You can also right-click on the tab bar and select "New Tab".

This works on Mac, but not sure about PC. Try it and see.

Yeah if you right click on the browser not inside the web page.

damn goraps you just got firefox

btw for anyone who has some spare time on their hands and is interested in computers. go to

ubuntu.com

and download the live cd. there are instructions on how to burn and such pretty straight forward. then put the cd in and restart your pc and have fun.

Don't install unless you know what your doing tho.

Funny thing is though firefox was famous for it's tabs, I never used them.
I kinda prefer the links be on the bottom of the screen, and not the top.

I love firefox for the speed and simplicity though. IE seems to hang on me every single time I turn it on now.

Yuck. I hate trying to find the window I'm looking for down there. Like how after you get 5 or 5 windows open it says click here for firefox windows. That annoys me and I have to open some in tabs.

once i get my 32 wide screen 1080p I won't have to worry about that tho

you mean when they are grouped together?
I turn that option off so they are always separated.
And I mostly only browse with 2 browsers at a time.. sometimes 3..
so it never gets too crowded down there on the taskbar.

I would gladly switch to tab browsing if the tabs were on the bottom.. but on the top.. ehh i'm just too lazy

FireFox is SOooo much finer than IE. Too bad MS forces you to keep IE to do their ***** XP updates. (Pardon of someone mentioned that already)

I have also been a Firefox user for about a year now. I love everything especially the ******. i.e videodownloader and ******* Plus..

Just last week I tried out Safari 3 Beta Version for my PC and the speed was good, but I just didn't like the interface.

Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out:

http://www.apple.com/safari/

.. P.S. According to their website it's considered faster than any other browser out there...

Used to use firefox but it started using too much ram on this old laptop so I've switched to Avant. Has most of firefox's basic features but uses less ram, cpu and looks prettier.

The new IE makes the font look better. I can't go back to seeing it the way it is on firefox. I'm too used to this..
