    as of this moment, Firefox is working way better than Internet Explorer for me. IE hangs up on me all the time and whenever I try to open a heavy website, it stays quite for a while (stuck of course) and then the page loads. It is quite bothersome.
    Firefox has its own crashes and bugs but they are quite less in comparison to IE.

    Mozilla Firefox, without a doubt. I'm not sure why anyone would use IE anymore.

    If I had to choose between IE and FF I would choose FF, but I find chrome to be much lighter and faster than both.

    Firefox is the way to go, IE always crashes on me, I got rid of IE years ago.

    I recently started using Firefox & have never looked back. It appears to be much quicker, with nice little extras such as customisation of the design/ appearance etc. I would definitely recommend Firefox all the way!

    Firefox and Opera are best for me. Always on top smooth and safe ride with both.

    I would choose Safari, not that I don't have a PC but I have never had any major glitches with safari like it doesn't respond or got stuck. IE is really slow for the most part in my experience, Firefox is fine and I guess its getting better.

    This really can depend on many things. Out of the many Internet browsers out there, my three favorites are Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 5, and Google Chrome 11. Not in that order. It can always be good to have more than one browser, just in case one happens to fail due to a bug in the program or a possible virus/malware infection. Internet explorer 9 is great if you don't really do much besides surf the net. Google Chrome is the fastest out the three. I personally use Chrome myself because of the speed. That being said Mozilla Firefox CAN be the most secure IF you get security addons. Some addons that are good are Adblock plus, Adblock plus pop up addon, browser protect, and wubi. If you really want to go all out with firefox I highly suggest adding Noscript has another addon. This one allows you to choose which sites will activate javascript, which can slow down the loading of pages, or permit viruses to enter your PC.

    IE and Firefox are both equally safe.  But I think Firefox is the fastest of the 2.  Google Chrome is the fastest out of all of them.  But Google has some serious quality and security issues.  Firefox also offers numerous great plug ins that may help you be more efficient in your everyday business.
