In April I started using Firefox as my main browser, I still do & I became a volunteer contributor (Helps people with problems, No Pay) (I'm in my late teens so ;P ). I switched to Windows 8.1 and love the look of it, and loved Firefox's metro look (And of course they removed it, because they think the devs are more important then users). So I want to use ie11 but because I'm a Firefox contributor I would feel rude....

Hello Daxter,

I'd say go with the browser you like to use. There's nothing wrong with that. :)

You could also use both.

Have more than one browser on your system. I use Firefox and have ie11 as backup with Comodo Dragon lurking unused in the background.

I agree with Shawn. Even if you want to use IE, you can still have Firefox as a backup since, as a contributor, I'm sure you have to keep up with the features etc. There's nothing wrong with having more than one browser on your computer and I'm sure nobody is going to judge you just because you don't use ONLY Firefox. So don't sweat it ;)
