From the site stats for BC:

75% of visitors' browsers identify as MSIE 6.0
17% of visitors' browsers identify as Mozilla/5.0 (Firefox is in this group)
4% of traffic is from Google'* bot (!)

i am a diehard IE user.... i have tried firefox with high hopes, even deleted all IE shortcuts just so i wouldnt use them...

there are some things about firefox that just dont work for me
1. takes to long to load... i am always opening and closing IE, and its instant, while firefox takes a good couple seconds

2. when posting, the tags do not work when text is selected, ex. [b], [img] etc...

when i am at work on my mac i prefer safari though
