yh i think that the browser features are excellent because you can pause downloads and also use tabs, But Internet Explorer is more established and global...also they are about to launch IE7 which has tabbed browsing and you can also pause downloading.

Tabbed browsing outside of Beta. Cleaner interface. Less risk of spyware. More extensions available freely.

Ooooh, I so miss Firefox. We had it, but then we had to reboot the computer. I keep meaning to put it on again and running out of time.

Or, get the official version without a pointless toolbar that doesn't do anything at www.getfirefox.com

I'm on firefox for the tabbed browsing mainly, but the less risk of spyware is cool. We have explorer on the comp, but it only comes out if firefox runs into something that it doesn't like.

I use Firefox because IE got corrupted by a virus but it also kept letting in spyware. Now that I use Firefox, I'm no longer plagued by spyware and pop-up ads. In other respects I find them both the same to use. I also believe strongly in supporting Open Source software over Microsoft.

Firefox all the way.

Completely agree - Firefox is just so much easier to handle!
