AMEN! I cannot agree more! I recently converted to Mozilla for my browsing, and I wouldn't go back if you PAID me! Loads pages SO much faster, and the features that come with Mozilla kick Internet Explorer's a$$!

You have to pay for Opera. Don't you?

**EDIT** No you don't.

i use IE religiously. I keep it up to date on patches. For the zero day outbreaks, i run a firewall. It's not the application, its the user.

I'm not sayin IE is a bad program, its just that firefox has better options.. plugins... etc. Its easier to use.
