going on safari with a firefox

doesn't that sound EXOTIC? it's really just the silly names of web browsers. what was wrong with something self-explanatory like, say... internet explorer? told us EXACTLY what we were to do with it.

when we got the imac, it came with the browser safari, and i noticed that blogger lost many of it's posting abilities, such as spell check (horror) and links. i could probably do this in html, but you remember how inept i am, right? someone told t that firefox is a better mac-based web browser, and will show many things on the internet that safari will not. lo and behold, they were right! so here i am on firefox, and i'm able to check spelling, link, italicize, and change colors again.. ain't life grand?

I've heard a lot about Firefox. Seems like a cool feature. :)

I love FireFox. I use the "Morning Coffee" add on every day!

I have Safari and have thought about adding Firefox to the machine. You're the first person I know who has had experience with both, so I'm thinking now that I should get with it and do the Firefox thing.

hmmm...wasn't Firefox a movie from the eighties? I think I saw it at the drive in, double feature with My Bodyguard (which had a naked boy butt in it! woohoo).
Thanks for the package. We loved our little treats, and TT slept with his!

I, unfortunately, do not have a mac, but I still use Firefox for my browser. I got so tired of all the pop-ups on other browsers.

It is grand.

The fox and I made friends a while ago; he even eats out of my hand now.

I didn't even know there was another way to access the internet until recently. I am so far behind. Glad you are enjoying firefox.

I love firefox! It has a much more comfortable way to search for words on a page as well.

I prefer using Firefox on my mac .. why because safari kinda glitches a lot, especially with gmail.

Firefox is probably one of the best browsers out there at the moment...you won't go wrong with it!
