What is driving Firefox you ask? Security. Internet Explorer has been plagued with security holes. CERT and other government agencies around the world are telling users to switch to Firefox especially for banking.
Take it from a user who has been using Firefox as his primary browser for about a year, Firefox is best of breed. It is secure, fast and has a list of plugins which allows you to extend usage and look and feel of the browser.
Firefox can be downloaded from http://www.mozilla.org and is available for Microsoft Windows, Linux , Unix and Mac.
