Tell me… why is there anyone left on this planet who uses Internet Explorer???
Is it because they are lazy and don’t feel like getting something better? Is it because they are afraid of having to learn how to use a new browser? Or is it simple because they just don’t know any better?
If you spend more than 1 hour a day on the internet, you will find huge benefits to downloading a better browser.
Let me introduce you to a little miracle called Firefox. If you already use it, congrats to you!! If you don’t, and you’ve heard of it before, how come you haven’t downloaded it yet?!?!?!?!
Benefits to using Firefox:
1.) A huge decrease in the number of deadly computer Viruses entering your computer.
2.) Websites display properly as the programing for Firefox is done correctly. If you enjoy HTML or building websites, you will notice this immediately.
3.) Faster page loads. Firefox works faster and more streamline on your computer and doesn’t freeze up constantly like Internet Explorer does.
4.) More options. Firefox keeps your browsing sessions a lot more secure and spyware-free. And to top it all off, it also supports the standards religiously and has a wide range of powerful features.
5.) Tabbed browsing. Instead of having many windows open, you only have one window open with many tabs. This keeps your computer running faster and your taskbar a lot less cluttered.
6.) Built in spell checker. Never make spelling mistakes again!
