I have been using Firefox since it was first released as Phoenix back in 2002.

I don't use Firefox because I dislike IE. I use Firefox because it can be customized more. Not just aesthetically but functionally. Firefox's features currently fit me more than IE does.

Same here. People tell these horror stories of IE downloading crap onto your computer if you so much as breath on it, and yet I have never found it to alow any more junk onto my system the Firefox.

I dislike IE because of it's much slower loading times than Firefox, and everyone knows faster is better!

Most people hate IE cuz they're stupid and need a scapegoat for their incompetence.
