Firefox vs. Mozilla -- Pros, Cons, Differences

Which one is better, and why? (I wonder why the company even has two browsers. Does each fill a different niche?)

I'm looking for an alternative to MS IE. I run Roboform, so I need it to integrate with that.

Please share your 2 cents about security, speed, features, etc

I use both.

Mozilla is on the machine I access newsgroups. My laptop has Mozilla since I need occasional email there. On the work machine I have Outlook 2000 so there it is Firefox.

Choice is good!

Which one

In reply to: Firefox vs. Mozilla -- Pros, Cons, Differences

My wife uses Firefox and Thunderbird. I like an all-in-one approach and hence use Mozilla. I also am not a fan of Internet Explorer, which my wife does not mind using.

If you like IE, then go with Firefox and Thunderbird. If you like an all-in-one answer, look at Mozilla.

They are all great products. Ben
