Lots of debates have sparked off on numerous big blogs. Which is better?
I am warning you now, this debate is very one-sided. I don't think I can even call it a debate. Maybe I could call it a debate after some of you have left your insightful thoughts in the comments area 🙂
Firefox rocks. And the latest features that Firefox 2.0 boasts makes it even better.
Firefox 2.0 looks awesome. The new interface has some great glowing mouse-over effects, and more 3D looking navigation buttons.
The tabs look neater and work better. No more opening new windows when you click on a link. Only tabs. And finally there is a close button on each tab. Something IE7 betas has had the upper hand on Firefox with.
Firefox 2.0 seems way faster.
Firefox has also been hard at work making them nasty, geeky hacker people 's lives more difficult by toughening up on the phishing protection. This basically means they won't be stealing your credit card information whilst making a paypal transaction. Well not as frequently at least.
What impresses me the most is Firefox's new spell check feature. Firefox has managed to point out 2 spelling mistakes in this post already, with a simple right-click I can select the correctly spelled word and Bob's your uncle.
There are a whole bunch more new features that excites geeks like me. I'm not going to rattle them off, just look at the release notes.
I’m not even going to waste my time in rattling off the benefits of IE7, the only one I can really think of is that it is a little less resource intensive. Although some beg to differ. Obviously, Firefox can’t win all the fights, after all Firefox has to work on a Microsoft Platform.
Maybe I can give IE7 the trophy for better web feed handling, although Firefox 2 seems to have fixed all their little problems here.
Anyways, run along and download either Firefox 2.0 or Internet Explorer 7. Oops I forgot to hyperlink the second one. Sorry 🙂
