I use IE and have been for 6 years
At work, I had to test out many parts of our web-based software to see if compatibility with Firefox and Opera was there. Opera had some issues with SSL certificates, but otherwise, both worked just fine as if I were using IE.
My uses on both other browsers were very limited, but I do like the "flashier/snazzier" winXP/Mac OSX interface they offer compared to IE's tried and true, but boring and dull interface.
The tabbed browser windows happened to work out better for me for those situations (as opposed to that specific browser implementation of tabs), but I had situations using other browsers (Konqueror on Red Hat Linux) where it didn't work out so well. I believe u could turn that feature off anyways. I haven't even touched FF's extensions and other touted features, but since I'm alr sooo used to IE... I'm gonna stick with it anyways.
Finally, I am surprised to see many of us here are using FF. IE is still in the lead, but not a huge one. I would've expected at least 4 IE users for every 1 FF user. In the end, this 'll likely be better for all of us.
