No they're in order by frequency. The default tab is popularity at the top, click on "Name" for alphabetical order. There sure is a lot of negative reaction to that site, it's great to be loyal and all but some of the reaction has been pretty unjustified.

So, how goes it with you all, have you settled on a browser and all happy with it yet? With all the different browsers to choose from, are you good to go now?
I switched back over to IE 7 when I started using Vista 64. So far it seems to handle everything pretty good and I have no major complaints. Love the searchbox on the for left side and have a bunch of different search providers. IE 7 seems to handle my 300 or so RSS feed pretty good and I really like the fact it is built in without the need of another app to handle feeds.
My only complaints (or wish list) is I would like to be able to use more space in the frame by condensing bars better, but not a biggy. The other would be that it forgets my user name/passwords for different sites at times and I have to hunt them up again, not that big of deal either.
So, what about you, what is your favorite, why, and how long have you been with it?
FireFox is my default, mainly because of FireBug. Can't even begin to tell you how many problems I've solved with it. Plus, I can spy on other websites, which gives me the illusion I might be in control.
If FireBug was available for other browsers, I might be convinced to switch, or at least feel like I have other options.

A post a day, keeps the white coats away!
I still use Firefox for some of its developer extentions and of course for testing, but my day browser is IE 64 now. It does not have active-x abilities so I have more control as to when I want to use them, and being 64 bit, it is pretty fast.
Yeah, it is pretty handy, the 64 bit versions up clean and fast and does not have the ability to run flash / active-x (problem hosting 32 bit apps I guess). Makes it safer to borwse and I switch over to the 32 bit version when I need Flash / Silverlight. I would like to get the time and actually build a content menu to the 64 bit version with option to load the current IE window in 32 bit version for those times I need it
