Default Which Browser do you prefer?

Ok, after a tonne of problems with IE, I've stopped using it and swithched to Netscape.

Which got me to wondering, which browser do most of you prefer to use and why?

Depends...

On my Apple computer I use Safari by preferences but will sometimes use Firefox or Camino too. Sometimes I have to because Safari is incerdibly fast but misses out on some functionality I sometimes need.

On the Windows PC's and laptop I use either Firefox, Opera or Internet Explorer, with a slight preference for the first mentioned one.

I am a web developer and designer, so I need all browsers for testing. I don't like Netscape as a browser very much but some of that could be hereditary/historically explained.

Firefox. Once I switched from IE, I could never go back! It is much faster, and the tab function is soooooooooo useful for forums!

I recently moved to Firefox. It runs smoothly and takes less time to load than IE.

I chose netscape but am currently using IE because that's the only thing Dad has on this laptop - I /hate/ IE the tabs function is extremely useful in both firefox and netscape - I have been using Netscape for the last year or so, becuase Dad didn't have Firefox, but he's planning on installing it soon - I hope!

I already said I use Firefox

But occasionally some sites don't work properly in it In which case I use Avant Browser, which is a freeware add-on to IE which allows you to have the practical things such as tabbed Windows etc

Firefox by preference, but I also use standard Mozilla (netscape freeware) and IE when I have no other option, such as some java game sites. On my old HD I also had Opera, my first non-IE browser if you don't count Netscape 3 in the early 1990s.
