Hi guys.
I am using IE6 , and now want to switch to another(IE sucks, no security at all).
I have these choices:
Mozilla FireFox 0.8
Opera 7
Netscape 7.1
So what do you think Eric? which one of these are better ?
some guys tell me that FireFox and Netscape are so slow ?
others tell that MS has destroied Netscape!!
is it right?
I need a browser that supports Java applets and flash(like opera and netscape)..
waiting for your advice.....

John,
I like Mozilla/Netscape. It's a little slower than IE to start up and uses more memory. But the pages load at the same speed.

My personal preference would be Mozilla 1.6
Firefox is there new browser which is "lighter" then the other browsers..
Mozilla 1.7 should be coming out soon, I think they are in beta right now.
My one computer has almost all of the windows supported browsers on there. I work in a "windows shop" so I use IE most of the time.

Even though you only wanted repsonses from Eric, I'll put in my preference for Firefox for general browsing.

Opera has trouble with some DHTML, plus of the ad banner
Firefox is new, I like to avoid new things...
