    i have IE, opera, mozilla and the new firefox.

    i always find myself going back to IE really.

    the people who shout about its security probs are just people who are worried about their own security measures. get a firewall, an anti-virus and ran ad-aware every month and you'll never have troubles. the measures arent just good for IE, but for using a PC in general.

    I don't really care about security in a browser. I just can't stand not having tabbed browsing. IE also seems to have a lag to me.

    I know, I have got so used to using tabbed browsing that I hate using IE as much as it is possible to.

    People used to use it. But I agree, it's been a long time since I've seen anyone use it.

    The point is, running Opera I've never needed anti-virus software or ad-aware etc. I don't have either installed. I have a router/firewall, but then that's to protect from Windows exploits rather than IE ones, generally. I know with Opera I don't have to worry about browsing a dodgy site, since nothing will affect the PC, whatever the site tries. And it's faster, has the option of tabbed browsing, etc.

    The only problem that I have had with opera is that it is a little jumpy/buggy on certain sites.

    Same here. I find that it has become increasingly incompatible now. Firefox is a better alternative I say.

    I rarely find an incompatible site. It must just be good luck on my part

    When I do find one, say once every couple of months, it doesn't work in Firefox either.

    I used a Firefox plugin that allows me to open a page in IE.. which is REALLY useful
