Hi guys,
Can anyone tell me what is the main deference between IE and Mozilla Firefox ? I have been using IE (version 6.0) for one year but from now on I have decided to use Firefox. I just want to know as to what Mozilla can do which Internet Explorer can not.
Thanks!

Upgrade to Internet Explorer 7. IE6 is old and lame.

Firefox has multiple tabs, spell checking, can be customized with plugins and comes built in with 10 or so search engines. Furthermore you will not get spyware adding toolbars and the such to it when your back is turned. Firefox also seems faster that IE7. I prefer Firefox over anything Microsoft can offer.

The best browser is very much down to personal preference.

I prefer safari to firefox. It also has a spell checker and tabbed browsing, built in search. IMO it has better bookmarking options and usability. Furthermore I can customize the size of form fields so I always have space to type in.

IE, Mozila both are good. It depends to the user which one the user like to use and find it better for them......I use IE7 but also try mozila sometimes.

Personally, I used Firefox in the past and thought it was the best browser for so long. That was until I downloaded Opera. I haven't looked back since, its the fastest and best for downloading and browsing.

mozilla is good if you are doing alot of repetitious work. I like the fact that it holds things you type into forms better than IE.. Def a positive when it comes to marketing your site; I've used mozilla for all of my marketing...

Hi Everybody!
Nobody speaks about Opera? Even if I have all three programs installed on my pc often I use Opera browser. Little less Firefox. Then IE.
I think every browser has sometimes security holes, if this isn't truth, why softhouses issue updates?... ;)
IE 7 has antialias?.. I think this is exact name... for text viewing, text is smoother than on other browser. But interface is not friendly, too much time to find for example Options or something else.
Firefox has many-many plugins, themes and other.
Opera maybe a little faster, has widgets from games to developer tools. There is inside even Torrent client, simple, but it works. You can choose up to nine sites which preview You'll find when you launching the program. Not bad.
I don't want speak about Safari and other mac's inventions cause I don't like mac, ipod, filemaker, timbuktu and all the mac company.
My Best regards.
Yuri.

Mozilla is best for php developers just because they don't need to make changes in their coding, it always shows the perfect resolution.

As i am talking about resolution of website then IE6, IE7, and Safari are also needed just to test the website. These 3 browsers need some efforts to be as same as like Firefox.

Mozilla is best.

It's fair to say that most people who visit a development blog are more tech/web savvy than the average user, which may be skewing your results to the Firefox/Opera/browser that doesn't come with the OS.
