You can run both at the same time. I use IE and dont have any problems. All depends on how internet smart you are. They both get spyware, they are both just as safe as the other and the user.

Firefox is way better.
The fact is that it does everything that explorer does, and a whole lot of other things.
Yes you can run both at the same time.

It's a personal preference as you can see.

I vote firefox... but you still need IE for certain things such as some microsoft related sites...

IE is safe as long as you don't surf to untrusted sites, and avoid clicking any pop ups
