Firefox.

With the plugins I use, it replaces Flash objects with a button (no more auto-loading Flash ads! o/), I can block advertisements easily with two clicks of my mouse, and I have virtually zero popups. Only on very rare occasions will a popup manage to pass my popup blocker.

Firefox ftw. o/

Plus I find it very user friendly and comfortable.

I used Firefox for a while but Im using IE now. No problems at all.
With Firefox you have to download plugins for this and plugins for that, it was a pain in the ass.

For all of my general browsing, I use Firefox.

I typically use IE when I'm working with WebCT (Web Course Tools), as it seems to work better with IE than with Firefox for some features (mostly when trying to obtain lecture notes).

Fire Fox, It's just simply teh pwnage of nearly all other browsers these days. Following extensions I also find that come in handy are fasterfox, Adblock, Flashgot, Duplicate Tab, Tab mix plus & Tabbrowser prefrences.

Opera 4 ever :D
There's already a extension for Fire fox that has Opera's side bar, so Opera can lick my 9 =P. There's nothing that I really bothered to look into with Opera, and I don't think i'm going to enjoy adds near my tool bar, especially since i'm on a slow connection.

i thought like you when i used Mozilla FF :-\ till InternetNightmare and Kinzo told me about OPERA... i was negative to it but now i use it and for me its muuch more comfortable then FF... also i got here nice IRc chat and contacts bla bla bla just nice browser...


also what matter what browser you use?
k i care about popups where IE is very weak at but else r fine enough <_< even the worsest.


Also if you wanna remove those ads and side bars n stuff <_< then dont be lazy for removing them by looking above at "view->Toolbars" :]

I've been using Mozilla. I don't really like it, but I've been using it more as a case study then anything else. I recently reformatted and wanted to save myself the aggravation of new spywares. Not that it seems to be helping. I still got a couple.

I don't really get why everyone says its so fast. Sometimes it times out. Sometimes it also takes a long time to load background images depending on things, but that's java related I think. I think all three (Opera, IE, and Firefox) are good enough now that it is a matter of preference then performance.

I primarly use Internet Explorer most of the time. I only use FireFox when I need to download large files since FireFox has a pause and resume feature (which really is not all that great time for time).

Either way, I am not picky of what browser I use even though I have been using Internet Explorer ever since I started using computers.
