Internet Explorer, Firefox or other?

I have always used IE but I've had a lot of friends say that they use Firefox. What is the difference? What do you use? Do you like it?

  • Firefox tends to load faster! firefox and google chrome both have ad ons (called extensions in google chrome) that allow ALL ADS to be blocked! This means they NEVER show up!!! That a nice feature, especially on sites like CM that at times can be ad heavy or have annoying ads that grow when you roll over them, especially in bad locations where you will roll over the ad, because you are wanting to click something on the menu bar above the ad.

  • Firefox - I switched over from IE about 2 years ago. It's 120% faster than IE. Though I've heard google chrome is good too - just haven't tried it yet.

  • OMG Firefox hands down over IE! I will NEVER use IE again, it's just too horrible IMO. It crashed way too often and was just, well, horrible lol. I love Firefox, though.
