ugh, im a web designer and know a bit of computers and I still dont see the difference. I use IE - "a browser is a browser" - can anyone tell me why IE sucks and Firefox is so great?

IE (v6 I think) but that's only becaase most Operating Systems are Microsoft and I can't be bothered looking out other software.

What's the advantage to using Firefox?

speed, lightness, useful, plugins... beter not microsoft...

avant is not real browser, it's camouflaged, it's powered by ie. But you right better useful from original ie.

One big thing is security, there are many security leaks in I.E. that affect millions of people. Another is customization, with almost all browsers except IE you can change the browser to suit your style and needs. Another is web standards, being that you are web designer I am sure web standards are important to you - with out web standards we are taken back to the mid 90's browser wars with hundreds of useless and annoying "features" that websites required the use of a specific browser.

Most browsers follow new web standards while IE does not.

Just to name a few.

A web designer who does not know why IE is far inferior to other browsers? Jeff, are you joking?! There are more holes in IE's security than in a Swiss cheese! Browsing the web with IE is like fishing for sardines and noticing whales can easily pass through the net.
FF all the way for me (and not just because it's more secure)!!
