    I use Firefox. It's pretty good, more reliable than IE. They won't let me use Firefox at work though *cries*.

    I use Firefox myself.

    I've been using it for years. I don't think I could ever go back to IE. I love you

    I have to put up with IE at work every day and the number of crashes I have to deal with just isn't funny. I had no end of problems with IE at home, too, so I thought I'd give Firefox a try. Once you've downloaded all the plugins (which, to be fair, you have to do with IE, too) there's really no competition. I run Firefox 2 with McAfee Site Advisor as a widget and it's made my PC more secure than it has been in a long time. I only ever switch back to IE if I'm editing our school Online Learning Environment as that was designed to be edited with IE. Apart from that, Firefox rules.

    There's a portable Firefox which you can use from a memory stick, so nothing has to be installed on your PC at all.
