Hmmm - Mozilla or IE?

Trying our Mozilla on the downstairs PC. It does make Merry's blog fit work better (although it appears to be fine on IE upstairs, but not down - why would that be?), but makes the pics in my blog not quite fit. Anyway - I'll give it a go. What is the general feeling about the two these days?

Firefox ;)

WHY?

Fewer popups, tabbed browsing, neat plugins for rss support, plus it isn't made by microsoft.

Neat avatar Sarah!

Everything Jax said, plus with Firefox you can easily block every ad, every script, every item you don't want. Better privacy. More standards-compliant. It doesn't take three years for the Firefox developers to plug a security hole. And you can do things with Firefox extensions that IE only dreams about.

If you *must* use IE, google for and download Proxomitron - but really, it's easier to just use Firefox.

Opera is also now free, just to stir the mix a little ;-)

(Mind, if I *had* to use either IE for browsing or OE for email, I'd take IE. Glad I don't have to use either though :-))

I've decided to trial both - IE7 upstairs (having read some pretty good reviews) and Firefox downstairs (coming highly reccommended) and see which I like best :) I'll let you know what I think in a bit...
