    It's Opera for me, and always has been, IE is useless in comparison :D

    FF for me, it's just more convenient and faster than IE. I have tried Opera and it's nice, but I'm used to FF now.

    Am a web developer so it's both, even at home. But Firefox is my preference.

    Anything other than IEx

    They really need to just get a standards guru in at Microsoft who looks like a complete brute so people will take attention when he shouts "No. ****ing. SPECIAL EFFECTS".

    Opera at home and FF at work. Would be Opera all the time if i had the ambition to battle the "computer guy" at work (He's NOT an IT professional).

    I did run into a site the other day that won't work with the most current version of opera, only version 6 or earlier :eyebrow:

    Iv just switched over to firefox and i must say im very impressed. It wasnt as good as this before...but its quite sleek and sexy now with the right skin and the addons make it really good.

    Adblocker, Fasterfox are good :) Also no script although its too aggressive.

    To all those complaining that work doesn't let them use FF, have you tried using it in its portable apps version? Have to say that it's a life save both at work and Uni.

    Come on guys you used a nice "complex" word like vulpine and then couple it with burny :( Couldn't you have used flammable, inflammable or combustible instead?

    But I *like* the word 'burny'. Almost as much as 'burnination', which I'm still hoping will get included in the next revision of the OED.

    Plus, why does 'flammable' mean the same as 'inflammable'? I mean, that's an accident waiting to happen.

    Burny is good :) inflammable actually means flammable according to the Oxford paperback dictionary, thesaurus and wordpower guide. There is even a little box telling you not to get confused! That is probably about the 5th time I have used that dictionary since school gave it to me 4.5 years ago. I have to say, until I looked it up I thought inflammable was "not flammable"

    Anyway, nice to see FF doing well, I couldn't do with out it, with all me extensions and bookmarklets (handy for getting round web filters;))
