Mozilla Firefox 2.0 vs. Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
A Comparison of Web Browsers for Windows

For a while it looked as if Mozilla's Firefox browser was destined to become a huge threat to Internet Explorer in the web browser wars. Firefox has continued to slowly but steadily eat away at IE's market share, and for good reason. In many ways it was just a better overall browser than IE 5 or 6. Enter Internet Explorer 7. With many of the same features that helped spark Firefox's popularity as well as its intimate coupling with the Windows Vista operating system, Microsoft's newest browser offering has raised doubts as to whether Mozilla's market share can continue to grow at its current rate.

Both of these browsers have their own respective appeal and deciding which one may be right for you can prove to be a daunting task. This article attempts to make things a little easier for you when decision time arrives.
