My favorite, IE5.5 is missing from your list. Also, Maxthon is hardly a browser, more like IE with skin support.

IE8-Test for Quick/Full-Edit:

Quick-Edit: okay

Full-Edit: okay

Edit: I use IE8 RC1 with WindowsXP SP3.

Unfortunately none of my three Windows Browsers are in the list:

  1. KMLite
  2. TheWorld
  3. SRWare Iron

My usual three Linux Browsers, none of which get a mention are:

  1. Epiphany
  2. Galeon
  3. Konqueror

I'm using IE8 on a day-to-day basis without any major troubles. Some sites require "compatibility view" in order to render properly, but they're the exception rather than the norm.

I like it.

I get it. It won't work in XP. Works in Vista. Seems like a fact that IE8 is designed mainly for Vista...

nitroshift is funny :P

My favorite, IE5.5 is missing...

Hmm... IE5.5... very old. A great, loyal fan of the old IE5.5.

Sorry cluberti.. done the same mistake twice as i post the two poll-cum-topics together before getting the first notice from cluberti... will not repeat...

K-Meleon Lite (KMLite) seems quite popular. How good is it?

Anyone use Google Chrome? I feel like surfing on a fast board. great pleasure. clean and light, not stuffy like IE8.

KMLite, as far as I'm concerned, is simply the best browser in the world, it has the perfect balance for me between functionality and simplicity.

SRWare Iron, is Google's Chrome with all the crap removed, if it was updated a little more readily, it would take some beating as it is undoubtedly the fastest I've used.

My vote goes straight to firefox. Been using it from the first version 2 and it is heaps better than IE. Fast and looks good, customizable, secure etc. I don't know about IE 8 though because I have not used it yet but will soon.

I used to use Firefox but with Chrome I'm using it a lot more and find it just cleaner and more sleak.

So far i like Firefox but I've tried Opera, Safari and most IEs (except IE8).

I'm a tweak-freak so I just have to tweak most aspects of the browser to my taste.

I can do that quite well with Firefox (user.js, userchrome.css, add-ons) and that's the main reason why I use it.

Opera is a bit more difficult in that sense and IE's more limited in what you can do.

IE8, Firefox has gone bad

Eh? :blink:

In what way has Firefox gone bad?

I still prefer Firefox and have done for ages.

If I was forced to use IE, I'd say that IE6 is the best version (from a UI point of view)

When it comes to Firefox, I prefer Firefox 3.0.x though, as I think 3.5 is a bit disappointing and there's a few things I'm not so happy with.

To be honest, when it comes to browsers, they all have their issues, so it's best (for a complete experience) to have two, possibly three browsers installed on your PC.

I keep Firefox and IE8 on my PC.

As for my Mac, it's Firefox all the way.

I also sometimes browse the net from my Amiga 1200 and prefer to use AWeb-II on my Amiga. I like iBrowse, but it's a commercial product that I don't think is worth the money (at the moment)

I voted Firefox, though I liked Opera, too. There's no contest. Firefox has the best user control, and the ability to add so many extensions. Many of them I consider critical to my security and overall computing experience. Some people say the most useful extensions should just be integrated, and for the 3 big security extensions ( :ph34r: NoScript, AdBlock Plus, Better Privacy) I agree, but beyond that I don't agree at all. What I think is better, someone else might not like -- even if they are the one person in the world who hates something that's their perogative. And that's the point. Plus some people have slow systems and don't want extra crap.

Me, I can't live without TabMix Plus, Foxmarks, and a couple others, but some people don't even want the TMP features :blink: go figure. However, that's their perogative.
