More functionality including the improper rendering of many sites on the net?
I use Avant Browser (basically an IE skin which adds features like tabbed browsing) and SP2. Between Avant's and SP2s pop-up blocking, I never see them unless I specifically allow them on a site. Add in a nice HOSTS file and blackholeproxy to block all the known ad servers, and there's rarely banners on any pages, as well.
I tried Firefox for a few weeks this past spring, and it wasn't all the MS bashers say it is, IMO. It crashed on several pages that I visit contantly, rendered the rest of the pages horribly, and the plugin stuff with it was attrocious. But, if you like it and think that's better than using IE, more power to you.
