Which browser do you use

Postby Stephen K » Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:13 pm

The primary browser I used to use was Firefox but switched to Chrome which I find to be slick and fast.

I've used Firefox for years now, at first it was a nice change, now I'm just used to it and so I don't want to change!

IE8 - because it was there.

Opera, because it has built-in email, and is extremely easy to customise.

Switched from Firefox to Chrome 3 months ago and haven't looked back as Chrome is so much faster.

Indeed, but thus far no RSS :(

Chrome primary, FF secondary.

Chrome at home, IE at work.

I got onto Chrome early and love it. I don't like or want much schmanciness, so enjoy its streamlined stylings.

I have tried both IE and Firefox... and Google Chrome so far is my favorite. It's simple and fast.

Opera mini on my phone primarily, or Skyfire if someone posts a video in a thread (flash support on a mobile phone browser? Oh yes!). I rarely use a PC for the internet nowadays, but if for some reason I have to I use firefox just because it's there (linux, it's an old PC)
