Well,
My primary browser is Internet Explorer however some of the others that I enjoy are Yahoo, My Yahoo, Fire Fox, Netscape, Alta Vista, MSN, Comcast's and AOL. As to the resolution issue, I don't remember. It's pretty good though, for I hook up my nearly ten year old HP computer with a Gateway 2000 monitor to my HP6580n HD TV DLP and it really looks good on my TV Screen. I can even use my Logic Tech wireless mouse and keyboard about ten feet back and away from the tv screen. Super for surfing the web or just perusing family photos.:

FF 2.0 with 1280 x 800 pixels.

But I use IE also.

I use mainly FF with java turned off (for security reasons) and IE only for my trusted sites.

So I voted for FF

Firefox, for sure.

1920x1080 is my monitor's resolution (Westinghouse 1080p 37" LCD TV). It sits on top of a very deep desk, so I view it from about 5' away; it's been my monitor for about 15 months, and despite people telling me it was going to be bad on my eyes, it actually works marvelously well, and my excellent vision is still quite intact.

1680 X 1050 on my monitor at home. I like the wide screen for many things including this forum. At work though I'm stuck to 1024x768 on a pair of CRTs, one 17" the other 19". Maybe when the hardware fairy comes and takes my old CRTs away she'll leave a couple 21" wide screen LCDs :praying:.

Opera at 1680x1050 32 bit color.
I use Opera because it zooms graphics as well as text. Even though I use a 22" widescreen LCD monitor, I sit far enough away from it so I have to have the screen zoomed 200% for easy reading.

I also use Firefox when needed.

Never use IE unless absolutely nothing else will work.

If I am playing a game I use my second computer for internet. I use Firefox and 1024 X 720 on a 18" (I think), monitor or 800 X 600 on a 15" monitor. They are kind of worn and stay brighter this way. If I am using my laptop I use IE with 1440 X 900. I don't use multi-monitor mode very often.

Firefox 3 and Thunderbird without question.
I run 1280x1024 on my work PC and 1280 x 800 on the laptop at home. My home desktop I have duel 17" LCD monitors and run my desktop across both of them.
