Firefox and Safari, gave up using IE many moons ago. The new Chrome looks interesting but haven't tried it out yet.

I use Firefox at work most of the time, with some MSIE use.

At home I use Firefox on Windows, OS/2, and Linux, and Opera now and then.

I also use Links (not Lynx) on some of the Solaris servers here at work, and also sometimes at an OS/2 fullscreen command prompt.

I will sometimes also use Seamonkey, mainly under Puppy Linux (one of the LiveCDs I like comes with Seamonkey instead of Firefox, which provides the entire Mozilla-based suite instead of just the browser).

IE, I have Firefox but something about the colors gives me a headache. I know, I'm weird, but I have vision problems, and I go with what works best for me. I used to use Netscape from the time it was Navigator through Communicator, until they improved the email client away, and had to switch. There are a very few things that need FF, so I use it for them - IE 99.9+% of the time.

Um, there's no colors on my FF except the blue bar across the top. Really except there refresh and back, there are no other colors.

I'd get a bigger headache from the security holes in IE taking over my PC...

Opera 10 beta right now. Mostly Chrome lately, and a little Safari. I used to use Opera exclusively, and am probably going back to it for good.

FF is good for adblock but I'm not too big on it otherwise.

You don't get colors in websites? My FF is set to exactly the same defaults as my IE, but it just doesn't work out for me. Cross your fingers and hope you never have to make that kind of choice for the same kind of reason.

I've never had a problem with security issues, viruses, etc. Closest thing to it was a virus AVG walled off in an internet temp file - once I changed the settings to delete all temp files when I shut the computer down, that was that - no more problems.

Oh I thought you meant the colors on the actual FF, haha. I don't see how the colors would be any different no matter what browser, but meh...

I used to use Maxthon for several years but I ran into some problems with it late last year and switched to FireFox.
