Foxfire

lol@ Foxfire, I just went to their site and they endorse Firefox.

There actually is another browser based off Firefox:
http://getswiftfox.com/

 ;D :D ;D

might have to give the swiftfox a try here though

It's possible, I just found out about it recently so I can't say for sure.

Opera Mini 5 beta 2 is by far my favorite mobile device browser. It is REALLY hard to beat it.

Opera on a desktop is not as nice, it does have rendering issues with very few sites since it ONLY follows W3C specifications and will not give in to rendering poorly written code like IE, Chrome, and Firefox. It's more of a stubborn factor but it is one of the reasons why it has such a low market share. If only everyone followed the W3C specifications, the world would be a better place...

P.S. If you would like to check the W3C compatibility of a site you can use this: http://validator.w3.org/ . Our forums are W3C compatible and if you click the buttons at the very bottom right hand side, it should link to the same page. (I just checked it and we are having a few XHTML errors, but CSS passed with 0 errors.

I use Chrome Beta build. I was strictly a Firefox user until Firefox 3.5 came out. I was so disappointed in it. It was slow and laggy. I had tried Chrome before, but always went back to Firefox because of the customization with addons. When Firefox 3.5 came out it was about that time that Chrome beta went to 3.x.xxx.xx and extensions were introduced. There aren't quite as many as FF addons, but it is growing everyday and most of my favorites are there like adblock  and more(plus some new favorites that are Chrome exclusive). Recently I tried IE9 Beta and I really like it. It has much potential. I have also tried the Firefox 4 Beta and it is also very nice. One thing about these browsers though is that they both took a more simplistic look like Chrome, combining buttons and moving the tabs to the top so as to display more of the page. All browsers have their good and bad points. IE is slow, but every site will load on it's engine and it is familiar to all of us. Firefox is very, very customizable and somewhat fast and Chrome is extremely fast. There are other very nice browsers out there like Safari and Opera and I guess it all just depends on what you want out of your browser in which one you use. It's nice to have the options we have today. I remember a time when you didn't have much choice. There are even builds based on Chrome, Firefox and IE that are out there. Enough of my opinion. Happy Surfing!

I have been using Google Chrome for the past three months or so and I have been extremely satisfied with it. Before using chrome, I tried Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox, but both were nothing when compared to chrome. Accessing web pages are very easy with Google chrome and it is very fast. It loads pages within a flash and playing videos on chrome is much easier than on other browsers. Google chrome is the best browser there is at the moment.

Google Chrome is the fastest browser and I find it can handle flash better.
Also starts up really quick compared to Firefox. Just wish Chrome had some of the add-ons firefox has!
