I disagree.I find Firefox far more user friendly and easy.Then again,I haven't used IE in years.But,thats obviously because I've had no desire to.
Yes.

I've gotten a lot less spyware using firefox, and it's easier to use if you go back and forth between web sites, it also has a lot of add ons to do variouse.

Firefox > IE

Yep, that's all I got to say bout that...

I like having multiple windows for my websites... much easier to handle.

Since service pack 2 I think, I've never gotten spyware. It's been at least a couple years I think. Before it would be pretty bad though, like on win 98

No, IE6 causes memory leaks and is to un-sleek.
#17
I recently made a switch to Firefox from Internet Explorer, because of all the good I've been hearing about it.

Pages seem to load a little faster with Internet Explorer though. I still need time to figure out which browser I prefer.
#18
^Look at the fasterfox extension on firefoxs website, it seems to have made mine go faster.
#19
Firefox has so many plugins and extentions you can install, you get almost no pop ups, and less spyware. Firefox is better.

No, people praise it so much because

- Microsoft have left countless severe security holes in IE
- when a flaw is detected, they don't fix it unless they feel it might be bad publicity if they don't, and they take their sweet time. If there's a leak discovered in Firefox, there's probably a patch within 24 hours.
- Microsoft have deliberately failed to meet Web standards as proposed by the W3C, and as a result, Internet Explorer has faulty support for technogies like Cascading Style Sheets and PNG images with alpha trasparency. Those technologies should have been 100% supported by now, but they aren't. Meaning that web developers have to use outdated technologes instead. So in the long run, they're slowing down the development of the internet.
- Microsoft put too much emphasis on ActiveX, which gives web developers way too much power for the average web application, resulting in even more security risks.
- Microsoft have been the market leader for years, with an inferior product. With IE being so deeply integrated into Windows, they made it almost impossible to compete. Everybody who appreciates a fair free market economy that's not being ruined by conglomeration, should support Firefox for the fact that against all odds, they have managed to get such a big market share. It's like David VS Goliath.
- They keep adding dumb **** to IE, like last March or April, they decided that all Flash movies on a page have to be "activated" before they work, meaning you have to click the first. That totally ruins every site that uses a lot of flash. There's a workaround, but it's stupid and unpractical, and relies on javascript. It's totally unnecessary and it's extra work for developers, and the home user only gets frustrated by vague messages about activating control elements.

Just a couple of reasons...

Firefox obviously.
That's like asking: Which is better? a Gibson LP Custom or a kick in the groin?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#22
^ Kick in the groin FTW!

I use both of them actually. Im on firefox right now though.

I use firefox... IE tended to be too slow (with starting up, etc... not loading pages), and too... clumsy i guess :S i prefer firefox.

The only thing about IE is that it needs to be installed to ensure some programs and junk actually run (i.e. messenger doesn't run well without IE... i've been told anyway)

It needs to be installed, but it already is installed on every Windows machine, and it doesn't hurt. But you need it to use certain sites, and that can be annoying if you never use it.

There's a solution though: an extention for Firefox called "IEtab", which lets you run the IE engine in firefox at the push of a button. You can configure it so that certain pages/domains will always open in IE mode, and it works very well. For example: if i go to the Windows Update site with Firefox, an IE icon appears and it runs the site like it should, without having to open the IE browser.

Actually that was due to a law suit that Microsoft lost (infringement of patent to do with the way a browser interacts with embeded objects), W3C were backing MS on this one as it spoils the way a lot of web sites work. But they lost and had to make the change which now means we have to click on the object to activate it. Not MS's fault.

Oh and Firefox has its flaws just as IE does (I use both - as a web developer I have to make sure my sites work on all browsers) its just that MS has such a hugh market share, its the main on that is attacked by virus writers/hackers etc... I'm sure if firefox had the market share that MS does, it would be attacked just as much. Not saying that IE is better than Firefox. I wish there was just one browser available, its a pain in the ass to code for all the ones out there!

I use Firefox or Konquoror. I used to use Opera, but it feels a bit basic after Firefox.

I think the best thing in Firefox is having multiple tabs for your homepage so everytime I open it it's got everything important there.
#28
Quote by Kiwi Ace
Firefox definately, the 'tab' feature is a lifesaver.


IE 7 also has that - just been trying the Beta 3 version - its far superior to IE6! Seems a bit faster too.

IE has a history of using code from Mozilla - I expect they stole the multiple tabs bit from Firefox.

Yeah - I'm sure that the developers at microsoft didn't have the knowledge to write a windows tab control themselves....

I've got a question. Is the 2.0 version of Firefox is a test version? Because it seems that all the extensions are only made for the 1.5 and lower versions...

What are you stupid? Firefox all the way! And with IE yoiu have to go into control panel and go clear history and remove files etc and it takes ages. Firefox, you just go control+shift+delete and it clears it all instantly! Very usefull along with tabbed viewing. Eheh heh heh.
