“The French police force plans to ditch Microsoft’s Internet Explorer as its preferred browser software and replace it with Firefox by the end of the year.”

While I can write/talk about the security advantages of running Firefox over IE, some people do it, like the French police force. IE 7 has not yet proven that it will fix any of the security problems in IE, which as most of us know stem from ActiveX. But, will Microsoft keep Activex? I think yes, and one big reason is that there are numerous, very large, web sites that use it. For now, I suggest you use Firefox. Of course, you already know that because most people who come to this web site already use Firefox (In January 2006):
