Best browsers?

MS Internet Explorer (IE 6 SP1)
click here

Net Captor
click here

Net Captor allows tab-browsing like FireFox, but is quicker, more secure and fully integrated with IE.
Modifying Internet Options, Favourites in one of these 2 browsers instantly keeps up-to-date the other browser.

I found Net Captor to be brilliant. Highly recommend it.

I still use IE for work, updates.
I use Net Captor for tab-browsing.

PS for Net Captor: I did NOT install ROBOT FORM and GOOGLE toolbar.

I got firefox as it was not integrated with IE, which i am not keen on.

And i like the google tool bar in firefox, as it is customizable, so i can add other search engins to it if i wish, and set them as the default if i so choose.

So for Net captor to claim to be "fully integrated with IE" is from my view point a major minus factor...

Sorry but i will stick with Firefox.

Net Captor is superb.
It lets you run several windows, each composed of several tabs of course.
Best of all, you can chose to have these tabs to be the same in each window or different from one another.

To answer the question, in my opinion, Opera. Try it.

NetCaptor looks a lot like Avant Browser (which is freeware & ad/spyware free) - click here - it is my favourite along with Firefox - click here. Another popular IE-integrated browser is Maxthon (formerly MyIE2) - click here. G

Have used Firefox since 0.9.2 am now on PR1.0
So versatile - either lightweight no clutter browser, or add as many extensions you want to fully customise to your own preferences.
Excellent ad blocker and popup killer.
Wouldn't go back to IE now.

Internet Explorer (or M$) has decided to act like a "Net Nanny" denying access to sites that it doesn ot approve of!

I use Opera as my default browser, love it.

Thanks for these comments.

I have used IE, FireFox, Opera and Net Captor.

My favourite is definitively click here

When it is claimed that Net Captor is fully integrated with Internet Explorer, is it then just as vulnerable to all the Security threats as IE?
