Mozilla Firefox – Internet Browser

Free, open source alternative to IE
Free, open source alternative to IE

Since Firefox first came out, it has been hailed as being better in security and features than Internet Explorer by every person and website I know. I've been using it a while now and found it to be the case.

Most importantly, you can install plugins that improve Firefox's security and functionality. If something bugs you about the way IE works, you're stuck, but with Firefox, you can often find a modification to fix it.
