Firefox, 100% of the time. We work with a lot of government agencies/websites, which sometimes force the use of IE, in which case I use IETab to run an instance of IE wrapped in a Firefox tab.

I also use IETab, very convenient for those sites that demand IE. But you are running the IE engine, and as such are subject to all the vulnerabilities of IE, i.e. ActiveX is on, no control over Java execution, etc..

Duh?

I still get to say that I never launch IE, though.

Firefox, exclusively. I don't even have a blue 'e' on my desktop. Have, as others have said, I also use the IEtab rendering option, usually for those sites where the designer/builder has failed the intellect to build for any browser.

And I use scroogle or dogpile for searches, and IMDB search for movie info.

Firefox seems to be the front runner here. Next, IE7. So far no one has said IE8 - which is a good thing :-) In my limited experience with it I was so bamboozled that I returned to IE6.

I know a little bit about Safari, and perhaps this is a dumb question, but is Safari limited to Macs only?

IE8. Really.
Well, someone had to say it.

My MLS only supports IE, and fully supports only through IE7, so I even lose some functionality there, too...
Funny, in IE8 from Microsoft, I cannot print the Microsoft Virtual Earth Maps the MLS offers. "It is a known issue."

I had never heard of "IEtab," so might check that out, too, having become curious about using Firefox.
