Sometimes I use Opera, and I use IE if I have to. I don't like any of the other browsers mentioned except for the World Browser mentioned -- Haven't tried that one.

Anyway I use Firefox and would rather use almost anything else other than IE after experiencing IE7. Might go back to IE6 if I could find a download of it but Firefox working fine for me.

PS anyone remember Mosaic, the grandaddy of em all

I used Mosaic before Netscape released their first Navigator (the 0.9 beta release, if I remember correctly).

Then again, I also remember using Archie and Veronica. Veronica was a rather way to play with gopher sites.

They weren't "browsers" though, at least not in the known sense of the word.

Yea, it was a browser

Information browsers predate HTTP and HTML. Heck, the latter is just an SGML subset, and SGML comes from still earlier technologies.

Archie would not be a "web" browser, tho, no.
