Pattern Finder: IE 7 vs. Firefox 2.0: Firefox Wins for Me

More IE7 versus Firefox 2.0 -- from my Burton Group colleague Guy Creese

I've used Firefox since its early days, due to its speed and tabbed UI. But I keep IE around because some sites don't work well -- or even function -- with Firefox. I was amenable to going back to IE because I find it a bit of a pain to switch back and forth.

But, unfortunately, while IE 7 certainly got into the general ballpark of Firefox, it didn't blow by it. And, at least for me, IE 7 loads incredibly slowly, while Firefox 2.0 got even zippier. So I'll continue to lead a schizophrenic existence
