Firefox is superior to IE in most ways, including security. There are very
few sites with "presentation" issues (i.e., which look "funny"). About the
only things that very rarely cause problems are Activex controls (because
they are a proprietary technology - they are also a gigantic security risk
BTW). As another poster pointed out, a Firefox extension (ieview) allows
you to seamlessly open any such pages in IE.
