    It is strictly a personal preference. However there are definite advantages
    to stick to MS programs.

    Ever hear of AdblockIE? How is that an advantage to avoid IE?
    Be informed not opinionated.

    I had to revert from IE8 to IE7 due to incompatible websites.

    Adblock Plus is more mature and works better than Adblock IE, so I
    hear.

    Firefox has prettier themes.

    It's entirely a matter of opinion. Whenever you ask a question like
    this, you get as many different answers as there are choices
    available.

    Here's my answer: Maxthon is much better than either, and that's what
    I recommend.

    But I don't recommend that you simply take my recommendation nor
    anyone else's. Try them all and decide for yourself which *you* like
    best.

    I don't because IE8 was blocking sites as per this article: http://www.slickit.ca/2009/03/internet-explorer-fix-ie8-dep-crashes.html

    I hadn't any more time to spend on the issue as I had a project nearing deadline then.

    I'm going to reinstall IE8 now to see if I can get it fixed with the advice in the article.
