    IE for me, but I'm partially doing this to see if I should switch to FireFox

    As I spend most of my times building websites I like to use what most others use so its IE having said that I also have Opera installed on my PC but rarely use it for browsing its more for testing wap sites.

    I've always used Mozilla. Shyed away from Firefox because I liked the full browser/email integration of Mozilla, but I downloaded both Firefox and T-Bird the other day and found that by simply making T-bird the default mail program the mail link in Firefox works as seamlessly as Mozilla.

    Mozilla will fade as Firefox/T-Bird is really the same thing only newer/better... and with people really liking Firefox, I expect the browser wars to begin again soon.

    I use Firefox on my PC, Safari on the Mac. Safari is the best browser I've used so far, its a shame its not for PC, but Firefox is great too. I'd really advise switching to it, Dave. Security risks are huge in IE, and tabbed browsing is so great.

    You could always try something like Maxton which is built on the IE core but expands on security and features.

    I used Opera for a while (excellent integrated email and syndication features), but it had some pretty bad compatability issues. I have used Mozilla ever since.

    I voted for Opera since it's doing what I exactly was looking for. It does not crash and I can't lose what my work when working with it, what happens very often with IE and Firefox.
