Tabbed browsing...other than that not really sure. I never felt comfortable using IE when it is kind of integrated into the whole system...

tab browsing is great, but theres also the millions of plugins you can download. i have one that has a little music toolbar on the bottom. that way if im listening to something on winamp or wmp or something, i can press skip through songs, mute the volume, open albums right on my firefox browser. i also have a pretty useless plugin that turns highlighted text into 1337 speak. for instance, heres a yahoo news paragraph.

oh and firefox IS faster with the tweaks and also takes up less memory

Newest IE has tabbed browsing.

My biggest reason for using firefox is because of the extensions. And both are about the same speed wise.

I used to use firefox. But I caught myself clicking into IE most of the time so I got rid of it. Really didn't see many advantages..only because whenever I'm online it's on pbf lol.

Firefox is also less common then IE so there are less exploits for viruses and such. So it's safer by nature

Kind of like using a Mac online

The reason? Firefox does not use AcitveX. ActiveX is the reason IE is so weak against viruses. Firefox is faster, less of a memory hog and more secure.

Can anyone actually give me an article, pictures, or actual information proving firefox is faster?

IE has always been faster for me. In ff I average around 2-2.5 seconds loading pages (faster fox's loading timer).

Ie just browsing through the same sites as I would would ff has been faster for me. And yes I've done that editing crap for ff.

it depends
if you have a broadband connection, firefox tends to load pages faster

firefox is much more secure, has more integrated features(that actually work), is much much faster, and takes up less resources. I started using mozzila(before firefox or its predecessors were out) because of it was much more cosmetically appealing then ie. But its performance is far superior as well. Also, its a little subtle but it displays websites a lot better in terms of margines and stuff like that.

The only reason anyone should ever use IE agian is to go download firefox.

I used Mozilla 1.6, as well. That 11meg file took almost 3 hours to download on dial up, but after that our Spyware problems were solved.

IE 6 is better than Explorer used to be. I think since they realized other browsers were getting a lot BETTER, they could be a thorn in the side and so they improved (when they could have done so long, long ago). I've used the new IE at school, and it still isn't as good. I'm pretty sure it DOESN'T have tabbed browsing (if it does I can't figure out how to use it) and the default pop up blocker isn't as good. All in all, I like Firefox 100% more.

I have Netscape, I like better than any other browser. It's got tabbed browsing and looks cool too...
