Re: So what browser do you use?

I've been using Opera and linux for 3 years now.  I actually bought an opera license when 7 came out.  The only time I use firefox is for testing and a couple incompatible sites (like my bank's).  I do like firefox2, but opera does the gestures, tabs and side panel much better.  It's also much faster.  I just wish they released a gtk version.

Re: So what browser do you use?

Definitely have to go with Firefox, although I prefer to stay with 1.5.

I doubt that will ever happen, seeing as they use Qt for all their platforms.

I know, it's just wishful thinking.

Re: So what browser do you use?

Does Opera have any developer-like plugins. I use the optimized firefox build and it's rather fast, I would not be able to live w/o some of the extensions. Del.ici.ous bookmarks, firebug, etc.

The opera 9.2 beta has a lot of new developer tools.

Interesting, I will have to check it out.

Anyone see the digg post on how Opera users are the most satisfied out of the whole bunch of browsers? smile

Re: So what browser do you use?

i did see that fisch. I'm thinking about switching.
I just grabbed the optimized for G5 build of firefox. I have to say, it runs like lightning compared to the official build.

Re: So what browser do you use?

Just for fun... Rails Forum visitors break down this way currently:

Firefox 71%
Internet Explorer 12%
Safari 11%
Opera 2%

Camino, Mozilla, and Konquerer are all at 1%

A handful of others are below 1% (some random mobile browsers, unidentified ones, etc.)
