  1. Your browser!


    One of the benfits of being owner/admin is seeing which browser you use to surf this site and most of you are still using IE. Do yourself a favor and download Firefox as it is MUCH MUCH better for surfing message boards. It blows away IE by a longshot. DOwnload it and see how faster the pages load going from forum to forum.

    Firefox

  2. I love firefox!

  3. I love firefox... its what I use for all other surfing, but for some reason firefox will not keep the cookie that keeps me logged in here.. I have to relog in every time... and its only this site that does that.

    Do me a favor and clear all your cookies and cache then try it again. I changed something a couple days ago that might of fixed but you still might have an old cookie in there somewhere screwing things up.

  14. I hope that this was a PAID endorsement

  15. ack! double post

  16. just do this, makes it a lot faster without downloading anything

    1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

    network.http.pipelining
    network.http.proxy.pipelining
    network.http.pipelining.maxreq uests

    Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

    2. Alter the entries as follows:

    Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

    Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining " to "true"

    Set "network.http.pipelining.maxre quests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere in the "aboug:config" page and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.del ay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

    4. Restart Firefox

    tabbed browsing is the biggest, instead of a different window open for each page you have one open and a lot of small tabs under the adress bar.

    extentions can be added, like tunderbird which is said to be the best email program available. there are thousands of extensions, you want it they have it.

    updates are easy to download.

    faster webpages open, especailly with the little fix i posted up earlier.

    ok, should have clarified...

    I read, and it seems gimmicky.

    I'm looking for more user feedback like Pioneer's that all.

  24. i use firefox but it doesn't react well to this site....

  25. Firefox cannot resize embedded video?

    lol, but it's a freakin AD for Firefox!

  26. Im definatly using safari for all internet access...only way to go.

  28. I'm using Netscape and it works much better than IE. No pop-ups. I'm all about that. Works well with this forum too.

  29. Actually Opera is probably faster. Download at: http://www.opera.com/download/

  30. I have opera, firefox is faster for me.

  31. Firefox I command you! No seriously, I love Firefox a lot more than IE, Opera, and even Safari (I'm on an iBook G4).

    The tabbed browsing is def. a plus and the boards load up quicker too.

    While you're at it.. buy an iBook or a Powerbook.. maybe even a G5 Tower.. ok enough of the Mac propoganda.

The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw

  32. I use Firefox, but lately it's started crashing when I click backward in a thread to return to the main search results page in a forum, for some reason.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

  34. I use Mozilla - but Bobo already knows that.

    I've got like 15 pages open now.

  35. things about firefox I love:
    Speed
    Tabbed Browsing
    Bookmarks toolbar!
    Themes, not just the same old boring grey skin.
    Extensions
