    Spybot is useful whether you use Firefox or IE because you can still download programs that could contain spyware/adware. So you'll need Spybot to scan for it.

    Also Spybot's Tea Timer isn't just for IE, it has registry protection and spyware protection that will protect you whether you use IE or the Fox. I rarely use IE anymore but I still use Spybot and keep Tea Timer active.

    I agree, I use Opera 8/FireFox 1.03, the only thing I use IE for is Windows update.
