I'm using Firefox

Explorer keeps crashing on my home PC, so I downloaded Firefox the other day. So far, so good. It appears to be much more stable.

it's such a better browser. I love Firefox. especially the ability to block pop-ups. Gosh, that's a huge reason alone. Some pages NEED you to open up IE to use their functions, and I forget how blessed we are to have Firefox when I use IE and get aggrevated with those pop-up ads.

Don't forget the extensions! There are a lot of IE only sites that aren't really IE only if you use User Agent Switcher. It allows Firefox to spoof IE so you can access many (not all) of those sites with good results. There are tons of extensions, many of which you will want. Another browser worth trying is Opera, which is now free. I haven't spent much time with it, but I've heard good things about it.

One other thing, use tabbed browsing! Last I knew IE didn't have that yet.

Of course, I'll have my iBook at CCDA, so I won't be using either one (I love Safari). ;-)
