    I use FireFox mostly, as I never have much problems.
    IE always shuts down unexpectedly.

    Plus, with Firefox you can skin it and customize it with different add-ons [​IMG]

    Firefox or Opera or IE. Those are the big 3, and you piss people off when you forget about the best one out of them.

    Firefox and opera are equally good. And IE just sucks bad.

    Opera's nice too. And it's my secondary browser when I'm not using firefox. Firefox 2 is quite laggy compared to Opera.
    But with the latest beta for firefox things have sped up quite a bit.

    You should've made opera a choice, it is a very popular browser.

    Agreed. Opera should have been on here. I use Firefox, but only because it fits my computer so well with its custom skins and such. Opera will be my new browser if the next FF release doesn't pick up the pace. FF2 is rather laggy. =_=;;

    See that hole in your wall?
    I use Firefox on Windows and Linux. Opera Mobile on Windows Mobile.
    IE sucks on anything and everything. You could install IE on a wombat and it would still be the most useless part of the wombat.

    I actually had a co-worker (who thinks he is all that with computers) tell me that he wouldn't want to switch from IE because 'he likes the tabs'. I really don't like ignorance.

    I really don't want to sound like some anti-MS loser who thinks open source is the way of the future (like hell is certainly is NOT), but boy IE is so terribly built and set out compared to firefox. Hmm, I've never tried opera though.

    People who says that IE sucks, can you give me just one reason why it does? I'm using IE all the time and it's just fine. Honestly, Firefox eats a lot of ram and it has compatibility issues. Firefox just doesn't add much to the IE at this point. It used to back in the IE6 days but IE7 is performing pretty good.

    Well, it never lags for me.. If there's a problem with your computer, don't blame IE for that.

    IE has many security holes, and is slower than Opera. If you like fast things, go for Opera. Much more screen space for the functionality than IE.
