Hearing the Other Side Calling
Well, as most of you know, I'm a staunch IE guy. I've used IE7beta1 on my main system since it was released, and I like it an awful lot. There are some things about true IE7 that bother me, which is why I haven't upgraded all the way. But at work I use Firefox, even though the browser tends to make me seethingly angry (especially when it decides to not fetch a new version of a page that I'm working on). I've long said (to the point where Jonathan got after me for endlessly harping on it) that Firefox is superior to IE in one and only one way -- the Javascript Console. Jonathan pointed out another -- Firefox is top-rate in add-ons, and he suggested a few I should take a look at. At first glance, these seem rather nice, actually. If they pan out, I can see how someone could be tempted to use Firefox for their main browser; especially since 2.0 implements a few nice features they were missing, and these add-ons tend to fix things that always irritated me about Firefox. They haven't converted me yet, but the Mozilla folks are trying. And they're doing a far sight better than most of their followers are.

    Well, that would be because some (most) of it's followers don't know a lot about what makes you irritated with the browser to begin with and haven't ever actually sat back and made a point by point comparison between the two browsers.

    All I know is every time I use I and then run Adware it finds like a 101 IE Tracker things which bother me.

    The ad-ons for Firefox are rather nice though. The Stumble! button is amusing to a large degree.

    The tracking cookies are not unique to IE. They're planted by every browser on the planet, as they're a side effect of websites. If you're draconian in your settings or don't visit sites that have, say, ads on them, you can avoid most or all of them. But they're nothing to blame on IE.

    So what's the Stumble! button do?
