this goes for both FF and Opera
1. Tabbed Browsing -- it seriously helps, its more organized
2. not being a part of windows pakage -- with this i mean that IE being a part of windows pakage can be hacked to install various spywares, one single harmless looking OK button can do a lot things
3. lesser bugs .... not being a part of M$ venture
4. lesser choice for toolbar buttons .. just look at what buttons FF and opera can offer .. it helps in better and faster navigation
5. no need to install any 3rd party popup blocker etc

Opera
1.definitely faster than IE
2.wand password manager rocks
3.opera has those Fast Forward and Rewind buttons .. which change into login in a page where u have to login next
4.opera can show all pics in a directory with Fast Forward button .. no need to click on each and every photo link ... <--- i luv this one

Firefox
have you ever heard of something called Extensions
FF extensions make it more versatile and way more useful than any other browser ...
Just try these extensions in FF ->
BBCode
SwitchProxy ( if u use proxies )
Paste and Go
DownloadWith
etc

the bottomline is that IE has less features and less security

okie buddy i will show u just a preview of what firefox can do and IE can't :D

put on your seatbelts and get ready for the ultimate ride with FF :D :p after this you will never use dat sucking IE again :D

1) An exellent cache sytem opens the previously loaded site in an instant.
2) It's an OSS so all the bugs get's patched up as soon as it is discovered.
3) Open's the websites fast.
4) well that was theroy and it is usually boring so let me show u FF in action :D

1) Tabbed browsing: no need to open 100's of new windows to sufr different sites...

2) Tabbed bookmarks: You can bookmark you frequenty visited sites just with one click...

7) Displays favicons: Displays a small favicon that the webmaster has used but that IE can't display it

There are more features but these are the most striking of them all..... so forget that IE and get firefox now!!!

oK!! :shock: people agreed with wat all U have said THX!! for ur posts i'll install FF today itself ...... but can U explain me one more thing how can we say tht FF or Opera are fast???

Actually i wanna know in wat sense they R fast ? i think the site opening procedure involves ur connection speed .... completely or else nothin is there!!! to be laid on neither the browser u r using!! ...

Tell me in wat sense they r fast?? How can be a browser be fast? I thought it's abt getting a thread from the server of tht very respective site isn't it ??

IE ? wat is that?

U talkinag about browsers? IE just another big bug in MS kit u get with the OS.

Its really a big hole in ur PC refer teh Chip Intelligent Computing NOV isssue cover story for more details.

I have been using Opera for more than 2 yrs. Its simply great. u wont switch back to IE. but it has some problem with the js dont woking for it.

With the arrival of Firefox, OPera is moving out .. Fox is growling these days..
Dont worry Opera fans.. they are coming with a big innovations... the Auto Resizing

Anyway Firefox is the best today. i reccomend it.. Opera.. still my fav... still the fastest.. no one runs ahead there
 
Try out opera and ull kno wat fast loading of page means.
U first see the whole page without the pics and gfx only the page with plain text then the frills add on slowly.
Unlike in other browsers like ff or ie wer in the page loads section by section by section along with the pics without loading the entire page of text.
one plus pint of opera which i like over others is the advantage tat u can customise ur page tabs by dragging them to loacation u want which cant be done in FF.
Also i havent seen paste and go in FF

Windows
Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1(sometimes in the skin of Avant)

Linux
Opera 7.54 (mouse gestures are cool)
Lynx (the ultimate)

lol

BTW IE is fast in rendering the HTML pages.....

by fast i meant is dat firefox loads the files from the cahce and the new ones fro the server so on the long run using FF rocks :D
