The whole Mozilla Pack. (The normal Mozilla, not Firefox)

firefox is the best! i dont see why you wouldn't want to use it. no popups that popup continuasly, and a handy tab. (even though mozilla and opera have that too) the cool thing about opera is that you can just right click and move the mouse right or left and it will go forward or back a page.

Yeah, but Opera is a commercial browser. Even Microsoft hasn't lowered to that level.

I use Internet Explorer. Why would anyone want to use a different one when Windows already comes with one?

Internet Explorer has:

no features like
-popup-blocker
-cookie manager
-password manager
-download manager
a lot of security holes
no skins
intigrated spyware
(I heard in SP2 they have changed a bit at it, but SP2 is the LAST thing I'll install.)

Anyone else wants to go on?

IE is SpyWare, but it's what I use anyway.

IE uses for the "Related Links" Button a service called Alexa. This software stores everything you enter in forms, where you go in the internet, your IPadress and some more things, even if you don't use it.

Mozilla's also so cool cause you can download different extensions for it.

I've just downloaded and installed Mozilla, which I am currently using. It certainly has more features than IE, but the whole Java environment can be a bit annoying. And is it my imagination, or does stuff seem to load faster in Mozilla than in IE?

Anyway possible it loads faster than IE.
