Stop Explore-ing

Firefox is the world's fastest growing browser. It is simple to use and is packed with features to enable safer browsing. With more than 100 million downloads in the past year, Firefox is definitely a phenomenon. I myself don't know why I shifted, but once I did, I've seldom used Internet Explorer.

But here's a site that gives an impressive list of reasons why you should consider seeing the world through Firefox.

Reason #1 sounded fairly convincing to me...

1. You'll only see porn when you want to.

Sick of seeing pornographic pop-ups all over your computer while you're helping your daughter with a research project? Since Firefox blocks pop-ups, you won't get tons of porn in your face when you're least expecting it. On the flip side, since Firefox stops spyware from taking over your computer, there will be nothing to slow you down when you go and look for porn.

Another site, ExplorerDestroyer.com, offers users a script that they can put on their pages to annoy IE users and ask them to shift to Firefox. The site also offers a partner program, through which you can get $1 for making a user shift to Firefox. Now, that's taking militant activism to another level...

Haven't you moved to Firefox yet?

Started using Firefox a year back and haven't looked backed since. Its one of the best software I have ever used. My favorite feature of Firefox is its tabbed browsing something that Microsoft finds so offensive to include in IE. Besides, plenty of 3rd party plugins are also available. I certainly would recommend this software to anyone who is looking for an IE alternative.
