Why I choose IE7 over Firefox 2

The answer is simple: ClearType Text in IE7. I have an LCD screen and the ClearType text just looks a lot better. Maybe Firefox has more cool extensions, implements the standards better, etc., but for now IE7 wins for me.
Update: After reading a comment from reader, I found out you can use ClearType for almost everything in Windows. So I'm using Firefox now.

you could also right click on the desktop, click the appearance tab and select the "effects..." button.

Then check the "use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" and select cleartype. Now not only will your browser's text look nice on your LCD but all of windows will too... including firefox. ;o)
