I've been an Opera fan since it first appeared... though I have just rolled-back from Opera 9.50 as they have decided to remove suffixes from cache files... which means I can't mine in there to retrieve files....

@Taf - check out the 9.51 RC1 details and see if they added it back in - 9.51 is going gold in a matter of days, if not hours.

As for me, I put down Fx 3, as it is my main browser, but I also have IE 7, am going to get IE 8 installed ,and have Opera, and a few others for compatibility sakes - SeaMonkey, Flock, GreenBrowser, and Fx 3 64bit and a few others.

I have also rebuilt my profile for Thunderbird and am using Tb 3 a1 exclusively - it is *extremely* faster than Tb2 - at least as much of a noticeable difference between Tb2 and Tb3 as there is from using Fx 2 and Fx 3.

Good info on TB3, I used TB2 when I was on XP but liked the looks of Mail in Vista...I'll give TB3 a shot soon.

I have 10 email addys with data going back to almost 10 years ago - I used to use Eudora and still miss some of the ease with which I could do things, but Thunderbird ha always worked for me in the last 3 years or so that I have been using it and thus I have never bothered taking a look at anything else.

The *main* reason I like it is that I keep my profiles on a separate HD - so, after a reinstall, I install TB, run it with the Profilemanager switch, create a new profile, nae it and point it to the existing directory on the other HD and *presto* - it's as if I never formatted and reinstalled. It *literally* picks up where it last left off, no configuration needed by me.

I have done this around 12 times with the same profile for Tb2 and now that I am building the new one I am incorporating a few changes (like naming the mail store folders after the account to it is easily traceable if I have an error), and will continue to keep it on a separate physical HD. I honestly do not see me going back to another product after having used Tb for so long and *liking* it.

Became a complete FF convert on XP and started using IE7 again now I have Vista and then only because it's 64-bit but the lack of flash has me leaning toward FF again.
Tried IE8 beta for a short while but started getting machine hangs and was running it in IE7 compatibility mode anyway.

I have used Firefox since it was called Phoenix and Firebird. Firefox 3 is the best browser by far but I would less happy if the extension "IE Tab" didn't exist!

I definitely prefer Firefox 3. I used to be an IE 8 beta user, but after trying Firefox I was hooked. Internet Explorer was WAY too slow and with all it's cool features who would go back to IE? I do admit, I still have IE on my computer, but I haven't used it for months!

As far as Acid 2 and 3 compliance I see issues with MS browsers. I get compliance with IE8 for Acid Two, however a lot of other wierd **** happens to fail, so I have rolled back to emulate IE7, since IE8 still fails the latest Acid 3 test. Cant win em all MS, sorry. Overall I am a IE7 user over Mozilla however. I use Vista 64 on a Quad machine maybe is why.
