Firefox for me! I love the window tabs, I use that so often, rather than having 20 sites listed on taskbar.

It is also very user friendly, safer(don't know) and blocks popups too.

IE has updated. It stole Firefox's pop-up blocker and tab method.

Firefox for me. Mine has a very fetching (or slightly silly unsure.gif ) Blue Cat browser theme.

Cheers,
Tony

edit - moved 'blue cat' out of the parentheses.

The paste and go feature in Opera is simply awesome. Saves you some time pressing go.
The speed dial function is great too.

Firefox, I've loved it since the first time I used it.

What are these "mouse gestures" you speak of? blink.gif

What I really can't stand with Firefox and IE is that when a pop-up is blocked a window pops down in the browser window (or whatever you call it) to tell you.

Started using Opera. For some reason Firefox would use up too much CPU cycles.
