    I don't believe this has been done before, so I figured "Why not?"

    Anyways, I use Firefox, and only made the switch to it because Mozilla stopped showing pistures for some reason, but it is still easy to use.
  2. On my pc I use Opera, when using the family pc, Firefox.

    Opera likes to crash on my family pc alot, hence using Firefox.

    Can't recall the last time I got a virus or spyware. I spend multiple hours a day on the internet with an always on cable modem connection.

    Safari, though I have camino installed just in case. I trashed IE months ago, never used it once.

    Yeah, I never get anything bad... I've never even gotten one piece of spam or anything, so I don't know what the big deal is... I HAVE been using Mozilla Firefox 1.0 for a while though, just because it is a lot faster than IE.

    Just switched over to Firefox.

    I´ve tried it two times before but always un-installed it.
    I think I´ll hang on to it this time.

    I still use IE though for certain web pages.

    I´ve never had any spyware/malware issues from browsing though... just wanted to try out Firefox because of the complete control you have over cookies.

    I've used opera for years. I like the tabbed browsing and saved sessions (andnothin is cooler than having the browser app or pc lock up for some reason and have it open up the next time to the page you were on at the time with the foreward and back paths intact). Plus the keyboard shortcuts make things SO much quicker!!!! The only drawbacks have been several sites that don't like the browser (heavy use of IE dependent code) and some occasional trouble with some plugins like quicktime woking. And it's not until I have to use IE again tht I realize how well the built in pop-up blocking works. I've also put Firefox on the home PC for the wife and kids becaue they were used to IE and Opera was too different for them to get used to. It' amazing how seamless that transition was. Took the 3 yr old about 2 days to get used to the different icons for the history and favorites (no kidding, the kid's a freak. He's been more or less self sufficient on the internet since he was 2.5, was typing his own name by 3) I've just gotten so used to oper that I didn't want to or see the need to make the switch.

    IE on XP and Firefox on Linux.

    IE has been very fast and stable for me, but then again I keep my PC clean.

    For me, Firefox keeps my PC clean :smug:
    With IE, it wouldn't stay clean... :meh:
