Smile What is your Ace in the Hole Browser?

Over the years I have found having a backup browser is a good idea in case the one you use isn't working. Yes I still use Internet Explorer but not as much as I use to. Alot of you use FireFox, which is ok but I really like to use Opera 9.63. I have had fewer problems with it than the others, but you should keep a extra one ready just in case. You will find you can fix alot of your own problems on your own if you do this. I hope this tip will help you out in some way. Happy New Year James

I am a Firefox user, but when I need a different browser for whatever reason I now use Safari since I am on a Mac. Firefox works 99.999% of the time for me though so I almost never need Safari.

My main is Firefox, my back up to be used only in extreme emergencies where nothing else will work and I really am that desperate to get on the net is IE.
I have yet to be that desperate, or for that matter to have a problem with Firefox.

Began using IE, now a died-in-the-wool Firefox user.

On my Mac, I like Firefox. I do not have any problems with it, so I'll leave well-enough alone for now. For you PC folks, I extend my condolences. Instability appears to be the only constant for your systems. You would think with all the time they have had to get it right, that they would have come close by now. Must be an "internal problem."

I have a PC and don't have any instability problems at all. Everything works fine and smoothly here.
