I’ve switched browsers. Jenni and I were kinda simultaneously surfing on our individual laptops, and she mentioned that she’s using Firefox … the open-source Mozilla browser. I’ve downloaded it before, and for some reason didn’t really like it that much. But I thought I’d give it a try again, and I have to say I’m liking it a lot.
I don’t like the way the bookmarks are organized. Maybe I just haven’t figured out how to organize them yet, but it certainly isn’t intuitive.
Once I figured out the tabs format, and how it’s different from IE7, it was OK. A little different, but not bad.
I think it’s a bit faster to load pages than IE, particularly for Java applications. I also like how you can set it to open pretty much everything in a new tab, and not have multiple browsers open across the bottom of the screen.
So that’s it. No big revelations. I’ll hang with Firefox for a while, see how it is over the long haul, and maybe I’ll switch back like I did before. Maybe not.
Can you tell I’m a bit uninspired? Jenni has to go home tomorrow, and that always bums me out. But we’ve had a great time these past couple of weeks, and pledge starts Monday, which will help take my mind off it a bit. And, Scott’s getting the band back together, and we’ll start improv rehearsals Monday as well. I’m looking forward to performing again.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
