I am switching back to Internet Explorer

Posted on 4th May, 2006

I am a browser convert. I like Firefox so much I made it my default browser to replace my previous favorite browser, Internet Explorer.

However, lately I’ve been experiencing weird problems with Firefox. It crashes without warning while I was browsing my Bloglines feed. I really hate this especially when I’ve opened several tabs and getting ready to write.

I also hate the occasional Firefox memory leaks problem. I know there are some plugins to help me minimize this but why would I need to use a plugin for that?

Now I am starting to use IE again, lets see if it crashes when put under the same stress.

    Congratulations! I hate Firefox anyway :p But if you missed the tab-browsing options, try Opera.

    create a new firefox profile will usually solve some weird crash problems.

  • Sorry I won’t use IE. I use either Firefox or Opera only. Try upgrade ur firefox to latest release.

    MENJ: I am using the latest version of IE with tab browsing

    LcF: Thanks for the suggestion. I might give it a try if IE fails me 🙂

    PlanetMalaysia: My Firefox is updated automatically.

    Anyway, I am still using Firefox for normal browsing but for browsing my Bloglines feed, I’ll use IE. It works fine so far 🙂

    Don’t Switch to IE, Because It has its own problem.

    Even i had the same prob with Firefox until i found a extension called Crash Recovery

    Crash Recovery automatically restores all opened pages after a crash happened. It is an “install and forget” extension which you will only notice right after the occasional crash.

    You can download this extension from

    Its just a 21 KB XPI file

    I hope this helps you

    What I dislike about IE, particularly the latest version, is that it’s slow. It’s feel like using a bloatware.

    I’ll give the plugin a try, it looks like a life saver. Thanks!
