Well basically Foxie is a program which is an another interface for IE....it never converts IE in Firefox....it just gives you few of the functionalities of Firefox.....as the guy mentioned above...now the best part of firefox is its RENDERING engine...i.e. the speed through which it shows the webpages...which is GECKO and I am sure that Foxie can't use that.Also if we look at the better alternatives of IE and someone dont want to use firefox then....what we can do is that we can use MAXTHON from http://www.maxthon.com/ and which is by far the best software which I can personally think of...as the best alternative.

Foxy is NOT firefox. not even near firefox. It is just an interface to the ie.


I found Maxthon much better then other ie based explorers.

Maxthon Internet Browser software is a powerful tabbed browser with a highly customizable interface. It is based on the Internet Explorer browser engine (your most likely current web browser) which means that what works in the IE browser will work the same in Maxthon tabbed browser but with many additional efficient features like...

i think IE is the best out of all of them, better looking, easier to use, plus why go through all that trouble to download a new one, when ie comes wready. i really think they are all the same, theres not much difference between them.. they still almost look all a like, i think ie is better because they've been around much longer so.

Personally I dont see the point I mean all your doing there is making Internet Explorer look a little bit better and give it tabs, which (I think) you can do with an MSN toolbar or something like that. The core problem is still there and that is simply that IE has the weakest implementation of the W3C web standards, it has a string of serious security flaws, which are hightened in severity when you consider that most people use it, I mean one single exploitaton of these security holes could theoretically cripple 80% of all windows based PC's thats another of IE's big problems, its nigh on impossible to remove and wound so tightly with the Windows OS its prectically begging hack me, hack me. Seriously though if your going to get a 'skin' for IE to make it look like Firefox why not at least try Firefox out first. I mean what is their to lose. You never know you might even like it. (Sorry thats abit ranty, its been a long day and I'm tired)

well why people go with firefox is that due to the fact that hackers have a harder time getting into a computer then with IE but im only guessing on that.

Foxie still uses the MSHTML engine which has many flaws and is the reason that IE is insecure. Firefox uses mozilla's Gecko engine which is more secure than MSHTML. Don't use foxie unless you have the real need to use MSHTML

I downloaded both of them focIE and maxthon....and they appear the be the same....But Maxthon has much more crap covering the screen, and is larger, and my proxie program will not work with it. Conclusion there is no substitue for firefox
