Why do we not like AOL?

Simple, really, AOL is like a virus, you have no control, AOL decides what updates you need, and if you don't install them, you can't surf.

They treat you like a child, they know best, you don't.

AOL takes over your whole operating system. No matter how good you are, only way to really get rid of of AOL is format: C

AOL installs stuff in your main operating system. User profile; registry; you name it, there will be an AOL file lurking there.

And this coming from somebody who used AOL dial-up for five years.

Only reason was at the time they were the only ISP who allowed long downloads. Every other UK ISP cut you off after two hours or so.

If you can put up with being controlled, then AOL is the one for you.

If you want independence - wipe that hard drive and find an alternative ISP.

i've took part in looks of vote like this 1 on other forum and so on.

i've always voted IE untill now - i've voted firefox.

i was gettin very very slow load up time with IE and was told to try firefox but din't want the hastle of changin my ways - but i'm completly happy i changed and it was very easy to make the move to firefox.

you control it almost the same was and has a few thing IE dosen't have and dont think ill ever use IE again.

I have to agree. people who bother downloading Firefox also are more like to bother to vote.

I use Firefox, mainly because it gives me the better feeling. But If the IE7 IS better, why not use it? We blame MS for stopping the competition. But you have to agree that MS played quite fair this time, huh? So, it's all about getting the better product on the market. If MS is able to do that, they have been many times, then use their products, but give other peeps a try too!

I use IE6, but I'm going to be trying out Firefox as well soon as I've heard good reviews.
