    Firefox is much more secure than IE. Also, if you type Firefox addons in a search engine like Google, you will find a while bunch of neat apps you can easily install that make your online experience more fun and helpful. For instance, you can install an add on called Download helper that will allow you to easily download videos from, say, Youtube. There is also another add on called Tab mix Plus that does a lot of things Firefox does not do by default, like allow you to place your tabs at the bottom, which I prefer.

    Then, there is always Adblock Plus... the name explains it's function. :yes

    Firefox is much more intuitive than IE and there is a vast amount of ways that you can personalize it, tailoring it to your preferences. If someone is running on an older system with less than typical memory, FF can present problems, because it uses more memory than IE. But most people have enough memory, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    IE gives little to tinker with. It's like they're saying, "Here it is! This is great!"

    Some of my favorite add-ons are AdBlock (of course), AniWeather, Speed Dial and Grab It. There are so many terrific add-ons, we could start a thread on this alone and get suggestions for ones that people find helpful. :chin :idea

    Firefox is a better supported browser for websites, as coding for IE is annoying. Often many work-arounds are necessary. I know from experience :/
