Submission + - BBC Compares Firefox 2.0 with IE 7

Quaryon writes: The BBC News web site has an article comparing the two new browser revisions: Firefox 2.0 and Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7. The upshot of the article is that both are now comparable in terms of features, but it seems that Firefox still has a slight edge in some places — a smaller download footprint and no need to restart the machine to install, for example. The article touches on security issues, mentioning new phishing-prevention mechanisms in both browsers.
