Since you have used both, it is your decision as to which is better.

My own choice is FF/Mozilla, either of which has more useful features, seems to load faster than IE, and since either avoids activeX and is NOT part of the Windows operating system, is inherently more secure.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

With IE you get what you're given.

Firefox comes out of the 'box' in it's most basic form, which is a platform for you to work on. You can select exactly what you want with a huge range of Extensions (Plug-In's) and Themes. You can enhance functions, add more functions, change how it looks, etc etc etc.

Plus, Firefox is a hellovalot safer!
