Firefox is hopeless with very slow broadband.....I installed it, but pages take forever to download. So I was forced to switch back to IE.    :(

Maximum broadband speed available to me is 512kbps, Charlotte.

It's all that is available in this area......

I`ve used Firefox on 512k adsl & it worked fine.

I believe IE starts faster but its something to do how its installed within Windows, but browsing should be pretty much the same.

Hi Charlotte

Heres 2 speedtesters that a lot of people use.

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html

http://www.speedtest.net/index.php?nojs=1

Many people can sometimes improve their ASDL speeds with a bit of effort

Give the 2 tests a try.

Steve

Charlotte.....it's on my plan on the internet site of my provider.

That's also where I can check what speeds will work in my district.

Stevie, browsing with Firefox takes every page  ages for me . Maybe it's how it's set up, but I have no idea about that....I'm very much a non- techie too.....

You could try Opera or Google Chrome, Opera is well thought of & meant to be fast, Chrome is the new Kid on the block & some say its good (haven`t tried it myself).
