    Your not missing out on anything. IE 8 is shittier than 7. Had it for a while and went right back to 7.

    yeh firefox man. if u dont like it, then download some new skins and add ons, thats the point of it.

    ie is so shit and makes the user vulnerable to surfing the web.

    also firefox is pretty much fastest browser

    Agree with most of the above, always use firefox.......... some good addons if you are interested.......

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865 AdBlock Plus, stops all those crappy adverts popping up everywhere slowing site loading times up etc......Very good, can't remember the last time i saw one of those "congratulations, you have won an audi r8 click here" etc

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201 Down Them All - just a download manager, speeds up downloads, allows resume etc....

    I did use firefox then i got some virus and its never worked since, so i use safari, i really like it its really fast but for some reason it sketches out and stops randomly which is annoying, not all the time mind.Im sure its more likely to be a problem with my pc rather than safari itself.

    I tried Opera and use that whenever im doing something important and dont want it to cut out

    But yeah id try safari too, different browsers i guess will better with certain pc's and im sure safari was designed with the fapper in mind

    I've read in some computer magazine that opera is the fastest of all free browsers. Have never used it though, so i'm not for or against this statement. ;)

    I find Opera the fastest. Chrome is too light, Firefox is too heavy, while opera is juuuuust right. :D

    IE is worthless.
