Okay, first...what do you all use to surf the net? Are we nerds or are we NERDS!?!

Poll #455506 Internet Browsers

Common...who do you use to surf the net?

Microsoft Intenet Explorer--because if it's good enough to come pre-installed on my comp, it's good enough for me, even if it IS full of exploitable holes for every virus, spyware, and adware known to man
3(14.3%)
Netscape--Because I like really old, outdated things
1(4.8%)
Mozilla/Firefox--Because I'm Hip and Savvy and like to do a thousand things at once. CNTL+T Baby!
14(66.7%)
Ace Explorer-Because I like to know that every single site I visit is backed up
0(0.0%)
Enigma--Because I like Firefox knock-offs with cryptic features
0(0.0%)
Opera--Ugly Toolbars are my Friend!
1(4.8%)
WinWAP--Because I'm oddly addicted to wireless internet and niavely think other browsers can handle WAN
0(0.0%)
Avant or Advanced--Because I'm addicted to features and for some reason am so lazy I have to have all my open windows remembered for me.
1(4.8%)
Mosaic--Because the name is awsome...and the browser is almost as good.
0(0.0%)
NetCruiser--Because I was bored, downloaded it one day, and now it won't go away.
0(0.0%)
Safari--Because I actually LIKE Apple Computer, Inc. and mistakenly think they make good software
0(0.0%)
Santa's Browser/IOD4-The Web Stalker/Galahad/Surfin' Annette--I like obscure things whose main redeeming feature is their offbeat names
0(0.0%)
Something else--I'm so far from mainstream I don't even know where the stream is anymore
1(4.8%)
Something else--This poll is stupid and discriminatory to me and my poor, ignored browser
0(0.0%)


And, after all that...can I just say, if you haven't yet tried Firefox, WHY NOT? Seriously. Tabbed browsing, pop-up blocker, download control, built in search bars for Google, Dictionary.com, Yahoo, etc, RSS feeds, lots of skins and updates ALL the time! WAY better (and safer) than Internet Explorer. Curious? Check it out here! Download today...you'll be glad you did.
1) The download is free.
2) It's spyware/adware free, I promise. No downside to downloading.
3) Test it first. You don't HAVE to make it your default if you don't like it, but if you're like me...you will.
