check out google's new browser, Chrome. I have been using Mozilla. I tried using Safari, but wasn't really happy with it. I downloaded Chrome but haven't used it yet. There is a lot of buzz about it though!

I use Firefox and Opera. Opera has a zoom feature that I really like.

Definitely read the user agreement for Chrome before using it.

FireFox. I have IE but rarely use it. If I need IE, I just use IE Tabs (add on) on FF.

I use mostly Firefox, but there are a few sites I got to that require IE (blech). It also depends on which computer I'm on. On the Mac Pro I usually use Opera. On the desktop, Firefox.

I mostly use firefox, but for some reason MDC doesn't work on it for me. I end up using explorer for MDC and any other sites that don't work on firefox.

I'd delete it and reinstall. Sounds bugged.

Same thing for anyone that is having problems on MDC with it. Mine works great here

Firefox. When I was on a PC, I was using Opera, but Opera has not kept up with the technology, and at this point there are so many sites that don't work on it that I was constantly switching.

Not terribly fond of Safari, but it's better than IE.

Definitely Firefox. I love it and can't imagine using anything else.

Not to say I haven't tried though. I hate IE and I've also tried Safari and Opera. Neither of them work as well as FF.

Another firefox. I actually like IE better :, but it started crashing everytime I tried to load a google search page and, well, google is right up there with water and air to me.
