Happy 5th browsing birthday… Firefox

explorerINTERNET EXPLORER dominated the browsing business since the www invades our online communication and I cant imagine myself without Explorer in my notebook. Few months ago my explorer browser broke down after upgrading to the latest version (V.7) via free upload website. I bought my notebook in 2006 with Explorer V.6 and prior to the break down constant automated reminders  pop-up the screeen recommending to upgrade my IE browser to a faster and efficient browsing experience.

At first, I was doubting it because of numerous spammers attacking my harddrive, including my virus scan software (VGA). I have legal copies installed in my notebook, however, most of the time while opening various websites (blogs, youtube, etc.) the spams are activated and reminding to upgrade…blablablah. In other words, I was convinced to upgrade to the new version, but after awhile it was ok, and but then the problem occurred when I had my short holiday in Manila and Bangkok.

I was excited to do my regular blogging while visiting the shopping malls since most of them have wireless connections, including Starbucks and other coffee shops. I dont know but, I could not even connect thru my latest Explorer browser! I was hopeless and disappointed… wished that I did not upgrade it at the first place. So, most of the time, I have to pay visiting internet coffees/shops just to update my blogs and send emails.

AFTER MY HOLIDAY I consulted my colleague at uni on how to resolve thfirefoxis browsing problem. He suggested to try Mozilla/Firefox. Before I decided to change my browser, I visited several sites to find out more about it and other browsers just to be assured that I will not encounter problems in the future. Finally, I decided to install FIREFOX and now it is perfectly working!

WELL, FIVE YEARS AGO (NOVEMBER 9) FIREFOX became instrumental in making the web a better place for blogging thru WORDRESS. According to the wordpress statistics, Firefox shared almost 46% of the browser users, followed by Internet Explorer (39%). For more information, please CLICK HERE.
