I use firefox and love it. I'm not 100% sure it's really safer, but I'm just use to it now.

Yeah, firefox seems more stable than IE but I like a lot of the functions of IE like the Autofill option specifically. Esp when I am always booking hotels and ordering stuff online. I really don't like using a Microsoft browser for some reason though, it feels wrong.

firefox, and now that google chrome is out and being actively developed and is open source, these two browsers are going to go back and forth at each other. google chrome's memory usage and responsiveness is exactly what firefox needs and will compete against. IE and Safari are going to be left in the dust as the years go by. slowly IE loses their market share.

safari for personal use. I like it better than I.E. or firefox for mac.

default I.E. at work, it's on the machines and they're too locked down to allow anything else to be installed.

doubtful that this is going to damage Safari's use as much as IE. Chrome & Safari both use and contribute to the codebase that comprise the WebKit environment so features that are innovated in one can easily be incorporated into the other.

I use Firefox most of the time because I am use to it. I tried Safari a few times and it doesn't seem bad so I might give it a try some more.

What does tamperdata do?

I use maxthon. It adds needed functions to IE. Last Visited Pages is awsome, mouse gestures help too, and being able to double click a tab instead of needing to click on the x to close it. Try it.
