I often end up going back to IE, despite my best attempts to escape it. It's because they get the little annoyances right. For example, when I close my IE window, the download doesn't quit (like Chrome). Also, I like to have my pages zoomed in a couple of notches to cut down on the eystrain. IE remembers the zoom level permanently, whereas Firefox and Chrome seem to trumpet as a 'feature' the fact that you have to rezoom on every new site you visit. If you visit a lot of sites via Reddit/Digg or whatever, this gets old *fast*. One more - I've noticed recently that Flash player keeps failing on Chrome with that 'unresponsive interface 'bug. Fine on IE though.
Having dropped Firefox last year for being excrutiatingly slow while Chrome and IE8 were bloody quick, I'm now back on it trying again as it seems to be almost as fast as Chrome now. Let's hope nothing more than the zoom problem crops up to drag me kicking & screaming back to IE!
