    Which browser?

    I was just wondering which browser everyone is currently using?

    I just finally upgraded Firefox from 1.5 to 2.0 and it seems a bit quicker and most of the extensions I had installed for 1.5 made the transition intact. The couple that didn't were mainly due to Firefox 2 having similar features now built in, such as the spellchecker.

    Well, I'm not changing from Opera any time soon. Perfectly happy with it.

    I do also use Opera a lot, but my main browser is still Firefox. Personally I cannot actually tell that much difference between them any longer as both seem to render pages and work just as well for most tasks.

    Each has it's own unique ways of doing things so it is just down to which you prefer. For example I prefer the auto complete login method of FF over Operas Xtrl+Enter method, and I love the new Spellchecker built into FF. However, I do prefer the page scaling feature in Opera over all other browsers method of just enlarging the text on a page and buggering up the layout.

    As for IE7, I hate it with a passion that surpasses even LowercaseE's hatred of Sony!

    Opera currently. I also use FireFox 1.5.

    Both are good.

    Occaisionally use IE if the page I want to view doesn't work in firefox or opera.

    I am yet to try IE7, but from what I've heard, it sounds crap.

    Firefox 2.0 here. It's fast and it works. The only issue I used to have was it crashing when I went into my Yahoo mail, but I found out how to fix that and now it works fine.

    Did you know that there is an add-on for Firefox that lets you tell Firefox to render pages using the IE render engine instead of Firefox's if you have a site that isn't designed well and won't work correctly? It's called IETab.

    I think there's now just one site I regularly use that doesn't work in Firefox.

    The only one I use regularly that complains about Firefox being an Unsupported Browser is my online banking site. You can still just click "Go to log on" though and it does work perfectly in Firefox.
