I use FF. Had it a while and only began using it daily after a still-not-removed virus attached itself to IE.
I was thinking of alternatives - Google Chrome, Opera. Anyone use browsers other than IE or FF? Likes, dislikes?
I would stay with FF...I have been using various browsers for a while and FF always seems to be the best...
I like FF. Faster and user-friendly. I usually use it to browser and work online. Another browser is Google Chrome. It is also good, simple and fast.
I use Chrome and think its great. Fast and uncluttered, it still manages to remember all your visited sites so that inputting just one letter sometimes is enough to bring your chosen site up. It also works really well with the google keyword tool (unsurprisingly). Fewer button presses to research the competition. Best of all, it remembers all the sites you had open in tabs when you shut the computer for the night (or crash - whichever comes first) and one button click will reopen them all.
Firefox is my preferred browser.
I do use IE occassionally, generally just because the icon is there and sometimes I click without thinking.
Firefox for all the specialized work
Opera for just speedy web browsing
IE is a museum piece
Chrome is just redundant for my needs, not as fast as Opera not as customizable as Firefox.
Ryan - neat? How very american of you lol!
Izzy I was thinking of Chrome. I'n trying to find a way of moving a little faster on the 'net when I'm online. My ISP is abysmal at best and will remain so for the foreseeable future. FF is great TBH - I was just wondering if another browser loaded faster, despite T-Mobile moving as fast as next ice-age
rebekah - FF with a verizon FIOS connection? I don't have a scooby re FIOS
I use IE, FF, and Opera.
As for the FIOS - it's a fiber optic connection from communications monopolist here in the USA.
Cheers Miash and sunforged. I had Opera, eons ago and always liked it. I'm thinking it may be a good bit better than it was back then
Gosh Misha I'm so sorry! Been in court a longggggg time today and the pomp, circumstance and bloody cross examining drained me beyond belief
You weren't the defendant were you frogpoop?
If you were a witness then expect a suspended sentence or a supervision order, those damn prisons are full!
lol I was a witness. They ought to reconsider the system. Marching into a courtoom, full of people, defendants openly hating your presence, their family and friends not too far behind them, is no fun.
And I don't care how truthful, how honest or careful the lawyers are - they do try put words in your mouth.
No supervision orders for me. Y.O.T. don't want me on their books for one. I don't like them and don't mind telling them why. And I'm wayyyyy tooo nice for prison
Cheers mtsi - using ff and now have Opera. Kinda weird, it's changed a heck of lot!
Edit - don't know why there are two of ryans quotes. I can only see one. Maybe Hubpages likes him so much they want him to echo?
Edit #2 - removed the ryan echo. Weird. Not ryan - the echo
Oh I don't want it as a primary browser, just a secondary. It does the job
I have tried numerous versions of IE, FF, Opera, Chrome, and K-Meleon. My favorite is Chrome, followed by Opera. The reason I never use FF now, because it is just way too clutterd, and recently kept on crashing. FF used to be the fastest, but not any more.
I use FF for hub editing/publishing.
But I use IE for everything else, including hub viewing; so as to be sure that all our IE visitors are able to view my hubs.
Yep, yep I agree with most Fire Fox seems to be the best I have tried IE, Safari, Opera etc & as far as user friendly & usability FF is best!
FF is the best browser. It have many Add-ons that very useful for my needed. I think it is also fast browser, and easy to use. I never experience a crash while use it. It also give me nice themes. Actually, I use 2 browser, FF and chrome, but I more frequent use FF than chrome.
FireFox also FD...
Besides you can customize it completely with some pretty hot looking Frogs that won't flirt with you in front of the hubby!
The Mozilla-based Flock.
Firefox add-ons and extensions work. You can all thank me later!
Firefox is great, obviously. I use Google Chrome the most now though.
When I am making hubs I love using Google Chrome, easy to navigate and a lot less typing with it.
I use Google chrome, it has new and updated extensions and works fine and faster for broad applications. Great browser.
Stick with Forefox and if you want to try some another browser then go for Chrome
I have FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and (in a VM) IE.
I use Chrome for most of my daily work but use the others for special tests and to check my web pages when I make major layout changes.
Is google chrome allowing you guys to go into adsense? For some reason I have to open up Internet Explorer to check.
Been like this for 3-4 days now for me.
samesurf is a great browser to use. You can surf the web on your own or with your friends. It's still in the beta version though.
I think Firefox is great, but I generaly use the browser most of the visitors to my webste are using (IE) for the very reason that if it isn't working well, I want to know right away.
am using Chrome... and FF too. i think both are fine but i feel more easier with Chrome...
I use Chrome for most things at home.
I use firefox for most things at work.
I never use IE!
Opera is nice for Widgets and on my phone. It is my primary browser on my phone without a doubt. I rarely use it on the PC
I use Firefox and Chrome equally. Firefox won't view video (on HubPages), so I use Chrome for that. Chrome doesn't like to load photos (on HubPages) so I use Firefox for that. Others have no problems with either.
Dumped IE a few years ago.
Love them both, though Chrome is a tad faster, ad some of the Firefox add-ons slow it down a lot.
Opera Browser is speedy and secured.
Fire Fox is truly a workforce, I use it a lot. Using both make surfing quite interesting.
Opera mobile or Bolt mobile browser
Until I read a comment from PCU remarking on the slowness of FF, I used FF and IE. Immediately after that, I started noticing how slow FF is. I also began to have issues with it freezing up.
Now I use Chrome. Very fast, very streamlined, but I miss certain handy buttons that aren't there.
And of course I still use FF for it's many plug-ins, and as another poster commented, IE because the darned icon is just so familiar.
I'm on satellite but the connection isn't that fast. I've used FF for awhile b/c it seems to be faster.
I tried out the FF Beta version & it worked OK but I couldn't get "History" to remember any visited sites.
After reading the preceding posts, I think I'll give Chrome a try.
Chrome is very fast, easy and awesome! I'd definitely go for Chrome any day!: D
I say you'll deffo like this one: http://www.doogle.org/ !
This is all we use in Ireland.
I'm using Firefox at the moment. It does OK but on some of the facebook apps the kids use it seems to freeze for a while. I've tried Chrome in the last few days and that seems faster, certainly on most of the sites I visit such as news sites.
I think the answer is 'it depends', have a few browsers. I certainly have problems with some forum sites with IE with sections of the site just not appearing, firefox works for them OK.
It's as much down to the skill of the web site writer. Have several browsers and if one fails, swap to the other for that site.
Using Chrome at the moment, although its very robust and quick to load up, have had some caching issues with it that requires clearing the cache more often then with firefox.

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 ?

Do you believe Chrome is no more a reliable browser for our computers?Since some months, after the major changes done by Google, my computer is experiencing recurring problems and glitches in loading websites and files.
