Firefox Vs I.E

  Ginge1980 20:45 27 Dec 2006

In your opinion which is the better - Firefox or Internet explorer?
I use IE 7 at the moment but was thinking of changing - anyone using Firefox, whats your opinion on it?

Use both or either, I do because it is horses for courses, I find FF has better add-ons but some sites only work with IE, I personally prefer FF

Use Opera, better than both.

Firefox for me, along with many others.

You also don't have the constant requirement for critical updates, security updates etc at least once a month...:-)

Try running them alongside each other and compare them in actual use.

Use Firetune Firefox to get FF working to its optimum:

In Firefox this page looks like click here but in Opera using the zoom feature click here as far as I know Firefox can't do this!

Firefox all the way.

Well it's Firefox 2 for me. Although I use IE when pages don't display well on Firefox. Which is pretty rare.

Have you actually read your link?

  Kate B 22:53 27 Dec 2006

Allyginger, have you discovered the IE tab extension for Firefox? You can flip a tab to IE - you don't have to fire up IE itself click here

Stuartli, whats wrong with it ,it's as up to date as you need it...
it includes IE7 and Firefox2.0
