i hear talk that firefox is better than ie. i using firefox and like some of the features, like the download bar and the weather. what else apart from these features actually makes it better?

For me;

Its quicker
Ease of use from the Tools menu,as i run Firefox with Javascript disabled to block some of those annoying ads.
Using a simple addon like IETab helps me display those pages that Firefox will not while Javascript is disabled,not to mention its more secure.

It doesn't hang or crash the computer!

It might be me, but, I have noticed that Firefox takes longer to start-up than IE.
This is on a variety of computers. Are there some settings that need changing?

firefox preloader can load up elements of firefox into memory that pretty much start it instantly.
