Firefox most of the time here. Does pretty much everything I want it to do, including online banking. Works well on Ebay, too, where Mozilla seems to grind to a halt for some reason.

I've tried several versions of Opera, and although it's very quick to load up and a very nippy browser, it never seems to render either text or images as clearly as Firefox.

Epiphany isn't at all bad, either. It may not be quite as configurable as Firefox or Mozilla, but it's fast and stable.

Browser

Hi,

I use Firefox on Windoze and Linux. Also use IE but only where I have to as all UK banking sites seem to insist on IE.

A lonely Galeon user.

Surely they're not writing it just for me...

NatWest works fine with Galeon, so I expect it would with all other Mozilla based browsers, probably Opera too.

Give it a try with your bank - just don't expect any support from their help lines.

FIREFOX 1.0 !!!!!!! For both windows and linux.

mainly used because it is faster than mozilla and because i always used tabs and download manager since mozilla/opera.
and also the auto popup-blocker that IE only has on xp sp2 *grr* :@

anyways i have not had any major problems with firefox and those ie extentions GRR!!!

i recommend all users switch to firefox (or opera which fakes the ie headers )

I like the RSS feature very much. It's not bug-free... All my RSS links mysteriously vanished from my bookmarks a couple of days ago. I had to revisit the sites and add them again. No other bookmarks were removed or altered as far as I know.
