That's why I am having a poll! I have used I.E. for so long, I do not even know the options, much less their merits.

I need to move away from IE and you guys are supposed to be helping by giving me an idea of what is used out there. I feel like Sergeant Schultz talking to Col. Hogan & Crew.

I am testing Firefox. It is very laggy and seems bit clunky with favorites compared to IE. I have tried it off and on for several years, but keep going back to IE.

My PC is getting cluttered with browsers :)
Trying out Opera...looks OK so far. Any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Well, Opera massively reduced their functionality and there's something else I can't quite recall right now....acquired by a dodgy company maybe?  I could be wrong, haha!

However - if you like Opera I would strongly urge you to try Vivaldi.  It's made by some former Opera staff who were irritated with the way the browser was going.  It's very similar to the halcyon days when Opera used to be a much better browser.  I like it because the devs take privacy seriously and because it's a very rich, featureful browser.  I often say that using it feels luxurious.  Also, being Chrome-based, there's a shitload of extensions to choose from.

After Firefox jumped the shark I tried Vivaldi and haven't looked back.  It's perfect for me.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or not but Bing is a search engine, not a broswer. :)
