I actually like IE9 also.  I use both Firefox and IE9.  I stopped using IE after 7 until 9 came out then I started to use it again.  Firefox has issues also so those that bang IE9 in favor of Firefox I must say that as of now it is more of a preference.  If u like IE9, great enjoy using it, same with FF also.

Opera is faster than Chrome for Flash intensive websites, however as good as Opera is there is some dumb design elements. Right clicking on anything text based which is highlighted allows an instant Google search IN A NEW TAB. For whatever reason Opera chose to open it in the same damned tab. Also you can highlight any text on a page and drag it to a search box in Chrome, back to Win 95 select,copy,paste,click search style thing.

Opera on the other hand has auto page refresh and is lighter in memory usage overall.

However the ideal browser will have the best of Opera and Chrome. The rest are also rans in my opinion. I doubt very much that IE9 is even close to the efficient and fast engine of Chrome. It's like when those prize fools claimed "Windows 7 is as efficient as XP" yeah whatever mate, try playing a DVD full screen with 24fps on a Pentium II 366mhz (even if you have 2gb of RAM)

Need a part for a PC or Mac? PM me, I\'ll let you know if I come across it.

OS X trumps Windows on every level.

MorphOS, OS4 and Classic Amiga systems are the only ones who are real \'Amigas\', not that joke AROS or Amiga Forever.

I was using Chrome daily on this dual core 2ghz laptop. Win 7 ultimate. After google changed their privacy policy I stopped using it. I have to say IE9 is almost as fast and has better features..
