Goodbye IE; moving back to Firefox...
May 30, 2006
Today, I'm going back to Firefox, because IE 7 hasn't given me a compelling enough reason to switch. Don't get me wrong - there are a number of features in it that I really like (Quick Tabs being one of them), but almost every one of them can be reproduced in Firefox using a handful of freely-available, lightweight extensions. Most IE addons, on the other hand, are either not free, or simply don't have the same kind of tight integration with the browser that Firefox extensions do. I think that's been one of Firefox's biggest strengths - the massive repository of user-contributed extensions that add value to an already excellent browser.
Sorry IE, you've lost this round. Better luck next time though!
