Pretty much all of my friends & family use Firefox.
Pretty much all of my coworkers use IE. The ones that don't are generally either the OSS people or the ones that actually are doing web development; Firefox has MUCH better web development tools in general. I grind my teeth whenever I have to debug a problem in IE; I wouldn't say they're going out of their way to make it difficult, but they're not doing a thing to make it easier either.

You need to split up the second one into three questions.

I concur. Co-workers, and smart friends == Firefox (of course), but I have to assume most of my family still thinks "Internet Explorer" is where the Internet bits are spawned. I try occasionally to suggest they try Firefox, but sometimes I keep my mouth shut, lest I stir up tech support questions I don't want to actually answer (I love my family, but I hate tech support with the passion of a thousand white hot suns).

Hmmph, says the Opera user.

NTL, my coworkers mostly use IE, where my friends mostly use FF.

My web site says the top three are:
1	5014(hits)	MSIE
2	910		Firefox
3	230		Safari

Opera. How quaint. :-)

Of course, Real Men telnet to port 80.

As far as I can tell, everyone here at work uses Firefox, although I have no idea what IBM's actual policy is on this (they can be strange about what software to run or not run). For sure, all of the web developers use Firefox + Firebug, and they all swear by it.

We actually all use SeaMonkey; I didn't select "Firefox", but if you'd said, "Mozilla family", I might have. ;)

The only person I know who uses Firefox is my girlfriend, and that's because she has a Mac.

off-topic: Conclave, climbing?

Just wondering if you're expecting to be at Conclave?

Also, I'll be in town for the week following Conclave -- interested in making it out climbing an evening that week?
