Opera is still faster and does not require all the add ons!

While I am a Windows fan....especially Windows 7, I am not now, and have not been for a few years, an internet Explorer fan.
Bob, IE Tab will not be supported. Install Coral IE Tab; it is IE Tab's replacement and works just fine.
Thanks for the info, now at 3.6.3 with Coral IE Tab and all is well in my little corner of the web.

I love these kind of threads. Everyone argues about how much better their browser is, despite us all knowing it really doesn't matter and theres very little chance us arguing about it will change anyones opinion.

As to your comment, what is Opera faster than? I know in my experience its faster then Safari/IE/Maxthon. Firefox and Chrome still trump it in pure speed. While Chrome trumps Firefox in pure speed.

Again, thats all what I've experienced. It may and likely is different for others.

Opera 10.51 is the fastest browser not counting betas the latest Chome 5 beta is faster but it's close.
download the browsers & check for yourself.

You should try the Dev builds of Google Chrome, you'll see new features before Beta/Stable builds do, and they tend to be faster.

Firefox. I've been using it since 2003, and I can't see myself switching anytime soon. I'm far too used to it now. Chrome is a good browser but IMO isn't enough to pull me away.

firefox is the best!
The reasons are:
1. It's fast
2. Lots of functions
3. Themes

The only thing I hope it was there on FF is ActiveX
