I really like the Firefox browser. I really, really do. I'm not one of those old Netscape hold-outs. I moved to IE full-time when version 4 was released. I had grown tired of Netscape by then, having first used it when it was version 2.
I sang the praised of IE from version 4 on. Other browsers were used and abused, but I always went back to IE. Until now. Firefox is my default browser, and I only use IE for Windows update.
Now, I'm not dumping all over Microsoft here. I use Windows XP. A lot. The wife has XP Home on her computer. I have XP Professional on the laptop (upgrade from XP Home) and on the old Gateway desktop (upgrade from ME). Plus I have another box with XP Home that's not on anything. I had it on the other computer that now has Linux.
Quire honestly, I actually like Windows XP better than Linux. But I want to play with Linux so that I'm not totally out of the loop. So, when all is said and done, I admit I like Microsoft products. And I absolutely love a Microsoft mouse! To me, those are the best. I have the old classic on the Linux machine, and a cordless on the laptop. I say again, I like lots of Microsoft's stuff.
But I loathe Internet Explorer. And I really, really like Firefox. Checking the logs, Firefox accounts for 27% of the visitors, while IE accounts for 65% (63% IE 6, 2% IE 5). The rest is split among Safari, Opera, various versions of Netscape, Mozilla, Konqueror, Lynx, and others.
I'm glad to see someone at Big Redmond likes Firefox. But don't worry; I won't tell anyone.
