    IE vs FIREFOX

    I have been using both Firefox and IE, i have had people saying that Internet Explorer is better than Firefox. but also have heard that firefox is better than IE, in my time using them i have come to like both of them for many different reasons. what is your view on this?

    I use FireFox because I like it more.

    I use IE only if I need to because a site requires it or to check my work.

    Really? That has proven to be the opposite case in my experiences.

    I can't actually think of a single reason to like Internet Explorer compared to Firefox. That's my view; and I don't even use either of them.

    the gaping security holes microsoft seems to leave out when they come up with new releases that fix other security holes, but leave bigger ones out.

    coke with meals, pepsi standalone.

    firefox - it's great now - but as user numbers grow large, so does the target.
    these are the salad days...in the near near future, FF will be 'the man' just like IE.

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    I really like Safari, but the WevDev and Tidy extensions keep bringing me back to Firefox. There's something about instantly seeing whether or not a page validates...

    I like to have Firefox with meals, IE standalone.

    (Firefox loads images and pages slower for me, compared to IE)

    That's the sign of somebody who really knows what they're talking about; somebody who eats their software.
