Hello everyone.

What browser/s do you use and why do you use it?

I currently use Firefox because it's a bit secure, and because of the variety of add-ons.

I tried switching from Firefox to Chrome for about two months... But the bookmarks and lack of menu - I couldn't take it any longer.

Firefox!

Firefox, FTW. I started using it for security and tabbed browsing, and I absolutely detest IE now. I still can't get my husband to switch, though. Something about teaching an old dog new tricks.

I use FF on my desktop and Google Chrome on the lappy. I do occasionally use IE because I seem to have better luck watching shows on abc.com with IE then I do with FF, Im not sure why.

I've tried a bunch others just for the sake of trying them but these are the two I keep going back to. :)

FIREFOX

I used Google Chrome for about one day and then never really went back to it. I mainly switched from IE7 to Firefox because of the spell checker and the option to save tabs from a previous session. Then I found out about all the security holes in IE :)

Firefox 3 with Adblock Plus (with the EasyList, EasyElement and EasyPrivacy subscriptions). Occasionally IE for IE-only sites, that's it. Tried Chrome, just didn't like it, especially the lack of AdBlock ability.

I was used to FF 2... but since it's no longer being updated I had to migrate to FF 3. I'm fine with it :)
Firefox is the only browser I use! Along with the awesome noscript add-on

Firefox all the way.

But sometimes i also use IE to watch videos. Firefox sometimes lags up or has problems loading the videos.

Before i switched to broadband, i would use AOL. Then i switched over to IE...but my brother downloaded Firefox and said it was better. I never used it though. But now that i have this annoying malware/virus thing happening with IE and Firefox...back to AOL i go until it's resolved. And goodness, AOL is even slower than i remembered :)

I might soon. I'm also beta testing AVG on that machine and I don't want the change to influence the results. :)
