Firefox supports small programs, or plug-ins, that add extra functionality to the browser. These programs are called Add-ons. These programs can add a myriad of features ranging from a new toolbar button, a menu option, or even add games to the browser. A large benefit of this Add-on model is that it allows the web browser itself to stay small and efficient, while allowing the end user to add new programs to it as they are needed. If a user wants a new feature that is supported in an Add-on, they simply download it and install it into their browser. If they no longer want this Add-on then they can easily remove it.

Every time you visit a web page Internet Explorer makes a copy of the content of these web pages as files on your computer. These files are called Temporary Internet Files and are used to allow for faster displaying of web sites that you visit. Depending on the setting, when you visit a web site Internet Explorer will compare the content of that web site with the information stored in the Temporary Internet Files and only download the content from the Internet if it has changed. This enables you to browse the web much quicker because you do not have to download these files.
