    Ie7 for pupils, ie6 for staff and Firefox for me.

    ie6 on staff because I've not been brave enough to do the upgrade yet.
    ie7 on pupils because I reimaged all classroom machines and added it to the image

    firefox for me because I like it better than ie.

    ie6 schoolwide for users.
    We can naturally run what we need in IT but I personally love opera 9.5 beta right now. Its just so damn fast.

    I.E 7 everywhere deployed from the WSUS server and we don't seem to have any issues.

    It would be nice to have Opera it's by far the best browser, maybe one day when i have more time :-)

    IE6/7 and eventually 8

    Love it or hate it as most people here will no doubt state so many applications only support IE so you don't really have a choice do you.

    I just had a spec in for a Sage CRM package which must use IE5/6/7 .Net 2.0 and SQL2005.
    Any other configuration is unsupported.

    I don't think it's a question of what one may consider best, it's a question of application compatibility.

    If your in house MIS will only work with IE are you just confusing the issue by adopting multiple browsers?
    It could end up costing you more in support time than it's worth.
