    Yes I have a few that do. Notably law firms, works better along with Foxit PDF when working on some state and other law sites where they heavily work on PDFs.

    For security purposes, since IE 7 and esp IE 8 came out..not so much of a security advantage anymore. Especially since I have UTM appliances now at many clients, combined with OpenDNS for DNS forwarding.

    The local public school district uses it for their grading software and recently mandated that Firefox be the default browser for use in the school district.

    We use both IE and/or Firefox.

    I use Firefox at work. I alternate between ff/IE/Chrome at home.

    I installed Safari on my work machine today....It was eating up 215 MB of memory.

    Lol. I wanted to try it. If it going to eat that much memory, then I won't be using it.
