    IE7 is still effectively a five year old browser with respect to standards.

    I use Firefox, although any standards-compliant browser would be my preference over IE. In fact, sometimes I think phoning up whoever it was who made the website, getting them to dictate the HTML code to me over the phone, typing it out in notepad, and then running it on my PC would be preferable to using IE.

    As for using Firefox over other decent browsers, I think it's the extensions which win me over. Firefox has some great extensions which I love

    Firefox. Most definately. Because it's:
    1. Not Microsoft (yay!)
    2. It works
    3. It barely ever crashes
    4. It has easily writable/downloadable plugins
    5. It's open source (I can take it apart when I feel like it)
    6. The webpages are desplayed normally (on one of my sites, one off the elements had no aligning, so IE centered it?)

    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Opera is way better than Firefox although not as much better than Firefox as Firefox is compared to IE (but then IE7 is still so far behind the standards that plain text would be better than IE)..

    i mean loading firefox..

    not firefox loading web pages

    i have no doubt that firefox loads pages faster than ie7 or any other ie for that matter.

    i also have no doubt that other browsers are faster than firefox.
