I soon changed to Firefox version 3,as soon as it was released.Its better than its previous version of Firefox version 2.1 and also a lot more better than IE 7.If you haven't changed to Firefox version 3,I highly recommend you to change to it.It has lot more speed and it DOES NOT FREEZE QUITE OFTEN LIKE VERSION 2.1,of course only if you open 10 or more tabs in version 2.1.But,in version 3,so far it has never froze even when I opened 20-30 tabs. Firefox version 3 Rocks! Cheers! Have a nice day Happy mylotting and happy earnings.

I've been a fan of Firefox from day 1 and use v3.0 all the time. But from my website stats I can see that IE is still way ahead the most popular browser with about 80% of users and Firefox about 17%. Safari and others make up the rest. However, IE is steadily declining in popularity and Firefox gaining. There are a few sites that need IE addons to work but very few now. The thing I like about Firefox is that all the viruses are written for Windows programs. Don't use Windows and you don't get nasties.

Not just IE7 but IE in total. Same as Firefox - all versions. Just taken the stats from one of my sites and these are accurate figures for visits this month up to yesterday:- MS Internet Explorer..63707...74.7 % Firefox ..............16712...19.6 % Safari.................2466....2.8 % Mozilla................1005....1.1 % Opera...................585....0.6 % Unknown.................577....0.6 % Netscape................111....0.1 % Camino...................27.... 0 % Sony/Ericsson Browser (PDA/Phone browser)..17...0 % Konqueror................13.... 0 % OK, the figures are a bit different from what I said going from memory but the margin is still very much in favour of IE.

Just as a follow on from those stats I then sorted them into versions from todays stats. I won't give you the whole lot because there are loads of Firefox versions going back to one guy who is still using Firefox 0.5.6 and 5 visits from people using IE 3.02!! For IE, I had 29 visits using IE 8.0 (I didn't know there was v8.0?) but IE7 was 40.6% and IE6 33.5% - the first time I've seen IE7 overtake IE6. Then loads of versions of IE5 then 21 visits with IE4.01 and then venerable IE 3.02 For Firefox, v2.0.0.15 is the clear leader with 11.1% and 10491 visits then Firefox 3.0 with 5.2%. Firefox 3.0.1 had 30 visits and v3.0.2 had 4 visits. Loads of people are still using versions of Firefox 1.5.0.*

Yes I am using firefox 3. I like it very much. The main feature I noticed that it has got an added feature for downloading. When we download, the details and remaining time were shown in the browser window.

Hi, friend, I don't know much about internet, always my friends will help me download something, and I just use it. So , now what I use now maybe is the oldest browser , next time you say some thing about the net, you may put up a photo, then I will get what you say about. Because even now I'm using the firefox, it's possible that I don't notice it.

I am using Firefox 2.0.0.15. I downloaded the new one, but had to uninstall and reinstall this one. The reason is it gave me problems. If there was more than one browser or tab open, it would hang up. I would have to reboot my machine to get out of them. I decided I didn't need the problems right now on my laptop. I may download it again when they have the bugs worked out.

while my friend I was actually using the latest version but the thing is a few of the plug-ins were not working with the latest version and that is the reason I had to give up on using the latest one. I think it is a beta version and they must be walking on the same to get better results. So when they released the proper version with the fix to all those defects I will be definitely using the same. After all it is the strongest browser till date and I love using Firefox.
