    "A fast, intelligent, excellent browser"

    November 30, 2012  |   By tomstars


    I have used most browsers including IE, Opera, Maxthon and Chrome.
    Firefox hands down blows them all away. Why is FF great? Speed. It is consistently the fastest browser by far. It is also extremely customizable. You can make it look and act exactly how you like and a lot of this customizing ability is built in to the browser. You can also select from a huge assortment of add-ons.

    I also like that I can have a unique search field separate from the URL field. The favorites button allows you to add favorites and also lists all the favorites all from the same click (chrome should get a clue here).

    I was an IE fan for a while until they changed the browser to include a combo url/search field that can't handle email address searches. Chrome does it better but lacks an intelligent favorite button design (one click add favorites and list favorites) and honestly does not seem all that fast.

    Firefox is updated frequently and seems to always get a little faster each time.


    Not much. I do have a friend that when he closes FF sometimes the process remains and he has to launch task manager to close it so he can relaunch the browser. I haven't experienced this much.

    Overall I'd rate Firefox excellent in every way.


    Very fast, customizable, intelligently designed and updated frequently, it it the best browser available.
