"'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.'"

IE does NOT search in the same way. If you have the IE feature turned on (which I do not becuase I hate it) you can't tell IE if you are trying to go to URL or to do a search becuase you do both by typing into the address bar. With Firefox if you want to go to a URL you type in the address bar if you want to search you type in the search bar. IE always ends up returning some lame search results page becuase I mistyped something into the address bar. Therfore I turn off searching from the address bar becuase it is just a really stupid user interface. I don't want the browser trying to figure out what I wanted it to do. I want it to do what I tell it to.
