Re: Which Browser do you use?

I LOVE FIREFOX!!! I can't live with out it. I personally hate Internet Explorer. I have window's vista which, keeps cutting off IE for some reason.

I use Avant Browser, very user friendly and a good forum for help and advice.
Seldom get bothered with popups etc, and a good clearing out tool.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

I installed Opera today and it is fabulous. Similar, but oh so different, to Mozilla. Not as hungry either.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

I used firefox all the way back to when it was Phoenix 0.1 but have been using Opera on my Linux systems over the last year as it has a smaller size and includes email right in the browser thus I have only one small program to keep updated. They don't seem to have as many problems as IE and Firefox. I do miss some of the FF extensions though, it is a good browser with 3.0 coming soon. Opera used to have ads but now is free and handles IE sites without problems. Works on MS and Linux, I don't know if it is on Mac I just use safari.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

Seamonkey...It runs on the mozilla engine and is from the folks at mozilla.org. It works a lot like Firefox and those who use netscape will find it familiar because of the mozilla engine and mail client. There are lots of plugins for it but I find it has a problem reading web pages in .MHT format. I'm sure there is a plugin for it out there, just havent found one yet.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

I've been using Firefox since it was known as Phoenix and have been very happy with the steady rate of upgrades and added functionality.

I maintain a number of web sites and Firefox is my browser of choice when testing as it does a very good job of adhering to web standards, unlike it's more widely distributed competitor from the sea slugs of Seattle.

The only time I resort to using IE is when I have to visit the Microsoft web site because Microsoft pulls out all the stops in making their site an IE-only site.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

I use Safari 2.0 here at work.

Normally use Firefox at home. Not sure which version.

Re: Which Browser do you use?

Well, it appears that Firefox is the preferred browser among those answering this poll. The sampling method may be a bit biased as most of the people visiting the Computers/Technology forum are likely to be more computer savvy than most other WC members, but so what?

With the results pretty clear, I think that this thread can be closed now. Let's let the more recent threads stay at the top rather than being bumped by this thread all the time.
