Firefox for one reason, Adblock Plus. And all the promised security enhancements for IE8 still don't work.

Just checked it out skier and it isn't compatible with v3.6. I'll check back in a few weeks and see if it's working.

I'm also using win7 64bit and had problems with FF just like yours
Moving to version 3.6 seems to have fixed them for me!

I switched to Chrome because I couldn't get Firefox to remember my passwords. I reinstalled half a dozen times and no luck.

I use Chrome and Safari. I use Chrome because it's fast and uncluttered (No stupid toolbars) and also very easy to use (I just can't get Bing search working from the address bar yet). Despite this, Chrome doesn't work all the time. For one, it doesn't support FTP and some sites just don't display properly. That's where Safari comes in. It's also fast and fairly streamlined, but a bit more cluttered and less clean than Chrome. :) Just my 2 Cents.
