I am using Mozilla Firefox 2 and i was not aware of that Mozilla Firefox 3[Download] has been released. Just now came to know the fact that it created a Guinness World Record of maximum no of downloads in a single day. Mozilla Firefox 3 was officially released on June 17, 2008 and it has 8 million hits on the first day of its release itself and it is named as “Download Day 2008”. Mozilla 3 has 12 million hits till today. This popularity is enough to tell its use. In the cold war between IE and Mozilla Firefox,it is undoubtedly Firefox is one which is going to be honoured as the best and also as per the Google Statistics. The reasons are: The download time of Mozilla is in 1 or 2minutes but for IE it takes 20 to 25 minutes and it asks to close all windows and need a reboot i think so. Next the plugins are free in Mozilla but IE sucks because we need to buy those plugins. Its always the problem with Bill Gates we have to pay him for everything. Mozilla is more sustainable to security threats and phishing attacks but IE allows a lot of popups and ads. With the power of Firefox 3 you can be able to do anything through the plugins while you are browsing the net.

If your are an IE user, I recommend you to change to Mozilla without any hesitation.
