Which browser do you use the most and/or which is your favourite?
I have 3 different browsers installed on my computer (Firefox, Internet explorer and Chrome) and I use all 3, but my favourite which is I use the most is Mozilla Firefox.
What about you?
Chrome is super fast and I like it very much. Foxfire is good too but also has too many add on's which takes up a lot of space on the memory. Regular Explorer is good too, but chrome is my favorite.
I also have Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer installed on my computer.
I use Chrome with No extensions, for speed. I use Firefox with a lot of extensions/plugins/add-ons for more functionality. I hardly touch IE, except for when I need to reference something or compare a website.
In my humble opinion, Google Chrome has been the best browser for me. I've tried them all and have never had any problem with google chrome.
I've been using Chrome a lot. Firefox seems to crash more than chrome. I don't like the tracking stuff on chrome though.
At the moment, I have Safari, Firefox and Google Chrome installed on my computer. I have to say Chrome gets used the most because it is by far the fastest browser. Firefox has the most add ons at the moment, but Chrome is building up a portfolio. I use Firefox sometimes to use certain add ons. Safari goes largely unused on my computer because it just doesn't suit me.
My favorite browser is Opera works impressively faster comparing with all famous ones.For SEO I use FireFox-the best one for this purpose.Google's chrome is the big disappointment for me,crashes often and on the top of it moves with snail's speed
I use Safari 90% of the time (Mac-head here), but I have Firefox for running Greasemonkey scripts, and Google Chrome for when Safari is acting up.
my favorate is google chorme.....i has plugins.i love it totally....easy to use
I use Google Chrome. It has been the best for me in terms of speed and functionality. I used Firefox at one point but found it crashed too often and IE was just horrible.
I too have tried them all and have settled with Chrome. It rarely crashes and is quick enough to suit my needs. From reading the comments here it seems all the browsers have their pro's and con's but what appears to be universal is that everyone's shuns internet explorer or classes it as their least favourite.. 'Microsoft' you need to buck your ideas up!
I use Google Chrome for almost everything. The only time I need to use Internet Explorer is when I need to access my college email since for some odd reason Chrome doesn't support it. Google Chrome is easily the fastest browser out there.
Google Chrome, pretty much exclusively now both at work and at home. I also have Chrome on my iPhone now as I always thought the built-in Safari browser was pretty bad.
I use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Both are very stable and share many very handy extensions.
I rarely use Internet Explorer or Safari. Both seem a little out dated compare to the ones I use.
I have Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google chrome.
I use Google chrome but lately am having trouble with Adobe flash player that is part of the Google chrome application. When I go to full screen video slows down in the audio breaks up.
When I use Firefox with an outside Adobe flash player I have no problems. But Firefox is really really slow and cumbersome. I like to know an alternative. Besides, the idea of Google knowing my search criteria drives me up a wall. They know way too much already!
As I am not really a computer whiz I did stick to Internet Explorer for a few years (I was quite young and didn't really understand different browsers) then I moved onto Firefox and it seems excellent compared to IE (but what isn't huh?) and then finally the amazingly fast Chrome, I find Chrome excellent and suitable for all my needs. Very very fast and an amazing library of extensions capable of doing anything. I do have safari on my computer but that is really only as a backup in case Chrome is playing up. I have never tried Opera and to be honest, never really thought about it.
I also love the search function right in the URL bar, I use this all the time and this is definitely my favourite feature.
I use more often Firefox,recently I discover Opera.I think that Opera is faster than Firefox .
I use Chrome the most but my close second is Firefox. I never use Internet Explorer.
I think Google Chrome is faster but for some reason I'm a lot more partial to Firefox.
I absolutely love Chrome! I've tried them all about a year or 2 ago and decided Chrome's simple interface suited me best! From what I understand though, Firefox has made some improvements lately! We use IE sometimes, mostly my boyfriend though. He has all the auto login, auto form filler and "remember my password" features tailored to him on there...I've done the same on chrome! Also, with 'Chrome for Mobile' coming out, it further solidifies my choice!
I often switch between Chrome and Firefox, though I think Chrome is a better choice by a long shot. Firefox works wonderfully as a basic browser, but as far as friendly user interface goes, Chrome seems to be a much better choice. It's far more customizable than Firefox, and it's plain, open box interface is much more practical and faster loading. It's great for gaming, programming and even works wonderfully as an integrated work tool. Fantastic!
I have been using Firefox for years and Netscape before that. I use IE when I have to or to use as a check if Firefox is not working. I tried Chrome early on and was not impressed with it. My computer is fairly old, but well updated--extra ram, second hard drive, separate video card, so I need to try it again.
I've been using Firefox since around 2006, maybe before. I used Opera and Safari for a while. Never used Chrome really. Out of all of these browsers, the fastest would be between Opera and Firefox. Internet Explorer is a RAM hog.
I use Opera & it's my favorite , sometimes I use Firefox.
I never used Chrome but now,after reading all answers, I want to use it.
Definite Google Chrome ... I like it cause it's uncluttered, simple and fast.
I use Opera and Google Chorme. Personally I prefer Opera. IE and Firefox are also in my laptop. In some situation, Firefox is more useful. For example, when I should picking classes on the Internet for the next semester, Firefox is always the stablest browser to log in the course selection system in campus network.
Google Chrome all the way, it's so much faster than IE and I just never really got into FireFox. I used IE most of my life then switched to Chrome probably five years ago because it had most of the things that IE copied off of it to compete.
I use Google Chorme most and it works fine. Firefox crashes frequently.
I use Firefox for most everything. I used to use IE, but for the last few years, IE has been too sluggish and full of other problems. I went back to IE for a few months, when Firefox couldn't download files (but I think the problem was Firefox on Vista -- yuck!).
I also use IE for testing website appearance when I'm developing.
And now, I've added Chrome for work, especially since Chrome is zooming in popularity.
I use chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Chrome is faster the Firefox according to me but Mozilla Firefox work fine.
Firefox - simply because the icon is prettier than the others :-D
I would say that Firefox is my favorite, with Chrome a close second.
Usually I use Firefox and extensions, because most of the sites that I write for are optimized for Firefox. Chrome's speed makes it my favorite browser for research. Then again, sometimes -- but rarely -- a site seems to work better on IE! I hardly ever use Opera and haven't decided whether to uninstall it or give it a try..
I’m currently using Chrome and had used it for quite a long time now. I love the extensions and it loads pretty fast ;D
Wow this is the second time I've hit this question.. Nice graphics..
I've used all of those, Opera I haven't touched in years.. I think the last time I used Open BeOS was still on the market, or maybe its just occupying that part of my memory. Alternative commercial software..
I hate IE, basically hate anything Microsoft. That's a hatred that has built up over decades of watching Microsoft ruin company after company, promising greatness and delivering kludge after kludge. Thank God Steve Jobs, Richard Stallman and Linus Tovalds prevailed and Bill retired.
Firefox has the blood of Netscape in it. Mosaic was the first graphical web browser, but Netscape was the first commercially driven web browser. Microsoft didn't have a web browser for another couple of years. so IE though it dominates the market, has consistently played a game of copy-cat where it's ever trying to own the web, the HTML standard and people's wallets. If you are smart you will not use the IE browser, because it's just another nail in the coffen of consumer freedom. See Microsoft came pretty close to close-sourcing the PC platform with the release of the HD-DVD drive, they were going to wire DRM into the motherboard and the next step would be to disable access to the BIOS and even opening your computer to add memory would be seen as a criminal offense (or at least void your warranty). Microsoft's goal is to do what is good for business, and what is good for business is bad for consumers. So if you care about your freedom to choose, do not use IE for anything if you can help it.
And Safari? That's a Mac browser. I don't know what to say other than it is the, pardon me, gayest browser of the bunch. Supporting well crafted fonts and doesn't seem to do much of anything sexy.

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

I have used all of these and found firefox good, but not as chrome, IE is losing its position. One problem I faced with chrome is, it crashes after sometime...Which one is best ?
by Susan Zutautas 6 years ago
Just curious what browser do you use?I have been using Internet Explorer and just recently have had problems with it. I did a virus scan, a spyware scan, and nothing seemed to work. I could only use IE in add ons disabled mode. At sometime I had downloaded google chrome. Tried it today and it...

Hi Please state your most favorite browser and explain briefly why it is better than others?I still prefer Mozilla Firefox due to wide availability of useful add-ons and high security.

I have always used Internet Explorer and have just dealt with all of its little 'quirks' but I can't take it anymore! I can't even open capsules now or delete any to work on a hub. So how do I change to something different? And what should I change it to? Fairly computer illiterate here so simple...
