What browser do you use?


Ok, firstly apologies to everyone if a thread like this already exists, but WHT is so slow that I can't perform any searches.

This is just a quick poll to see which browser you guys use. I use Firefox 1.5.0.4, have IE installed on my computer but it doesn't see much use except when checking if a web page renders correctly. According to google analytics for my sites around 60% of the users also use FireFox. Anyone have differing stats?

Over to you

IE6. Sure I've used group policy to tweak it a lot in terms of security network wide, but it works perfectly.

I never thought I'd switch over to another browser, IE did everything I needed it to do, but I like the tabbed browsing feature of Firefox, it allows multiple pages to be surfed and each tab loads quicker compared to opening a new window in IE. Speed and tabbed browsing forced me to switch over

I use Opera. You couldn't ask for more now that Opera 9 has been released -- It's stable, secure and full of features. It's simply in a class of its own.

I could only pick one


IE 7 -- normall use (flash disabled)

FireFox -- pages with flash

Opera -- pages with flash. Also testing new opera... it is ok so far.

Safari -- On Mac safari works well.

Downloading Opera to check it out - if I don't like it, I'll blame you Paul for making me waste 5 mins of my life

Edit: Is there a way to bring the tabs below the main toolbar?

You'll never fully appreciate its glory in five minutes of use. But its promise should be apparent right away

My reasons for loving Opera:
1. Magic Wand
2. Integrated email client as a sidebar and browser tab (integration is beautiful!)
3. F12 toggles (plug-ins, javascript, java, audio, cookies, etc.)
4. Screen zoom
5. Love the skins

There are other, but five seemed like a nice, round number. Everyone who makes the switch has their own reasons for adopting Opera and never going back. Maybe you'll find yours

Where's Opera?

I use IE7, Firefox, and Opera.

Also, I just introduced a friend to Opera yesterday and he loved it.

I'm not certain. You can position most elements practically anywhere on the screen, but I'm not sure about the stacking order. I've personally found that defaults are great. Remember, it's Opera, not Firefox. Taking Opera and trying to turn it into Firefox, you might as well just use Firefox See if you don't grow accustomed to the layout with a little use.
