 I have Opera installed but still use IE with Google as my home page. It is a
neat browser but I have occasionally had problems accessing some sites.

 I used blank for a long time but found I was using Google most of the time
on first access anyway.

 I always used to use Netscape for years but was forced to turn to the MS
behemoth when Netscape went beyond v. 3 and became unreliable.
