      I think FF is ok but sometimes the pictures are a bit slow loading up, just my opinion.

      Same here, after years of using the AOL browser(!) I tried Firefox but couldn't get used to it.

      Re: Browsers

      Firefox has been great -- suppressing popups that annoyed me on IE6.

      Everything fine until FF version 2.0.0.2 and since downloading an update. Has now started closing unexpectedly unless I start in Firefox Safe Mode and tick most of the exclusions. The error log suggests something to do with fonts.

      Re: Browsers

      Opera and loving it. Tabbed browsing for years now and I've not had one serious spyware infection since I started using it.

      Occasionally IE6 for those sites that won't work without it. Not FireFox. Just can't get on with it.

      Since I posted this I have changed to Firefox, mainly because I love the almost endless add ons you can get for it.
