Why don't you give Opera a try? I hated it for years (for no reason whatsoever), tried it once and immediately loved it Tongue
As for Chrome, same here. Don't want to get it myself but it'd be nice to read some reviews of actual users, not journalist or Google PR people.

I'm currently running Chrome but it is slower than Mozilla in normal websites. Also downloading sucks because you cannot select "run", you have to download file to HDD.

Incognito window is nice if you want browse something that you don't want others to find out. But this comes to Mozilla FF in 3.1

IE 7.0 mainly for microsoft based websites.

For me Chrome is the fastest browser, but I just prefer Firefox interface.
And there'll be a big speed boost with version 3.1 of Firefox, with improved javascript support.

I gave it a try once it finished the beta stage...

The Good:
It´s kinda free (at least for now), simple to use and install, it´s probably safer than IE (but then again any browser is).

The Bad:
It´s not very fast, if you close it any files you are downloading are gone with it, accesing your favorites is harder, too minimalistic for my taste.

The Bottom Line:
The worst part of it for me was the speed issues with some websites, wich is really annoying if you have a fast connection and a new computer.
