    I would rather just use IE for IE sites and Firefox/Opera for all others.

    It isn;t a problem as there are only very limited amount of sites that require IE. The most popular one would be the chat on this site. And thats only because Flash is F***ed up in Firefox.

    The odd site that didn't work for the missus under earlier versions of Firefox are all ok under Firefox 2.

    Haven't had problems accessing any site with Ibrowse, although I do have to use the spoofing function sometimes.

    Obviously I don't always have full functionality or see the site as intended with Ibrowse.

    How is IBrowse?

    I have used it in WinUAE but would like to use it on a proper Amiga.

    Processes Javascript massively faster since the latest upgrade.
    2.3 was a bind on javascript heavy sites.
    No CSS intil version 3.0 though.

    No CSS, ouch! Not good considering most sites are now constructed mainly using CSS. Classicamiga uses a lot of CSS.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Firefox 1.5.here. Should really update to 2 soon, just not got round to it.

    Use IE6 sometimes, not really got any issues with it but I do miss the FF tabs and TabMixPlus ext.

    Safari on the macs at work. It's.....OK..... does the job and I can't really complain about it. Wouldn't use it out of choice however.

    Opera 9.10 here.

    FireFox was too slow or crashed on my machine.

    IE6 as backup for pages that requires it.

    Nice to see quite a few people using Opera.

    I didn't like it at first (it was really slow for me, despite it being the fastest browser in existence), but I do now.

    Opera is a very nice browser and I've found it the most stable of all current browsers. But for some reason I still use Firefox as my main browser. Not sure why, just like the way it works I suppose. I do tend to also have Opera running at the same time as I find some sites work better in each browser.
