Each day I use Firefox v2.0, I learn more and more about why I hate Internet Explorer. Since switching to FF and adding the "AdBlock Plus" I have yet to have a popup ad (something IE + Google tool bar + a good HOSTS file + Norton personal Firewall couldn't do) and it removes ads within pages too (it helps A LOT when I am on my schools shaky wireless network). Also, being a weather freak, I found a plugin that displays the next 3 days weather in the status bar on the bottom of the screen! Oh well, I just thought I would give FF a little deserved praise!

There's a Mac version of Firefox as well. I use it because it seems faster, but I admit that it lacks a few of Safari's convenences.

I'd like to point out that when you use adblock on my site, you block the google ads, limiting the very small amount of money I make from PV Power :(

I would encourage you all to allow the google ads through, because they are just fairly unobtrusive text ads, and because I am very poor :(
