I hate IE5.5 because it always 1) locks up and 2) give illegal operations and shuts the window for no reason. I hate Netscape even more because it does 1 and 2 even more often than IE AND because the return key doesn't work on forms. So regrettfully, my choice is IE 5.5. I tried the browser "Opera" a while ago but found it was no angel itself.

I use Macintosh Internet Explorer 5.0 mostly. It has a reasonably quick rendering engine, nice interface, and a Subscriptions feature that works well. My problem with it though is that it occasionally quits while loading a page, and sometimes won't work until I restart.
I also have Netscape 4.76 (which I'm actually using right now since IE quit itself a few minutes ago). It's not quite as good as IE and lacks the subscriptions feature. Netscape 6 was terrible, I tried it and threw it away.

I use Netscape 4.72 on my computer, and I think I have 4.74 on the PCs at work. I have never ever liked IE... too cheesy and has too many of those annoying features Microsoft puts in it to make it easy to use for the stupid people. I do agree Netscape 6 is a piece of trash. I downloaded a Beta for it months ago, used it once, and deleted it. It was a shame AOL had to get their grubby hands on a perfectly good broswer that Netscape was. I guess I will be sticking with 4.7X for a long time.

At my uni we have a choice of IE5 and NN4.7. I use IE5 most of the time, because it features a more complete support for CSS, XML, and DOM. However, one BIG reason I prefer IE over NN is that it's got BACK option via Backspace key on keyboard. It speeds up the browsing, beleive it or not. In NN the shortest you've got is ALT+Left Arrow
