Glass or Plastic - pros & cons of each

I have heard glass containers help keep foods fresher longer. Perhaps you Tupperware folks have a different opinion on this.

Ziplok has come out with some glass containers but they have the plastic lids & that is a turn off for me, I would like all glass or all plastic.

I am trying to keep my foods from going bad so quickly in the fridge & am willing to spend some money on containers, but don't really know which is the best route to take.

Problem with plastic containers - even the high end ones, is that when purchasing extras, the lids are a little quirky & there isn't a universal fit & so you are thrashing around for the right lid,.

Glass is quite expensive & of course breakable & don't really know if they are stackable.

What's your take on glass & plastic??
