"It has been an uphill battle for new browsers to break ground in this Microsoft world of ours. Do to the fact ie comes with all windows based machines most end users do not know there are any other browsers on the market. Firefox however has been gaining major ground on the Internet Explorers of the past. Most users switch to Firefox because of its invulnerability to spyware (in the beginning) once they got used to tabbed browsing IE was never touched again. The IE 7 came out sporting its own tabbed browsing, but again loyal fire fox users loved there plugins. Then Firefox 3 came out and infuriated the masses, I for one hate the new Firefox but agree it is faster. The memory dumping is killing me a few windows open and my task manager says it is using 280k memory resources."
