Gotta hand it to you, for your unusual reasoning there...

It works perfectly for me, in fact on many sites it behaves much better than Microsofts overbloated offering...

This is the major reason I have switched over to Chrome. I can check my Gmail, Google Voice, Google Wave and Facebook all from my browser bar. I did download and play with Opera, but I think that I am going to stick with Chrome.

Opera for me. I switched to it mainly cos of features like the mail client, turbo (saves bandwidth), thumbnail bookmarks in new tabs, etc. Looks the best out of all the browsers too, imo.

I'm happy with Firefox. But in all fairness, it's all I've used since I got a computer again a little over a year ago.....and going back some years before that, I used Netscape on Windows 95(with 33.6 dial-up ). Once I feel I am fully acclimated to this new computer and OS, maybe I will try the others out, but until then Firefox (with Adblock Plus, IE Tabs, and NoScript) is a comfort zone for me.

I always use Chrome my self now because of its speed and ease of use. I am also very impressed with Opera and FF, more Opera though. I have a satellite internet connection, and Chrome loads images and video up faster that any other browser I have. (IE, Op, FF, Avant, Netscape, Saf, and of course, Chrome)

Like when I am FB the pics especially in FB Chat take longer to load in others while Chrome is instant, .

as mentioned before, it is really up to what you want!

LunaScape

Lunascape is the first hybrid browser, in other words you are able to use 3 different engines (Trident IE engine / Gecko Firefox engine / Webkit Safari and Chrome engines) moreover you can choose which web page has to be open with which engine.

NEW in last version many Firefox extensions works fine with LunaScape when using Gecko engine.

I use Opera and like it very much but some sites won't work with opera so I installed LunaScape as a second browser and enjoy surfing the page that did not work with Opera moreover I also enjoy Firefox extension and speed from webkit engine.

For further information and download please go here : Lunascape Web Browser - The World's First Hybrid Engine Browser

THE BAD THING : TO MANY USEFUL INFORMATION ARE IN JAPANESE IN LUNASCPAPE WEBSITE.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU

hmmm. I have never heard of a hybrid browser before. Ill have to give it a go. I do web development and am still learning at TAFE (college) so testing in a variety of browsers is important for me.

Lunascape

I actually came across lunascape myself recently and have it installed on my laptop.

It sure does offer a lot of configuration options it's a lot to take in at first, I do wish it had a built in mail client like Opera anyway this browser is very handy for web developers who want to check how their site displays in different engines.
