Yes I did all the right things to get spell check working but to no avail- now it is working.
Help and advice on pro's and con's of each search engine would be appreciated.
I think Firefox is by far the best of the lot, and for my purposes (i.e. paranoia) it has a lot of useful add-ons for blocking scripts, cookies, ads, and other such crap I don't want to see and don't want on my machine. Slows things down a bit sometimes, but not enough to bother me, and for sites I trust, like this one, I can customize all the settings for what I will and won't allow.
I certainly think so, though a lot of it may be just a matter of opinion and personal preference. I think Firefox looks better and my impression is that it's faster, though I concede I haven't really tested that in any rigorous way. The trade press that I read indicates Firefox security is better too, and I frankly don't trust Microsoft on security and privacy issues. My impression from the changes wrought in Win7 and Win8 is that they think they run my machine, not me, and they want me to put all my data into their custody in the Cloud. Not gonna happen.
Thanks, now one more question...............Will I encounter any hassles in making the switch, like any danger of losing anything in "my favourites"? P.S. I'm dumb when it comes to computers! My computer is running quite slow, would Firefox speed things up?
Is Firefox better than Internet Explorer? I've been on I/E. for years and hesitate to change now.
