I use all of them. They are useful for different things:
FPSB: It uses Microsoft IE software, which is labeled as "Internet Explorer" in some messages. Sure, Microsoft tries to say "This Program Cannot Display The Web Page." But in the title it says Internet Explorer on it... It might have some IE inconvienences, but it performs much better. You have many features on it, you can have system tray icon, session recovery, and it doesn't slow down after a while. It almost never crashes for me. Remember HotBar?? Hotbar has skins, but lots of Ads. FPSB has skins and they don't have any ads or toolbars or whatever else. All you do is download them from the website... So many other features and advantages, but that would make this post very long. Only thing that it doesn't do well as another browser is downloading. Opera is better at that.
Safari: I like Apple software better, but it performs annoyingly for Microsoft. Perhaps it is not doing well with Dial Up connections. My area is on a waiting list for Broadband service (at least from the company that I want to have it from). I use it for TVRage.com, I think is a website that doesn't perform well for DialUP, but FPSB works better with TVRAge. the reason was because it says "There was an error opening the page." so you will know for sure if the page loaded successfully. Other browsers will leave you wondering. One con is that it doesn't appear to be aware of the existance of FPSB!!
Opera: Very useful for downloading. The only one that I know of where it shows all and accurate information about the download, like saying "Error" and also you can pause and resume downloads.
Internet Explorer: Boring.
Windows Explorer: Type a website name in the address bar of one of your windows and see what happens!! Click on "My Documents" for example.
FireFox: "So What??" Yes, this is my opinion, but I don't think it is as great as many other people think it is. It is a very good browser that has many advantages, but in my using of it, has crashed many times and all my settings erased. But I bet that this has resolved by now.
Netscape: Not around anymore, I think. How sad.
Flock: Not used this very much. Haven't had time. I have too many browsers.
