Firefox much faster than IE

Get Firefox! For those of you using IE as a browser, you might want to try out the new Firefox 1.0PR . It loads pages much, much faster than IE (very noticeable if you have a dialup connection). It also, via the aid of "extensions" (small plug-ins that you download and which are easily installed), gives you all the added bells and whistles of browsers like MYIE2 which are "skinned" versions of IE with extra features. Firefox (and Mozilla) also offer more security, in part, due to the fact that there is a much smaller user base for them, than IE. Some of the extensions I have found to be useful are:

  • URL2NewTab 0.2

  • easy Gestures 2.11

  • Tabbrowser Preferences 0.6.13

  • Super DragandGo 0.2.3

  • Foxy Tunes 0.61

  • Dictionary Search 0.6.3

  • Reload Every 0.3.2

  • Google Preview 0.7

There are more than 162 extensions. You can see them here
