Me? I’m a FireFox user. I was converted about two years ago when I started getting back into hand coding websites with xhtml/css. I was learning quite a bit about browser rendering and standards and compatibility. Up until then, I had thought that the differences between IE and the “other” browsers had to do with the other browsers not being as up to date or as good. Little did I understand at the time that the difference was really that IE was too good to follow the standards put out to make the internet truly multiple platform compatible and render-able(sp?) on multiple types of devices.

Basically, building websites would be easy if everyone followed the same format for rendering the data. Unfortunately, we often have to “work-around” the code to get things to look the same in all browsers. This issue has become more obsolete in recent versions of all browsers, but IE is still the one standing on the corner across the street, waiting for the light to change because they think their light will change first.

But, that’s just my opinion. Are you an IE or FireFox user?

    I am a Firefox and Safari user. I detest IE! I am hearing wonderful things about Firefox 3. Should be a great browser, and will probably become my primary, once I export all my bookmarks from Safari.

    Hmm ive currently have firefox 3 and was wondering about the AntiVirus thing it has on it not sure how useful it is or what its supposed to do because ive already tested it, and it failed to my standers.

    Besides that its better made, its more user friendly
