    This is not your opinion, it is someone else's. I thought you were going to tell us what you thought about it.

    Chrome as my main browser on my desktop/ultrabook.
    IE 10 for any university-related work (due to the streaming software the uni uses bizarrely not working in Chrome for some reason).
    Safari on my iPad.

    I never get any ads with IE, and my only toolbar is my favorites bar. Speed seems the same as when I use Firefox. It doesn't bother me, and I have like a dozen folders of favorites, so I'm probably never going to switch over.

    If you have windows 8 and when it comes out windows 8.1 IE 10 and IE 11 will be far faster and better to use then FF and Chrome. I found that out after trying both and IE 10 is just far faster and better when using windows 8.

    I have all of the internets, so it really doesn't matter what browser I use in theory.

    It's funny because the people who use IE are exactly the kind of people I'd expect to use IE.

    IE for business, Chrome for pleasure

    What is so wrong with IE? Unless you're a web developer I don't get it. I haven't had any experiences of IE 10 crashing.

    IE 8 and before is rubbish, but I have no issue with 10.

    I've never switched back since using Firefox but I must say that IE seems to use the least amount of memory out of the big three. On my work computer, Chrome takes up about twice the memory that IE does (mind you my work computer has IE 8 but I don't know how much of a difference that makes).

    Firefox, mostly. I tried out Chrome a while back but didn't like it, though I never uninstalled it. I still use Chrome and IE though to get around the 10-article limit on the New York Times [face_whistling]

    Things have gone in a weird circle recently...

    Firefox went dead crappy and resource hoggy, but now It is swapping places with Chrome... If it bothered me Too badly I might change, but I have Chrome on all my web connected devices and I like the synchronicity (is that a word, or just a police album?)

    Latest version of Opera is making me mad as they opted to go with Google's Webkit engine and abandon their own Presto engine. They have also adopted the look and feel of Chrome as well and have removed a crapton of the customization that was once available. I really don't like tabbed browsing and now there isn't a way to freaking shut it off and the address bar no longer functions as a proper address bar but tries to search every damned thing typed into it and there is NOT a way to disable it. I went back to Opera 12 (their last stable release) and at least have my customizations back.

    Suck it, Chrome.

    IE users probably also use Bing as their primary search engine, too.
