To me, it's just a thing I see webpages on. When I see 500 word postings on how cool/crap IE/FireFox/Opera is, I just laugh and click back to the forum index. I personally use none of them. Why? I use a browser made by a person at school! Just type your web page address in the bar, hit enter and you are away. It has only 6 buttons: Refresh, Stop, Go and Back, Home and Search. There's no viruses because only me and about 4 other people have it. And it was made from scratch as well.
About bloody time Firefox got up to 10%. Internet explorer is absolutely full of vulnerabilities which the alternatives (and regularly updated browsers) do not have. I have been informed and can actually believe that Microsoft hasn't made a significant change to IE in years and i truly could not live without some of the features which Firefox Gives me.
I will be downloading Internet Explorer 7, But won't be using it. Purely for the fact 50 different patches will appear on Windows update within the first week of release, as they always do.
