    Also, in honor of the new Star Wars announcement....


    Regardless of which browser you use, press alt + f4 for Hyper Jedi Mode.

    Chrome seems to be winning.

    Chrome is the fastest, but Firefox has some neat add-ons. However, it freezes on me increasingly often with each update, so for the least amount of frustration go with Chrome.

    IE, but only if 9 or 10, otherwise go Chrome

    I think eight years back I made the switch from IE to Firefox...now I'm too lazy to try going to anything else.

    Chrome or IE 8

    I ran into a problem with IE 9 causing my computer to crash a while back and I've tried to reinstall it but it keeps happening. So now I use chrome

    super mario bros bowser is the best because he floats around in a tea cup with a beanie propeller on the bottom and it has a face and somehow dispenses giant glass balls that it could not possibly store because of physics and the only way to beat bowser is to use a move that you literally never have to use to get to the endgame so you've probably forgotten that it exists.

    I've been using Firefox for years. I started because of its FTP and ad-blocker add-ons. I'm currently on version 13.0.1. I haven't had many problems with the current version.

    I use Firefox, its speed is enough(my pc is old and slow anyway) it has all the add ons I want and need(I haven't got many on but those that I have work perfectly) and it is reliable.
    Also I can customise it to suit my looks(especially the linux version-- I so don't like the whole tabs on top and no menu bar etc so I like that I can keep it how it is most convenient for me.
    If I need a quick no nonsense browser for quickly looking sth up I use midori.

    Guess I have to be that anal fan that points out you're describing Super Mario World Bowser and not Super Mario Bros. Bowser. :p

    I use Firefox, but I could just as easily use IE or Chrome. I require access to the Internet, you see.

    In that case, it would have to be the lead singer of Sha Na Na.

    BTW, IE10's release candidate is now out for Windows 7. It's a lot faster, and is finally 100% Acid3 compliant.

    But most importantly, my colors now properly have the embossing effect that I put on them.
