Firefox vs IE

Alright guys, for those of you in the know. Why should I use Firefox v.s. Internet Explorer? What makes Firefox better? I'm so used to IE that when I tried to use Firefox I couldn't make myself adapt. Hoping to hear some real good reasons to push me to stick with Firefox. Thanks guys.

Being in the computer business I can honestly say that firefox is much faster, more convenient, and has a lot of customizable options. It is also a much more secure browser right out of the box because it does not run ActiveX applets. It's true that ActiveX is comparatively easy for developers to code, but it lacks the security features of Java. We are paying for a mistake Microsoft made in the early 1990s. Instead of building ActiveX the way it should have been built, Microsoft is throttling the client software -- which is the security measure of last resort. The future is open-standard Java and JavaScript. IE is literally unsafe on the Internet without antimalware and antiphishing protection.

It's also true that this is not because of some better design in Firefox (the non-execution of ActiveX), it's also because most spyware, malware and phishing exploits are about one thing: Making money. And the focus is on the browser with the overwhelmingly superior market share (i.e. microsoft, internet explorer, yada yada yada). Mozilla's Firefox is the only browser development effort that is truly focused on the user, instead of on the needs of the company building the software. That very definitely shows in the finished product. Firefox 2, though not an ambitious upgrade, is a better browser than the 1.5 version that preceded it. In use, it provides the best overall user experience. When you come right down to it, that's the essential factor in your choice of a Web browser. Let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Glad I could help It is a much more enjoyable program to use and you will find fun ways to create a cool graphical user interface (GUI) that you can be proud of when you open it to browse the net. Anything else you need to know about computers just find me on here. Let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Ditto. Also, IE is what most people use, so virus makers are more apt to write code to attack that because it would have a bigger impact. Same reason some guys prefer macs or linux. No one writes viruses for them because it's effect would be minimal.
