Firefox 3 is absolutely horrendous with Java and .pdf files.

Other than that, it's alright. It's still crashed on me a few times.

firefox uses alot more ram but because of that its faster and just more reliable.

IE gets viruses so much easier .. for me anyway

the new 3.0 uses like half as much RAM



"Smaller Memory Footprint

Short and sweet, Firefox now uses less of your computer’s memory while it’s running."

Youtube and other flash video players randomly stop, or play without sound.
