I have FF at home with adblock and noscript. When wrestling with an already too slow computer I find it advantageous not to sit for ages while the browser crashes trying to start pointless scripts...

I use Opera at work, the speed dial is dead handy and i like having my email in the same window.

I generally only ever use IE for things like Windows Update that just plain don't work properly...

it's funny how so often M**rosoft sites (Windows Update, Outlook Web Access) only work properly in IE... there was a short while that MSN (as in the portal site, not the messenger service) was serving Opera with a Style Sheet that didn't actually work in any browser. If you forced it to serve the IE style sheet, the site rendered well... and the "opera special" didn't work in IE or firefox

IE6 at work though I'm now on the IE8 test team, and mainly IE8 at home, though I also have Firefox etc for website testing.

IE6 and FF2 to be deliberately behind-the-times, for testing purposes.
