    I've noticed that some websites work better with some browsers, but not with other ones. IE has worked with most, but saving pages of websites has not been possible with all of them. Some have been saved with FireFox, and could only be opened with FireFox, or Netscape. Other websites had problems saving graphics, but were only able to be saved with Opera, or Secure IE.

    Ive had firefox for some time now and I cant remember the last time I got a popup. No other popup blocker worked as well. I love it for the tabbed browsing and bookmarks manager. Unfortunatly some sites dont work with firefox so I still have to use IE occasionally.

    I use Safari and don't get pop ups like I do when I use IE. Most other browsers are MAC haters anyway. :p

    I have Mozilla with Firefox on my PC at work though. I don't really like it.

    Not sure what you mean by saving and entire webpage. I also don't know if it works will on a PC, since I use Mozilla with Firefox on my PC at work...

    Some browsers, like IE have difficulty saving pictures along with the entire web page which contains text. In HTML format, there are 2 folders which get saved simultaneously. One has the IE logo (the main folder), and the other one is just a plain folder which contains individual pictures from parts of the web page. MHTML saves the page as a single file, but does not always save the entire page properly (text with pictures). It will show an "X" where the picture is supposed to be.

    Safari is Mac OS X only. I use Safari almost exclusively, but I also have Camino (Mac only) and Opera on my machine(s). The newest version of Opera seems pretty cool, but I'm really used to Safari and it works really well.

    The popup blocker in Safari works really well.

    The only browser I refuse to use is IE.

    IE for me. I really don't have any problems with large files or pop-ups. Besides, seems when you get used to something it just "feels right".

    Firefox for me... So who has converted to IE 7 and Firefox 2.0? Personally Firefox has been causing some issues for me.
