I feel like trying out some different browsers over the next week or so....

What other free browsers are there other than IE?

What are the pros and cons of each?

Windows XP Home BTW (in case it makes a difference)

A good one which I use in conjunction with Internet Explorer is Opera. I like it and it suits me.Its free

Best wishes,

My preference is Mozilla Firebird (0.7) or Mozilla 1.5. Firebird is a stripped down version of the full Mozilla.

I agree with GANDALF <|:-)>. One of the great features is the tabbed windows.

Works in conjunction with IE and offers tabbed windows,popup stopper,multiple search toolbar,webpage translations etc.

I've tried most of the others but always found them to be lacking a certain something.

Slimbrowser is different enough to offer something new but familiar enough for IE users to feel confident.
