    Around 9 of them and I beta test and used to help in development.

    You missed two others I've used on and off: K-Meleon and Neoplanet.

    I have IE version 3 to 7 for troubleshooting and many others, but I'm most accustomed to using Fx, Opera second choice and then IE 7 wherever its a must.

    I use IE 6, when I have to, FF usually, going to look into Opera though.

    I agree, that to me, IE seems to run a little faster then FF lately, or that could just be me.

    I've used a lot of browsers... netscape, mozilla (still handy for crappy html editing), firefox, opera, IE, konqueror, whatever the one that used to come with gentoo was called... cant remember now.

    I used to love firefox, and I still use it for serious browsing at home but with every update it gets slower and more bloated. Anymore I find myself using Opera because it's both fast to start up, and fast to load pages. My only complaint is that when I'm viewing threads that have lots of images... it tends to go a litle wonky.

    Pretty much anything but IE.... IE 7 is more irritating than the last version, slower and uglier . I can never seem to use IE for more than about 15 minutes without it locking up on me.

    Really any browser in Linux works fine... firefox seems much peppier in ubuntu, konqueror is pretty nice as well. Man this makes me want to switch back!

    "what's iexplore.exe? it's a program that allows you to visit www.opera.com and download a browser after you've just installed Windows"
    Opera only and forever, currently 9.24, 9.5* beta releases still seem a bit buggy for me. However sometimes i still have to get into that freaking IE - some sites that were made by left leg may have troubles with JScript/page layouts/etc in Opera.
    Tried FF sometimes... it's nice, but - for me - not as good as Opera Not talking about that it's way better than IE. Seriously, i hadn't used anything as fast and comfortable as Opera ever. Under windows i mean, my linux expirience isn't rich.

    Tried Opera 9.2 coming from 2 years of Firefox.
    Opening things in a new tab just pissed me off.
    Couldn't break old habits and key gestures.

    Firefox and Opera for me.
    But, mainly Firefox.

    What do you mean?
    Windows 7 + SSD:

    Page File: On (set to the minimum of 16MB if you have a large amount of RAM, disabling not recommended)
    Prefetch: On
    Superfetch: On (RAM is always faster than an SSD - use it)
    System Restore: Off (with regular backups)
    Browser Cache: RAM Only, Disk Cache Off (How to with Chrome)
    Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads to HDD (Public Libraries too, see above link about junctions)

    I normally use FF, however I always made sure to have Opera on all of my computers as well.

    read this carefully newbie

    read this carefully


    There is no need for poll because no browser can beat firefox with plugins attached look here

    Using simple firefox is useless go to add plugins and lots of plugins just install whichever you like

    with plugins
    1.you can block any dam advertisement 100% or view as per your choise
    2. you can block flash advertisements 100%
    3.you can stop autoplay of adverisement or utube autoplaying movies as per your liking
    4. you can keep each site font viewing zoom levels means you can read in big font each site and next time firefox will open it in zoom of your choise
    5.youcan zoom full page also with images
    6. you can hide menu in one dropdoen butten
    7. there is macro button add on by which you can add no of action like go topage bottem go to page top translate page from any langauage which you dont know which one is it to your language autorefresh your choice tabs,auto fill username password etc,tabs in multiple raw etc etc.....
    8.when you go to sleep you can put your computer download on whenever it will be complit firefox will close your computer if there are multiple downloads firefox will wait to complit all
    9.date time in progress bar

    and much much more things are there so dont get misguided by other browser just trim your firefox to your choice and you will say
    oh my god till date i was not knowing this!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Firefox with the No-script and AdBlock plugins.

    Result: I never see an advertisement anywhere more than once.. EVER
    Absolutely No java script will run unless I explicitly give permission. Flash is also blocked unless I specifically allow it.

    Just blocking adverts and tracking sites improves Firefox performance by a very noticeable amount.

    Blocking ads and tracking would improve the performance of any browser, but it can be a pain constantly updating your hosts file. Firefox plugins make it painless and simple.

    Should a site not render properly in Firefox because it fails to meet W3C standards then there is an IE tab plugin which will allow the page to be rendered under Firefox using the m$ rendering engine.

    Can you share the source of those plug-ins?

    Adblock Plus:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

    NoScript:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722

    Flashblock:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433

    Of those 3, the only one I use is Adblock Plus. It's enough for me; the rest seems a bit overboard.

    Oh yes, and IEtab, a really great extension for FF.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419

    Here's another one I use, Paste and go. Paste and go was one of the things I really missed when i switched from opera to FF.

    FireFox since 2004.

    However, it has been crashing lately with some add ons that are pretty popular like Foxforecast, Download Status Bar, and my favorite Theme: Qute.

    The Browser erases the saved settings/preferences, and I have to reload my Bookmarks. Been a headache lately.
