Firefox with AdBlock Plus and NoScript is the best way to browse the net virtually ad and spam free!

I've gone on sites that I routinely visit on my friend's pc and was amazed at how many ads and spam was on the site! I don't see any of it on my pc. I'm amazed at how many news sites have pop-ups. I don't see any of those thanks to NoScript (flash/javascript blocker). Adblock Plus blocks mostly images and most commercial ads on video sites.

Highly recommended

I was actually an early adopter of Firefox, switching to it from IE when it was still called "Firebird", mainly for the tabbed browsing capability (important on the dial-up connection I suffered with at the time, as well as satellite connections) and the fact that I was mostly using Linux at the time.
I've been using Opera for the last seven or eight years. It had tabbed browsing YEARS before IE and Firefox. It's fast I love the interface and it does everything that I need. I have some business related stuff I use IE for but that's it.

FF5 Sidepost: Why can't I put to capital F's together, like IE? The second F turns into a small f if I start the sentence with the two FFs.

Here I use Seamonkey 2.0, which is basically the successor to the Netscape Communicator Suite and the Mozilla Application Suite. I like having my web browser and E-mail client all rolled up in one app.
