Why I Will Use Firefox 2, Not Internet Explorer 7

Gervase Markham has a well-written blog post on why you should stick to Firefox as opposed to switching to IE 7.

I think he really nails it. To cut a long story short:

  1. Firefox stood up for the user when Microsoft/IE stood down.
  2. Microsoft’s only motive to produce and update IE is control over internet access.

And I’d like to make an additional point: a heterogeneous web is a healthy web. If everyone uses the same web browser, we’re all more vulnerable to virus attacks and similar stuff. It’s simple logic.
