      What if he likes IE more?

      Use what you like and feel familiar with, don't jump on the fad train because its the fad. Personally I don't like Firefox all that much. Not only are there the memory leaks but i just don't think its quite where it should be yet. I prefer IE by leaps and bounds.

              Zach, Memory Leaks aren't memory leaks in the traditional sense. The memory isn't lost forever, if you restart the process you get all your memory back.

              You can fix these leaks by decreasing the amount of memory to use for the back / forwards cache.

                Personally I find Firefox faster, and having a Linux box, Mac OS X box and a couple of Windows boxs in the house using the same browser version on all of them helps with consistency.

                    Except that it never seems to go back down, I was atad bit unhappy that every time i opened firefox it was consuming 150 megs+ and soon grew to constantly 200, then 300.

                      I'd be curious to see the awstats breakdown of IE vs Firefox on a higher-trafficked site like this one. I personally use Firefox on all my computers.

                        Kier posted while ago, IE still dwarfed Firefox but a large margin.

                          FWIW, personally, I prefer Firefox on a PC (IE6 lacks too many features I rely on, IE7 is too garish) and Camino on a Mac.

                            I prefer Opera to any other browser. I'm using the latest weekly build of Opera 9 right now, and it's very stable and feature-filled.

                              IMHO Firefox has a better feel to it than IE
