    It sounds nice, but ill stick with my old one for now. I'll get it when it supports all the extensions like noscript and adblock. Also i bet it has no themes yet??

    I'm a web designer, so I can explain this pretty well.

    Firefox the the only browser that follows the majority of the W3C web standards, and it doesn't have all the security bugs that Internet Explorer has because it doesn't support ActiveX scripting which is the cause of alot of Microsofts problems. and another problem wiht IE, is that in the new version of Internet Explorer 7, Javascript, which is used by almost every website, including AO, will be disabled by default, and since a majority of its users aren't smart enough to turn it back on, this will cause alot of problems to people in my industry, because we'd have to design around that.

    The benifits of Firefox are as follows:
    1. Its faster
    2. Tabbed browsing (Once you use it, you'll never want to go back)
    3. Its more Secure
    4. its more customizable (there are thousands of extentions and themes that you can get for Firefox)

    My suggestion to you is to try firefox out, if you like it, continue to use it, and only use IE to get onto windows updates (or just leave your Automatic updates turned on).

    Besides being smaller, faster, quicker and conforms to the published Internet standards for Web data, the Mozilla Firefox browser is immune to most of the published malicious web exploits that Internet Explorer is vulnerable too, and is therefore more secure...
