Which Browser?

I know a similar thread has been started before, but recently, it seems as though some Firefox users are going back to IE...

Is this a wider trend or just something very local to me that I've picked up on?

I changed to Firefox last year and havn't looked back since. The main reason I changed is because FF is so much faster than IE.

I think IE is fine for end user (although usually unsecure).

I hate IE when I'm designing, though! Microsoft seem to think they can write their own web standards.

I usually use Konqueror, Firefox, or Opera!

I just use IE, frankly can't be bothered looking at other options.
Most people who use IE have a similar reason I think. It's great to have the options, but unless you have a reason, most people will use generic programmes

I used to use Firefox because of the tabs feature but since IE7 came out, it looks neater and less messy and also, not all web designers cross test to their websites dont always work in Firefox so IEs just easier

I may be wrong, but IMHO, most web designers worth their salt make sure the HTML and CSS validates against W3C specifications.

By following the guidelines set by W3C, the website should display correctly in Firefox, Safari etc... but will most likely require hacks to make it work in IE.
