Yeah, I have a Mac and I even use it. Firefox is the best browser on any platform, PC or Mac.

I use to like Safari and loved everything about it, but the back button would have problems at times. So I switched to FF and love it even better.

Great browser. I usually change the theme, so it looks like Safari to mach my Mac environment. I'm a perfectionist.

i cant even use other web browsers now that I've been with FireFox the last few years.

The fact that it doesnt crash once or twice a day like IE is what made me switch. Its better popup blockers and tab system kept me.

Firefox is easily the best browser on the face of the planet. As Dodonpa said, there's a way to make it even faster.

Quote:
1. Create a new tab and type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
Enjoy.

Yes, Firefox has tabs. It had them before Internet Explorer actually.

Yep, that's the only problem I had with FireFox. When something like that happened, I would always use IE for that certain website.

The easiest to open tabs -and to close tabs- is by clicking with the scroll wheel in your mouse on the link to open a tab and on the tab itself to close it.

Actually, I've developed some kind of beef against crapxlplorer. Oh, and don't forget to get the a-d-bl-o-c-k-plus plugin. Makes wonders.
