I wanted to know which explorer is the better of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. I have used both of them and am not sure which is better. I want to know which is better to keep my internet usage bills less as I have a subscribed to a fixed download scheme. Also if there are other pros and cons regarding security or any other parameter, please do let me know.

From a online marketers perspective I would have to say that FireFox wins over Internet Explorer every time. Using FF I can download and add so many Add-ons that make my business life easier. I can see things at a glance that I just can't do in IE. I also like the appearance better and only keep IE around so that i can view the pages I create for myself and clients so that I don't get browser surprises. I never really had any security issues with either so I can't answer you on that one, but for a browser that seems to work trouble free I have to stick with FireFox.

great, currently I am on firefox only. Does volume of data download play any role here?

I think they are both good in their own way. I think alot of people like firefox because there are fewer popups but Internet Explorer seems to work better with certain functions. I usually use firefox but to take surveys I soemtimes need to switch to internet explorer. I can look up thing faster with firefox most of the time. I guess it is my favored browser.

I use Internet Explorer and I am very comfortable with it. But recently a friend of mine suggested me to use Mozilla firefox as IE is more prone to viruses. But actually I used to use Mozilla firefox about 6 months back and I had a hell lot of problems with viruses. I now prefer IE over Mozilla and I have no problems of viruses.

Mozilla firefox is much better than IE because its faster and you have some advantages.
