Well said.


But as stated earlier, when it comes to browsing stuff online I want the fastest stuff I can get for my internet speed, and IE8 is just that, while FF is not.

If by that you mean the idiom, as in time is precious I agree. However I meant the literal translation in a sarcastic tone ;p

I can't stand Internet Explorer. It seems a lot bulkier and slower for me...

IE8 is fast, but FF is still my choice. The speed difference is not significant enough for me to switch, plus FF is way more versatile with the add-ons and stuff. FF is still more secure than IE8.

Nope, and I honestly couldn't care about one, and I don't see why you would want one.

Same. It's statistically the fastest and safest and I have very little use for add-ons so it is the best browser for me.
