    I've been using it since it was in Beta. Can't find any fault with it. Of course, I quit using IE out years ago and had been using Netscape and then Mozilla exclusively, so it was a natural progression. The only problem is the occasional website that is so enamored with (or brainwashed by) Microsoft that they use HTML and other language extensions WHICH DO NOT CONFORM TO THE LANGUAGE STANDARD, but which Microsoft has added to IE to try and stifle the competition. So I am forced to keep IE on my machine and when I find such a site, I send nasty messages to the appropriate webmaster.

    There is an extension for Firefox that lets you "switch to Firefox" when you are in IE.

    As ddockstader mentioned , you will find the odd site which hasn`t jumped aboard the mozilla band-wagon , and to me that means they are behind the times. To date mozilla does not have near the exploits imbedded in IE but as it becomes popular more will surface . But fixes are almost instant and easily fixed . Not like IE which after weeks or even months , they list it on their website ....after many have already felt the wrath of MS ......try it and you`ll never go back .

    I think it's great. I have fewer crashes, I love the download manager and the password manager that comes with it. I switched to it almost a year ago and NEVER use IE unless that is the only format allowed on a site (i.e. FilePlanet).

    I've also been using Firefox since it was in beta. It's faster than IE, also.
    Like everyone else, I've found the occasional page that doesn't work right, so I'm forced to use IE. I've installed it on 3 machines here at home, and we all use it now. And I don't recall my Firefox ever 'freezing' like IE does.
