Comments on this pledge

  • Perhaps you could include the Mozilla suite as well as Firefox in your pledge. Also perhaps include Thunderbird as an alternative to Outlook/Outlook Express.

  • Made the switch permanently ages ago now, as IE kept letting through the most appauling adware and viruses.

    Couldn't be happier with Firefox!
  • I already use it! It's far superior to IE6

  • Have used Firefox and Thunderbird since Feb 2005. Am very happy. Much better than IE and Outlook. Are there any other switches I can make?
  • What about Opera? I have been boycotting IE for years now and Opera is my browser of choice. Can I join this pledge and fulfill its spirit (boycotting IE) by using Opera?

  • I pledge to do <something> that I already know is in my own best interest and won't cost me anything BUT only if <x> people also agree.. huh?

  • I think the pledge should be extended to 10,000 and everyone who has a website should display the Firefox button!

  • I've never looked back after the switch. I dread IE now. Ctrl+T rules!

  • I made the switch at work and home and never looked back!! Using it now, converting others every chance i get. The college where i work recently switched to Thunderbird as an e-mai lclient .. i'm hoping they'll switch over to Firefox as the default browser soon.
