I use Firefox, IE or Safari and don't notice much difference between any of them. My Dell laptop I use IE, but most of my surfing is with SWMBO's Mac and that is mostly with Firefox. I find that Safari has problems loading some IE-specific pages.

I used to use Opera about a million years ago - tabbed browsing, who knew? Now I use Firefox and Safari.

tabbed browsing so you don't have to open up more than 1 window, just more than 1 tab inside that window. there are a ton of plug-ins you can download from them to modify your browser for whatever you are interested in.

Also, it's much safer than IE. Less risk of hackers using it to damage you and your system. It is also smaller and faster.

I use IE because I'm technologically challenged, and used Netscape at one time. Netscape was terrible, and I switched to IE in 1999. Now, familiarity keeps me with IE. I'd change if I knew it would be easy and painless.....

I use IE. Too many websites just don't work with other browsers. One thing I've learned about MSFT is that they're like the Borg -- they eventually incorporate whatever is good about the competition. Sure, I'll have to wait a few months for those cool Firefox tabs (and no, I'm not running no f'n beta!), but that's okay. I can wait.
