Ok. This is the limited experience I have with these browsers.
IE8 - Seems to do just fine. Oh lord, MS kills me.
Opera - I had Opera Mini on my blackberry, and I am currently checking to see if it will work on the Samsung Blackjack II. Does anyone have input on the functionality of Opera 10 in contrast to IE8.
Safari - I ran this on a macbook I had, and I have to say I enjoyed the layout and functions. Is it much different running on XP?
Firefox - I want to slay Mozilla... It reminds me of going to a website, viewing at HTML, changing Icons and then selling it as your own.

Ultimately I want something functional with all of my e-mail accounts, Ebay Selling/Buying, Paypal transactions, Gaming Guides (You know you play them too) and honestly, It wouldn't hurt to have a good new's feed or weather feed for my area. Please let me know which I should investigate.

**I run Charter Security Suite, and it HATES Chrome. Anyone else have experience on how to make it more convenient?

You might want to try Chrome Frame. Google released this plugin last week. It gives Chrome functionality to IE8. This article at Lifehacker explains it better than I can and has a link to the Google Code website so you can download Chrome Frame.

Try them all. Install and use them. THEN decide which one(s) you prefer. Uninstall what you don't want.
Test-driving is the only way you'll find out what suits your needs.
