Everyone uses their choice of a browser to get to the internet, so this is not a question of which one do you use or why.  You use what you use because it works.  If it didn't you would change browsers.

My question is do you have a second browser on your computer? 

Not really a simple question because if you don't like IE you load FF or something else and you automatically have two browsers.  I haven't head of any people uninstalling IE and I'm not sure if you can.

So, if you have multiple browsers on your system tell us why.  Is it only to provide yourself a back up to get to the internet?

Are there conflicts that can occur because of having multiple broswers?

Slow day for me, I may even come up with more questions.

Sorry, but at this time you may only use Internet Explorer to upload new photos.


That is on this site if I want to upload a Photo to my Photo Album.

So use FF all the time apart from when have to use IE .

Happens on other sites as well so need IE as well.

Having multiple browsers installed won't cause any conflicts.

FF is my primary browser. I also use Links, which is a console based browser for when I am working at a CLI level and need to access the net. It works well and if started with the -g switch will display graphics as well as text although I rarely use that as text only browsing is much faster.

Konqueror and Nautilus are also installed on my system but I use them as file managers and not web browsers.

FF is my primary browser. Some sites just work better in IE, and sometimes I'm just feeling contrary and use Opera, too.

Why? Because I can.

Godd enough reason for me.

These days I use FF as my main browser. Before using FF at all I used Opera for certain sites because I preferred it over IE and I still use it for the links I have saved in it. Use IE7 when I have to.

I use Opera always. Sometimes iexplore and sometimes safari just for a change.

I almost never use IE, only a couple site I go to require it, and I guess I could use IEtab extension for FF but don't bother.  Otherwise I currently have SpaceTime installed because its a rather cool way of using the web, mainly in the search area, but I don't see me using it as my main browser at all.

I can tell you this. When Stardock updates our sites we start with IE and then work our way out from there.

I personally favor FF for all the plugins I use every day with limited troubles. From my experience in support I find more reoccurring problems with Opera than nearly everything else. I simply use FF until some random site gives me hassles then I often try it in IE. That generally solves it. I'm looking forward to IE8.

For the purposes of Stardock sites if you ever have trouble with browsers always try it in IE to see if that is the case.

Seabass, apprreciate the info from the Stardock point of view.   

I have tried plugins in IE but they always seem to cause problems especially Google ones.  (

I installed FF3b5(nowFF3rc) as a back-up and set it up with WC as home page. IE7 hasn't allowed me to rate skins for weeks no matter how much "housecleaning" I do.FF does,so here,I'm on FF ,everywhere else,IE7. No conflicts so far.

Interesting that on a skinning site, so many prefer the uglyed up menus and toolbar that Fx has. I use IE, why? cause it skins better......

mitche323 just remember that the choices we make are all our own.  

A lot of the times we step back and sometimes say, "Now why am I using that?"   

Functionally should have something to do with our choices, don't you think?

this is not a question of which one do you use or why. 
 
So, if you have multiple browsers on your system tell us why.


mmmhmm...

I use Fire Fox as my default browser, and opera as a backup browser on my system, depending on what browser I feel like using at any given time. IE was uninstalled from my system with xplite because I've always hated it, and yes you can removed it, but I did it the stupid way... To date I haven't had any conflicts due to having these browsers installed on the same computer, or the lack of microsoft's default IE browser. Overall, my system runs smoothly...

I have heard that before. I too have had problems but I have a system now based on the plug ins I have already running in FF. I fear change.....

Have you tried simply clearing the cookies then logging back in yet? Does that problem with rating skins apply to all skins you try to rate?
on May 21, 2008
I usually run IE7 as my main app when I am downloading stuff .... I can rate skins no problem

~ But the Browser of choice for me is lil'ol Deepnet Explorer .... I have never had any probs with it (touch wood ) ...

I used Firefox for 23 minutes last year ... and got spanked by a coupla trojans , so never again ...

Considering Opera Browser at the moment ...
