    IE is possibly the least used browser , the only people who use it are mostly some starters that can't change the default browser (I meet a lot of them) or Microsoft staff. lol

    Not quite..If only Firefox or opera would store the My Favorites like IE does.

    For myself i prefer quick access to the stored url's exactly where i know where to find which link im after..

    I use IE for everything, even the IE dev tools I find better to use than Firebug, Opera is nice an all but too slow to launch, firefox I've never liked. Safari too limited option wise on windows, Chrome trying too hard to be Safari. Needless to say I have all the browsers installed, and have to test with each one on a daily basis, but IE for browsing all the way.

    Aha ;) , that's because you are used to it not becase the browser is good or not.

    I use Firefox mostly for the plugins, but switch to IE when I get some bugs or errors.

    That by definition wont make it a bad browser. I use firefox(adblockking <3) currently but I do like Chrome more.

    Opera is just too bloated and IE misses all the functions I need on my browser.

    I have never understood why people always make this argument. There are far better ad blocking solutions available that work in any program, not just a browser. *cough* Ad Muncher *sneeze*

    Why can't we just agree on this?:

    That`s funny. I use IE only when i start laughing that FF won`t open a page.:annoyed:
    I don`t like IE. It`s too slow, but sometimes it`s good that you have it as an option. Chrome and Safari, not for me.

    It's not the name "Bookmark" It's how firefox sorts them out..

    I prefer the style of IE just like so,This way i know where the saved is when needed.With IE the Folders stay open until i close them.

    Thats one of the features that Firefox don't do.

    You haven't understood because you are "ok" for using a software with costs when there are free solutions..
