Both the two browsers are good, but when it comes on security matter, IE failed to do its job pretty well. Mozilla has an advanced security feature which makes it safer to use. Otherwise, I recommend mozilla firefox as the safer browser to use especially when you are regularly surfing the net. Have a nice day and God speed!

Thanks for the reply and the good thing with firefox is that you don't have to restart your pc when a new updates is available and it retains your browsing history after the updates as compare to IE where you have to restart your computer before the update will work. Have a nice day and God bless!

I tried firefox before and I didn't like it. But I am still using internet explorer 6. I had heard about many problems with IE 7 so I didn't bother to upgrade. I am happy with it and thats all that matters to me.

Hi brenda. I think you should need to upgrade your IE 6 if you are using IE because IE 6 as some IT expert say it is too vulnerable for attacks by hijackers, malwares and hackers alike at least the upgraded version IE7 microsoft has enhace its defenses.

i like firefox better than IE just for the security. IE has to many problems and you are downloading patches all the time. havent had that problem with firefox. only thing that i have problems with firefox is when my aircard is running slow firefox will time out before loading page.

Yes you are right drivenjd IE has too many patches to download and when you update IE you must restart your PC while firefox after you update it you don't need to restart your PC only the firefox browser will restart. Have a nice surfing with Firefox.

firefox for sure. The is that it is much more secure than internet explorer. But I assume that every day more and more people will start using firefox, so hackers will try to find its flawss. Therefore, it wont be so secure as it is today

But some secured sites won't work in firefox and try to recommend IE. In my opinion too firefox is better but as I heard Microsoft is enabling IE 7 to be more secured than the previous IE browsers.

Firefox definitely. IE can never beat the superior performance now or never.

You need to ask! Firefox is hands down much better then IE. Since switching to Firefox I have made a vow never to go back to IE. I hear Firefox 3.0 beta is coming out July 07. Now if I can just get work to let us use Firefox instead of IE6 I would be happy.

firefox is much better that ie7, they have come with things that right know you can see on ie7, but a long time ago this was not like that, anyway firefox is better, cause there are a lot of plugins that you can use according to your needs, and that improve your satisfaction when using the browser, but when we are talking about ie7, that is not like that, and it has so many securities (because they got a lot of vulnerabilities also), that is so hard to even try to navegate in some encrypted sites or even install some plugins to impprove the functions, well, that's what i think, i've been testing ie7 since it was in its beta version 2, and i use firefox on my mac, so i have plenty of experience with both browsers

I use Firefox for two reasons. One, its faster in my experience and two, its more secure and offers better add-ons. For example, Firefox has a built in pop up blocker but no single pop up blocker can block them all. However, i have the add-on called NoScript which blocks anything you dont want on a website or even blocks the website all together. Its brilliant and these such advantages were not available for me using IE.

Firefox is the one which I use, which is better I can't really say. IE6 was trashy and anything was better, but IE7 improved a lot. The problem though is will IE7 stay this up to date? Currently it's still relatively new, but if it out-dates like IE6 did again due to a low amount of patches for it actually upgrading it, it'll quickly start sucking as well.
