Opera

Firefox Rocks, but I'm an Opera fan !

My vote goes for Opera because -

1. The GUI is the best
2. Email client is truely integrated with the browser
3. The fonts appear neat and clean

In btw...
Biggi....My findings.......again...a bit controversial...but stilll

if IE 7 will not cause the hanging prob than it is ok and looks cool
Other waise....

FF rocks

Its firefox all the way ... havent really load tested Opera's parsing engine so cant really comment on that ... but IE is so bad that I am surprised as to how can MS package it with Windows with a clear conscience πŸ˜€.

A couple of years back when I was developing a website, which involved dynamic table generation, my colleague wrote a code which churned out a table which had infinite number of columns (later, we tweaked that code, so no worries πŸ˜€ ). When that page was opened in IE, the browser would crash due to shortage of memory! (Document Object Model, at its work), the DOM parser was the reason why it was crashing.

The same page opened pretty smoothly thanks to the SAX parsing of the mozilla engine.

Firefox is great! Using it for a loooong time now. Amazingly fast, I can open my mail in 5 seconds (Gmail) !!!!

And Love the little extentions and themes. Smooth, light and efficient.

Ofcourse crazyboi you are right about no relation between speed and browser. I simply meant the amount of comp resources and speed in a perticular PC. That speed also depends on the toolbars as you said.

The thing with Firefox is that it has awesome extentions (I removed ALL toolbars excpt Address and basic)
. For example ScrapBook, Answers, WhoIs and Flashgot. They take each max 500KB
and hence making it much flexible and useful.

For net speed I have tried changing some internal settings of Firefox, which is not at all easy with IE. example, under network.http I have increased max connection, max connection per server, max persistant con per server and proxy and pipelining, pipelinning max per proxy etc...

Even scroll options and image loading options which can show a page anyway you like. Whole without image or image first and text later etc 😁

I just love itπŸ˜€
