    Okay guys, I know you think I'm nuts for using IE, but that's okay. :D I mainly use the MSN browser since that's my ISP, I know it's Microsoft too, but hey, at least it's not AOL.. :p (No offense to AOL users intended.) Besides, it's nice to have a place to put your Favorites list that you can access from Control Panel or My Computer. (Handy if ya making a personal website and want to put some of your fave. sites on it without having to get them from your account with your ISP.) Just MHO. :)

    Internet Explorer because, despite what everyone says, it is still the fastest browser. I will not argue the security factor, that would be no contest. I guess I just like to live life in the fast lane. I just got done testing and retesting for at least a week, IE against Firefox, Mozilla, and Opera for downloading web pages; IE is still the fastest, no contest. Those other browsers may be faster at other things (I don't know what) but not at normal, everyday surfing, just make sure when using IE that you change all those unsafe defaults in the options, etc.
