It ain't just FF users, I have come across many other logos that "eat|beat|smash|attack|bash|push|flame|taunt|kill|harm", such as this for example . . .
Also, I have never seen more extreme fanboys then the ones that use FF. case and point, the GIF at the top of the page and chrisj's signature.
In my speed comparison, FF4 and FF5 (basically same, just a security update I think) is quicker than IE9 and on par with Chrome . . .
I use Opera on my mobile and that is very quick . . .
The only add-on I ever use is a video downloader/convertor, I don't like add-ons because as you said, they are usually pointless and will probably start slowing down your browser . . .
I ain't extreme, if people prefer other browsers then I ain't gonna kick them for it, as I said earlier, it's down to personal preference . . .
As for my sig, I'm entitled to use it if I want and I use it because, yes, I do like FF believe it or not and I liked it because it was long and thin which is a nice separation mark for a sig . . .
Just as anyone else is entitled to use a sig of their favourite browser, software, OS, game, console etc etc . . .
Also, the gif at the top is a generic one and I've seen it used with PS3 vs Xbox . . .
But I do agree with you that there are 'fanboys' who are really extreme, but that's the same with a lot of things, such as 'PS3 vs 360', 'Windows vs Mac' etc etc . . .
I used to use Chrome, but don't like using it anymore, I don't know why, probably just got out of it when them old websites wouldn't work on it . . .
My order is: FF5, IE9 and then Chrome . . .
PS, what is Opera like on your desktop/laptop . . . ??
As I said, I have only used it with my mobile and it does seem good but never really got round to trying it on my computer . . .
If it's worth a download I will, but I don't want to end up with four browsers then if it isn't really up to much . . .
I end up just filling my computer with too many programs and then spend ages uninstalling all the things I don't use so I don't turn my computer into a snail :roll: . . .
