Just curious. I'm an Opera person myself. I had to lump together some browsers for space.

I'm Firefox all the way. I started using it as my main browser once it went 1.0. Due to the extension framework and the customizable nature of the browser I'm afraid I'll be hard pressed to find another browser that allows me to do everything that I can in Firefox.

Opera!
I can't see why people don't use it more. I mean, it's secure, fast, free and skinnable!
If you havent already, please give it a try though.

On OS X, I use Safari (my favorite browser overall).
On Windows, I use IE 7.
On Linux, I use Opera.

I don't like Firefox; I think it's an overrated fad.

I started using Firefox about 2 years ago - I downloaded it as there was a lot of talk about how good it was, so I was curious to see what all the fuss was about (it was not long after it had gone to version 1.0, I think). I set it as my default browser on the same day and now I can't live without tabs, the search bar and Adblock (my 3 top Firefox features).

I would consider IE7 once it's out (IE6 is horrible, and I tend to keep beta software away from my main machine and in virtual machines only), although I do like Adblock, as well as the infinitely customisable nature of Firefox with the extensions and themes system, and the way you can do whatever you want to the interface by editing the chrome files. The only things about it that I don't like are the memory usage (although with 1 GB of RAM I don't actually notice it) and the length of time it takes to load the first time after a reboot.

I tested many of the browsers out. FF is still my favorite. Netscape had many useful features but more than I need and it is a resource hog, netscape would not release the used ram when closed. If netscape would release a lite version...
Is there a liter version of netscape?

yes. but it can be moved back to the top with a registry tweak, but that also brings up the links bar

How can the menu bar be in an awkward position? It's easily accessible. If it's different than you're used to, that doesn't mean it's awkward.

I used to use Firefox; I don't anymore because it's become too popular. I do recommend it to other people along with Opera, though.

On OS X, I use Camino almost exclusively, because it's stable and doesn't clash with anything else. Now that it has single-window mode, it's absolutely the best browser for OSX, IMO.

On Linux, I generally stick with Konqueror and Opera. Konqueror is integrated into KDE really well, and Opera has all of the features and themes I need.

On Windows, I use K-Meleon and Opera. K-Meleon is nice for compatibility purposes, and it's pretty fast. Opera, same as above.

Well it is if for every other aplication the menu bar is at the top of the window, and for IE you have to keep going 1/4 of the way down the screen, its gonna get to be pain in the a*se for poeple who arnt used to change

But lets drop this subject or else we'll spoil the thread lol

But it's not a fourth of the way down, and the point is that you aren't supposed to use the menu bar in IE7. It's got buttons to take care of anything you can do in the menu bar, or if you do need it, then you press Alt to show or hide it. I really like that setup.

And I don't see how talking about a browser will ruin a browser thread.

Firefox is the best... especially RC1. I love the spell checking, and especially the new design.
