    Re: What do you like Firefox?

    It just works really well.

    I am a software developer and one of the things I do is program web applications (in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.). One of the most annoying problems when developing web applications is that different browsers render web pages differently and implement features differently, despite the standards.

    Firefox fortunately adheres well to web standards, so that web applications look and work as they should.

    Internet Explorer is the most used browser, but it is also the browser that deviates most from the web standards and contains the most bugs and quirks.

    I like the flexibility. The base Firefox is good, but with extensions I can make it exactly like I like it.

    The only disadvantage that I can think of is that it is slow to open.

    Well, some (not including me) don't like how it's logos are trademarked. Also, the memory usage can be high (higher than some other lighter browsers), but it is lower than IE generally, which is good. Of course, since it is the #2 browser, not all pages look the same when you're developing and targeting IE as a browser.

    I use Firefox because I'm very comfortable with it, and it's very extensible (plus, the new awesome bar is really handy). I can't live without extensions like Adblock Plus. Unfortunately though, it uses a lot of ram.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    I use Firefox because it's the default browser in Ubuntu Linux.
