I started using Mozilla years ago and never looked back.

Well the only two browsers I have had experience with are IE, which we all know blows, and Mozilla.
I will obviously say Mozilla is the best, but that's only because I have never tried the others out. I also wont compare it to the other ones, and I wont even bother comparing it with IE, because like I stated before, IE blows. Mozilla is very easy to use. Its interface is similar to IE which makes things easier. Bookmarks transfer right over too. Deleting cookies, history, and address bar history is also very easy. Mozilla comes with a nice mail program, too, which like the browser is very easy to use.
Probably the only complaint is that Mozilla hogs some resources. Right now it's using 18,100K of memory, and 67,360K of virtural memory. Oh well, that's my browser and I'm stickin to it.

I was using IE but have downloaded Mozilla 1.7 and been using it for about 6 weeks now. You might want to use 1.6 as it is a final version where 1.7 is still being worked on according to Mozilla.

I downloaded Mozilla FireFox a few days ago, and i must say that i'm impressed!
It's hard to explain, but it just has all those features IE doesn't - Skins, download manager and so on...
The best part was that it was able to import my IE settings automatically, so no fiddling with gateways and DNS.
Mozilla has also made a complete internet suite available for download (with firefox included) at www.mozilla.org
Oh yeah.... and it stops pop-ups as well

Opera is excellent, and the non-free version is even better. I recently pruchased it, and it comes with a slick email client and other nice faetures you don't get in the free version as well as no ads. The free version still rocks though. Also, konquerer does whatever i need it do do on my linux box“One things for sure: Whenever we play, our goalie stays warm.”

The only problem with Opera is the way it's layed out at first is very non IE like which I'm sure tends to scare away those who are too lazy to change it (which is very easy).

Free browser - Mozilla/Firefox/firebird whatever you want to call it
Payed Browser - OperaOne by one the penguins steal my sanity.

The best free browser available now has to be Firefox, hands down. I have over the last 5 years used the following browsers: FireFox, Mozilla, Opera, Crazybrowser, IE, and Camino (on a mac), and I must say that Firefox is the best of all of them, the next best would have to be the Mozilla suite. I personally use Firefox with Thunderbird as my mail client, and have had wonderful success with them, although, one of my computers uses Mozilla 1.6. Tabbed browsing, and the inherent customability of firefox make it golden.

I started using Avant Browser about a year ago and now use it exclusively
I've tried others, but still keep Avant
