      Well it depends on your opinion,

      I use IE because i am pretty adjusted to it.
      I don't have to touch the mouse for it, i simply do all my things via shortcuts.

      Other people say Mozilla.

      So ...

        Stick with IE because when Firefox has gone you will be back to IE anyway.

            Try Opera 8.5 with Voice, a very fast tabbed Browser. It is now free and carries no advertising.

            In IE, Tools, IE Options, Advanced, & under "Navigation" Uncheck:

            "Activate install on demand" [Other] , and, "Activate install on demand" [Internet Explorer]

              Hmmmm. A little slower or security? You've answered your own question!

              You already stated you didn't like Explorer, Try Opera, it might be for you, although Firefox seems like a more secure answer to me.   :o :o

                I bow to Fed's greater wisdom  ;D, but I would say that Firefox isn't going away anytime soon.

                Most of us are partial to IE because that's what we've been forced to cut our teeth on. But IE is more susceptible to viruses and malware than Firefox, and for this reason many users swear by the latter. Plus Firefox has a number of convenient features not currently available with IE. The downside to Firefox is that some sites won't load with it. In addition, as Firefox increases in popularity it will unavoidably become a more desirable target for hackers.

                Bottom line: try both. Go with the one you like better.
