Netscape 4.08 have a great support, look at this, ticalc.org loads very fine.


jk it's pretty much the only site that loads correctly...

What's with the checkerboards? Did this browser or the OS display everything in 4-bit colors? ???

Yeah, that's dithering because my Win3.11 VM's color depth was set to 16 colors or something like that.

Please add Chromium to the list because saying that I use Google Chrome would be saying that I'm using Google proprietary code, and that is not happening.

Uh, they're basically the same browser. One just has integration with google services.
and blink.

I'd use Firefox if Gmail played a bit better with it :(

I try to avoid Chromium because it's under the control of Google, like Android. I trust the Mozilla Foundation more.

I honestly don't trust Google at all.  Once Dark Mail comes out, I am dumping Gmail.  I use Thunderbird and Fx quite often.  I am also wondering why my next choice, Tor, was removed from the list.  Wasn't Chromium (with one vote) applicable under "other?"

Tor isn't a browser, it's a proxy. The Tor Browser Bundle is a browser, however.

The browser itself, however, was named "Tor"...  Okay.

I am a huge fan of Firefox, mainly because it is open sourced and has a lot of addons, with customization like you wouldn't believe.  Also, I have never had a browser so fast...

Seeing as it is my duty to convert you all to the practice of Firefox:
@DJ Omnimaga: Couldn't you just use AdBlock to remove ads?
@Art_of_camelot: For an easy fix, launch Firefox in safe mode, then reset it to its default state by selecting [Help],[Troubleshooting Information], and [Reset Firefox] (Depending upon your version).  That should be a guaranteed fix to your problem.

I think I *might* have already tried this. I'll give it a shot again when I have a moment.

I completely agree with Thunderbird (just open it, type my password and it's done, no need to go to a specific URL then write my email adress before typing my password), and I also never had any problems with gmail in FireFox.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I personally always was confused and had troubles setting up external mail clients for some reasons. With Gmail you just type an e-mail and password and you're set. With Outlook and that stuff there is always plenty of other confusing options if you are not familiar with weird vocabulary like POP/IMAP.

Also I am surprised I am not the only Opera user in the poll, considering the amount of vote and the very small market share that Opera has compared to Firefox and Chrome.
