    I like IE as a browser because most sites are designed for it; however I have found that it loads quite slowly when I am at school. I use Chrome when I'm at school, as it loads much quicker...

    Safari for Windows

    I have downloaded Safari Beta 4 for windows. It looks nice but i do not know whether it is much faster than other browsers.

    Speed is not everything and I don't much like Safari anyway - it looks like something out of the Ark. I'm glad to see that, as shouted by Ian Murray, Opera and Firefox are relatively the most secure as they are my two favourites in that order, though not for that reason. Incidentally, for people who may still think that software for the Mac is hard to come by, I currently have 6 browsers on my iMac (Safari, Opera, Firefox, iCab, OmniWeb and Browser) and there are more where they came from. I am an eclectic browser

    I'm like Denis - one browser is nowhere near enough. Running on my desktop are Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey, Safari, Chrome and IE6 (I refuse to update). As a webmaster of sorts, I check my product on all of them. Otherwise Firefox is my standard, while I use Opera set up with Chesschat as the home page. IE is only for Windows updates, which MS ensures don't work with others.

    It's hard to split them - I'm inclined to rank them all more or less equally

    I recently found out that Firefox takes its name from an alternative name for the exceedingly cute red panda.

    I switched from IE to Firefox for most things because IE crashed too often. I'm now finding Firefox crashes sometimes too but that's probably because I haven't updated it in yonks. Generally I have a reluctance to update programs in case they fail to work on my system in some unexpected way in the new version.

    I'd hazard that's your Microsoft self-defence mechanism twitch kicking in! It's OK and good and healthy and progressive to upgrade - often - when MS isn't involved.

    I gave Safari the flick

    After looking at Safari I prefer Firefox.

    I wonder what Safari looks like on a PC *shudders*
    Bill, can you assist with a fair assessment?

    I've used the Mac version on rare occasions, with no particular impression made, good or bad

    On PC it's pretty ordinary, although Firefox enhancements can be imported

    Anybody tried the new minefield? I heard it was supposed to be props but haven't actually tried it.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.
