    Urgent

    I hate this becuase i like using firefox but when going back it takes forever in ff but like less than a sec in IE.

    I like using FF more but it feels so mcuh better to use IE. I hope that 1.5 fixes this becuase its so annoying

    they're still on 1.0 so theres lots more improvements to come. Another thing is IE is optimized for windows I guess so maybe it works more efficiently? since MS makes the OS and the browser.

    Not for a few months yet . Funny because IE seems slow to me but FF is fast . But there are tweaks and tricks to speed up FF here on these pages , search for a few .

    u can change e settings man, google it firefox tweaks, firefox doesnt want to slow ur com down, so if u hav lots of memory, then u can change e disk cache, memory cache size such it loads e previous page from the memory cache or disk cache

    FireTune will do all of those "about:config" tweaks with one button click.
    For the timid or lazy it works perfectly.

    That said, I've just switched from FF to Opera and it is significantly faster than any other browser I've tried.
    Still getting a grip on the config settings, but I think Opera is a keeper.

    I have done more firefox tweaks then you can count on the fingers of everyone in the whole world. Firefox still seems slower to me, not to mention it doesnt display alot of web pages/media/jesus correctly. I have tried to give it a chance, Ive gotten used to it now, by removing the IE icon from the desktop, forcing me to use firefox, but I find myself wavering back to IE on ocassion. The only thing I really like about Firefox, is that it saves passwords and everything, but if someone got on my windows name, they could get into anything I wanted so I guess it is good and bad.. I just find IE much better, but am forcing myself to use Firefox and give it a chance, even though I have found no real reason to, using it for over a year now.
