What's up! I finally got my hands on Windows 7 Professional. I got it from Tek-Micro.com ... I was wondering what browser 
best interfaces with this OS? Which browser runs the fastest, say among Safari, Chrome or Firefox, even Explorer?

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

The best browser is the one that works best for you. Since they are all free why not put them to a test drive for a few weeks. Load them with the plugins/addons that you need for your habits and see what works for you.

My browsing/work habits are nothing like yours. I use Opera 12, which is discontinued now. So my suggestion doesn't even fit within your initial lineup. Safari doesn't work for me. Firefox too gimicky for my taste. I left Firefox ages ago and never looked back. Chrome is my third browser. But I have 5 on my machine to use for specific purposes.

Animal is right, it depends on your preference. I've found for speed. Google Chrome works well for me. For security, Firefox is always a good choice. Personally I dislike explorer..This isn't 1998 anymore. Lol It is best to simply try out a few and see which one fits your browsing habits best.

I use Comodo Ice Dragon. It's basically a clone of Firfox with a little extra security. It supports all Firefox add-ons and is a lot faster. The advantage over Firefox is that it tests the updates before passing them along which Firefox doesn't do.
