I prefer mozilla firefox over internet explorer. Its tabbed browsing feature is great. and you can use a lot of extensions with it to improve your browsing experience.

I recently came across an online comparison of browsers (I'll post the link if I can find it again). Firefox was the one of the slowest browsers, Opera being the faster one.

However, I would still vote for Firefox since it comes as an excellent package with lot of flexibility to add on required features. Firefox rules for me!

Fast or slow, important thing is to use web browser that suits your browsing style.

Precisely! That's sole reason why I am sticking with Firefox, though I occasionally do flirt with alternate browsers.

Sorry to revive an old thread but...

The latest version of Opera 9.10 simply rocks!

Have a try & you'll probably like it....

Its a general NO to IE. I am a unix lover, always used Mozilla stuff, firefox for browser and thunderbird for mails. Have started trying galeon on my Fedora, looks good.
