This reminds me of an Apple Commercial. Like the iPhone or iPad.

You can see it on this link too.

I like Firefox. It works very well for what I do. I can’t remember the last time I used Explorer. As for the video, I like the chick dressed like a fox 16 seconds in. I don’t remember the rest.

I’ve used Firefox for years now. I never even think about going back to the sucky old IE.

Yup, cool commercial. Would make a good template for a Tea Party spot.

The development cycle has all but ensured the end to my favorite browser. Version 8012 will fix that I'm sure. :) They really try too much to emulate google these days. I used to be able to part together boxes, put avg, zone alarm, and firefox on them and forget about them(after giving them away). Not any more. There is still that memory leak in ff as well. They should go back to what made them great imo. Not following chrome.

Yet another Firefox user here.

Back in the Windows 98 days, a savvy old computer guy twisted my newbie arm so hard, I went ahead and tried it. I soon dumped IE for good, and have never looked back.

I’m now running Windows 7 and almost tried the latest IE when I first fired up the new beast, but no. I’m happy with Mozilla’s browser.

Excellent ad! I saved a copy for future reference.

You know, some Freeper with video skills could do a similar ad video for FR. They could use a collage of photos submitted by members. It would make a nice video to show during Freepathons and as an introduction to newcomers.

It might be a nice project for someone. Just an idea.

"Seems to be working just fine ... that's why I use Chrome.

I like Firefox, but not really Firefox as much as the independent people that make "Add-ons" for Firefox. The add-ons (extentions) that Firefox allows is what sets Firefox apart from the other browsers.

Adblock Plus

BBCode xtra

Beef Taco

BetterPrivacy

Dictionary Search

Downloadhelper

Flashblock

Google Translator for Firefox

Image Zoom

NoSquint

Screengrab

Ghostery

All of these help make my visit to the WWW safe and pleasurable. I get fewer advertisments, I get fewer spys upon my viewership, I get to block annoying FR ads on each FReeperthon drive, I get functionality like being able to transcribe foreign languages with just a highlight and click. You can't beat it.

I have a computer connected to my Sony Bravia 55inch LCD HDTV.

I use theTile Tabs 5.4 add-on to watch FOX News, SKY News, CNN and BBC - all at the same time. Then I just need to click the sound on and off as I switch my focus to what I find interesting.

Get rid of that nasty plugincontainer thing and I’ll come back to Firefox.

I've been gradually shifting over to Firefox on my home PC. Seems to be much better and faster It's not held hostage by giving ads priority...

Do all you FF users run greasemonkey with the FreeRepublic scripts? You can get tree view, video embedding and form posting enhancement. Good stuff!

Firefox’s rapid-release is one of the most asinine ideas any software company every came up with.

Extension/Add-on developers, many of whom develop those extensions as a sideline, are not able to keep up with the rapid-release INSANITY.

I have some extensions that the developers ceased updating with the FF6 release.

Firefox has lost touch with reality. People use Firefox to be more productive. Rapid-release actually hampers real-world productivity.

Firefox still has memory leakage and memory consumption problems. I recently noticed sluggishness with FF. I had only one tab windows open. I loaded Task Manager and found Firefox consuming over 900mb of RAM.

I was a longtime Firefox user but have made the switch to Chrome and have been quite happy there. I think FF suffers from both code bloat and organizational bloat - don’t think they’re lean and mean either as a code base or as an organization.
