Revision of my browser usage!

I usually use firefox in my daily Internet usage, but if I'm banking or buying stuff I usually use IE because I in the past have experienced problems with limited support of firefox behind https secured connections by certain companies.

But according to this article IE had public critical vulnarabilities without fix patches for more than 9 months of 2006 whereas firefox only had 9 days.

The reason for this might / could be that approx 80% of internet usage are done using IE, and as such makes it more profitable for cypercrooks to create the vulnarabilities, but I don't care about the reasons!!! From now on I'm just using firefox and if it doesn't work I'll use IE…


Firefox 2.0

I've just installed the Firefox 2.0 browser, and my initial reaction is; "oh, my god, this is good!"

Initially these are the key points I like the most: 

  • It installed fast and without rebooting.
  • It handles rss-feed as any other page
  • It "remembers" all tabs, so if you close one by mistake, you simple re-open it!
  • It seems VERY fast

I thought about upgrading to IE7.0 as well. It would be nice to have a benchmark competition.
