On my Mac I use Safari as Firefox just sucks for Java whatnot(and I have online class work that is all Java and only partially loads).

Chrome on Windows, love the clean look.

Do you guys really need to be worried about security?

Man media sure makes people paranoid.
I'm with you. People get so worked up about it.

I think firefox2 has a memory leak...

This is with 28 windows open.

The 3 instances of IE with 50 windows open uses 12x less memory....

I've been converted to Opera. Speed Dial's a nice feature.

only real issue I have with Firefox is the virus scanner for the downloads is horrible and lags my computer really bad sometimes, so I shut it off and for the most part I have 0 issues with it. I to am not a huge fan of google, I like their search engine and gmail but thats about it.

I still love using Firefox. If something comes along better than FF then I will switch. It does everything I want, and I have tried Safari, IE, Chrome, Netscape. Sites that don't like FF I have IE Tab installed to let IE look after that page. I also like how easy it is to back up my profile.
