    http://webkit.org/ or Firefox. Webkit beats the shit out of every other browser in compliance and speed, bar none. It's the engine Safari runs on, but it's the unreleased new one. So fast.

    I use IE7. There is too much stuff that I use that Firefox 3 butchers. Plus you can get addons for pretty much any browser that gives them the same features.

    I use an addon for IE7 called IE7Pro. It adds things like adblock, more robust tabs, gestures, session manager, etc.

    Also Firefox (3). Various reasons, mostly related to working faster than IE, having better search and favorite/bookmark features, and having a much cooler logo.

    I do keep IE7 around for badly-designed websites though. I look forward to the day IE8 comes out and all the tards have to re-write them after a barrage of "your website doesn't work" calls from Joe Average.

    Firefox for me. The address bar functionality brought in with 3.0 is very useful, once I learnt how to use it. I run the following extensions:

    - Flashblock, which takes care of all the annoying advertising, and stops badly built websites from grabbing all my bandwidth for their flash.
    - Nuke anything, to remove any format breaking images people post with two simple clicks.
    - Linky, to allow me to highlight a bunch of links then open them all in new tabs at the same time.

    So although I have no real problem with other non-IE browsers, I won't even be looking at them unless they have something to match those features.

    I won't be touching IE again, unless I have to, until Microsoft does some major work to making it secure. I'm talking about dropping Active X completely and reducing how tightly IE is bound into windows before I'll even start paying attention to it.
