I use Netscape, which I like it alot. Its the same platform as Firefox, just not as eye appealing so to say

Firefox is awesome. Once you get used to tabbed browsing, you will never go back. The only problem is that some websites aren't set-up for foirefox, so you still need Exploder as a back-up

Agreed, some websites are not maximized for FireFox, but I love it. It'* supposed to be safer than IE too. And tabbed browsing is AWESOME!!! I like the different skins/themes you can use to customize the look too.

I've used it, and still have it, but I mostly use IE. I don't ever have problems with it.

I can't seem to get my website to look the way it should in Firefox. I haven't figured out why. It'* prolly cause Firefox requires valided code, and IE let'* me use all the informal coding.

I scan my machine for spyware every week with AdAware, and I used to find 3 or 4 malicious objects every time. Since I switched to Firefox I pick up nothing every time I scan. It'* a worthwhile switch in my opinion. Plus it'* free, you can't beat that.
