I'm using SlimBrowser. It has tabbed windows, and I can group my favorite pages so they open with just one click. I love it!

Uhhhh, I use Netscape. I have Opera also, but I don't use it that much and I've stopped using IE only because it always has ads pop up every time I open it.

I think it is great that Netscape isn't even listed in the poll. As a web designer I loath NN 4.x though Netscape 6 isn't so bad.

I use IE6 for most things cos it's easy to use and OS integrated. But I use Mozilla for things like CapitalFm's site cos it's intensive and IE seems to take forever to render the page. Also for some reason IE makes all the text huge unless it's formatted which is annoying (does anyone know how to change it back?? - it's messsing up the look of so many sites)

That mousewheel thing is great - thanks. That's probably how I messed it up before a stray Ctrl holding - i do that all the time.

The opera mouse controls are the greatest! If only i could integrate them into browsing my computer... IE is definately the worst, followed by netscape. IE has no protection against pop-ups making it incredibly difficult when browsing some sites. netscape doesn't either but it has skins, which is nice. Opera has all that PLUS you can move the back/forward/home buttons anywhere you like. It's just so beautiful.....

No sig here folks.

opera. ie when opera wont open something (very rare occurence.)

i dont see the need to install a popup blocker, ad blocker, feature thingy (like my ie 2) when i can have all that kinda stuff in opera.
the banner doesnt bother me.

Mozilla is da king! Meanwhile, I will use Opera and Konqueor as well when I'm running Linux; and there will be the occasional irritating occasion when I'll have to use IE 6 because of the sites using propietary code.
