Firefox wins hands down.
Try a poll, see what results you get from other users.

People may say it's just preference, but Firefox has barely ever crashed on me, where as it was very common for IE to bugger up

And firefox is like completely customisable

I think Firefox is faster.... not loading webpages, but the actual browser. It could be just me. It also looks better with all the skins you can get for it.

Cool poll; 100% to firefox so far with 9 voters.

So basically it's like choosing between a sexy girl holding a cold beer in each hand, or a rabid badger gnawing at your leg?

I'll take the girl thank you very much! Firefox ftw.

What kind of question is that? That's like choosing between a sexy badger holding a cold beer in each hand and a rabid girl gnawing at your leg.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Although I do like the story behind IE.

Bill Gates told the guy who invented it that he'd give him a share of the profits for each copy of the software sold, rather than pay for the program up front. So he gave it away free with Windows. Allegedly.

For me Firefox takes forever to start up compared to IE but I use it anyway. I'm a big fan of the spell check.

firefox FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Firefox, appart from the english dictionary (which sucks sooo bad, it wont even help fix things) it is great.

the best combo is Firefox+Fasterfox+AdBlock Plus+ Noscript (and throw in mcafee site advisor if it is there)

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Firefox is far greater than IE. I've been using Firefox for a few months now. It has failed up here and there but it's ALOT safer.

And look at the file size differences!
#36
Firefox, without a doubt. The big difference between the two is ActiveX. ActiveX, which is lodged deep inside every orifice of IE, is what allows most spyware onto your computer. Firefox does not use ActiveX, and thus very little spyware gets through. That's why I like Firefox.

Firefox for me too.

Even when it does crash, you can always restore the pages you were viewing. Explorer was just too unstable for me when I used it.

This pretty much sums up my experiences with IE.
