    Firefox 4 sucks...

    You've gotta install extensions just to get back functionality that used to be default in older versions! And there's practically no compatible extensions available. If FF 5 (Which is only 3 months away) again results in incompatibilites, developers will lose interest and Mozilla will go down the tubes....

    Cleaner interface has resulted in dumbing down the browser.

    I'll stay with 3.6 for as long as possible......

    IE9 is very smooth to operate, only show the neccessary menus and functionality. The true 64-bit version also adds extra whooooshhh.

    I'll stick to Chrome, thanks. Everything else seems so clunky in comparison.

    I thought I would put my bias aside and try IE9 after abandoning it when Firefox first came out. Very slick, but one BIG problem it will never be able to solve:

    Firefox has a MASSIVE Add-On repository. I couldn't find even an AdBlock add-on for IE9 . I also very much doubt whether Firebug people will even consider porting it to IE9...heaven forbid!

    What is the difference between AdBlock in FF and the Pop-Up Blocker (with all its customisable settings) in IE9 ?
    In IE9 there is also an extensive Add-In Manager - letting one En/Dis-able any Add-In and also provide you with an idea how long it takes to load, knowing what the impact on your browsing speed would be.
