I personally go for FireFox, not everyone wants the thrilling ActiveX stuff, they want a simple browser that doesn't mess their computer.
IE has a freakin' death grip on your computer, and if something goes wrong with IE, it can mess up your whole rig.
FireFox is, in my opinion, much better than Mozilla. Go with FireFox, DL some extra plugins, and if I talk to my friend, I think I can get you guys a way to speed up FireFox. Something you can not do with IE.
It maks pages load like 1000203498203984 times faster, Pretty sweet.
FireFox has ANY plug-in you can think of. You can change the theme, everything.
It is the best browser.
IE is up there with AOL, meaning it suckzorz, yes yes it's nice, but for what it is... not good...
