    Opera, mostly, and for some sites that don't work under Opera (like my university's information system) I use Firefox.

    Firefox. There are not enough words to describe how much I detest Chrome, though I have to use it on my laptop.

    Firefox. I use Internet Explorer if I have to, but I far prefer Firefox. I have no experience with any of the others except AOL, which was used on my family computer years ago. I see no reason to try Chrome while Firefox is still as useful and effective as it is.

    IE. Does virtually everything I need to do.

    Google Chrome

    I had been using Firefox for 5+ years until just recently. Firefox kept crashing and acting slowly for me -- even after I re-installed windows! So I decided to take the plunge into Chrome. It works great. It feels faster. Overall it's virtually the same. Although I am liking the automatic search of Google that I can do from the address bar.

    I could hardly tell the difference between using different browsers, so I just use the default. Safari, in my case.

    I use a bunch. I voted IE because I use it most, but a couple sites work better on Firefox, so I sometimes have both open 8-} And I use Google Chrome at work because Firefox was freezing. I actually quite liked it. I've always had trouble with Safari, so I don't use it, when possible (and usually computers with Safari also have Firefox these days, so it;s not an issue anymore).

    Oh, yes, Safari. I'm not sure how I could have forgotten that I've used it many times before on school computers.:p Still, I really don't like it much and will use Firefox when able.

    I don't understand why Firefox keeps crashing for people.You make sure your version is up to date, right?

    Chrome.


    I used to be a Firefox user, but it started crashing and taking forever to load. I made the switch to Chrome and I haven't looked back.

    I use Internet Explorer, because it works best with my computer. My current version is 8.

    Chrome. FF is too slow and crashes all the time. I got tired of it.

    Besides, on my current job as a web developer, we only use WebKit. You cannot believe how happy I am not having to develop for Explorer [face_dancing]

    FireFox

    Though on the very rare occasion I go somewhere that FireFox doesn't work I use Safari.

    I use mainly Firefox, sometimes - like now - also Opera and occasionally Chrome or even Safari. I don't touch IE.
