Why switch from Internet Explorer to Firefox for Mac?
If you came here from my other website, Internet Explorer for Mac, then you already know what a pain it is to try to get Microsoft’s web browser working on an Apple computer. There are some people who have been running IE on Macs for years, though, and making the switch to a new browser isn’t always easy. Others may be used to using Internet Explorer from years of PC use, and be pining for the familiar web browser. Firefox is a great option for people who don’t specifically require Internet Explorer for things like work applications: it’s fast, reliable, and supported on all operating systems.
Microsoft no longer supports Internet Explorer for Mac, which means the existing users are stuck on version 5.5. Major websites have stopped designing for even IE 6 users already, which means old IE for Mac is displaying many of your favorite sites wrong. The other methods of getting a version of Internet Explorer working on a Mac are tricky to pull off and waste system resources. Switching to a browser that continues to support the Mac OS is, quite simply, the right move. Why Firefox, then? It’s fast, secure, expandable, and non-profit!
Mozilla Firefox is an innovator in the field. It was the first browser to introduce tabbed browsing, add-ons, and more. At a time when Internet Explorer was willing to ignore web standards Firefox pushed forward the latest versions of CSS and html, forcing all other browsers to catch up with what web developers wanted to show their visitors. Firefox also re-introduced the web browser as a separate program from the operating system, significantly improving security for all web users. Now, many browsers have learned from the example Firefox and the Mozilla foundation, but the original is still pushing the envelope.
Firefox is a great option for your Mac browser, because it works on all operating systems. Windows, Linux, Mac, whatever you’re running, you’ll never need to switch browsers again. It’s one of the most popular web browsers in use today, surpassing Mac-native Safari and at a near tie with Google’s Chrome and Internet Explorer. Designers make sure to test their websites on these three important browsers, so you can be sure what you’re seeing is what is meant to be there.
