What's the best and safest browser?

  1. I've used IE until 3 or so years ago. I started using Firefox and loved it. It ran MUCH faster and had no popups (except on sites where I allow popups).

    Is Firefox the best? Or is Opera better? Or...is there a browser that's so good I haven't heard of it?

    I use Firefox on ocassion. But prefer Opera. I got tired of Firefox with having to download all the plug-ins and what nots.

    Do you think Opera runs faster?

    Yeah it seems like it loads pages faster. But I also have a 6 meg download connection too.

    Almost any browser is more secure than IE. Whether you`re a Firefox or Opera user, is really down to personal preference. Personally, I like Firefox and have been using it for a long time. I have tried Opera, but wasn`t too keen on it`s layout etc. Again, down to personal preference.

    personally I like mozilla browser, but it has some netscape issues. I like firefox second, but I don't like the layout compared to mozilla.

    (and no they're not the same browser)
