Opera are so wonderfull, like the code was written by a supernatural being... or they are packaged in gold!!!
Firefox is a slim-down version of Mozilla, based on a code that isn't targeted by most spyware and viruses. it's security is mostly based on it's inability to comply with certain at risk like active x for one. or layers. and compounded by it's "under the radar" possision in the eyes of those developing spyware.
in my opinion Firefox is nothing brilliant! it's nothing new! if anything it's taken an out of date version of netscape browser technology added some bells and whistles and a tune up and there you go, the "anti spyware, anti popup king of the world!"
what is so inovative about it? what has it done that couldn't already? where is the shinning new developement?
it's nothing revolutionary!
it's like amd vs intell, or chevy vs ford!!!
i'm just sick of all the hype... and i don't understand what's so special about it...
but enough of my rant...
i'm about to go home and use my home PC with Firefox on it
