Firefox vs. Flock web browser

I've been using Netscape for years and am now using version 8.1.3. I get a pop up saying Netscape no longer supports N.S. and it wants me to migrate to "Flock". I do use I.E. for some applications that wouldn't run well on Netscape (like Club Stogie) but always liked Netscape better because it ran faster and, probably more importantly, it's what I'm used to.

I did a little googling on Flock. I don't " blog, use Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, and other services." All I want is a danged web brower. I use G-mail and run it through Thunderbird. I do like tabbed browsers (and haven't updated I.E. to the tabbed version as I was afraid something would screw up. (Sometimes, "new and improved", isn't.)

It seems like I've been getting lock-ups with Netscape more recently and hope whatever I switch to will be better.

So, "Flock" or "Firefox"? What the "word in the jungle"?

I use Firefox mainly because I'm used to it. Tried Flock and didn't like it but I don't recall why. It was quite a while back so maybe I would now. I like Opera and have been using it off and on for years, even when the free version had adverts. I've used Sea Monkey in the past and its fine. Usually use Safari on my Macbook but also have Opera and Firefox as well. On one of my Linux boxes I use Firefox with the 3.0 Netscape theme that brings back the old days when I used Netscape over IE.
