Missed my point Sarah, the infected default firefox browser statement...

What I meant was the clients had FireFox installed, it was their default browser (meaning they used it not IE) and they still managed to infect their computer.

I don't really care, because IE 7 works great for me and FF is prtety good too. I find FF is better for older PC's and IE 7 seems good enough for newer ones.

Ahh! I see, your saying security is not an argument to move to FireFox. I agree with you. I think it really is just a preference war at this point. Which ever you prefer, just like different computers, e-mail program, keyboard, software, mouse etc.

I certainly don't try to move over my non-tech family members and friends. For one reason, that is so they don't call me for help! They already think I know how to solve every computer problem. Don't need them calling me about something else.

Sarah I'm glad there's someone else out there that doesn't try to impose FireFox on everyone.

I can see the performance stance, that makes sense. I can see the plugins, but don't tell me FireFox is better than Internet Explorer because of Security Reasons.

I still want to test leaving FireFox and IE7 open to the same page overnight and seeing which one steals more memory.

I'm personally an IE guy, always have been, and always will be. Typically, I'll test any website that we build in FF though, because FF doesn't recognize a lot of common things, and yes, I'm talking about following strict standards...FF still doesn't recognize some of it. Thus when testing in FF, I end up having to find workarounds.

Everytime I use firefox, I end up switching to IE 7 again because some site just doesnt open right using FireFox (many scripts are programmed by IE formats)...can't do much in that case...so end up back to IE....anyhow IE has tabs and seems pretty decent now....But yeah firefox just feels a bit more "Nice" to me.

It would have to be FireFox for me. I prefer it for designing and doing general tasks. I will however use IE7 should the need rise - especially to see what a design looks like in IE.

Both are good browsers and IE really has moved up the ladder and its got more security features.
