FF. Add-ons and extensions mostly. Plus it looks simple and clean. IE7 is too messy. I've used Opera and it's good too.

I just started using firefox cause IE 7 seems to **** up too easily and is slow at times. FF is definetly faster and seems to use less resources. What ext's or add ons do you recommend?

FF. Fast, nice options, good add-ons.

I will use IE only when necessary (if ActiveX is required .e.g Outlook Web Access in advanced mode)

FF

because it is fast, secure, and I couldn't live without some of the add-ons I have installed

Flashblock, Adblock, you can even put a sports ticker at the bottom of the page.

FF. Ad block plus.

I groan when I am forced to use IE for any particular site or app.

No, but I hate fit to screen. In fact, I loathe it. My parents use it all the time for everything and I despise it.

But what is it doing?

But what is it doing?It wouldn't automatically fill my screen. I just discovered I can drag each side to the edges of the screen.

Green button?

Are you using Safari on Windows?

On a mac, there's a green button that acts as the Maximize button.

That depends on your theme. No green button on mine.

IE blows. I use FF 99% of the time. It would be 100%, but when I am traveling, I enter my payroll info on the company portal, and the portal only works on IE. I like the add ons with FF. One of my preferred add ons is the weather bar on my browser. I used to use weather bug but had become dissatisfied with it and had uninstalled it. The FF add on works much better for me.

I use the IE extension for that.
