Question Favorite Browser

Whats everyone's favorite browser? Browsers that a can still reasonably be used (e.g. no IE 3.0)

I'm trying to find a good alternative to IE 6

Mozilla Firebird is an excellent browser. You can find it at mozilla.org

You could say I've been around.

Yeah, I use IE and Mozilla Firebird. The thing I like best about Firebird is the tabbiness... you'd think Microsoft would get with the program and just put some tabs in IE already.

Personally, I use the Mozilla App suite, firebird and IE. By far the fatest is Firebird, but I prefer the multifunction App suite.

Both Avant Browser and Mozilla feature PKs, but I use Mozilla Firebird for the majority of my tasks.
