If you think IE sucks, use Firefox

I think is was Morten from Noget med ild, that during the Danish Mozilla Firefox party Saturday, started with some weird one liners like:
- If you think IE sucks, use Firefox

Some Danish ones:
- Syntes du IE sucks, brug Firefox
- Hvis din browser går i koks, så brug Firefox

So if you got a Firefox one liner, leave a comment. All languages are accepted.

portuguese:

Se achas que o IE no presta, usa o Firefox.

I'd even add:
If you've finally understood that IE sucks, use Firefox.

Se finalmente percebeste que o IE no presta, usa o Firefox.

Hungarian:

Nem csped az Explorert? Hasznlj Firefox-ot!

"e" fent nem kedvenced? Menj el e helyre: http://firefox.hu
(it's a fun with Hungarian langugage, just using words "e" in them. Like: "Te tetted e tettetett tettet? Tettetett tettnek tettese te!" - anyway, the oneliner means: "e" up there is not your favourite? Go this place: http://firefox.hu)

English:

Have viruses and worms? Firefox means hygiene!

In UK english, "If you think IE sucks, use Firefox" can be miscontrued to imply that Firefox sucks even more than IE...

Presumably that's just a UK thing though :)

Rob, unfortunately, it means that in US English too... I'm confused how anyone thought it would be a positive comment.

I think it can only be misunderstood when it is properly pronounced. Voice is everything here!

The written sentence alone might be interpreted this or that way. Actualy, the pure meaning without any interpretation, IMHO, is a positive statement for firefox saying that you should use something else (Firefox) when you think that your standard browser (IE) is bad.

German:
Wenn Du glaubst, IE ist Mist, benutze Firefox

More precise, positive:
Wenn Du glaubst, IE ist Mist, benutze stattdessen Firefox
("stattdessen" -> instead)
->If you think IE sucks, use Firefox instead

More precise, negative:
Wenn Du glaubst, IE ist Mist, solltest Du erstmal Firefox benutzt haben
->If you think IE sucks, (geez) you should have seen Firefox

Might be nitpicking ;)

If you thought IE errors were bad, wait until you see the hilarity when Firefox thinks every URL you attempt to go to from behind a proxy server originates at www.google.com, and if you don't think that sentence is run-on enough, wait until you check out the Firefox Bugzilla forum, where the "Firefox elite" will deny that their miracle browser has the slightest problem.
