Firefox...pretty much all the time. Its free, generally more secure than IE, more customizable (is that a word?), and less twitchy than IE. I even got my mom to switch over to Firefox, and she loves it. :thumbsup:

I also use Firefox 3. I occasionally use IE when the web page needs IE to load.

Just moved to Firefox because of the recent IE exploit.

You should download the latest patch for IE7 to fix the vulnerability. :thumbsup:

If I have the option, Firefox. Sometimes (like at work) the only option is Internet Exploder. :thumbsup:
