How many use Internet Explorer? If so what version? I use SLim Browser, which is a IE clone. I used to use Opera which I also liked.

Any other good ones out there?

I go back and forth between IE and Mozilla Firefox. I usually use MF first but if I have any problems I switch to IE. I usually have more problems with IE that is why I switched to MF. I rarely use IE anymore, but the online school I was attending I HAD to use IE.

firefox!!
the only time i use IE is when i come across a site whose video or downloads won't work with firefox. opera is cool, but not quite up to firefox, imo. netscape, not as good as firefox. if i were to rank those...

1- firefox
2- opera
3- netscape
4- IE

that's probably 95% of the browser market right there.

I used to use netscape, but switched to Firefox a few years ago. I've found it to be the best and is the only one I use now.

I didn't like it at first but after I got used to it I don't like IE. It never crashes on me. It has a tool bar you can put your most visited links on which I like - don't know why.... Little things make me happy I guess. :D

i'll check out slim browser.

firefox rules for folks who have multiple oages open at the same time. sometimes i have as many as 20 open. in IE, the multiple windows stack up and are hard to identify after more than 5.

I always did use IE, but this computer came equipped with Safari so that is what I now have available. There is little memory on this computer so I don't bring much on here that will take up more space.

I loved IE when I had it.

I used to swear by Netscape until they were purchased by Amateurs On Line. I try to avoid giving them or their mother company any type of support. I have found IE (I use v6) to be the best all around provided I keep up with updates and get every plug-in in the world. It is almost always compatible with whatever website I am visiting (99.9% of the time).
