    You should change your thread title to "Why Firefox was more secure than IE in 2006".  And then beat yourself repeatedly.

    I don't think you'll find many people here who will feverishly defend IE, even here. If you really want to be successful in trolling efforts, you should have started a topic "Windows sucks" (especially "Windows 7 sucks"), or possible worse: ".NET sucks". Maybe next time.

    Well, I like IE and I use it instead of Firefox but that's not why I would defend it so strongly. I have the bad habit of viciously arguing a point simply because the other person annoys me.

    Oh, and Firefox is FAIL until they implement Shift+Enter for their URL box. I can't live without it.

    What exactly does Shift+Enter do?  On IE8/Win7, it doensn't seem to do anything (well, it loads the page, but it doesn't do anything special).

    start typing an address in the address bar, the first option will be a shift+enter. so if you types http://www.microsoft.com before and go to it alot try to type just "mic" and see the first option. to get here i just type "c" and then shift+enter. "h" to get to hotmail (i still use the old address).

    Ah, I see.

    I use Tab, Enter for the same effect in Firefox.

    Bass was kind enough to answer that one for me.

    i don't think this 'discussion' of who's doing what first is beneficial nor constructive or even worth the discussion altogether. innovations are built on other innovations. people compete on bringing the same feature so that they don't lose to other products. they create better features to establish strong points. its a natural thing to integrate new features to products eventhough they are based on the same ideas. ff, ie, safari, they all competing each other on performance, security, ease of use, etc.

    i myself doesnt really care of whose doing what first, in the end its the users who decide on what to use. i use ie mainly because i trust its security policy and features is better. i could be wrong there, but thats how i feel. i use firefox if ie fails, eg: i cant get some site to work. if it still fails on ff, then i know that the site is broken.
