Re: Happy Birthday little fox!

I was using the Fox back when it was still a fiery bird.

I too was eventually lured towards the Fox having been a staunch fan of operatic works, and as a feature-packed alternative to IE it saw a lot of action with me. However, recently that fox has become bloated, fat, greedy, and gluttonous, at least towards me, so I eventually threw the thing out and settled back in for several nights at the Opera. But I still occasionally revisit the Fox for the occasional evening of Loathing.
In the context of this thread, this is bordering on the heretical and you're clearly a demon.

I have tried Opera and Chrome, even whatever the Apple one is, and despite the (sometimes serious and annoying) flaws I still prefer the fox.

Ultimately it was the (sometimes serious and annoying) flaws that made me fall out of love with the Fox. Still, I do like a lot of the things about it, including some of the add-ons like Greasemonkey and Tab Mix Plus. And Download-Em-All... that came in very useful on some days...

As long as I'm not being blasphemous, then I'm OK with that.

Re: Happy Birthday little fox!

Yeah, I like Opera, but I am so comfortable with Firefox, despite it's flaws, that I don't ever stay for long. I've used Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Camino, Mozilla, Netscape, Avant, Epiphany, Maxthon, K-Meleon, Konqueror, and nothing has kept me like Firefox. I have yet to meet it's equal.

It was all in Mozilla first before they decided to separate just the browser from the rest of the stuff.
Yep. So I really ought to have said "parent" instead of "cousin".

I believe the first browser I used was some version of Mosaic. Then went to Netscape, until it became a ridiculously bloated mess that installed crap on my computer in spite of my un-selecting the crap options. Then Mozilla (its descendant, SeaMonkey, is my backup browser). And now the fox. Several versions later, it's a keeper. Opera is okay but I don't find it as customisable as the fox; Chrome is okay but not something that's going to keep my interest at this stage; and the others I've tried have been discarded almost immediately.
