Firefox does tabbed browsing, popup blocking, warning the
user before executing downloaded software, and it supports
add-ons that do gazillions of other usefull things. It
also runs on more platforms and operating systems than IE.
Sure, IE has added some of these features in version 7,
but there never would have been a version 7 without
Firefox to light someone's tail on fire at Micros~1.
Prior to version 7, IE had gone about 10 years without any
sign of innovation (unless you count the Google Toolbar...)
