honestly i never get the whole "ie is evil" thing. sure, its microsoft, but you're using windows. all firefox is is netscape. i never have problems with IE. it doesn't read my email. it doesn't torment my cat. it doesn't call and hang up. it doesn't eat the last slice of pizza.
its sort of one of the last vestiges of internet elitism, in a culture becoming more and more dependent and aware of internet culture. there are only two arguments to be made. 1)microsoft is evil in its entirety, in which case, switch to mac and shut up. or 2)functionality and honestly, there are a lot of pages that just dont load with firefox.

I just find IE to be...feature-less. Firefox tabs, Opera has awesome mouse shortcuts. IE has...nothing. I don't so much find it evil as irritating.

the firefox tabs drive me nuts honestly. i use my mouse way more than i use the keyboard when surfing. i'd much rather be able to look down to my action bar and see what windows have what open.
and mouse shortcuts? like what. i have a good-ol two button mouse, but i know my gf's mouse which has like 8 thousand, there's one that's forward, another back, and another is reload/refresh.

To each their own. *I* do not have such a cool mouse. I don't know...I've just gotten used to having all the tabs...plus the only time I'm on the computer is to browse the internet...so I don't have a lot of other stuff running. Just seems like it keeps a clearer sceen and such...
