I personally use Firefox it is my favorite browser it`s fast very reliable and i think it is more user friendly then any other browser. I also like the fact that Firefox downloads alot faster then Internet explorer. I downloaded a 20 MB file it was downloading at 240kb on Firefox and on Internet explorer was only downloading at 130kb Internet explorer didn't even hit 200KB once. Whats your take is Firefox Better then Internet Explorer or worse? And whats your personal favorite browser?

I like Firefox too, and also the Adblock and NoScript add ons for it. But I do find that Firefox crashes a lot.

Can't imagine they are so creative and innovative. The more I used it the more I like it. They become market leader, that's good isn't it. IE too sensitive and lack of function that Firefox does. How long you'll been using?

Hi writefactor, as a programmer I'd prefer to Firefox. In the first Firefox has a more speedy access than IE; secondary Firefox is more stable and reliable than IE for IE mostly crash; thirdly there are more warms and virus which can break our operation system while browsing by IE.

i agree also that Firefox is way faster then IE.And that IE is flawed in the way they handle browsing. and they seem to flash there name Microsoft instead of making it better for the web user. Thank you for your response =]

Yes, I believe Microsoft would steadily maintain IE for IE has a large market coverage, and as you know, more and more web application were made base on IE.

Firefox is the best browser I have ever used. Bar none, no question about it as far as I am concerned. It is quicker. It does not eat up as much memory. It saddens me to see the dip of quality Internet Explorer has. It used to be the best but for whatever reason it has become such a slow resource hog that it just is a bother to run it. Firefox is the better browser and my absolute favorite.

I like FF better just because I feel that it is more secure than IE. Plus I like the fact that they block certain files from Microsoft that I'd rather not have on my PC.

I've always used firefox, is much better than i.e., in everything! Just a little example, when i.e. started to use the option to open in a new tab, firefox had that option years before.

It's safer using firefox than internet explorer.Intenet explorer comes with MS software and this software is neither free nor cheap.Firefox is a product of a large group of people working together to create mighty and easy to use browser.

I also like to use Firefox and it is my favorite browser. I especially like it since it can offer many plug-in. Even if you turn off the computer when you download something by Firefox, and next time it will still keep on downloading and this is nice. I love China

Firefox is what I use most of the time. It's reliable, simple to use and comes with add-ons. IE is copying many of the features from FF now-a-days, like the multiple tab thing -- that's what I like most about FF, because you can keep so many tabs open at the same time without running into memory problems. Well, still once in a while I hit a page whose contents are not compatible with FF, and then I have to switch over to IE and open the link on it. Most of the time it works. I'm sure FF will get even better with time!

Firefox is definitely better than Internet Explorer. I'm not sure if it's just me, but whenever I want to open a new tab in IE, it seriously takes forever. But Firefox loads the tabs like almost instantly. The problem with Firefox is that it crashes too often. My personal favorite browser is Firefox. If any person would ask for browser recommendations, I would just say Firefox. Nothing else.

In my personal opinion Firefox is the best browser.It loads very fast and the download rates are also high in Firefox.Java Scripts also work much faster in Firefox.Compared to the speed of Firefox I would say that Internet Explorer is very slow when it comes to the matter of large amounts of data.I think Opera is much better than Internet Explorer.The browsers based on the performance from best to worst would be Firefox,Opera and Internet Browsers.

I like Firefox because it is a faster browser and it is very very customizable. I like all the tools that you can get with firefox. You can change the functioning and the appearance so it is exactly how I want it.
