If you aren't using it: start.
If you are using it: upgrade.

Not sure how long it's been out but I just got it and it's much faster than the beta version.

Werd. It's so nice being able to come here & not have my virus scan go crazy while I get bombarded with trojan laced adds..atleast there were adds packed with ad/malware, not sure if there still here since I dropped IE.

Anyways, Firefox pwnz.

I prefer Maxthon It's not as XPesc as Firefox, But I find it far more functional and I have come to depend on many of Maxthon's features, Such as Mouse Gestures,( with simple right click and a mouse gesture you can close all tabs open a new tab, go back a page or forward, Plus many more.) IT takes alittle to get used to but once you do you'll wish every app had mouse gestures.

Web site groups(you can open any number of sites in Tabs and then save the whole lot as a group. then with one click you can open all of those sites at once) Oh ya Mathon is also a multi Tabbed browser.

If you want to open another Favorite site, But want to leave the one your browsing open thats easy the new site is automatically opened in a new Tab.

There is almost limitless possiblities in customizeing and intergrating Maxthon to suit your needs. Maxthon is also skinnable.

For another option in web browsers check out Maxthon (http://www.maxthon.com/en/index.htm).
