As part of my job, I have to use alot of web applications that require IE. Fine and dandy, but I miss alot of cool features and plugins that I've been acustomed to in Firefox.

There are alot of alternative browsers out there that are based on the IE engine. Slim Browser comes to mind. Rather than try every one of them, I figured I'd solicit the opinions of those who have tried many different alternatives. So, what do you guys like and why?

Thanks!

Ohh! Alternative browsers based on IE security holes.

Oh, save it. I've been doing this a long time. I already use and love Firefox. I don't want this to turn into a M$ vs everybody else thread. I just want to discuss browsers based on IE.

Forget all of that and disregard my question. Soemtimes it's better to ask your coworkers and not a bunch of guys on a gun board.

DIG THIS: How about an extension to Firefox that allows you to use the IE rendering engine INSIDE OF A TAB? This is the solution to all of my problems. I've got all of my kick ass plugins, and I can use IE to render a page if need be.

This is REALLY COOL. Check it out:IE Tab

They've had something like this for awhile. I think the older version was called 'ie view'.

I thought only AOL subscribers used IE browsers.
