Internet Explorer 8, no doubts. I've experimented several other browsers, but IE8 is, for me, the best.

Firefox since back when it was called Firebird. I have to use IE at work and it's horrible in comparison.

You've used it that long -

it's a brilliant browser, though it often puts the English Dictionary out of joint with some upgrades !

but can anyone explain why it's getting slower to load first thing - or is that just because it's a big program .... once loaded it's fine and continues thus for the remainder of the day, even when closed and re-opened, but after a PC shut-down !!!!

Firefox at work, just because I am too lazy and pressed in time to switch to Chrome that I use at home and that is so much faster. At work I have a strong connection so it does not matter, but at home Chrome makes a lot of difference.

Welcome back, Beppe! I haven't tried Chrome. How much faster is it?

It probably is tied to hardware not the Internet connection.
Correct me if I am wrong.

I can't back this up with data, but I find it slower on windows than on Linux. Whatever it's loading into memory or keeping running as a process needs to be reloaded on a shutdown/restart, but it's still running when you close the browser and re-open (at least I think that's how it works).

Use Firefox,a few of the add-ons are essential. Like Opera but its lack of add-ons keeps me away.

I've been switching between Firefox and Chrome a lot, but since Chrome got extensions, I haven't looked back. The clean, clutter-free look and the speed win it for me.
