Firefox for Windows v3.6.17 on most of my PCs and laptops. On the rare occasion I have to use IE, it's version 7. I hate IE8 and have not yet tried IE9. Firefox does everything I need, and more - without all the security holes in IE.

My Internet Explorer Icon I forgot the location for long.
I used to favor Firefox but turn to Google Chrome when it first available.
Later I use Chromeplus that with other 3rd party add-on more faster and user-friendly. It also could combine IE tab for those old web causing trouble for not surf with IE.

Internet Explorer still opens and loads the home page faster than Firefox or Opera.
I can click Firefox, then click Opera, then click IE. IE is first open, Opera second, Firefox third. I use all three, some pages render better on IE, some of Firefox, and some on Opera.

I used to use Mozilla, but then I found Chrome. I use IE8 as my option for most IE only websites still, since some plugins that render web pages with an IE Engine for Chrome (or Firefox) usually don't load for me. But yes, Chrome. <3

I use 3-4 browsers. I view these as Internet wrenches. Just like those on my workbench, I have yet to find one that works well in all situations. I prefer Firefox but have found them to slowly be drifting towards bloatware. Chrome seems to be lite and quick and I am slowly getting use to its UI. Opera is a backup that I am using more and more. And I then use IE if everything else refuses to work and the site is IE specific. If this is the case, I will tend to avoid that site.

Firefox for now but Mac's are coming for Christmas. Dell forced me to look elsewhere. Think Safari is a Mac thing. After all... Change is good, right?

Chrome almost exclusively now. Compared to Mozilla Firefox and others, it beats them in terms of speed.

For PC its now Chrome, def blows the doors off Firefox. But FF 4.0 is out in beta and due for full release soon. Looks like FF will become competitive again once 4.0 is released.

For cellphone its either Opera mini or the superb native browser in WebOS. I haven't tried the Skyfire browser yet but the buzz is it also is superb.

If they don't work in FireFox, there is an addon for IE Rendering.

calwdstk, I used to come across a some websites that didn't work with Firefox, but that was a few years ago. Everything seems to work okay now. I can't remember when I got my last dud website.

Only time I use IE is if a site refuses to work under Firefox, even when
using the IE-Plus extension with it.

Running Opera snapshot (beta) 10.70.9964 right now. More buggy than most of their snapshots, but it's always iffy running on the betas no matter who puts them out.

Depends. Sometimes Internet Explorer, a lot of times Mozilla Firefox, but as of yesterday I've been trying Google's Chrome and I like it so far.
