    I use MSIE6 simply because I haven't got around to tinker with other browsers and it does the job for me.

    Yes... I know... WE ALL KNOW... :D Whats the main difference between Mozilla and Phoenix? I hate mozilla because of loading time ONLY! Opera loads quicker...

    i use Aol 7.0. all the americans imediatly pounce on me for it but hey my parents pay for it i just abuse it:cool: i do prefere Aol 8.0 though as it has much better features,looks better + works better. unfortunatly i lost it as i jus refomatted + didn't bother 2 back it up..... i may redownload it. as a browser it is really nice how it combines all the windows in one unlike ie which clutters up ur browser-specily if u have 4/5 windows open @ time like me:D

    The reason i didn't post further information, and also the reason that you know that I used Mozilla is because it has been discussed before and i see no point in bringing this topic into debate again.

    As you asked tho, The MAIN difference between Mozilla and Phoenix is the fact phoenix doesnt include the IRC client, HTML composer or Mail client that come with Mozilla, there are other differences, but those are the main ones.
    Mozilla's loading time can be vasty reduced by using QuickLaunch and keeping it in Memory.

    There's a thread called "Internet Explorer V's Mozilla" or something along those lines, cant be bothered to find it becuase its kinda long and boring :p
    We just established that Mozilla is king and IE sucks anyway.


    I'm not annoyed *sharpens knife*

    The reason that I IE is the way it works with my 5 button mouse, I can go back or forwards just by using a mouse button.

    well... I guess you could say I'm using IE (since this browser is basicly using IE as it's based) so yeah, I could just go back and forward with a click of my side button of my mouse :)

    Got a point there, i do miss that. Altho it is actually implemented into Mozilla 1.3. And i think phoenix already has it, i may be wrong tho.

    Cool I'll have to give Mozzilla another try when the final of 1.3 comes out.

    I'm using Opera 7 Beta 1 at the moment, it crashes once every few days, but apart from that it's quite good. I'll have to download Beta 2 soon to see if it still crashes though.

    same here. greatest browser i've yet come across. Loads pages so much faster than IE I have to wonder how it stacks up with other engines, Gecko, KHTML (KDE, Safari), etc.
