Internet Explorer

So who uses Internet Explorer? It sucks so bad... Mine is Uber slow and freezes up every 10 mins when I do use it but I have been using FireFox for like 6 months, it's the best thing ever.

I use Firefox at home and IE at work. We recently upgraded to IE 8 and it seems to work nicely. IE 5 would get hung up on some sites, but IE 8 cruises through the download.

BTW, if you want to really fly on the internet, run Firefox with a LINUX OS.

My newest PC can't even run IE natively - it's 64 bit Gentoo. So Firefox is the way to go.

I use Opera (on Linux), and like it better than Firefox.

I have never used Opera before. I have Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari But I only ever use Firefox unless I'm trying to download music, in which I use Internet Explorer...

Hello -

I mostly use Firefox, but the 3.x version seems to be getting "feature heavy" these days, if you know what I mean. Still on IE 6 for other stuff.

Every browser I've ever used eventually got bloated with stuff I didn't use or need.

So I use Lynx with an ASCII art plugin for images :P

I use firefox for the extensions but prefer chrome and safari for straight up browsing.
