Yeah, I remember netscape. Looking for hopefully a new version of it is how I came across Mozilla years ago. Used that until they released firefox. Never looked back on IE.... It's one of the first things that gets installed whenever I have to reinstall windows on my machines.

the new IE tried so hard to copy firefox but failed miserably.

I heard that firefox is the fastest, most secure, most customizable web browser out there (according to their website =]) and I gave it a try.

the 'about:config' feature of firefox, which speeds it up, pretty much sold me on it. I'll never go back to IE

FF FTW!

Firefox FTW! I have no antivirus or firewall, and I still haven't gotten any spyware/viruses. My lappy with IE on the other hand... Yesterday I had to reformat...

You don't know that unless you have an antivirus / anti spyware

While we're on the topic of programs....

NOD32 v3 best antivirus
Built in fw should suffice if you have a router.
