Firefox - The Platform

Master_Ruthless Please don't go there Firefox (589 comments)

Internet Explorer is what it is because Microsoft stopped thinking of it as a web browser and started thinking of it as a development platform. Many of the most abused, insecure features of IE (the infamous Browser Helper Objects being the best known example) were bloated on after a few versions in an attempt to make IE a more viable development platform.

It is precisely because Firefox lacks those "features" that I use it.
