    Hey guys, Ive heard a lot about FireFox, but I just want to have some thing cleared:
    -Is FireFox an aplication like Internet Explorer or NetScape?
    -If it is, is it better that IE?
    -If so, what are the most relevant advantages?
    Thank you,

    1. its just another web browser
    2. better security and is free as in speech as well as beer.
    3. does not use active x which runs code without any sort of sandbox which is very dangerous

    1. Yes, it's a browser. Based on Mozilla, without any bloat.
    2. Yes it is. Firefox is a helluva lot more secure than IE.
    3. Well apart from point 2, there's things like the built in Google search feature, and you can install literally hundreds more search engines if you want.
    The ability to add extensions is a major drawcard too.
    It also has some sweet themes available, so it's skinnable.

    But don't take my word for it. Try it yourself.

    Yes
    In my opinion, yes
    I like the quick searches, also there are many extensions that just make life much nicer
    You're Welcome

    I have to add that it can be buggy.

    The latest version, 1.0, is just past the beta stage. There will be better versions coming out.

    Mainly it's just not so bloated and tied to your O/S like IE is. This the biggest security flaw with IE.

    But, as with any browser, it has it's security issues. Thankfully, because it's not so widely used, they haven't been fully exploited.

    The coolest thing is, Firefox has captured 10% of the browser market and Micro$oft's share has dropped to below 90% for the first time ever!

    hope that helps.

    p.s. importing & installing your IE favorites is a snap.

    I can't stop starring at your avatar lol .

    Anyways Firefox kicks IE's gay ass. IE is the most vulnerable pos broswer to spyware and viruses from the internet. Mozilla firefox has an intergreted pop up blocker, you can copy and link with just 2 clicks, and alot more. I have to say the program can buggy at times but its well worth it , if you are looking for a good easy to use browser try firefox
