No idea about web browsers - I'm not the Inet browsers expert :-)
I use IE6 with very strict security settings + KIS6 + my head :-))

Also use IE + KIS6. Why install a browser when it already preinstalled.

I used to have IE6+Opera+Firefox+MyIE, but now I'm using IE7+Opera+Firefox.
Opera is my favorite browser.

In my opinion Opera is the best.

Opera here too. Firefox seems to be getting a serious vunerability near on every month.

Glad the exploits are lower for Opera.

However Maxthon (IE shell) is supposed to be more secure.

Until the market share for that browser rises. :)

Yes you are correct. I can only wonder why it hasn't started already.

My vote is for Opera as well.
But I get the idea that IE is better protected by KIS.

i really don't see that point as true. the http scanner & anti-phishing/banner have generic support for applications.
the scripts mostly target IE, so you are safe with opera even if there's no script checker.

My Vote also go to Opera. I also had FireFox for one day :cray: but I couldn't accept that after fresh install I have to look for soem plugins and installed it. Opera form the beginning have everything installed :cray:

On the other side of the coin, I believe in simplicity, and have as few plug-ins as possible. I use Firefox, but don't have many extensions or add-ons as they're now called. In fact, I only have three.

I have never tried Opera and would like to know is it working well with all internet sites?

Firefox which is the one I run now have problems with some sites that are made for IE, and some sites looks wrong because things are missing on the site.

I have the firefox IE plugin installed so I can surf through IE via Firefox, that helps when I land on a site that works only with IE.

Of course I have also installed IE7 and use it now and then but mostly firefox.

So my question is, does Opera work well with all websites or do I still have to use IE on certain sites?

Opera will work great on all websites.
in my opinion it's even more stable than IE7 & Firefox.
