    Change to Firefox from IE?

    Do you think Windows Movie Maker is good enough for a beginner making trials vids, with some experience in editing, or should I go for something else?
    Would prefer free and dont mind P2P solutions, but I do have a small budget if needed.

    I appreciate your time. :)

    YES! IE is the shittest browser on the planet! (that i know of). Firefox is way better, absolutely pwns it. As for movie maker, can't help, but the canberra guys are always making videos (from what i have seen on the site), so ask Seb or someone. I have used something called Final Cut Pro at school, but thats more for hollywood blockbusters than trials videos. I had no idea how to use it though

    I have avant browser, because I like flashy features. I agree IE blows, but so many things in firefox piss me off. First if you don't patch it, you can't stream videos, you have to download. Then there also is no "save target as" so in situations where you need it, you have to copy and paste into IE. I prefer avant because it is more completely thought out, and you can browse using mouse clicks (stremlines browsing incredibly once you get used to it).

    I E does suck, but Firefox is missing some features. I can't even rmember which ones, but I remember being pissed a few times when Firefox just wouldn't do some simple task. I also had tons ofd issues with different websites not working with my version of firefox. I'm sure it'll be awesome when finished being debugged, but for now I'll just deal with IE's faults. It's just much more thorough. Never tried avant though, hmmmmmmmmmm,,,,,is it worth it?

    how exactly does IE suck? It has always worked for me - not real sure why I'd want to change.

    I can stream videos...and it always asks me where to save videos if I just click on them, so I don't even need to bother with the save target as. IE sucks, Firefox wins.

    I've never had a problem with IE.


    movie maker is fine for the beginning, premiere and final cut are the only way to go for long term solutions. premiere 6.5 4 ever.

    I use the following software

    Pinnacle studio 8 (favorite, easiest to use)
    Ulead Video studio (ok, cheaper than PS8)
    Adobe Premier 6.5 (most powerful...talkin' pro grade shit here. hardest to learn though, and the most expensive)

    I have also tried Windows movie maker, multiple "Dazzle" products, and a few others.
    If you are on a budget, go with pinnacle....it's sooo simple to learn to use, and cheap too.

    ps. don't use windows movie maker. It'll make you sad.



    ANDREW....about your avitar...do you do video production, or just bike stuff?

    I am also curious as why some people dont like IE. Granted I am not a computer guru but IE has never left me wanting more.

    There are tons of manuals floating around the internet about that program, I have taken 3 classes on it and I have only scratched the surface. once you understand how to use it, it goes as deep as you want it to. brilliant product!

    my reasons for firefox:

    tabbed browsing
    no popups
    no more problems with viruses, spyware, adware etc
    it seems to load the page faster
    IE crashed on me every now and then, and usually took windows with it

    Bill Gates recently said that IE only crashes when you download third party software (spyware, adware, etc).....if we knew the third party software was there, we wouldn't download it in the first place. One good reason to use Open Source Software like Firefox :)

    You can stream, just don't choose "save file" choose "open file". There is no "save target as" in firefox, the option is "save link as".

    Not sure if you know, but Avant isn't its own browser, it is IE modded. In fact check out task manager the next time you fire up avant, IE will run.
