Both suck. But Firefox is better. I can't believe Microsoft actually thinks IE is a competitive browser. w00t they put in RSS and tabbed browsing....pathetic!

I like FireFox. In general I prefer Safari. What I dislike is web pages that force me to use one or the other. One of my favorite pages did just that. They made their website work only in Firefox. I don't use that site anymore. They don't know why, I'm sure. I'm not going to tell them either.

Although some people don't like the look of firefox, I think it's advantages are obvious. Its faster, safer, easier and allows more room for individuality. Go Firefox!

Firefox runs on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. IE only runs on Windows. Enough said.

As horrible as IE is, Firefox looks horrible and has no decent skins. IE7 looks awesome but uses massive amounts of memory... And is Instructables being recoded right now? IE is suddenly not reading the pagese properly.

Firefox..faster, better protection, better tabbed browsing, tab bookmarks, addons, and IE has some bugs with coding. Plus IE sucks with png images.

FireBug is a pretty good reason for Firefox for anyone that has ever written a line of code meant for the web ;)

Heh, my parent's, despite my efforts, are still using AOL. My mom got a spoof eMail asking for eBay information. Just for fun, I followed the link (it was a very convincing eMail for someone that's not paying attention). FF caught the url spoofing and halted everything. It gave me the option "Get me Out of Here!" or 'This is not blah blah blah.' Just another reason why my parents should get off aol :) Use IE, just not aol.

My only complaint about FF is that it's apparent that it is a memory hog.

I also use konqueror from time to time (when the linux box is in gui mode) :P I too am biased, I even use OpenOffice as opposed to Microsoft Office :)
