Pros Powerful new tools, great security, very fast, no unnecessary toolbars @ startup, tons of customizable themes
Cons Looks fairly the same
Summary If you're still using Internet Explorer you may as well be in the dark ages. Mozilla's browser is way more secure than IE and is faster and more flexible, as well. You can even browse a page in IE if necessary with one click. Tabbed browsing is the best thing to happen to browsers recently. Just scroll click something and it's in a new tab. Couldn't get more simple than that.

Pros Great alternative for hobbyists and true capitalists
Cons Does not have the marketing and support to fight
Summary Firefox is sorely needed to continue pressuring the other browsers to innovate. Without this pressure, the big dogs will sit back, get lazy, and reduce the prospect of efficient web interactivity in the future.
Cons Not Enough People use it
Summary I adore my Fox. I've been an extreamly satisfied user for at least two years(I don't remember exactly when I downloaded it :P) I tell everybody about it, so much so that I think I make people sick of hearing me talk about it(I'll never get sick of talking about it though). I love the themes and extentions which makes my Fox truly my fox, almost like a fingerprint, I mean everyone has them but no two are alike. I recremend to download it, use it, customize it; you'll see that you will love it as much as I do! All other browsers are just chasing the FOX.
Pros tabbed browsing of course , free , can add extensions and themes .... hundreds of them
Cons cudnt find many but there are some bugs and some unexpected crashes .... otherwise its really the best browser!!

Pros Extensions, open source
Cons Still young
Summary Interesting to note that the comparison gives Firefox 2 a no for tab history, crash recovery, etc. While this may be true for the base product, this is all available now in Firefox 1.5 via extensions (Tab Mix Pro).
What I also found stunning is that, as per 1.0 - 1.5, FF2 has taken the best extensions and made them part of the next base release. This is the way of the future, and the reason (IMO) why Opera and IE, as good as they may become, will not be able to keep up with Firefox in the long run.
