FF, still haven't been convinced to go back to IE. May give Opera a shot.

Opera 99% of the time, and Firefox when Opera doesn't display a page correctly.  Mostly because Opera is faster and more secure than Firefox.
Same here. In my case, sometimes Forefox gets to be faster than Opera, but that's only when I abuse my computer. Most of the time, Opera works better for me.

If not for the extensions and the eventual incompatibility, I wouldn't use Firefox at all.  8)

Firefox.

It's just the most stable and reliable for me. I've tried Avant, but it was too IE-based and I don't like IE. Opera is pretty good, I have it, but it's just a back-up browser.

The only extension I have with FF is Ad-Block Plus, I don't see the need for a whole bunch of them.

I'm using firefox. although I don't use a lot of its expansion, one of my favorite feature is 'recently closed tab' because I often close a tab accidentally XD

I use Firefox.  I have a number of extensions, some of which I use more often than others.

I've used Opera before (back when it was ad supported). It's pretty good but Firefox fits my needs better at the moment (and I use the method listed in the Geek Guides subforum to deal with the memory problems).

And yeah, I do have many extensions, don't I  :oops:

Well, at least I don't have as many as this guy does:



Now there's a lot of extensions... :shocked:

And then to remember that people switched to FF because IE was taking up to much memory and required to much plugins to do 'anything usefull'... how the times change nothing ;)

I use Firefox and Opera most of the time, but I think mt winner would have to be Firefox.
Nowadays I only use IE when something is not working right with either Firefox or Opera.

IE when an image or something doesn't show up.  I have Opera too but don't know how to download torrents with it. Opera is faster for me and sometimes I can see things that don't show up on FF.  The AA's are misaligned unfortunately on Opera....turned into Eririn-like drawings...

I've been using firefox for years now. It's a decent browser.
It had better pop-up blocker and tabbed browsing when IE6 still didn't had those.

Converted to FF long time ago.. The add-ons are useful and add more functionality. 2nd place is Opera, which I think it\'s faster than Firefox and friendlier to memory .. Use Opera on my old specs xp box at home which has 128MB ram lol..

I use firefox, had some plugins but a lot of times when I get the firefox updates they no longer are compatible with the newer version so I just get lazy trying to check for a newer version. I had the black japan theme for firefox but that too went kaput when the FF 2.0 update came. I use IE scarcely only for certain situations where I can't do something in firefox.
