Right now, I'm using opera. Opera is not very user friendly, but once you get used to this, it's very handy!

My brother uses Mozilla Firefox, which has more add-ons and more user friendly. The remaining Internet Exploler is reserved for my dad, but he don't care about other browser. So there is total 3 browser in one computer. Which one of these three you think is the best? Or what are you using right now?

Personaly Firefox. I dont mind Opera as there SOME STUFF that mozilla cant do... no wait... *downloads addons* guess not... no wait *downloads more* my mistake firefox can do stuff opera cant...

Oh well... i still respect opera. but i dont use it often... ive got opera on a 2nd computer (desktop) wich i generaly use for gameplay and high work. But for my laptop/Tablet PC (my main use even at home... love the baterry freedome) i stick with Firefox since i found some small add ons for my Pen.

in reality there isnt... just check it and juge by yourself

There isn't one single browser that I'd like to say is 'the best'. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses. That's why I have Firefox, Opera and IE installed on my PC.

Personally, I use Mozilla Firefox, it's main design was for security and user friendliness. Internet Explorer has a lot of glitches and problems. Opera I don't know anything about XD (never used it before)

I use Mozilla Firefox and Opera. Microsoft Internet Explorer, only for Windows Update.

Each has its uses Opera is the fastest, stables and most standard compliant. Firefox is easily the most flexible and IE well just sucks.

i'm now using firefox 2.0 on a MAC.. the thing I find annoying bout it is that it has a close button on every tab.. If you're using a laptop's trackpad, you may sometimes close the tab... and the undo close tab only works when the page is fully loaded...But I still like it over opera and IE...

I'm using Firefox and I'm really satisfied with it. I used to have IE, but after trying Firefox, I realized it's much more safer...
Anyway, I'm planning to use it in the future too...

i've installed IE,Firefox and Opera and i like firefox better. recently i've changed the browser from firefox to lolifox. it's basicly a modified firefox with a nice skin for the anime community. you should try it out, if you're using firefox http://lolifox.com/

Well ATM iam using IE6 cuz I think IE7 lacks a user friendly navigation. Tough I have just Firefox in the past I quikely switch back to IE6 because it is in my opinion more user friendly.
But seeing that IE7 will be used in Vista Il have no choice to switch back to the new FireFox2 I guess

Also Opera has its own inbuilt torrent downloader, so instead of using another client such as utorrent or bittorrent or w/e you can do it through the browser itself. Not sure how well it works or how much extra cpu it chews through but its a nice idea, although i prefer to use an actual torrent program rather than an addon for a browser, but i'd guess it'd be good for more of the people who are clueless about the whole thing

Bundling a torrent client is fine for people who use torrent rarely, but for anything else its a bad idea. First it wastes memory, second its not going to as flexible as an external application.

Firefox is much better compared to IE6. My only complaint is that on some occasions Firefox seems to eat up lots of ram.

Actually, I'm using the same browsers as you are, man...

But here's how I use it:
IE To view general pages like online communities and websites which uses heavy Javascript context
Mozilla Firefox My favourite. User-friendly and I use it most of the time ^^
Opera To download stuff safetly. I don't usually use this but it's a great browser

Back in the day when Opera was new, it was advertised as the fastest browser. So my friend and I tested both Opera and Mozilla (that's the original Mozilla, not Firefox). Guess what? While both were faster than IE, Mozilla was actually faster than Opera. So I used Mozilla for years, until Firefox came out with its neat "Live Bookmarks". This is the main reason I like Firefox the best, along with the amazing amount and quality of add-ons for it.

Also, Firefox 1.x was the best..the new Firefox has too many unwanted changes that can't be undone. >_<
