I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around,
and don't let anybody tell you different

Take your tank to Compton - with Firefox

Doctor Suarez of the Protocols of the Yuppies of Zion tells us why we should be using Firefox instead of Internet Explorer:

With IE, you have to treat the web like you would any major city. You can go to all the places you know, like your friends' houses, some big chain stores, and maybe the occasional mom-and-pop you've come to know and trust. Anything else is a scary, bad neighborhood whose inhabitants eagerly await the opportunity to pick you clean and ruin your life. And, of course, it's really dangerous in the red light district.

While some sociopathic parasite will eventually start building exploits for Firefox, right now it's pretty much the web equivalent of driving through Compton in a tank. Sure, it looks nasty out there, but nobody's really going to fuck with you, and you can still reach the drive-thru window.
