Let alone the fact Opera is >insert derogatory term here<
+1

Plus the fact the browser just is very weak in the graphics/css department.
And it somehow not being intuitive. I keep clicking the wrong menu's in it.

All browsers have there pro's and cons.
I used Firefox for a few years, but it's getting so bloated and slow, I just got fed up with it. I just wish they would strip it down to the core, and leave people the choice to add in anything they want.
Why does it have to be more bloated with every version, when you have add-ins?

Chrome is without competition the fastest browser and I use it quite a lot, but it has too many quirks to mention.
But not being redirected to my private messages when I click on the notification popups, must be one of the worst.
And of course the fact I can't do online banking with it really sucks.
But realizing how new it is, I think it has great potential.
I just hope they will focus on improving quality and not quantity.

I use IE for every site that doesn't load correctly in Chrome, like my online banking and some other https sites.

So Sassa, thank's for mentioning the new RC, I will give it a try, although after reading Antman's post, I have little hopes it will be a permanent resident on my system.

I still use the developer builds of chrome, very nice and fast. Theme support too.

Tried opera, didn't like it.

I will try Firefox, again, in a few minutes.

I will uninstall it later today.
IE7Pro runs fine here and has been throughout the Windows 7 beta.

I have seen many reports of IE7Pro working just fine for many people. Pigs my system up - slow response to open tabs, perpetual hourglass on new tabs, etc.

Gotta go....

is the best thing they can say about their new browser is that it's got a new icon?

i love chrome

luckily, i haven't noticed any quirks, and i have no trouble seeing private messages.

finally, i have zero problems with my online banking (except for my balance)! i must be really lucky!

the only site i've had trouble with was some driver download site that wouldn't work properly - luckily i had ie8 as a backup. as chrome slowly gains market share/penetration, developers will need to add chrome compatability to their checklists - it can't be too hard.

anyway, isn't it great that we all have access to wonderful free software, and we can choose and use whatever we like!

Hi Antman,

What's not behaving properly with IE7Pro? My wife prefers IE to Firefox, but she likes the "speed dial" extension that I have with Firefox. I had used IE7Pro before so I downloaded it and applied it to her IE8. Is seems to be working fine. Am I missing something?

EDIT: Never mind Antman. I just finished reading the rest of the thread!

Read online about Windows 7 RC. I assume that means release candidate. I wonder if I should try it when it comes out in May. I hate using skins for programs or programs that imitate an upcoming OS. It's not the same and you don't appreciate it as much. Whether it is transformation pack or...
