I went from Netscape to Firefox. About four years ago Firefox was getting too slow and Chrome was much faster, so that's what I'm with now. I'm sure Firefox has gotten better, but I see no reason to switch back. One nice feature with Chrome is that I can sync it between my desktop, laptop, and phone. I have to use IE for certain websites that only work with IE.

The real browser of champions is Links, though.

I am sure you will like it. I have tried just about every major web browser out there and I love this one. Let me know what you think about it. Have a great weekend.

I have been very busy and haven't had a chance to download it and give it a try but I am going to do that this weekend. If it works out well maybe I can do a review about it on one of my websites. Thanks again

It works with either IE or Firefox Engine (Gecko) .. I use it with IE6 (Sometimes I use IE6 directly but usually I use MyIE2)

I tried one time to get it to work with GECKO but I couldnt figure out how to do it!! (I didnt have firefox placed in the same folder maybe,i dunno (Just experienting..... This browser MyIE2 is amazing... I have had this browser MANY YEARS and still finding out new things I didnt know it can do!!))

Actually it is nothing close to Firefox. It is a Chromium based browser, just like Google's Chrome browser. Those 2 are similar in functions except if has less crashes (I have had none) than Chrome and is a lot more secure than Chrome. I used to use Firefox exclusively until an update they made changed some things and slowed it down from what I was used to and it started to crash a lot and started showing more bugs. I pretty much used only Firefox from when it first came out until that update happened.

I been recently using the Slimjet browser. It's like Google Chrome, but faster with a few neat features Chrome doesn't have. Slimjet is now my favorite default browser. So far, it's the fastest internet browser I have ever used! JMHO though!
