SeaMonkey?

I use IE, and haven't had any problems with it (as of yet :roll: ) so I'm sticking.

I still can't believe that people still use IE.
Its like finding out people eat the seeds and throw away the flesh of an orange.

There are people that still use IE because IE is what Micro$oft bundle with windows, and those people that use IE are those who aren't smart enough to figure out that they need to go get a replacement

(I use FireFox btw, although opera isn't bad)

I heard bad things about Chrome, but haven't tried it. I usually play with firefox on my desktop, IE on my laptop. Safari sucks.

I've heard that Chrome uses a lot of system resources and memory, and I have IE8 Beta, which sucks for now...

I use Firefox

Never used Opera or anything else.

google chrome is faster than firefox and IE 8. But I use firefox as it's easier on the eyes.
Plus I use addons in firefox like Greasemonkey.

Chrome has a nice "process viewer" built in so you can see exactly which tab is using how much CPU, Memory, and Bandwidth - it's a great tool for pointing your finger at a webpage and saying "ah-ha! YOU are hogging it all!".

IE always appears to be the least system-hoggy because of it's integration with Windows. Half the processes are hidden in Explorer and other rendering engines.

FF tends to consume a lot of memory because it likes to cache the last 15 pages you went to. When you have multiple tabs that stacks up pretty quick, but it is a convenient example.

Overall, though, I don't care. I have 1.5gbs and I figure if I can use it ALL, I should!

Only complaint about chrome I have is it's color scheme (which I've gotten used to, but skinning would be nice) and the mod community hasn't picked up their slack yet so there aren't a lot of plugins. Give it time!

I'm sticking to Firefox in the mean time because it has a host of extensions. I'm not going to live without Firebug! (And the implementations by other browsers are all ugly / awkward / crappy compared to Firebug.)

I don't like how Chrome looks. I wish Google would make applications that would match the look of the system they run on.

Chrome rules. Yay for application shortcuts!!! (you make a shortcut to a website and it gets its own window when you click it(it's an application too and not just a favorite!))
