    As for usability IE still wins, IE has got security issues as has FF, but IE
    hasn't got any stupid things wrong with it like it doesn't load when asked,
    fails to display pages at random times, is slow.

    I know lots of individuals who have binned FF in favour of IE after trailing
    it for a while. 45 million downloads of FF is it? How many of them returned
    to IE a short time later?

    I run ZA and AVG and I have never had a problem with security with IE and
    not half the problems I have had running FF. It seems people will cut of
    their nose to spite their face to insist FF is better than IE. Though the
    only feature which is better that IE is the tabbed browsing.

    Professional sectors will not touch FF with a bargepole.

    As for Thunderbird I installed it and promptly uninstalled it as it was
    shocking to use.

    What a load of bollocks !!! I have been using both Firefox and
    Thunderbird both personally and professionally for the past year,
    without as much as a hiccup.

    Bottom line: both IE and FF are equally good browsers. FF of course, has
    the advantage of being the new kid on the block.

    No need for hyperbole, please; I don't think anybody has claimed FireFox
    is perfect, just that it is better than IE. Which admittedly is a pretty
    low bar to exceed...

    From the very article you cite above:

    "the bugs in Firefox worry me a lot less than those in IE, just as the
    patches I have to apply to my Apache web server are less of a concern than
    the monthly collection of Windows Updates on my main desktop machine."

    What exactly was your point here?
