It might make you switch ...
I got two reasons (so far) to not switch. That mbunny is never around when you need him.
1/ When replying here at the forum the message box is half the size so this would take up 15 lines.
2/ My scroll mouse don't work with. Not all options anyway.
Just though of another one. It takes longer to start up.
I can take mbunny's place's when he's not here
101 vs. 3
EDIT: #101 should be be your top reason to switch:
"Giant lizards are cool
Much more exciting than a blue e."
Odds are getting better.
Point 7. More control over text zooming
Can zoom text to any size. IE only supports five sizes and has no shortcut keys that I could determine.
Control + scroll.
Woo hoo. Now it's 100 v 4.
Gotta luv that slash screen. And mr lizard instead of that stupid flag.[/edit]
If I ever switch from IE to another browser, it would be Opera.
I'll stick with IE.
I'll stick with IE, since my mouse keys work with it by default.
There's another reason not to switch. What? 101 v. 5? =)
These 101 reasons somehow did not convince me yet. Did not check all but most of these things I can also do in IE (need plugins for some, but it is possible). Can't help but for some, probably irrational, reasons I don't like Mozilla. I did like Opera from the first moment btw.
Discovered a reason not to switch a few minutes ago. Please have a look at the attached screenshot and tell me how to expand the posts.
I prefer IE because it has the golden feature the CTRL+Enter to complete the www.com!
when using Mozilla I always face a silly problem and that is connection refused ,then I will have to type the url again and again , sometimes it won't work unless I open new page.
Yes Mozilla does have some problems, bugs if you will. IE has a few to, not the least of which is the almost daily security bugs that keep comming up.
But to me the biggest reason for using Mozilla is that I haven't seen a pop-up for months now. Even add on pop-up programs let some through, or kill the ones you want.
And the other indespensible feature that I couldn't get by without is the tabbed interface. But I hear the next version of IE will support this. Once you get used to tabs you won't be able to surf without them.
Hey, I'm so far behind you guys...I'm still using Netscape 4.79
yoyo I had the same problem a few days ago. I went into my user cp to change it. I just had a look & now I can't see how I did it.
I am slowly starting to like Mozilla.
Another reason for IE. Mozilla does not like the microsoft site. What a mess.
Guess I know how to change it in my user cp, didn't look into it. I think this feature of the expandable posts only works in IE. Very likely it is not a fault of Mozilla, but caused by the fact that most pages are optimized for Internet Explorer. Don't know how often you come across those things if you use Mozilla. Have it installed quite a while, but when it comes to choose which of my three browsers to start I most often choose IE or Opera. As I said I don't feel at home using Mozilla but I'll keep trying, it has indeed some nice features.
Perhaps the microsoft site does not like Mozilla?
I just typed microsoft and pressed enter, and it went to www.microsoft.com. Same thing with google, hotmail etc.
There's no need for Ctrl+Enter
Control+scroll works ... but you're limited to only 5 sizes.
Have you tried Ctrl+Scroll in Mozilla? Many many more sizes.
Mozilla conforms to W3C standards. A "correctly" coded page should work fine in Mozilla
I'm starting to like this thread
NetRyder when I do the control + scroll all it does is scroll the page. Is there a setting somewhere I have missed?
