For me it is either IE or Firefox.

both have their advantages,

for general browsing i tend to use IE cos u click it and boom its there. and for developing stuff i tend to use FF. got some cool plug-ins for it now tongue.gif

think i'l go for IE, i think i am the only IE fan there is. laugh.gif i use both FF and IE but yeah all my favs and stuff are on IE and i tend to use it as my default browser. nice that it saves ur temp files aswell, unlike FF. they can come in handy. the new IE looks promising if it is not already out.

I'm an IE fan too! It does annoy me sometimes, especially when what works in FF doesn't in IE and things like that ohmy.gif

Firefox all the way. If anyone should disagree then you should go ask scott to show you some standards complient sites that are ruined in IE

As for opera there engine isnt that great. Ok its faster and such like but certain site like bank systems will not work in it which is somewhat annoying

If i am not here i am somewhere else

IE for me. simply because its just there - every computer i've used (home & uni, & school when i was at school) has it
when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

It does ma heid in!

Very few browsers pass the Acid 2 Test but the IE developers just thought - Hey, let's make a bastardisation of the web standards so the people can have their coloured scrollbars w00t.gif

Web Designers are usually left crying because they have to code in workarounds for Internet Explorer. There's nothing worse than making a fully standards compliant web-site before realising you have to make about 300 lines of CSS workarounds so that IE can show your page.
