    For one, firefox is better, more secure, and more user friendly.

    No ActiveX, less exploits, faster patching of found exploits.

    kemp_Drumsalot, what type of answer are you looking for?

    Firefox is less vulnerable than IE.
    Firefox is open source whereas IE is a Microsoft product
    Firefox allows the use of tabs- IE did not until IE7 was released.
    Firefox allows extensions to be added.

    A firewall is not a built in feature of a browser, so neither include a firewall. However, a firewall can be enabled for use with either browser.

    Anything else?
