I like IE 8... no problems so far! I also have Firefox and Chrome installed just to keep up with the new stuff, but I use IE8 95% of the time!

I was 'converted' to FF about a year ago and it's now my browser of choice. Easy to integrate the add-ons and the spell checker doe it for me as well

Does not support HTML5

I think IE8 is fine, as long as it's on Vista or 7 with UAC enabled.

I used to use it but have found firefox much faster. I do still use it as some of M.softs sites don't display properly on F.fox!

IE8 is safer than Firefox, because it has Protected Mode support which Firefox doesn't have. Plus IE8's default UI is much better than Firefox's. Adblocking in IE8 can be achieved by installing Simple Adblock. But IE8 lacks some features like built-in spell-checker and download manager. It's also slightly slower than Firefox in loading pages, though this difference is hardly noticable. The bottom line is: if you want to customize your browser pick Firefox, otherwise stay with IE8.

I use FireFox. It's been more safe for a long time, so why would I change now.
