Recomendations for a browser..

Hey guys, im running W7 RTM x64 Ultimate, and as you may or may not know, with Firefox 3.5, it in some cases causes explorer to crash. Im sick and tired of it crashing so ive decided to move on to another browser, id like you to give me your opinion on a browser, and reasons why you suggest them.

You can try Opera browser, it's very fast, light for resources and reliable browser on the market. I use Opera for years and love it!

i use google chrome.

it's fast, stable (even the beta that i've been using for a coupla weeks), simple and doesn't have extraneous bells and whistles.

there aren't that many quality browsers out there - it won't take you long to try them all, and make your own mind up.

Im currently using Chrome, but it has trouble saving the password for forums, because the page redirects before it has a chance to prompt me for password saving.

yeah, i've noticed that for a couple of sites too.

i'm not sure if that's a chrome problem, or the web site design.

it still seems to remember them anyway the next time you visit.

one day, we may have a perfect browser!

Well personally I love having all searches available on a browser search engine, in ie 8 you can add in the right corner an add on Umiboxu search, and it will show your top three search engines and results in 3 rows, It is truelly a great add on, You might see the webpage on it, as it works fine with all toolbars and browser, ubuntu, IE 8, Yahoo, and I use Bing, hotmail, yahoo, and My Space, and facebook, and I can set it to open any 3 searches at one time. All my favs are there and in ie you can save all toolbars at a click turn one off and turn one on or even have both on with great speed. I even use the music add on foxy tunes, so I can rock while I browse. So it is worth a look. Also try Software informer, It gives you a transparent buble you can place anywhere, and no matter how many webpage you have open, you have immediate access to bring your icons to the front to open a web video downloader or dvd burner or use any other icon to load a program with webpages undisturbed in front. You all should really love that feature, I always hated to have to minimize to ge to icons or go throug all programs to find my favs,,,, now in a click im there, It also will tell you which drivers or programs have updates. Best of all its free.

I've been using Opera 10 as my primary browser for a couple of weeks.
It's a good 'wean off firefox' browser. It's like running FF with minimal add-ons.

The others are good in their own way, but Opera's been the only one that I've used past the one week mark before going straight back to FF.
