Well Opera is quite slow in my opinion.

I'd suggest either firefox, opera or netscape.

Thier all a lot better than IE.

But firefox is way safer, and a lot faster. Also you can customize it to your liking. :)

Agreed. The only thing with Firefox is that on my PC while running XP and even Ubuntu it crashes a lot... even after several formats... It's not stable at all, but then on my laptop while running vista it runs perfectly, I can't understand why.

Yeah although Firefox ain't that stable at times, it does work well for awhile.

Although I have had problems with it, pages start to load slower after awhile. Like I find that if I don't erase my cache every once in a while the browser slows down. What I love above it, is that you can customize it how ever you look.

I like the adblock plus and foxytunes for my firefox. Also I find foxclock very useful ;) It's also got quite a few addons for web developers. :D

I have had no problems with Firefox stability on XP Home/Pro. Perhaps you have some odd plugins?

Firefox on Linux tends to struggle with Adobe's half baked attempt at porting the flash player to Linux. There is a fix I believe but it isn't easy to apply.

Well neither on Linux nor on XP, at first I did not have any plugins, even after a fresh format it did crash... so seeing that it still crashed a lot then I did install some plugins, I had nothing to loose.

I would suggest to use firefox - safe, secure, and top of all it has various plugins with active community to make your surfing experience much better!

Cheers

Firefox is by far the best and with all the plug ins and add ons for it, it is better, I find it crashes sometimes but all web browsers do.

Firefox is way more secure if you get noscript but I find that to be rather annoying though.

Actually my school uses navigator for when we learn HTML, we start with explorer but switch to navigator later.

I didn't like opera, i found it was too slow and crashed a lot. Although it does have some good features, most of them you can get in firefox.
