Default firefox??

Is it really worth it to switch to firefox from IE? Last time I did it a few years ago they messed with eac other and firefox didnt seem to be much difrent.

Depends on the IE.

The new IE 7... No, its probably not worth the swap. Though, I personally love Opera.

I've been using firefox for a while, and prefer it too IE. Plus theres alot of extensions you can add, like adblock and noscript. People say its more secure.

I agree, although both browsers are good (and Opera too), i prefer Firefox mainly because i customize it a lot more by means of Add-Ons and extensions, as well as nice looking themes. If you want speed, i suggest Opera as it is meant to be the quickest around...As for safety, i believe Opera also takes the cake, but i never have had any problems with Firefox before..

Firefox is a lot better browser than IE and is worth the switch.

I don't care for IE7, it's not as stable as I'd like but it's not as bad as IE6. I prefer firefox or opera, they're both lighter and more secure. I also like the opera has widgets and firefox has extensions

I just get a lot of this page can not be displayed and I know my connection is fine. One more question will the 2 browsers conflict with each other if I have them both?
