In reality, there is not much difference between them.

I know this is heresy to the anti-MS crowd.

But there you go.

Have just migrated to firefox and am feeling it was worthwhile. I would recommend the switch.

Firefox IS a much more "compliant" browser than IE. IE has lots of quirks and non-standard interpretations of the HTML standards. Firefox will render pages as they were intended far more times than IE.

Additionally, the plugins available for Firefox are so numerous. Things like Firebug, SEOQuake, etc. make lives of developers, SEOs, etc. so much better. Those types of plugins are just not available in the same numbers for IE.

I use both. I use primarily IE... but when I need some "special" functionality I use Firefox + a plugin. If a site is not rendering properly in IE, I will also use Firefox.

Default Firefox Extensions

All the extensions that developers make for Firefox make it worth switching to. Especially when you're trying to do SEO/other advanced web stuff.

You bet !! I really think that firefox is great but like I said, the last beta I tried was not so good (at least, it was only a beta, so we'll see)... I'm always nostalgic when I get something new I guess...

The user interface is straightforward and uncomplicated

If you are trying to download some file, it will be automatically saved to your desktop. If you are using Google search engine for your search needs, you will appreciate the built in Google toolbar. Your Firefox toolbar will also include usual features like bookmarks, history, and text size and is customizable to include additional tools and features. If you would like to have an access to an email client you will need to download the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client software.

You don't have to be a computer professional to install this new browser. The installation and setup are very simple and straightforward and were designed to minimize the amount of work that needs to be done by the user. All your settings will be imported into Firefox.

I agree to these points. I even prefer Firefox over IE due to these reason. Firefox is really fast, secure, easy to use and navigate.

IE9 is supposed to be really good for home use now, I have the IE9 Beta, have to say it reminds me alot of Chrome (which i use more regularly) Chrome is just great, hard to explain why exactly but it is!
but yeah firefox is simply better then Ie8, that's all there is to it.
