    The question of "which browser is best" can be debated until the end of time.

    Bottom line: Find the one you like and stick with it.

    "Best for what?"

    For me, I find things simply work better in IE. Many venders websites, Outlook Web Access for work, even doing stuff on this forum here, Firefox doesn't work on many things that I do. Plugins are flakey, and one of my biggest gripes with Firefox, I can't open downloaded files on the fly, always wants me to stick them somewhere with that danged pesky download controller. The arguement wether or not those webpages that don't function correctly in Firefox means that they're not coded correctly to standards isn't my problem....bottom line is I need to see and work with those pages somehow, and if IE is what works, IE is what I'll use.

    Speedwise it's a tossup, image laden pages I still find IE is faster.

    Security wise, well, Firefox may have the lead there, but it also is now being targeted since it's growing in popularity. Remember, the exploiters go after the bigger shares of the market, which used to be just Microsoft, but now since Mozilla is growing, we are reading about security issues in Mozilla now. Microsoft addresses those with free quick 'n easy Windows updates.

    Add to that, I know what I'm doing online, I run well protected with additional tools such as Spywareblaster, Spybot immunization, GoogleToolbar, NOD32 antivirus with IMON support, and of course, windows updates are current.

    Paft is right, it's a debate that will go on forever, kind of like 'Which antivirus is best"...everyone will have their choices and experiences.

    Horses for courses I think, I use both Firefox & IE - Firefox annoys me in that they don't update with patches, you have to download the whole program again, and the last version I downloaded (haven't installed yet) requires you to uninstall the previous version first - haven't worked out whether I will then have to download all the other stuff again as well eg; Spell checker, Flash etc.
    IE updated with SP2 is also a pain blocks pop-ups usually the ones you want - Goggle toolbar stops most but doesn't stop sign-in screens etc, IE does then you sit there like a twit for ages waiting for the screen to open before the light dawns. Also have been designing and developing a web page on my hard drive - won't open them properly stops Active X and such, a real pain.
    Then I have to revert to Firefox to view them.
    These things are sent to try us, and don't they succeed.

    1.4.2 was considered the 4th major iteration of Java. "5.0" was the fifth and corresponds to Java
    1.5.x

    Also, I use FF mainly and although IE isn't horrible, I hate it because it makes my life a living hell when I'm dealing with Javascript and other web languages. Also, Opera is probably the most standards compliant browser, but the interface just looks funny to me (I can't get over it, I've tried). If you can deal with that, it's probably your best bet. Apple's Safari 3.0.2 isn't horrible either.

    Firefox minus the memory leak and random errors, but with operas speed and interface. IE can stop existing for all I care...I'm still mad over its lack of css compatability.
