Default Which web browser do you use?

This'll probably get a vote for the 'first software thread ever' title, but it's quite relevent.

I've been wondering which browser most people use these days, as I often hear a great amount of bitching over the subject on more elitiest forums, so I wondered what the actual digital population finds most comftable with their needs.

Personally I use Opera for the donkey work of my iinterweebz surfing. I find it very quick to use, probably because it's not bogged down with all these pretty widgets used by other browsers such as Mozilla or IE. It's simple, pretty, fast to load and has a beautiful 'speed dial' feature which negates me having to search through my bookmarks each time I want to jump to Heresy or Wurm Online. Sadly, being a Geek that I am, I mix my use between four browsers. Mozilla for compatability (Don't try looking at articles on the new GW site with Opera!) IE for official updates, though I avoid it as much as possible, and the BT browser for email and old bookmarks.

And you? If you have any questions about browsers, simply ask

In general I stick with mozzilla. Except when I boot my linux OS which I then use Ice weasel.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

Firefox for me too. I have used most of them at one time or another, I don't like IE, and some of the others have compatibility problems when you bump in to a site with lazy programmers.

I tend to use Firefox.

Not through choice though, my Internet Explorer has a habit of attracting the google redirect virus. It's a real pain in the arse so I figured i'd give Firefox 3 a try. I'm really impressed with it so far.

Another browser i'm fond of is Safari. Simple fast and it has a way of making text on websites far easier on the eye.

Opera. Firefox I hear is better, but only if you take the time to mod it with all those apps, and to be honest...I just can't be bothered. Opera seems more streamlined then firefox anyway (I have both on here at the moment) and now it has all my bookmarks on...well...there's no going back!

Firefox 3 with the Stumbleupon app. i used IE, but then for some reason my computer just decided it didn't want to use it. no idea why.
