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.

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

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
