Default Firefox Queries?

Hi

I downloaded Mozzilla Firefox 1.0.5 and i have noticed that it loads the webpages slower the IE. Iam wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

Thanx

they may look slower because it shows the site as it loads IE tends to stay white until the webpage is loaded thats what i think. FireFox takes a bit longer (not much) to load images but is faster over all when loading!

Over all FireFox is safer and faster then IE and before i forget you may have had them pages cashed in IE don't forget FireFox will download them again!

Hope you are enjoying FireFox

The entire Mozilla suite is slower than IE - they have different rendering engines.

I've got the pipelining switched on and every speed tweak using about:config, but IE still streaks ahead I'm sorry to say.

The only reason I use FF is tabbed browsing. There is absolutely no other reason, it isn't even any more secure in my experience.

Firefox owns IE silly no questions hands down without a doubt.

yes they do have different rendering engines but i disagree FireFox is slower then IE. I have tried and tested at college and here FireFox is more stable and is faster.

Tabbed browsing is excellent but not a new idea!
