I'm sick and #&*% tired of "Internet Suites" with sooooo many bells and whistles you can't find the browser...
I tried FF years ago, one.point.something I remember. Now THAT was a disaster greater than Netscape 4!
I stumbled upon KM. The browser, the whole browser, and nothing BUT the browser. It's Gecko, so no ActiveX. It's a fork, so no XUL. It's Open Source, so no corporate heavies. And it's fast. We're not talking fast as in some people claim for FF or whatever. We're talking fast as in stripped-down-for-action like a greyhound out of the blocks, or a cheetah overhauling a gazelle.
Oh, did I mention configurable? I have an IE toolbar! I have IE Favourites! (I could have Opera Hotlist or FF Bookmarks if I wanted them...)
And unlike a major Gecko browser, there is no need EVER to clear the cache to try and fix some annoying problem, and it ALWAYS goes to the site you want, WHEN you want.
And it uses standard plugins for the usual after-market accessories -- PDF, Java, etc.
I do have other browsers -- Opera 11.51, IE6 SP1, Sleipnir 2.9.7 to get true tabbed browsing in IE6. I used to have QtWeb, but that barely had a pulse and didn't support Java, so I pushed it.
BTW, I use Eudora 3.0.6 Lite as my email client, for most of the above reasons, but mostly because it does not understand HTML 3, 4 or 5; and does not understand JS or ECMAScript; and does NOT use MS Access to store messages and attachments.
