Even though the customization seems to be a big thing for everyone with firefox I prefer to just use the normal version.
Runs better imo and looks good enough.

its good you actually looked it up, but most of those links are about the memory usage of the explorers... and btw one link you provided showed FF2 using less memory with the same ammount of tabs open as explorer. On top of that, he said he favored opera, which he didnt bother showing results for. But memory usage is not what our initial argument was about KoB, so lets not stray from that topic.

Also, lets introduce sites that people are not just gonna wonder about. The first one will say how fast it is compared to IE7, and the rest just go on about why exactly FF2 is better than IE7.

::EDIT:: oh btw, dont try proving a point with a website that is fire fox myths... it only shows someone is a fanboy, and a fanboy that lacks hte knowledge to understand security.

Who cares about FF2?
It's all about 3.

memory usage is extensively relevant to my argument. why would I use a program that hogs more memory, which in time will slow down my computer significantly?

and let me just soak this up for a bit. you just told me not to stray from topic when you fucking originally derailed the argument talking about your retarded friend's PC. the argument was originally about MY COMPUTER however you derailed it and made it a general thing so don't even pull the irrelevant card because you're being a hypocrite by saying so.


::EDIT:: oh btw, dont try proving a point with a website that is fire fox myths... it only shows someone is a fanboy, and a fanboy that lacks hte knowledge to understand security.


did you ever stop to think that everything you just listed might be fanboyism as well? the fanboy argument doesn't work anymore. if this is your argument you're mistaken entirely because just about everything can be called fanboyism.

I don't see any fanboyism in the firefoxmyths site, either. he clearly says "No I do not hate Firefox." he only calls it an average browser with good extensions because... well, that's what it is.

did you know that 5 hours after firefox 3 came out there was already security issues? yeah. supreme browser my ass.

hte knowledge to understand security.


honestly, what is there to understand? even an incompetent retard could understand it. the site gives you sources and examples of everything. simply reading the articles is enough. I didn't know you had to read the article sub-conciously to find a hidden meaning and hire private investigators to understand the concept which is oh so clearly obvious.
