Speed, security and peace of mind.
Firefox along with add-ons like NoScript, Adblock Plus and Flashblock make it an excellent first line of defense against all the internet trash out there.
I forgot how good I have it with FF until a few days ago while working on an Inspiron Mini. I reformatted it and used the default IE to get all the MS updates and also install anti-virus, firewall, etc. Wow, what a pain in the ass that was especially while using a touchpad. It came loaded with MSN as the default homepage, I was immediately bombarded with ads and popups. The MSN popups basically took over IE.
