They all have Pros and Cons, but there is Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/), Opera (http://www.opera.com/) and a few others but those are the main alternatives. I must warn you tho that some websites may be exclusively coded for Internet Explorer and may fail to render properly inside alternative browsers.

I use Firefox, and any pages that do not display, i right click on the page and select "View this page in IE".

Which is a plugin i downloaded from there official plug in page. the plugins are quite good, i recomend Firefox, as the secirty is much better.

I use Advanced Browser, all the stuff IE lacks, but being based on IE still works 100%.

Avant Browser and Advanced Browser are exactly the same (except for a couple of minor bitmaps)

Firefox here. I've tried many of them and I have to say in my opinion it's the best there is http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I use both IE and Firefox.

I don't realy bother that much with what they can do or not, as long as I can get online and do whatever i want to do it is fine by me.
But there is an intresting article Here (http://microsoft.toddverbeek.com/index.html) about diffrent browsers have a look there are many more than you think ;)

I used to use IE but I get less pop-ups and such from using firefox. It is hard to let go of IE. :( http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Wait does firefox have it? I remember Mozilla was irritating for when I wanted to view movies on the net. It would refuse to open Mplayer. :mad: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I'm using IE mainly, but the reason is: habit :rolleyes:

I have Firefox, which I find a very reliable and helpful browser, and I try to use it as much as possible - whenever I remember it :rolleyes: However, when I'm not sure about a content of a page, I most of the times open Firefox instantly http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I should put a Firefox alarm on my PC to remind me to use it more http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I use I.E 6.0.2 SP2. The reason is simple. 95% of internet folk use I.E., so I'm kinda forced to design for the masses. Try browsing TRC with Netscape. Yuk!

tlr, you should try browsing TRC using Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/) , it looks brilliant ;)

And a good many of the members here view in one of the Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.org) suite of browsers.

Nicky, you could set Firefox as your default browser.
