Well, Like Broni said you can have as many browsers as you like but:......
For starters, I will suggest you try Firefox which is a stand alone browser and the latest and greatest.
A companion to that for e-mail is Thunderbird which sort of gives you a browser/e-mail combination package same as does IE and Outlook Express.
I'm a cantankerous old man set in his ways who used Netscape for a long time until the AOL Dummies got hold of it.
Therefore, I now use Seamonkey as my primary browser because it is Identical to the old Netscape which is a Suite arrangement meaning is has e-mail built right into the browser.
Bottom Line, I suggest you try Firefox/Thunderbird and Seamonkey to see which combination you might like.
For what it's worth all 3 programs come from the Mozilla Group.
I currently have installed on my computer all of the above plus some old version of Netscape because again as Broni said having more then one browser allows you to trouble shoot when a problem occurs.
I'll also tell you that different browsers and even different versions of browsers are subject to displaying the exact same web page slightly different. This is mostly noticeable between IE and the Mozilla browsers.
I might add installing more then one of the Mozilla browsers they will attempt to use the same profile and it is recommended you create a separate profile for each one.
My 2 cents, Ray
