This may not be the right place to post this, but I was wondering whether I should upgrade to FireFox. I used to use IE, but I switched over to Avant browser. I love it, but I hear so much more about firefox. Could someone who has used both tell me if this is a good idea?

FF is great, now I am assuming you have either DSL or Cable internet, otherwise you probably won't notice the speed difference, but I use FF with the FasterFox extension which I have set to turbo.I haven't used Avant though but I do love FF. especially the tabbed browsing and bookmarks, and also how you can restart where you left of if the browser or computer shuts down for some reason

You can have more than one browser. I recommend installing Firefox and trying it for at least 2 weeks. That will give you time to get used to it and then you can decide if you like it. You should try it, you won't be sorry.
I use Firefox almost exclusively but still have IE and recently started playing with Opera.
It's always a good idea to have a second browser in case you develop problems with one of them.

Dont know about Avant but IE6 has more security issues than FF and FF is so much faster. like the other guy said, you can have more than one browser...I use FF, and my wife uses Netscape, on the same computer.

Since i started using Firefox a few years ago I noticed a huge decline in viruses/spyware/adware. I used to have problems every day because of the huge amounts of junk that was ending up on my computer. It took me about a week to "adjust" to firefox and I haven't looked back since. Its definitely worth a try.
