I would recommend the latest version of Opera (9.64). I find it super fast and to the point! Never any problems

I'm running Wyzo 3 (beta) right now. Just got released not too long ago. Built on the same engine Firefox 3 is built on, but with more media features. Wyzo 3 - The Media Browser

I ran Safari 3.1 and preferred that over the 4 by a long shot. But a look at Opera 9.64 would be interesting since that replaced FireFox. Chrome on the other hand is the closest to IE seeing the additional bookmarks in the dropdown list to the right while IE sees the favorites version of that on the left side of the IE window when open.

The 9.64 along with Chrome haven't been tried out on the 7077 however with the full IE 8 in use there.

Avid IE user here, no issues at all with IE8 (now they've fixed it anyway LOL).

As a rule I primarily use IE anyways while using the alternates mostly on the 7000 build until that is toast! That won't be too much longer there since XP needs the drive space since nothing else will record video!

Once I'm booted in the 7077 again Chrome will still be added while the 9.64 update for Opera may not last long. As soon as you open any torrent that takes over and gums the works up by sssslowing thinggggs downnnnn aaaaa bit! IE 8 is far better there for sure!
