    Opera is indeed the best browser

    I remember the Internet BEFORE browsers. That's when Gopher, Usenet, and FTP were king!

    Understood. It reminded me what may be yet to come for other companies, possibly soon.

    Thought I would put up a pic of IE 1 just for fun, but after poking around on the internet I found this graph of Netscape navigator popularity. I think this graph is incredibly fascinating.

    FireFox here, I use it all the time and hardly ever touch IE8 on windows anymore. It sucks!

    Chrome does some funny stuff and has been known to trip firewall port flood protection on some servers (mine included). I don't recommend it as a primary browser. Personally, I prefer Opera, but have most browsers installed for those times when I need to troubleshoot.

    Firefox for me. On Windows 7 am running the latest Firefox - Minefield 3.7a5pre and it's fine.
    Opera is bloated and very buggy, more so than most browsers IMO.
    Don't trust Chrome. No choice as to where it installs and it DOES phone home far too often.

    I like the WebKit rendering engine best, so I tend to use either Safari or Chrome. I like the extensions of Firefox, but now that Chrome has extensions, I find myself using Firefox less and less. I find Safari 4 to be a very quick browser, but it's quite limited on Windows. At least on Mac OS X you can use some third-party plugins like Saft and 1Password to make it a bit more useful.

    Fire Fox Public R, it has issues, but there few and minor.. It/s fast, skinnable, i find the skins will lag you, and have never found one worth using anyways.. Overall, its the best i have used ..

    Chrome has a nice integrated debugging tool however still not on the same level with Firebug. I personally use Chrome when i am surfing and use Firefox & Chrome during development. Chrome is way faster compared to Firefox and uses less system resources.

    I do like Opera, but the sole reason I'll never use it as my default browser is because it has never - even to this day- correctly rendered a certain piece of code that I wrote years ago. The code is perfectly W3C compliant, works on all other browsers, including as far back as IE5, right up to Chrome's latest, and yet Opera doesn't/won't/can't process it correctly; even in Opera 10.5. That tells me I can't trust it to display my work as I intend it, so even though I use it for testing, it will never be my main choice as long as that piece of code doesn't work.

    Yes, I reported it many times, but nothing has ever been done, which is not only sad but completely baffling.
