IE 5.0 - it is the standard where I work so I have to test everything on that. At least it's not still 4.5 lie it was up until just recently.

Valentin, could you explain why you see using IE as an error?

On Windows: IE, version depends on which Win OS (usually XP and 6 these days).
On Linux: Mozilla (usually), Konqueror (sometimes), Netscape (rarely).
I have tried Opera in the past and like it, but currently do not have it installed anywhere.

IE - tried to find something else that works better, but no luck.

IE - As a web developer, you have to be familiar with what your users use. I used to use Netscape but got tired of it crashing when they went to version 4.5 and never went back.

At work on Windows2K: IE 6
At home on Mac OS X: IE 5.5 and OmniWeb (IE when W3C compliance is important, OmniWeb for general browsing and reading -- its text rendering is nothing short of stunning)

Ask me why using IE is an error, I have answers.
I use win2k and RH linux 7.2 (dual boot at work, no choice, I have to switch to winblows to connecto SQL Server 2000).
K, come to the point, during the height of NIMDA attack, I had to take pains to remove (nimda a version) whenever I visited some websites (including a host in compaq), without my permission it downloads readme.exe and starts spreading.
Recently, it started a strange memory allocation problem and takes my machine to its knees.
When I use Opera/netscape on Linux, I can see what is happening and continue using Linux unless I want to connect to database.
I can name some more... but wait for somebody to do it

I just installed Netscape 6.2 on winblows (seems to work much faster compared to version 6.0), though startup is not as fast as i.e, but overall a good secure alternative

Conspiracy theory is applicable for NS6.2 on windows. It's fine on Linux and sux on Windows - Netscape should find out that it is another example of M$ anti-competitive practices.

Has anyone noticed that Opera 6 has some memory leak? Just a small leak (not a 'flood').

i use IE5.5
not sure why i dont upgrade
as a website developer i hate netscape
it has too many problem to begin to list them all
to be fair there are two things i dont like about IE. a site can add itself to your favorites without your knowledge or permission. worse yet it can make itself your home page, again without your permission

Is that why Opera 6 crashes after a couple hours of use? That is my only beef with what is easily my favorite browser. Over 90% of websites are rendered just fine (notable exceptions being msnbc and hotmail.) But after having it open for a few hours it mysteriously crashes for no apparent reason.
Too bad. It renders pages at blinding speed and the mouse gesture features are terrific. Hope there is a 6.01 soon to fix the issue.
