Mozilla Firefox 0.8

I downloaded and installed this a short time ago thiw evening. It has immediately impressed me by being easy to use, automatically importing all my old favourites and being clearly faster than IE6 on my 1Mbps BT adsl connection. I would certainly recomend you give it a try.

I use it on Mandrake Linux and the word "Fast" has been re-invented!!

just gone from 0.7 to 0.8. anyone have trouble with embedded video on pages? pages with .wmv embedded cut me off my dialup connection, and get a 'plug-in' problem. pages work ok in IE.

otherwise it is by far the fastest and best browser.
since installing the sun java i have picked up the java.byte.verify trojan twice. maybe just coincidental, but never had problems with windows java. firefox obviously offers an easier way to control use of java anyway.

I am still using v.0.7 and I am very happy with it. It is an excellent and flexible browser. However, I am still using Mozilla as it is so convenient to use the Incorporated email program, so essential in my daily communication. I am closely watching the development of both these programs. Being minor browsers, Mozilla and Firefox should be relatively free of Malware, etc.

Yes firefox is quick but having no E-Mail link is a pain.
Have you tried Avant browser.
