What is Microsoft Firefox? Is it better than regular (Mozilla) Firefox? Is it free? Which one should I get? Regular Firefox with Google toolbar or Microsoft Firefox with Google toolbar? Currently, I am using Internet Explorer 7.0 with Google toolbar. I am not having any problem with it. Should I get Firefox at all? Is it REALLY better than IE 7.0? In what way (aside from smaller file size)? I also have AOL 9.0 optimized. I am only thinking about getting Firefox because I build Web sites. I want to know what my Web site will look like when viewed through different browsers, so that I can make adjustments where necessary. Can keeping three different browsers in the same computer cause any problem? Can I use them simultaneously? I have two at the moment without any problem.

Using different browsers simultaneously should not cause any conflict whatsoever. There are additional reasons for using Ff besides testing your site to assure it is web-standard compliant; Ff is often faster, and is certainly more secure than IE7 (remember IE7 is part of the Windows OS). The folks at Mozilla are faster at patching major security problems than MS, make constant improvements and updates to the browser (not once every four years), and the open source community provides a TON of plug-ins that allow you to tailor your browser to your unique needs. And, of course, it includes spell-checker for posting here at BC!
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
