    So...nothing different if you're a windows user? :/
    Well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, I suppose.

    Firefox is mediocre. Internet Explorer 7 is the best.

    IE 7 isn't released yet, and to be honest, theres no way I'm using a Beta of a product from Microdaft that connects to the internet. I value the security of my computer higher, thankyou very much.

    I doubt I'll ever return to IE now that I've discovered FireFox. Even when IE7 goes out of beta with tabbed browsing.

    I stay away from both Firefox and IE. Use Opera instead. I don't like Firefox's interface, looks ugly if you ask me and it takes longer to startup then Opera.

    Opera's way too cluttered and loaded with useless features. FireFox is excellent with its extensions system.

    I use Firefox but I downloaded Opera last week and I think I like it more but I haven't really started using it properly yet.

    Yeah, despite how I have Firefox no my computer I still use Opera primarily. Though I've been using Windows & Firefox a lot recently due to me having to my database for Computing coursework in MS Access.

    Does Opera still have ads up in the corner? I would have stayed with it if it werent for those. FF for me, IE i'm not a great fan of, hardly ever seemed to work downloading from ftp's etc.

    As of September 20th 2005, Opera for Desktop (version 8.5+) is free. No banner ads nor Google ads are included, and thus there is no need to register Opera for Desktop platforms. However, Opera for Mobile still needs to be purchased.
