Cheevos - a popular firefox add that makes learning about different parts of the browser fun, plus bragging rights with your friends about your pro web surfing habit

I’m writing this post from one of those 17 tabs in Firefox – the only browser which is opened right now in my Windows 8 machine. So far so good, but I expect sudden crash of this awesome browser. Yes, confession that it is still awesome, and I love Firefox more than Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Part time mood changers are Opera, Maxthon and Safari browsers, each of which have their own flavor of surfing. Sadly, in this article I’m writing about why I’m quitting Firefox to be all time IE user, there is no alternative for me since I’m now a full time Windows 8 user with all my Workstations, and personal portable devices being Win 8 and Firefox not being in those favor at least for now.
