I am using IE 6 but every once and a while I use Mozilla. But most sites I avidly visit are not compatible with Mozilla and I hate downloading all of the plugins so I usually stick with using IE.

Desktop - Mozilla, 95%
IE 5% (Mozilla sometimes opens up pages of code when you click a download link - most annoying,:

Laptop - Mozilla all the time. I cannot do without the tabs.

jer1ch0, I agree, on my laptop I have to use Mozilla because the tab browsing reduces cpu usage instead as using new windows in ie.... and the Athlon 800 isn't capable of doing ten ie windows plus everything else i want it to do so mozilla helps this out a lot. on my laptop I use Mozilla Firebird, but on my home desktop systems I usually stick with ie.

Well cool. I tried Opera and I like it, very neat looking and more functionality to play with ... I think - it crashed on setup a few times, but it looks way cool.

And I finally tried Firebird, Randy mentioned it above, and I've been curious so I gave it a go. It is really cool - in that it is _streamlined_ way more that Moz 1.4 w/ very cool themes for it. I Highly recommend looking at Firebird for you 'Tab' people. The 'install' is basically just un(g)zipping, running a small reg update - run mozillafirebird.exe -p. (there is an installer ver too)
Firebird has been very stable for me so far. (Don't receommend installing it 'over' your mozilla install...)
