    Almost always an unhelpful answer, calculated only to start yet another totally useless "my browser is better" thread.

    No problem opening CJ in Mozilla here.

    Hope I don't start a flamewar here, but here are my findings on the two browsers:

    IE:

    Nearly every two pages someone is trying to download spyware onto your computer (Gator, and much worse).

    Security Holes are just too many to deal with. There are so many ways to hijack someone's computer with IE it's just not funny anymore. I consider IE the biggest security risk around right now.

    Mozilla:

    Virtually no security risk, and any that are found are updated immediately. No spyware to date.

    Tabbed browsing makes life GREAT! You can open the browser with 10 tabs as your "home page" so each time you reboot you have a consistent browing experience.

    It's not bloated (IE can take hundreds of megs after a few days of use), and the RAM usage is low (under 30 megs after many days of use).

    Extensions are amazing - from Google to translation support, all extensions are completely plug and play and very easy to install/uninstall (try that with Explorer).

    Shockwave, Quicktime, Acrobat support out of the box in a more secured environment.

    Did I mention it's FASTER than any other browser I've ever used?

    As well, I've found that Mozilla renders HTML near perfect to what IE renders. Opera never was able to do that. And opera was bloated and buggy...

    Great pop-up suppression...

    I'm waiting for them to mature their email client and then it's BYE BYE Outlook and all I will be using is OpenOffice and Mozilla for my applications... won't that be nice!

    Bottom line; if you use the Internet a lot, try Mozilla Firebird for a couple days (you can download just the browser if you don't want the whole suite). You won't go back. Really.

    I use both and can't say I like one over the other. I'm trying to finger out which one makes me more money. Soon as I do I'll let ya'll know.

    I switched to Firebird and love it! However, I dispise that I can't ctl+n for a new window so when I'm tired and need to keep working, I go back to IE. I only use opera for testing.

    I use control-T for a new tab, control-W to close the current tab, and control-N to open a new window (a new instance of mozilla with just one tab in it).

    Also, I recommend the Tabbrowser extensions, as well as the More Options extension which allows you to configure Firebird to a much better degree that it's out of the box configuration screens...

    All this talk about Firebird I decided to try it. It does seem faster. Only thing I don't like is the Google bar doesn't have Page Rank.
