I’d been using my Internet Explorer browser for years but I began to find it slow and difficult to load. I had been using Chrome but the memory had become too full and I had problems with getting the browser to open even though I’d tried deleted some of the history.
I’ve used Firefox before but only with a Linux netbook and not on my main computer. I’ve been happy using Firefox so I thought I’d see how well it worked with Vista. It took seconds to download and I didn’t have to restart my computer to get it fully installed like you have to with some browsers.
Firefox loads very quickly as well. It is much quicker than Internet Explorer, and I’ve found it faster than Chrome too. It doesn’t use up too much memory either, which is another bonus. I’ve only downloaded the browser so far but there are many more add ons that I could make use of such as setting the options to prevent websites from tracking me, an important option if you don’t want sites you visit tracking you online; there’s other privacy and safety options as well but I use my anti-virus for that.
I had the option of transferring my web history from my old browser into Firefox so I used it, and the use of tabs makes Firefox clutter free to use. The Firefox browser also acts to block pop ups and viruses as well.
There are many other things I can do with Firefox such as using some of the plug ins. I haven’t had a close look at these yet but I know I have options such as No Script to help stop malicious scripts running; this is an option that I’ve used on my netbook and it has worked well. I've being used Firefox on my laptop for a few weeks and its worked smoothly with no problems.
