  1. I had no luck trying to navigate the Cafe with IE. I am on wildblue satellite system, but IE and the Cafe just wouldn't talk.

    Last night wildblue quit. The tech came out and fixed it. I mentioned the problems with the Cafe. He suggested I try firefox. Now the site is lightning fast. If I were any happier there would have to be two of me!

    OH - IO
    I love Firefox. I use it exclusively.
  4. Me, too!
  5. I thought everyone was using Firefox. Until recently when I installed google analytics on my site, and there are still many, many IE users.

    Welcome to the future!

    Just remember to use IE every now and then and keep up to date with win updates if you are using that os. Been using FF for several years and enjoy it. Use IE very little now. Good move!

    I moved to Firefox a week or so ago. So far I see no downside.

    What about Flock???
    I held on to Netscape as long as I could on one of my machines and the other day it kinda forced me to upgrade to something called Flock. It is Mozilla based like Firefox but looks a bit like IE. I have not used it much because I have Firefox on my other machines.

    I have to use IE at work and never have trouble with the Cafe. We have held to IE-6 maybe Hershel's problem is with IE-7.

    I use IE7 most of the time (including right now) and I rarely have trouble with it. I do have Firefox installed and use it a bit, however I'm so used to IE and as I said it seems pretty smooth so I see no real need to change.

    I use Firefox all the time. I have the add-ons that I like and it makes surfing the web a real pleasure.
  12. Never used any thing but IE, no problems at any site and never the café, FF I could never get use too, just me I guess.

    Might have to try it now, IE with vista is a given.

    I use Firefox also, but I also use Fedora for an OS so it is the best option.

    Since I'm a Mac user I don't use Wincr*p IE...

    Firefox and Safari are the only real browsers I'll use...and I don't have to worry that someone is going to hack my machine like with IE...
  15. I'm shocked people are still using IE and resolutions below 1024x768. I see that in my stats all the time. I <3 firefox.

    I used firefox exclusively on my PC, when I got the mac I started using safari and Ive downloaded FF a few times, but safari functions better for my personal use

    I love both, though, but Ive been using only safari on the mac for a year now

    Definitely a FireFox user. I started out using Netscape Navigator, migrated to Mozilla and then to FireFox. I only use IE when a website won't behave in FF.

    I tried FF, but just couldn't get used to it. I'm a typical guy.... I like to keep things simple, and use what I know.

    I just downloaded the IE upgrade to 7. So far I really like it, although some of my buttons moved... I'm not too happy about that. :eek:
