    Not sure about the latest Explorer but the previous versions had a number of security issues & bugs.

    I switched to Mozilla about 9 months ago after getting sick of webpages not opening properly. I'll never go back to Exporer.

    It seems as if Microsoft products are more subject to attack, so I switched to Mozilla some time ago for security reasons.

  5. Firefox is more secure because it doesn't use ActiveX, which is MS software that lets programs run and install through IE. Some sites won't work without AxtiveX, but they are the exception to the rule as most sites work just fine with Firefox.

    IE7 is more secure than IE6, but I still suggest Firefox.

    IE tab is a nice plug in that allows you to open tabs in IE from within Firefox. I prefer Firefox for general browsing, but I still need IE in order to properly display my Outlook web access and my MS Server remote access functions.

    firefox has extensions you can install that let you do stuff like - download all the links on a page at once, customize tab behavior/preferences, customize the interface like which buttons you want, added features like undo closed tab or duplicate tab which are not standard in firefox. You can also install all kinds of toolbars for google, web developement, xml viewers, any many more. i like firefox alot.
