The existing Firefox fans will continue to use it.
Mozilla will face problem in getting the IE 7 users switched over to Firefox 2.

It really hurts for me to say, but ... Firefox "2.0"? What "2.0"? It barely changed from 1.0 to 2.0 in the first place! IE 7 looks promising, and IE has always loaded faster than FF. And finally, FF has a security problem! I want to congratulate M$ by somehow finding a way to ditch the stupid menu-bar too from IE.

However I noticed that almost all of IE's "Add-Ons" which can be downloaded at ieaddons.com, are basically features that Firefox has. I think there will be much more when it is officially released.

Update: OMG... MS really loves coporate sponsors... many of their "add-ons" AREN'T FREE! Some of them are over $200! -> http://www.ieaddons....b0-6483d6faedda

"IE's motto is "We heard you"? They didn't give a shit about their users! Why the hell are there $200 add-ons that are supposed to be like FF's extensions? :angry:

Firefox window takes longer time than explorer for first time when you opens a site (specially with 128 or less ram)

IE7 opens faster than FF and it renders pages with same speed as FF does.

True, man. IE (any version) loads pages faster and v7 have a neater layout will make it tough for Mozilla. I see that there's some VERY loyal FF fans, who didn't even look at the Tech Review.

PREDICTION: ALL PROGRAMS WILL LOSE MENUBARS BY 2012! KUDOS TO MICROSOFT FOR "LOSING" IT IN IE7, WMP9-11, OFFICE 2007 & WLM7-8!

Which will win?! IE7 of course, you cannot turn the percantage around so fast. Right now IE6 holds something like 80-85% of the market. IE7 will replace IE6 taking up 80% of the market.

A lot of you misunderstood the point of this thread, or it was created under confusion. The question asks, which browser will win. The answer is obviously IE7 simple because it is integrated into windows, anyone that buys a PC, and doesn't have a clue about anything will use IE7, and "anyone" is the manjority of the public. While people like me will continue to use Firefox. :)

And I will still use IE7, but I have and will continue to use Firefox as main.
