Well, not for nothing but small business owners in America alone would save $198 million a year if everyone just used IE. Source: NIPOMA Institute

seriously though... if FF dropped off the face of the earth (al la Netscape) the only people who'd care would be a handful of brooding middle-aged programmers, mac posers who like the mac logo more than the OS or safari and, i guess, a couple people in this thread. haha.

Use FF if you don't mind upgrading it every day or two, and don't care if the websites you're looking at don't display/work how they were designed to, and of course if you hate small business owners. hah. Use IE otherwise.

Shatterproof is so dead on... FF claims to browse faster than IE, but I swear it's just because it doesn't care where it puts things and completely ignores some parts of what the interwebbernet is telling it.


It's not terrible, but I definitely don't have anything against IE.

Try Firefox and you will see. Don't listen to the haters. It IS faster and everything displays fine for me. Plus you can get kickass add ons like adblock which I love. Never look at ads again!

Man such hate lol. I love my Firefox. So in order to love small businesses you have to use the software made my a megacorporation that bullies small businesses on a daily basis and runs them out of business...interesting concept.

Dude, the NIPOMA Institute said it, not me!

Really though, you think pages display properly in Firefox but it's not really the case. FF makes less available to developers by way of it's incompatibility with certain code and functions. There are a number of simple HTML tags and values that no longer work in the latest FireFox version, and a number of other variations in the way it reads code -- some of which can be fixed by having two versions of a page (one for FF and one for IE) but many of which simply limit the functionality and dynamics of the page in Firefox.

Really though, i don't like FF because it costs so many people so much unnecessary work and money to not have a universal standard on the interwebs. That and i hate that it makes me update so often...

but then... i'm usually on a mission to find porn and can't spare the time.

Everyone should use IE. People who don't should be kicked off the internet for being dumb
Firefox has worked great for me for years now. I switched back when IE didn't have tabs (does it now? I assume it must) and haven't used IE since except when a) installing a new OS and having to get to the firefox website, and b) random occasions in the past where a banking website, etc would only allow IE, which doesn't really happen anymore.

Also, I am an IT contractor... so once in a while I have to use IE when a client doesn't have FF installed.

I agree with this but I tend to use chrome these days but absolutely hate IE.

The only times I use IE is when I use something online that is only compatible with IE.

I love Chrome and I've been using it for the last few months and don't have any complaints yet.

fail post. first paragraph is irrelevant. imagine how much we'd save if there was only one model of car, too? gas stations wouldn't have to stock diesel, we'd only need one set of parts. you're missing the entire point of market competition.

the second paragraph is complete bullcrap :P not even worth refuting, it's so wrong.

Oh and LOL at criticizing frequent upgrades, as if that's a bad thing. you realize that hackers and exploiters are working ALL the time, right? going months without an update is NOT an advantage, it's a product of monolithic, slow corporate workings like MS. Not sure if you've noticed, but MS has been working to increase the frequency of updates, not the other way around. You might not remember the many, many long-standing publicly available exploits in IE, but they sure do.
