So, what do you think is the best way to surf the internet? Recently I've heard lots of people saying that 'Firefox is way better the IE', but I think thats just the 'Bash everything Microsoft makes' trend. I tried Firefox and I dont really think it's better (or worser) the Internet Explorer.. What do you guys think?

I'm not against or for Microsoft, I find that ridiculous. People are bashing Microsoft because their softwares are not free, well they forgot that originally Internet Explorer was the first Free software and that Netscape wasn't free. Internet Explorer was far better than Netscape that's the real reason it was dominating for years. And that's the reason Netscape decided to create another browser from scratch that is Firefox. 2 years ago I didn't find Firefox worth enough it was slow and buggy. Today I admit it's much better and stable so I switched to it. As you see I'm objective.

I have not tried Firefox, but I have looked into it. It does not seem to have the protection and security that internet explorer offers, that is why i dont use it.

I think firefox is the best for browsing the internet. it has good features than the explorer, it utilises the bandwidth correctly. and very rarely it gives the errors. it is much better than the explorer, once u start using the firefox i am sure that you will not like to browse the net in the explorer. i feel comfortable. if we close it suddenly also it wil restore the session when we start it again. most of the net browsers prefer for the firefox only. even explorer 7 which is the latest version also is not good as firefox.

When I used IE6 it used to get frozen and there wasn't the possibility to open more pages (cards or whatever they are called in the english version) contemporary, so I passed to Firefox. In IE7 there are cards too but now I'm too used to firefox to change. All my friends at computer science faculty use it and say it's better, but I don't know why.

I use Mozilla Firefox most often now, because in the past few weeks Internet Explorer has often suddenly shut down for no apparent reason. That can be tremendously annoying if I am in the midst of something on a site that I had to sign in to.

My Firefox browser is significantly faster than any other browser that I use. I have heard a few others are good too. But the regular IE is much slower, that is on my computer anyway.

I think, firefox is the best. It detects if the site has virus, it won't open which is good when you are surfing the net. It's also nice because of the tab thing.. open in the next tab. IE also has this, but for some reason.. IE is slower that way, and firefox isn't.

to me I prefer firefox than IE :) ..i started using firefox because of the tabbed browsing, because I didn't want to have so many IE windows cluttered on my windows taskbar. Although now IE 7 does have tabbed browsing, I still stick to using firefox ^___^

I am not going to rip IE for the sake of Microsoft. I like their products and own an xbox 360. However, IE has crashed on me way too many times and firefox comes with a built-in spell check. Firefox also fixes any HTML code for you if you're working in HTML. I find both of these features useful because I make a tons of typos (not anymore with Firefox) and use HTML on some of my blogs.
