    Poor IE6. Look at that tiny bar.
    Real programmers use FF
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Even in the old days?

    EDIT - I voted IE7 cause that's what I was using when I made the poll. I normally use FF though.

    > Opra
    I though Opra was a talk-show host.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    FF, apart from those drain-bammaged banking sites which force you to use IE because it's more "secure".

    I think windows update also makes you use IE to update ... in my experience anyways.

    Opera for everything...occassionally IE for things that don't meet standards...but Opera does pretty well on 90% of the sites I go to (including the bank).

    You can always just grab IE Tab.

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.

    Nah... FF has a pluggin that allows you to use the IE engine within FF. And you want to know what's best?... it's per tab basis. So you can have a tab displaying a MS IE only website with the IE engine and others tabs rendering with FF engine.

    Check the FF plugins

    EDIT SirCrono beat me to it
