I only use IE for....errr.......nothing actually :D
I use Opera 8.0 (actually bought it for 8 € :P), because:
1. It IS the fastest Browser on Earth: http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/browserSpeed.html
2. Everything Firefox (or some extension) does, Opera did a long time ago (tabbed browsing, mouse gestures.....)
3. The Mail/RSS client
4. Firefox is mainstream and mainstream suxXx0rzzzz ;) (OK, forget about number 4 :D)

I love the minimalistic setup I use: http://mitglied.lycos.de/sturekartreides/Opera.jpg

I use Firefox at all times.  I refuse to blow up my computer with SP2 and thus IE is about as secure as a serial killer in a fenced-in yard.  Firefox is great because it's halfway between mainstream and archaic.  IE is the spyware junkie's browser of choice.... I see people come in every day with a computer infested with spyware.  They ALL use IE.  I tell them to download Mozilla and only use IE for those sites that don't work with Firefox (such as banking sites, etc.).  They never have to come back for spyware issues.

It's worth the time to figure Firefox out as opposed to downloading/buying a hundred other security programs for you computer.  Then again, if you don't browse pr0n or surf for mp3's, even IE is passable.

Opera.
I'm doing the beta, haven't paid yet. I like it better than IE. I only use IE to open some sites Opera can't read (Opera doesn't accept ActiveX) and have a nice little button that automatically launches IE to whatever page I'm viewing. Very nice indeed. ;)

Awsome, how do you get that button? 

I use Opera at home and Firefox at work because Opera does not work here.  I like them both but do find Opera to be faster, maybe some day I will actually buy it.

You can go here (http://my.opera.com/forums/showthread.php?s=9682d5449ac8ca5ab1223be70bc9ea13&threadid=81920&highlight=InIE+button) and look at the 8th post. You can drag the InIE button onto your toolbar, but if you click on it, you should be able to add it to your 'My buttons' section, to use whenever you want (if you just click and drag, you won't be able to call it up again if you delete or decide to move it around).

Thank you so much Zealousy, that button is fantastic :D

I love Operas ability to use those buttons, I have another great button that "kills" for example those Hover-Flash-Ads.
You can hide any element on the page, pretty cool....

The latest Firefox update 1.0.4 crashes randomly!?

Now I can only see some sites in IE.

By the way, you can never delete any of the extensions/plugins.  This sucks.
