If you are stuck with Internet Explorer, and haven't switched to Firefox, do so now. I won't force you, but it's clearly a better browser (however, click the button anyway to learn more about it). Click the following button to get firefox and help High Impact Halo earn points!

I remember seeing an intro to a flash video once in which the IE symbol fell and smooshed the firefox symbol in a pile of blood. I swear if I ever get that guys email....

My school put firefox on so I'm extremly happy, I was hoping they had and when I first got there there was a poopy uninviting IE shortcut on the desktop. So i clicked it after I made sure noone was looking and to my glorious suprise it was firefox. I asked and they had only left it because they didn't want to have to "teach" everyone in the school firefox. gotta love lazy ass computer teachers who shut down the whole network so they can try to get World Series tickets....

High Impact Halo earns points because were getting others to download Mozila Firefox. I think thats how it goes anyway...

High Impact Halo is getting these points for advertising, and getting others to use Mozila Fire Fox, I'm geussing they advertise us or something for this, but I'm still not sure.

Can someone please tell us what the site is getting with these points?

Hehe, I was about to remark on that.
That ratio seems good enough but add a few zeros on either side.
I do experience a few problems with firefox' download manager from time to time.

Sputnik, what kind of Computer are you using ATM?
Wait...a Windows?

erm erm

Here is a fun fact:

In firefox if you are trying to find something on the current page you are looking at then press Control + F and a little bar will appear at the bottom.

Fact 2:

In internet explorer 7, they try to make it like fire fox.
Have a looksie here(they STOLE THE TABS IDEA)

Think of Internet Explorer as... Wal-Mart of the Internet
and Firefox as... That place downtown where they make the really good bagels and coffee.

Also, IE's search bar is like....McDonalds.

and Firefoxes search bar as.... In'n'Out.

If you want, you can add this to the users that dont use an avatar. This might help you advertising and get alot of points/whatever.
