Mozilla Firefox is safer than Internet Explorer, but i prefer IE's interface better.

What i mean by "safer" is that Firefox blocks plugins from being installed.

Mozilla Firefox currently based on customisation and features and not forgetting adaptibility. There are others such as Conquerer, Opera, Netscape but I feel firefox is the best currently. Internet Explorer is not an option in it's current form but it may be useable when version 7.0 is released which is should be soon.

It's a beta which means bugs are to be expected which defeats the purpose of best browser. It's firefox currently with both official releases for Windows and Linux, 32 bit or 64 bit.
