Advertisement 13 good reasons to switch to firefox by Om Malik Nov 19, 2005 - 1:03 PM CST 7 Comments Tweet Share Post Kill Bill’s Browser offers 13 good reasons to switch to Firefox Advertisement Advertisement 7 Comments Vele November 23rd, 2005 In light of this, I created my own reasons for ditching Firefox at my blog, no the least of which is making the time behind Kill Bill’s browser whine some more. http://vele.blogspot.com/ mahesh November 20th, 2005 It’s funny to see people talking about MS overpricing and at the same time paying $300 – $400 for a slick HardDisk from apple which does nothing but store and play music. madhu venkatesan November 19th, 2005 oops i forgot to add this.. is mozilla is the kill bill browser… opera/safari is the kill bill 2 browser madhu venkatesan November 19th, 2005 well i might be alone, but i hate mozilla. For the mac safari is so much better.. i bet except for greasemonkey you cant complain about anything at all and for the windows side.. believe me Opera is much much better. faster, i havent got a single spyware after visiting the fithiest of the sites. with a naviscope(bet not many would have heard abt it.. google it)+opera is a million times better than mozilla. lets do a simple check here… 1. You’ll only see porn when you want to. Sick of seeing pornographic pop-ups all over your computer while you’re helping your daughter with a research project? Since Firefox blocks pop-ups, you won’t get tons of porn in your face when you’re least expecting it. On the flip side, since Firefox stops spyware from taking over your computer, there will be nothing to slow you down when you go and look for porn. —so does opera and safari 2. Your kids will only see porn when they want to. Sorry, buddy… the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. — parental controls yes 3. Your computer won’t spend its free time telling the world about Viagra soft tabs. Experts say 80% of spam comes from hacked PCs. Firefox has much better security, so your computer will get hacked less. Do it for the children, the children! (caveat: reducing Viagra spam may also reduce total number of children.) — my machine doesnt do thsi with both 4. Mozilla doesn’t inflate prices and use the money to vaccinate children in Africa. Uhh… wait a second. Maybe Microsoft’s monopoly hasn’t been all bad. Better donate to Oxfam. Seriously, you should. — no comments 5. If we knew web designers would hurl themselves off it, we wouldn’t have put the Golden Gate bridge so close to San Francisco. Every year, hundreds of web designers take their own lives rather than continue the hopeless struggle of making their websites IE compatible. Is that what you really want?? Dead web designers????? Cause that’s what you’re going to get!!!!!! See if I care!!!!!!!!!! — safari passed the acid test now.. 6. Keep squinting and your eyes will get stuck like that, stupid Unlike IE, Firefox makes it easy to make text bigger. Just hit Control and “+” at the same time. And Control “-” makes it smaller. same shortcuts here too 7. It will make Bill Gates soooooooooo mad. Seriously– super, super mad. And even more than Bill, let’s think about Steve “I’m going to fucking kill Google” Ballmer for a second (actual quote). If there’s anyone that’s going to absolutely blow a gasket when they see this website, it will be him. (video proof of Steve Ballmer being a crazy, sweaty man.) — believe he will be even more pissed off to see safari`s share go up 8. Mozilla has never made a talking paperclip. – i dont knwo abt this 9. Ritalin is fun, but A.D.D. is not. Tabbed browsing, ad blocking, and pop-up blocking make it a lot easier to stay focused. Better for epileptics too: with Firefox’s ad blocking ability, there won’t be as many large swaths of flashing, pulsating colors on the websites you visit. Nothing worse than getting thrown into a seizure by a “Test your IQ!” ad. –true 10. It’s like switching from dating a 14-year-old to dating an 18-year-old. …for a 16 year old, we mean. You know, it’s a win-win. -oh ya 11. Reduce your weekly family & friends tech support load to 8 hours. You won’t miss hearing this: “I verified my credit card number since the computer said it had spyware, but now I can’t email…” “Honey, I found a new business partner in Nigeria but I can’t email him our bank account info because the internet is broken…” “The Secret Service called this morning and said that our computer sent 20,000 scatalogical emails to the President…” — none of this have happened to me in a while 12. More effective than throwing pies. Switching to Firefox works better than throwing a pie in Bill Gates’ face. Pies just make him more determined, but Firefox steals his mojo. — see answer for #7 13. Because the Department of Justice Lacks Balls. They spent years and years on the Microsoft anti-trust suit and it did absolutely nothing to reduce Microsoft’s monopoly. Great work guys. It’s time to take the law (erm, the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890?) into our own hands. — ya.. true. ——— the point.. dont argue firefox is better. i wont support IE, but my humble opinion there are better browsers than mozilla.. i could be wrong but its my opinion.
