Thanks, I'm gonna do that. I just discovered the "Trash" icon that retrieves closed tabs. That will be handy if I accidentally close a tab, which I do all the time with IE7.

+ Firefox has an amazing modular extensions system, which allows extra addons to fix properly within the application.
+ It has superior page rendering. It conforms mostly to the W3C standards, which is an organization responsible for basically making everything you see on every page work!
+ Loads things slightly faster than IE7.
+ Less bugs. Think of it this way, is it possible to report a bug for IE7? The only people who report and fix IE7 bugs are people who work at Microsoft. Whereas everyone can submit and fix bugs with FF. It's thus much more stable.

As for saved passwords... I don't use that feature. I hate it. I turn it off.

FF3 is on par with Opera 9.5 and has better features.

Honestly, for me, it's all about the extentions/add ons. I can't live without Ad block Plus, Flashgot, Translator, and a dozen other things that make browsing faster and easier.

Also, to open a blank tab, either scroll click or double click the little bar below the tabs, that will open a new blank one.
