Go IE 7.0! I find that opera and firefox do not display all sites correctly (menus already been folded out and other minor stuff what annoys me )

And opera...you have to pay for a crappy program, my dear god, rather firefox than that...and rather IE than that

IE 7.0 is crap just the same. Its got all the holes that IE 6 has. And the reason some sites wont display correctly means that they werent coded right. Firefox and Opera are very strict when it comes to web standards. If the sites coding is bad it wont display right. IE refuses to follow those standards and makes people use Microsofts version of the code, which violates the WC3 standards. So if everyone knew how to code sites correctly we wouldnt have problems with Firefox and Opera not showing pages correctly. And almost every site shows up just fine for me.

Firefox does absolutely nothing that I care about. In a perfect world all browsers would conform to the standards set forth by w3c, in the real world they do not. Firefox doesn't follow them either, albeit they are much closer. If I have to choose between coding something for IE or Firefox, you better believe it is going with IE. Sure Firefox does all sorts of things with plugins and whatnot, I just don't care about that. I have never encountered a single site that didn't display in IE, I cannot say the same about Firefox. In general IE doesn't crash, again I cannot say the same about Firefox. I use Firefox but only to test cross-browser compatibility. Other than that I could care less to use it.
