I find "Restore session" feature in Firefox browser (when you can return to your previously open pages after a system crash / forced restart) very useful. How about you?

That is definitely a useful feature. the one I like best is being able to browse in tabs which is great, plus it is much better than IE for blocking pop ups etc.

Along with many others... You should switch to Firefox because it has more advantages comparing to IE, it's more secure, user friendly, etc... Thanks for replying!

My browser seldom crashes and even when it does, I find myself choosing to restart as a new session anyway. I especially like the built-in spell checker, as well as the host of extensions I am allowed. Thumbs up really. ;-)

The feature that I like with Firefox is the tabbed browsing and the restore function. I also like Firefox because there are many add-on softwares available.

I like this thing. After you press the Windows Key on your Keyboard + ? a box appears at the bottom of the browser, where you can type what would you like to find inthe page you are, it is a very great tool and i must tell you i found it accidentally :D

Among all the nice features of Firefox, I also like Restore Session most. Most of the time I just close Firefox through the Task Manager then I shutdown my computer. So next time I use Firefox, I could easily go back to the web pages I accessed before. That way, I could go back to my work faster.

I downloaded and installed Firefox because I like the ctrl + and ctrl - features. I like being able to change the text size without trouble. I'm so used to Firefix now and this feature, that I have a hard time working on regular computers without it.

I like that the best I guess but have my browser to open as it was closed. If I have 4 discussions that I want to check on first thing all I have to do is close the browser with those tabs open and they will reload every time. I like the spell checker the best. I do not type very well and it lets me know if I hit a wrong key usually anyway! I also like the search box. It has a drop down and I can choose from the 13 different search engines I have on it. I also like the idea of using skins but have tried to download a couple of them and have not had any luck with it. I really want to use the pimpzilla but have tried twice and still no skin! I have only been knocked off firefox 1 time but got knocked off IE all the time. I am an awful bad about having lots of tabs open at once and firefox handles it better than IE. I hear it is safer but can not be sure, I know that i get virtually no pop-ups now but got lots slip through with IE. I could not get any RSS to load to my IE browser but have 2 on here now and they are really great. the bookmarks are much easier to manage and I love the way it is so easy to use by even a novice like me! I still have my Yahoo toolbar on here so I like that I can have it also. That way I can see my mail and know when I have a new message. I thought it was gone but I found the way to add it and am happy about it. Sorry to go on but I love my firefox and there is so much that I like that I could go on forever. Oh did I mention the cute little fox? He is the best!
