Windows 7: What's the best browser to use with W7?

Thanks Ten

I like SRWare Iron, but it still doesn't make use of the flip 3D interface. I guess I can just not use tabs and open new instances of the browser to get this functionatily. It takes about half the memory of FF, so that is not so bad.

However, I don't think it has the security I wanted. I have already seen a couple pop-unders and 1 other thing I didn't want to get run. No add-ons eh? Well if I can't disable scripts somehow I guess I'll only use this for sites that I know are safe.

@digital
Is there a button or hotkey for the homepage? Right now I have to reopen the browser or spawn a new window to go home.

I'm using latest FireFox beta build and it's much faster loads then FireFox 3.0.10 (for me)..

Hey try clicking on the spanner icon on the top right and go into Options and in the first page there should be a checkbox for displaying the home button in the toolbar in Iron. Let me know if that worked!

You are right the addons or totally lack of any is the major disadvantage to this browser.

And hehe I finally read what the OP was for this thread lol so apologies for not reading thoroughly.

I am however not aware of this browser tab flip3d connection. That is something I am curious about. All I do to navigate between tabs is Ctrl Tab.

Im using Opera 10 Beta, and its the best browser i've ever had. I just love the build-in torrent downloader, the widgets, the skins. Its just perfectly, and fast.

NoScript is great. No way I would give that up.
OK I'm willing to try this, but what about the lack of History tab in IE? Being able to go back and search where I've been but forgotten is a life-saver. I use it all the time.

There's history. It's kinda retarded to get to but it's there. You click the Favorites button then click the History tab.

There is a third party add-on for Firefox to allow full use of jumplists etc it may be found here ....

Mozilla Links

It's still in development at the moment and I'm sure that the full functionality will be in Firefox soon

Jumplists are kind of neat, but that doesn't mean I can flip3d between mozilla tabs does it?

In my START MENU, there are two entries for Internet Explorer. One says just Internet Explorer and the other says Internet Explorer (64-bit). My Dell is a 64-bit -- should I be using that one rather than the "plain" IE??? Thanks for your help. Windsorlady
