Internet Explorer -vs- Firefox

There are two very popular internet browsers on the web.  When using google analytics to check my website stats today, I found that there were more Firefox browsers than ever before. Is Microsoft Interenet Explorer on it’s way out? Is Firefox soon to be “standard” for internet browsers?

I noticed that on my wifes PC, her Internet Explorer would keep locking up. When I downloaded Firefox on her computer, and she started using it regularly, we never had her system lockup ever again. I noticed that some webpages (including my own), looked different in Firefox too.

Firefox claims to have the following advantages:

  • Faster surfing using tabs:
    Several websites open at the same time? Firefox has a special feature that enables you to browse easily and quickly from one window to another.
  • Popup blocking:
    Fed up with windows that open up spontaneously? Mozilla Firefox recognises and blocks unwanted popups automatically, ridding you of this irritation.
  • More secure:
    Spyware, adware, worms and viruses? Mozilla Firefox automatically protects you against these, removing any worries you might have in this respect.
  • The Google toolbar:
    A search feature always at hand when you are looking something up? No problem. Use the Google Toolbar to search effortlessly and at high speed. This is a standard feature of Mozilla Firefox.

I have compared the two and see many similiarities, I’m wondering if it is just a matter of preference?!?

Just trying to decide which one is best for me to use with the amount of Internet Searching and Browsing I do. Would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this. Which one do you use and why? I am most curious.

Always trying to be the smart Fox, and Exploring new and better ways to browse the NEW WEb 2.0!
