    Hi Folks,

    While deliberating over optimal layout for an up and coming SEO site, I figured I'd favour (when necessary) IE, because it has the greater demographic.

    But then, I figured hey, I hear a lot about firefox here, and it's entirely possible that FF is the SEO practitioners favourite.. it may be the tools, it may be branding or just popular on the relevant boards.. whatever it is, I'm hunting for the low down on IE vs FF.

    Lay it on me :)

    Cheers,

    On tech oriented sites it's probably 50/50 and on a typical websites about whatever it's around 90/10 in favor of IE. I'd say build for both but be most careful about IE.

    Regardless, you should build initially for Firefox.. Getting it to work in ie after is easy - the oter way round is just hard work. :)

    Yeah, I think you're right.
    The votes are certainly in favour of FF too.

    Just goes to show (so far), market share doesn't describe everything :)

    Well, I love the tab function for web browsing. My desktop has never been so uncluttered.

    Other than that, the resulting HTML pages are usually about similar, with 1% differences, based on my experience from designing HTML pages myself.

    One of Microsoft's strong points has generally good UIs. In this case, however, FF's options menu is very clean, logical, and organized, and I think it easily is better than IE's options UI.

    I used to use IE a lot...but the tab feature of netscape and firefox come in very handy.

    Yeah, I suspected peoples preference for Firefox had a lot to do with the extensions and features etc.

    Keep voting everyone.. the more the merrier :D

    Firefox for the extensions. But It has little flaws like not showing the alt attibutes.

    But was the alt tag designed to be shown? Yes, but only if the image is not available. If you want to have tooltips go and do it with the "title" property of the image.
