IE for FireFox

Does anyone have any pros and cons to whether I should use one or the other? I seem to be getting a lot of viruses.

I prefer FireFox. I still use IE to check what my web page looks like, and for some bank transactions, only IE is supported. My son and husband use IE, My husband does not get any more viruses than I do, but my son does. My son is a gamer that is always downloading mods, so I believe his higher virus rate is not related to IE versus Firefox.

I work in IT and do PC sidework. I'll tell you the first thing I tell everyone who says they have lots of viruses: Quit surfing porn. lol.
If that's not an issue, certainly firefox is the way to go. AdBlock is a great plugin that stops a LOT of ads, even fake ones that look real that make you want to click them.

I work in IT as well. Unfortunately the "don't surf porn" is no longer enough. Nowadays attacks can come from any angle, from any site. Not too long ago the New York Times was hosting malware through its advertising. Google "malvertising" sometime.
Get a good antivirus program and a good anti-malware program.

I'm a big fan of Chrome. It's fast, lightweight, and does a good job protecting me from malware (as far as I can tell anyway).

I recently switched from firefox to google chrome. So far I like how much faster it is.

I like firefox, and the plug-ins are good too. I use IE as a back up when I need to, but it doesn't seem as reliable, and I don't trust it as far as viruses and malware are concerned.
