Hello, i wanted to know if i should get Mozilla Firefox or keep Internet Explorer. Please vote on the poll and give me feedback on mozilla firefox if you know about it. P.S. Can you have both Firefox and Internet explorer on your computer?

Get Firefox, it's faster, safer, blocks pop-ups, it's not by Microsoft (increases your anti-mainstream-coolness), it has tabbed browsing, which is comfortable as you have more space for other kinds of windows, it has an IRC client build in, it automatically transfers your favourites from your old IE, all the functions are very similar, just different icons...

you can have both browsers installed. You can even open both of them at the same time.

Heh, this is odd. I was actually just having this conversation with someone about 10 minutes ago. My IE is so screwed up, so I wanted another Browser.

Firefox.

Firefox is the greatest thing to ever happen to my computer. Pages load faster, pop ups are blocked, and it just pwns IE soooooo badly.

IE is from Microsoft. That should be reason enough to get rid of it. If not, just look at everything Firefox does that IE doesn't. Tabbed browsers, pop-up blocker (I haven't seen a single pop-up since i downloaded the orignal Mozilla 4 months ago), download manager. Overall, it's just better. And if you decide to be weird, you can keep IE, though I don't see why you would ever want to.

i use IE and do not want anything else, the BIGGEST reason is i do not want anything added to the tool bar, because that takes away from the view space for the sites (as a site designer it pisses me off) and i do not have ANY pop-up problems, and as for download manager, i have never had the need for one, so im fine with IE (anyone who uses netscape or AOL though should be shot on site, fools...)

I gotta agree that AOL and Netscape suck, and there's plenty of room to view the site in the Firefox toolbar.
