"for me though, i need simplicity in my browser, i don't use gadgets & widgets, i just need it to work perfectly, and the ONLY browser that has complied with all my needs is IE."
On a similar note, I don't use a lot of gadgets and just need my OS to be lightweight, to work perfectly, reliably, and to be 100% secure. To date, the ONLY OS that has complied with all my needs is Vista.
Anyway, I think this lil' browser war is getting old. Browsers are becoming increasingly bloated and burdensome. Also, with the old approach the settings are computer-specific, which can be annoying. The browser world is in dire need of the same revolution as the document processing world had with Google Docs. When will we finally have the browser-in-the cloud?
