    That may be due to the fact IE isn't really standards compliant where as FF is.

    Windows generally has been full of bugs and Microsoft has to keep releasing patches. I do like XP and it has been nice to use since I switched from 98. Widows just eats up too much memory. If all my programs were compatible with Linux, I would switch to that.

    FireFox is by far the better browser than MSIE. Especially from a web designers point of view. If I didnt have to cater for what we affectionately call the "Bill Gates Headaches" we could cut even as much as 25% off design time for pure css layouts. As they say time is money.

    Safari is good also.

    You realize Maxthon is just an interface on top of the IE engine, right?

    There are really only a few distinct browser choices out there.

    Internet Explorer
    Mozilla (includes Firefox and modern Netscape versions)
    Opera
    Konqueror (includes Safari)

    And to round out the list:
    Lynx

    In short: find out what your users use, and make sure they can use your site.

    As was said earlier, use a standards compliant browser and tweak for the others - it's better for the Web :D

    However, if you're serious, you should make sure you run at least a couple of major pages through as many different browsers as you can (and as many as are used).

    If people are using a Linux box to view your site, spend the handful of dollars to pick up Knoppix. If people are using a Mac to view your site, hit a public terminal that has Macs, or search out a willing Mac user to grab some screencaps. If people are using Windows, see the Mac info.

    You don't necessarily have to build for them, but at least get an idea of what they'll be seeing.

    Yup, it certainly does sum it up.

    FF is the clear winner so far, which is more or less what I expected (and that result will inform the design process for me).

    A handy consideration too for SEO tool developers :)

    I must say tho - I'm more than a little curious about this IE beta..

    Cheers,

    JL

    Develop using both FF and IE. Check in FF first then tweak so it works in IE.

    I read in one review that IE7 will require the system to have SP2. This may be a mistake on MS's part since there are many users, businesses even, that removed SP2 from their systems. Apparently it was causing more problems than it solved.

    My idealistic part prefers FireFox for its CSS capabilities, but as a developer I use IE most of the time, as this account 80% of my users. I basically like to spot any IE behaviour right away, even though it could do it the other way around.

    Also, on a more personal note, I’ve grown seriously addicted to my fancy mouse with a lot of buttons. It’s supported in IE (back, forward etc.) but I haven’t been able to find any extensions to help this along in FF so far…

    Have both IE and FF installed though, and switch between the regularly.
