Well, firefox doesn't nessicarly work better. The memory leaks are a real bitch, and it doesn't have patches. It just re-installs ff TOTTALY to a new version, and breaks all of your goddamn addons. Firefox doesn't keep you safer, nesicarlly, it just has different problems. A lot of people use it because they hate IE, but would any of us *really* have survived over the years withougt microsoft? I'm not going to be a supporter, hell no. Buuut I'm not going to say convert to Linux just yet..
