    Favorite Browser?

    I've been ........ed with IE alot and decided to switch. I've tried mozilla and other browsers, but found MyIE2 was what I needed.

    www.myie2.com

    Very customizeable and such. More secure, etc. One of my friend's was a hard-core anti-IE and pro-Mozilla and then I showed him MyIE2. Everyone I've showed it to so far has switched (and not gone back since).

    I haven't been able to find any features that I miss from IE/Mozilla yet. What browsers do you prefer and why?

    I use Mozilla in Fedora and IE in winXP. Both seem to provide all the functionality I need. At the moment I am excited about linux so I tend to prefer Mozilla.

    I use IE. Works well enough for me - I don't need any whistles and bells.

    I normally use IE for all my internet needs.

    However, there are cases when IE really sucks. Any time I try and log on to the ftp of a certain site I am the designer of, IE goes crazy and doesnt know what to do. So in that case I use Opera, CuteFTP, or DOS for ftp'ing into that site. Normally IE will work fine for FTP however.

    Opera is my secondary web browser. So far, if IE has failed me on anything, I just switch to Opera and it works great. It is a good web browser.

    Netscape is what I once used, and I used to find it quite good. I think it has gone downhill, however, recently. Just a couple months ago I downloaded the latest version of Netscape, and it seemed to be the SLOWEST web browser I had ever used. Which is odd because older versions used to be much faster than IE, but the newest version was incredibly slow.

    Mozilla is a great web browser. I use it in the Computer Science labs, but dont actually have it on my own computer. It works quite well and so far hasnt failed me on anything.

    Opera, hands down. The functionality is unsurpassed by any other browser I've used (although some say Firebird is nice too... I haven't tried that one).

    Mozilla Firebird

    Not too cluttered, I like using tabs, and it is open source.

    Internet Explorer. It works great, I don't have to worry about third-party plug-ins not working, and nearly all pages are pretty much guarunteed to work with IE.

    Opera has the same functionality as MyIE2. I think Opera's interface looks nicer, so I'll stick with it.

    Still using Mozilla. I was always a diehard IE man, but this version of Mozilla is v good.

    Yet I STILL REALLY miss the little click that IE makes when you click a link. Just the small touches...
    Such is life.

    Opera's free. You've got a small ad banner, but I hardly even notice it.
