    Firefox Rocks!

    I downloaded Firefox in January, and I am absolutely in love with it.  The ad-on features are fantastic, and it's so much less buggy than IE.

    Really Prefer Firefox

    I recently heard that a study was conducted and the internet users who had Internet Explorer as their default browser turned out to be less intelligent than the users who used Firefox as their default browser. I agree.

    Standards Compliance And Add-ons Are Different Issues : Firefox Vs Chrome

    If you work best with FF with add-ons, then the standards compliance issues probably will not matter.I use Chrome Beta, so buggyness comes and goes.FF and Chrome will be fully standards compliant eventually, but Chrome will probably be there sooner.
