    Firefox v3.0 aka Minefield is the best ... well i don't get to use many add-ons in it , but the manual tweaks are enough ... nothing beats it ... i'm currently using Flock , Firefox v1.5.0.4 , Firefox v3.0 , Internet Explorer 7 , and Opera 9 ... and out of them all , i'd rate Firefox v3.0 the best ...

    the validity of the statistics are in stake, so they'r saying safari and opera outclasses netscape.. not in a good taste.

    IE is nothing but looking forward to IE7.
    For those who hate IE, use Maxthon instead.
    btw I am Opera user.

    Those statistics dont actually give the exact figure of corresponding browsers. See Opera is identified by default as IE. So the users for Opera may be even more than given! Opera is really intelligent browser. It doesn't plugins like FF but everything is inbuilt!!

    If you ask me,

    IE = Total Crap, unsafe, unsecure, slow, crash prone.

    I love FireFox then Opera. Firefox gives awsome quality and speed. Opera; good speed and good mail client.

    I am happy that Opera doesn't have big market share :)) That way it takes the charm away from virus writers to harm Opera users and then I am safe ;)

    IE rules because others donot know about FF and Opera. IE comes default with windows thats why.

    The % of IE7 is not increasing because.
    Few people like me have cracked it to run on pirated versions....
    The pirates are also using the net.
    But i dont think IE7 is worth testing,I currently use Opera 9(Very Good)
    with Avant Browser for sites that need IE
