Anyone else here use lolifox?  Just discovered it a couple days ago and it seems to be pretty useful.

Not quite the same.  It's based on the current alpha build of Firefox, and changes some things around (mostly the FTP-browsing interface).  It also completely changes the default set of bookmarks and such.

Yes these are probably different and more advance settings of FF 1.5 but this seems to be a "preview" of the next version which is Firefox 2.0 :)

Plus the plans for FF 2.0 is not yet finished. There said it will talke a long time for Firefox to complete the whole setting of the new upcoming version.

Heh, that lolifox has interesting taste in additional bookmarks. But if it's not worse than other browsers (I never could decide between IE and Firefox), than it's okay :D

Until trying lolifox for a few days, I liked it better than IE (Not only because the cute picture :) ). Tabs are useful (even though IE 7 has this too, as far as I know), and the whole browser seems more ordered. Now I'm sad when I need to use IE (if I'm not browsing at home).

Post by: IanDanKilmaster on March 20, 2007, 12:56:58 AM
Yeah, I used lolifox on my old Windows computer, but I was really disappointed when I discovered I couldn't install it on Ubuntu.  Of course, I was mistaken in this "discovery" and soon learned how to get to work on my new system (hooray).  Funny thing is, I really don't use it as much as I did on my Windows system.  Oh well, it is a pretty good browser to use if you're an anime fan.

I'm surprised there are so many people into it.  Perhaps it'll be a nice propaganda tool for open-source usage, lol.

You're right, there's not that much to it, along with what you've already mentioned, it also comes with preinstalled add-ons.  I really don't know much about the performance aspect of it, so I really couldn't break things down and really offer any explanation of any real advantage there is to using lolifox.  I was just mentioning how useful it could be for persuading new users to firefox.

its not about inovation, its about functionality.  They would be fools NOT to copy it.  YOu all are just pissed off because it makes firefox just a little less special.

Post by: Nidas on April 13, 2007, 09:04:51 AM
In hindsight, tabbed browsing was an obvious innovation (like the catflap - cookie if you get the reference). I don't begrudge Microsoft stealing the idea. I use lolifox, not because I have any particular brand loyalty, but because I consider it the best current browser for my needs. If one comes along that surpasses it I'll change my browser. I'm not some kind of browser fanboy.

oh and Opera sucks, the speed is overrated and it fails at rendering some sites

I still use IE, ive never really felt fire fox was that much better when I tried it.  Its always seemed to me mostly to be a act of defiance from the anti microsoft people.

I'm not an anti-Microsoft person (don't have serious problems with their OSes), but as I experienced, firefox/lolifox is a bit more stable.
Title: lolifox
Post by: CaptBrenden on April 13, 2007, 12:05:21 PM
maybe IE just hates you all, but I cant ever say that I thought it was unstable.. it never crashes on me.  Unstable is not what I would call it.

The thing about firefox is as Nejin said comfortable because of the extensions given by the community, and CaptBrendan did you really try to learn to use firefox, because it is quite easy to use.

Probably :p Its especially good for imageboards but it works great on some anime download sites too. I think Opera can do the same, but like I said earlier, Opera renders some sites poorly because most sites are designed primarily with IE and Fox in mind.

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"like what?

For most people, the biggest advantage of Fox is that with a couple of plugins you can block almost every ad on the internet ;010 Most people though, after using Fox for a while, do make more use of the plugin system. Not that IE is really all that bad, I still have to use IE6 at uni, so if thats working fine for you theres little point in changing I guess

What is there to learn? It's a browser! Type and Click! and extensions? it's all XML and ECMAScript. I don't understand what's to learn.

Another advantage to firefox is it's cross-platform. M$ dropped IE for Mac back in 2003, and they've never made one for Linux. To use IE you either have to fanagle it into Wine, or run some emulator. Too much hassle for what it's worth, IMO.

I don't think there's as much to complain about Windows as many people say there is, but I will say that IE is crap.  IE was great when it was doing NEW things, but now that is no longer the case.  Hell, Firefox may crash more than Billy Joel, but at least it's doing new things (and yes, tabbed-browsing is not one of them).  That being said, I don't think a debate over who has the best browser is ever going to persuade anybody of anything.  Really, it all more or less boils down to a matter of personal preference.

Yeah, WGA hates Wine, if a Linux user really feels they need to run IE, he can just skin Fx to IE 6 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4327)/7 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4129)  and just download the User Agent Switcher (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59) Add-On and they're all set... kidding.  While I'm impressed some people have found a way to get around all the problems of running IE in Wine, I just don't see the point (other than web design).

Okay...  Either A) I have to  learn to use it because it is differnt then IE or B) it is not differnt from IE and thus I dont need to switch to it.

So.... mind explaining that?

What is crap?  If your going to state a point you need to say why.  Because it isnt new?  I guess I dont need a constant supply of shiny new things to be happy. I prefer a refined debugged more stable program then one thats twitchier then a singapore hooker on crack.  But she stands on her head while juggling!! Its new!  BUT.... I dont need it, so why do I change?  If it aint broke, dont fix it.  If I dont have a problem, why would I take the time to uninstall the browser I have, download a new one, learn its differences, deal with its crashes...?  I see no need to switch to fire fox and I really dont see the strong argument AGAINST  IE.

Well, that have been the case...

...if FF DID crash like billy joel on crack.

Which it does not.

In fact, it is way more bugless than IE since it's got WAY more people working on it constantly and providing bugs and fixes, fixing new bugs in at most a week - while IE STILL has bugs left unfixed that's been there and been known since the release of SP1.

...if FF DID crash like billy joel on crack.

Well, I never said anything about crack (^_^').  I was just trying to acknowledge that while Fx is a terrific browser, it's not w/out it's faults.  Of course, my assessment may not be entirely fair due to the fact that I put my browser through hell with all the tabs I usually have open at once (currently 10, but can usually go up to 30).  Like it or not, Opera (which is no longer shareware/adware) does a much better job of managing tabs (uses a lot let less memory, I've tested this).  Regardless, I still prefer the advantages of a customizable browser like Fx.

As far as my statement regarding IE doing new things, I was referring to the fact that it hasn't introduced any original ideas in a looong time.

QuoteIn fact, it is way more bugless than IE since it's got WAY more people working on it constantly and providing bugs and fixes, fixing new bugs in at most a week - while IE STILL has bugs left unfixed that's been there and been known since the release of SP1.

Indeed, and if you're using XP or below, you also have to contend with it's integration within the Windows OS, which means your entire OS can be compromised by finding an exploit in IE (note: this problem was solved with Vista, where IE is sandboxed).  Installation of IE7 versus Fx is also lame, downloading and installing Fx can take up a maximum of 30 minutes on dial-up whereas the same process with IE7 can take well over an hour (the download is larger, the install requires a reboot where M$ "verifies" your OS).  The installation of IE7 also requests you turn off anti-virus protection, so it can run the default virus scanner during the reboot (which is great isn't it?).  These, among others, are only the problems with version 7, don't even get me started on IE6.
Title: lolifox
Post by: CaptBrenden on April 17, 2007, 11:57:29 PM
again... everyone says its buggy.. but i dont have a problem with it. Im not sure wha you people do to IE to crash it, but it dosent crash on me.  So basicly, I have no reason to change, because no one has given me a reason of why FF is better.
Title: lolifox
Post by: Tsubashi on April 18, 2007, 12:03:01 AM
You know, you are right. For an average user, who has no idea what they are doing, IE is fine (If they're running windows). It comes built into the OS, and is about as stable as the rest of the system. Plus they probably wouldn't know enough to actually take advantage of the security benefit Firefox offers, nor it's utter expandability.

For everyone else, Firefox is a good alternative. It also has arguably better benchmarks than IE, and (Depending on the system) some other browsers too.

Still, there is nothing we can say or do to convince you:

Title: lolifox
Post by: CaptBrenden on June 23, 2007, 02:20:00 PM
I never had much inclination to use it in the first place. Like I said, I rarely ever have IE crash on me, and thats normaly when Ive bogged it down with far more then I should.  Its a if its not broke dont fix it. But since it was on the computer and I didnt have to take the time to download it I decided to try it, and it failed all expectations so far.  The cause of this being old program or HD degridation (which I dont think it is)  aside, its not worth the effort to trouble shoot if there is no gain from it

Well, in any case senpai and the vampire are right - if you want firefox, then grab a new, stable one as fast as possible. From all i know FF has been extremely stable - heck, I've even tried most of the 5 Gran Paradiso alphas that have come out until now and even they are more stable than what of IE i've used!
