Interesting that the Mac is gaining a noticeable amount of market share now, and Firefox is being adopted readily. A year or so ago over 80% of people were using IE:

MS Internet Explorer 64.70%
Firefox 19.70%
Safari 9.50%
Opera 2.30%
Netscape 1.20%
Mozilla 1%
Others 1.6%

Jeez it's funny I remeber when Netscape was the king. Funny how they lost out. As for me Firefox is king now.

I use Firefox at home too. Although a few of the plugins do slow it down substantially. Flash being the worst offender probably.

Shame to see Netscape languishing at the bottom - there's is such a dynamic and sexy story.

Nowadays we use Firefox, IE7, and Safari.

I'd prefer to use Safari as it's the best looking but it's got download and Flash sound issues.

Firefox fucks itself up everytime it updates itself and IE7 has an annoying back button problem.

So none are perfect - at least not on our PC.

Sea Monkey seems to work OK but it's so ugly.

That's a Honda isn't it?

Interesting about browser resolution's too, over 93% of people use 1024 x768 or higher these days. I'm on 1680 x 1050.

The only time I had a problem with a Firefox update was when I tried to cancel it during. I learned from that time and have never had a problem since.

I use IE most of the time but if I have a problem with it I use mozilla.
