13 Reasons To Use Firefox Over IE
Thursday February 12th, 2004
"'A feature which I thought was going to be integrated in Internet Explorer 6 was a download manager. Download managers allow you to manipulate and take control of your downloaded files. Mozilla Firefox's download manager contains just the essentials to allow you to control your downloads. You can pause your download and continue it a later time, something which is not possible with IE's download manager. Apart from sporting a nice look, the download manager stores the information such as size and location of your downloaded file. When the download is complete, a small notification is displayed in the lower right side of the screen.'"

Integrated Search Engine Now why didn’t the IE programmers think of this? Mozilla Firefox comes with a built in search engine. The default search engine is Google’s, of course, with the ability to add others. The search entry takes up a very small space, which is a plus when compared to those huge toolbars out there.
-- IE can search, in the same way as Mozilla. Type in something, and under the address bar will appear "Search for /whatever/." It does an MSN search by default, but I remember once chaning it to another, probably Altavista because this was back before Google's popular days.
