Thumbs up Internet Explorer Alternative

For those of you like me who may be searching for an alternative to IE. Here is the best run at Microsoft in a long time.

Firefox

Its fast as hell loading images etc, plus tabbed browsing rocks.

Firefox is awesome. I switched over a few months ago. It's safer, cleaner and faster.

The best part: NO POP-UPS!!! Firefox won't allow it.

Second, if you're surfing at work, it's a lot safer.
It doesn't leave a trail of breadcrumbs like IE does.

Do you want IE to improve? If you do, pimp firefox to everyone you know. Competition will make Microsoft better.
