I would prefer to use Firefox, but I have memory leak and it was worse with Firefox. So I now have all my bookmarks loaded in IE and have gotten used to it. I have problems with IE, which I cannot resolve even by re-installing, but I just switch to Firefox for those problem applications. Specirically, some (but not all) file sources refuse to load into MediaPlayer, which started happening all of a sudden.

What version of FF do you have? I recently had problems seeing video, and had to reload Flash as well as getting back my volume icon. So far, so good.

I think Ver3 is a better than Ver2, loads faster and is supposed to have plugged some memory leaks.

Firefox almost exclusively. I use IE to keep familiar with it since I have to provide tech support to offices that still use it but that is about it.

Firefox is king!

It's gotten to where I'd almost rather stay off the Internet than use IE.

IE7 is all I use.
Our Multi-List Service will not support anything else.
And now MS is pressing me to download IE8.

I guess I need to press the MLS folks.

If it was king would that not mean it's the most used browser? Unless you have some doctored stats that is not the case.
