Yes, but what about those of us who bought into the Firefox dream (and the Mac dream for that matter) and are disillusioned?

Have to say I'm fed up with reading the sanctimony about it all (sorry!). I wouldn't mind the alternative (non-Microsoft) point of view being expressed, if only it wasn't done in such a sanctimonious way.

I wasted my money on a Mac for home use, and I'm forced to use Firefox to make it usable for browsing, but I much prefer IE at work. Trouble is, you don't allow us to say it. And this fabled/famous NYT ad certainly won't put a balanced point of view.

Neville Hobson

There are quite a few alternatives, Andrew. Firefox isn't the only game in town.

I'm not an expert on Macs, but what about Safari? Even IE for the Mac?

On Windows, you've got Maxthon and Opera, to name but two. I like Maxthon a lot, the one I used before switching to Firefox.

I'm no Microsoft basher, believe me (I like their software!), but the reality is that IE and browsers based on IE present too many security risks and bad behaviour when compared with Firefox. IMO.

Plus I just like the way in which Firefox marketing is happening!
