Dudes. Our Googling monkeys tell us that more than half of Snarkmarket’s cosmopolitan, discerning, tastemaking audience still uses frickin’ IE. I don’t know if IE is still the hellish experience it was before I switched over, leaving you in constant peril of attack by nasty viruses and annoying popups. But I do know from the occasional moments when I’m forced to use it that it remains a far inferior browsing experience than Firefox for several reasons. Chief among those: 1) tabs, 2) extensions, 3) configurability, 4) display.
Watch the Rocketboom entry of Dec. 2nd, note the responses of the IE users surveyed, decide you don’t want to be in such company, and sacrifice the one minute and thirteen seconds it takes to install Firefox.
