    I myself am still a IE user, in my opinion it is fastest browser around and the plugins that you constantly have to download for the users, and not to mention, some sites just don't work in other browsers as coders used IE specific codes

    Link to site's main page:
    http://mozilla.org/

    Link to windows version of latest stable release:
    [urlhttp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.3.1/mozilla-win32-1.3.1-installer.exe[/url]

    Link to linux version of latest stable release:
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/r...3.1-sea.tar.gz

    Make sure to give opera a try too, they being the granddaddy of the cool features that other browsers use .i.e tab browsing, window cascading, mouse gestures:
    www.opera.com

    I'm an IE user, use to be a hardcore Netscape user but then couldnt deal with the hassle of reinstalling it anymore.

    I like Opera but its not all that compatible with Getright and I cant drag and drop links in it. I havent experimented alot with Opera and maybe theres a way to do it or a setting to enable.

    Yes that's all true. But For the netscape/mozilla users out there heres a usefull tip: Hold Ctrl and then click into different cells in a webpage. You'll be able to select and copy table cells like in a spreadsheet.

    Actually IE is not the fastest browser around.
    IE is one of the slowest browsers.

    Opera is currently the fastest browser.
