    and converted to Mozilla Firefox.

    Was feedup with IE7, it kept continuously producing App Crashes, even though I was running it with no addons. This then brought down my MS Virtual Machine 2007, which started to annoy me :X

    Gotta say, should have moved sooner, everything is so much quicker, what browser do you use?

    Still an IE diehard I'm afraid.

    Have tried Firefox several times and it is installed on my machine but for some reason it just doesn't "do it" for me :ohmy

    They still make the Maxthon browser? Isn't it based off of an old version of IE? Has MS made the IE7 shell available to 3rd-party developers?

    I mainly use IE, occasionally firefox, and now safari on my iphone constantly lol

    Did you have the tabs turned on in IE7 craigie? the reason I ask is that my browser continually crashed as did my mums, turned off tabs function and it fixed it. That said I always use tabs in FF and it rarely crashes

    Been using Firefox since it's birth (and before the Firefox 'brand'). I love how customizable it is. I have lots of great extensions for it to make it even better.

    I love Google Chrome too but until it can use extensions etc I will stick with Firefox.

    I use both IE and firefox (Great for add-ons) about 50/50, surprised Opera hasn't been mention by anyone.

    I did use IE7 for a brief spell soon after it's release, and although it's a HUGE improvement on v6... I'm still a die-hard Firefox user.

    And what ever happened to poor old Netscape. Hard to believe that it was once the dominant web browser. :)

    Yep... actually works well on IE7.. currently running this version of it 2.1.4.443 UNICODE.

    I also run Avant every now and then but most consistently Maxthon

    The edge of maxthon is that I can be able to access all my bookmarks from any other PC that runs maxthon... nice.. like a database that stores all your settings, so long you create a personal account of which you have to log on to and also its security feature where you can lock down your browser without closing the browser in case you want to leave your desk for a while...

    While I'm a die hard Firefox user, I have to say to be fair, that if you do any web design or development, you'll probably want to do your testing at least on IE 6 and 7, Firefox, and Safari. If you *really* want to be safe, you'll throw Opera into the mix.
