    What browser do you use?

    I've heard many different people tell me many different things about many different browsers. I'd like to know which browser you think is best and why.

    [edit]
    Note: I currently use an iBook running Mac OS 9. If anyone knows of a good browser for that system, please let me know.

    Yeah, I know; I downloaded it, but I'm not too happy with it. It seems to be running slower than Netscape Communicator for me; however, Opera claims to be the fastest browser there is. If anyone can explain this indescrepancy, I will be much obliged.

    I use opera mostly, sometimes IE. Opera is nice with the mouse gestures. It is somewhat faster than IE and Netscape, and the popup blocker option is nice. It seems faster most of the time anyway.

    Opera is better, but it waste a lot of memory RAM, and should install the JAVA plug-in (not very easy...), and for eg : there's a composer of the link of the "insert address" didn't appear on the Opera browser. but IE did it. as a conclusion, IE is the better browser.

    Sureeeeeeeeeeeeee.
    I dislike IE, rather I dislike anything that Microsoft makes. That is why I try not to use any of their products. I am currently using XP, but that will soon change!

    I am currently using Opera and Phoenix. I believe those are the best browsers ou there. They have ad killers, and the tabs feature, and they are also quick too.
