    ahem, i STILL use ie actually ! not exactly, but MAXTHON, which is an ie based browser. i decided on it after using 'em all. so i suggest u try out Maxthon, firefox and opera atleast, for say a week each, and decide on one, depending on ur comfort level with each.

    IE with all the latest patches is probably the best in terms of site compatibility
    Browsers specially opera has a gr8 deal of compatibility issue with many sites.As an example
    open this site with both IE and opera-
    http://www.indianrailways.gov.in/
    and see the difference.

    U can use opera as it is the safest browser. Opera does have problems in renderring some sites, u can open it in IExplore.
    But, use firefox, opera and ie to see wat suits ur needs. As of me I am in love with Opera.

    IE is good you will get all features except if you can use avant browser it runs on top of IE.
    so install ie7 and all latest patches...
    you are ready to go..FF is a system hog...Other option is Opera....I use it

    I have the screen shots of the same site in IE6 and Opera9.The difference is clear. The left panel is completely missing in opera.

    Obviously don't use IE. Its piece of horsedung! rated 8th on the list of WORST tech products ever!!

    Between opera and firefox, my preference goes overwhelmingly to Opera. Firefox no doubt is awesome but only with extensions, if you don't plan to use extensions then simply go for Opera, otherwise try both.

    As for 'site compatibility' , do this in opera

    Rightclick > site pref > cookies > delete cookies(manually) > network tab > mask as internet exploder .

    Now the site will become 'compatible' . Note that this option really hurts Opera, coz the site thinks that its actually IE, hence hurting Opera's market share.

    Example of the stupid indianrailways.gov.in site working in Opera:

    firefox is the best it loads text faster ,n if any site requires only ie then u can use the ie extention,that does it plus there are many other usefull extentions too which will make ur work more faster.
