Question IE Replacement?

Hey guys.


Right, i've just always used IE for browsing etc, just cos its there and i have no problems. I've heard people talk about about 'faster' browsers, or browsers that use less resources..


I'm running a broadband connection of somewhere around 500kbs.. Am i really going to notice a difference in browsing speed?

If so, what are your favourites, and.. Why?

Even if it won't make much difference in speed, getting away from anything MS can't be bad.

Default Re: IE Replacement?

My 2 favorites are Mozilla's Firefox and Opera 7.5. Give them both a try. I use them because Opera has alot of nice features and Firefox is a simple light weight browser which you can add alot of extensions/plug-ins to.

I like Firefox and I like MyIE2, both have tabbed browsing and are pretty efficient, I tend to use either/or depending on mood.
It's not just the being, it's the doing.

personal preference, but I abhor mozilla. I use MyIE2 or Opera. Mostly MyIE2 though.

I mainly use MyIE2. Simple to use
and tabbed browsing which is easier
than having multiple IE windows open.
