    An even bigger IE hole is that the browser is directly tied to the operating system, and so an attack on IE means an attack on Windows itself. Microsoft is taking a halfway measure against this in the next version of IE. In Vista, but not in XP, there will be a "protected mode" that isolates IE from the operating system and other applications, so IE won't be able to write to a file without a user's consent.

    Does all this mean that IE will be superior to Firefox? I guess not..But to squash Firefox, it doesn't have to -- it just has to improve its security, and add a few extra features. It looks like IE 7 is on the road to doing that. Given that the beta of Firefox 1.5 doesn't add many big new features, aside from handling auto-updates better, this could mean that IE will start to take back the ground it's lost to the Open Source browser.

    I disagree the community plugins available for ff are superior to what IE can produce, tabbing is excellent. It takes me alot to switch over... although if IE started giving sexual favors for browsing that would do it. Otherwise I am stuck with firefox... but then again who knows some of the plugins are very versitile.

    IE7 has tabbed browsing. It makes it a bit easier to use.
    Currently using: Firefox 1.5, IE 7, Notepad, Ms Paint, GIMP
