New poll: Browsers Wars #7!
Authored by: gidds on Feb 09, '06 12:44:15PM
Me too, for the same reasons. (Though I work a couple of hours less than that.)

Also, for AdBlock. I use it to strip out banners, text ads, annoying scripts, and all manner of time-consuming and distracting stuff. When I visit a magazine site, it's to read the content, not to site there and be annoyed by all the colourful, animated stuff round the edges (and in the middle) that's trying to attract my attention away. Nor is it to get my IP address logged with umpteen other tracking sites. With very little investment of time, AdBlock is great at making the web a more peaceful, relevant, private, and welcoming place!

Firefox is a bit big, and on OS X it does have the annoying habit of freezing up while loading pages. But it's very compatible, and is very good at managing lots of pages (e.g. the ability to bookmark and open lots of tabs in one go, drag to change the order of tabs).
