What is the difference between IE and FF?
It's all the same language, I just want to know what the official techniques are.

If you know any, please post them.

Thanks,
Shaffer.

Most modern browser handle HTML in much the same way, but Firefox and other alternative browsers are much closer to the W3C specifications, whereas IE6 and 7 are playing catchup and are forced to handle many compatibility features so that ites built for older IE versions still work as expected.

As long as you are ensuring that you are using standards-compliance mode [webmasterworld.com] by using the right doctype [webmasterworld.com], then you can minimize the differences between the two when building pages.

For overall use, Firefox is miles ahead in terms of sheer usability than IE.
