The Firefox experiment

Recently I've been having some problems with Facebook locking up on me when I use Internet Explorer. It didn't matter what computer I was on. So, a friend of mine suggested I try using Firefox.

So, I finally caved in and downloaded Firefox. Facebook still had some issues, but at least it didn't lock up. The issues are fixed...for now, though. Out of the blue, I decided to try using Firefox for my dropping. Needless to say, it cut out a good 30-45 minutes from my dropping. Not to mention many things that IE wouldn't or couldn't show for whatever reason were showing up, so I guess I'll be doing my dropping from Firefox for now, except for at work where I can't download it, but I don't do more than about 10 or 15 drops there anyway.

You want something that will speed up your drops? Try Google Chrome. Fastest browser I've seen (and that's odd, seeing how it's built on a Safari engine but is faster for some reason).

Give it a try. You'll love it.

I could use something fast, but I tend to think my computer is going to cause me to pull my hair out regardless!

I used IE for years until 5 months ago, I switched to Firefox. One of the very few smartest decisions I have ever made. Google's Chrome is fine too but lacks lots of plug-ins. I do Stumbles but Chrome doesn't have the toolbar like Firefox does. I also can't use Chrome with Wordpress either. It messes up with the posts.

IESUX! The web would be a better place without it.

Glad you saw the light.

Did you download Entrebar? It is a Firefox plug in that allows you to load multiple entrecard blogs in tabs and you just move from tab to tab doing your drops. Very fast, particularly if you have multiple blogs. You can reload a string of tabs when you switch to one of your other blogs.

Yep, Firefox is the way to go, and you should get the Entrebar a.k.a Entrecard toolbar, if you haven't already that is. Saves so much time.
