Dear CNET members,
With Firefox's huge success, it has tapped into the Microsoft's market share for Internet Explorer. While this may not be a counterattack to Firefox, Microsoft is set to release an updated version of IE, Internet Explorer 7 to tie up some security issues. But really, is Microsoft reacting to growing concerns about browser security, or does Firefox have the company on the run? Should Mozilla Firefox be scared? What can we expect from the new IE? I know you have a lot say, but before you start, check out what Senior Editor Molly Woods's comments in her new AnchorDesk column, "IE 7: so much for Firefox." Do you agree or disagree? Don't hold back 'cause we are all ears. TalkBack here.
This week's hot topic:
IE Strikes Back?
Will the release of IE 7 put an end to the Firefox rebellion? In her AnchorDesk column, Molly Wood recently posed that question and most of you made it clear--long live Firefox!
Stick up for the little guy
No matter what enhanced security or nifty features the next version of IE will bring, CNET user Sand is going to stick with Firefox. Along with the desire to root for the little guy, Sand simply likes the way Firefox works.

Just getting started
CNET member Spydr_cl brings up a great point: Firefox has managed to change the browser landscape, and this is only a first release. Just imagine the browser's functionality when it gets to its seventh version.

Too slow to be a contender
Considering the length between each release of IE, CNET member ace942 thinks that Microsoft will never be able to catch up to Firefox, especially when it comes to browser interface and innovation.
