    * Web Browsers

    I am still amazed by how many people are using IE. What browser are you all using the most?


    Firefox.

    I use Firefox, but that's because my kids prefer that one and they're on here more than me, so... I, personally, like Opera the best. Dunno why.

    Firefox has my vote. I like the add-ons and the speed.

    Until Chrome gets good addon support (with a ported Firebug!), I'll be using Firefox.

    Currently using Firefox...but I almost always end up right back at Safari.

    Firefox gets so bloated it's ridiculous, and though Safari can be a memory hog...it's really really fast.

    I've tried them all and Firefox is the only one I have been happy with. It has the master password and that's one thing I look for in a browser, along with the many add-ons.

    Safari for me on OS X, Chrome on Windows.

    I was using FF for the longest time on Windows, but Chrome is just so much faster, and doesn't crash as often.

    I still use IE on my Windows based systems.

    Prior to IE7 I did use FireFox, but I find IE7 and IE8 are pretty good security and performance wise.

    Curious, do you know that all the benchmarks show that IE7 and IE8 are the worst performing of all modern browsers.

    I don't think a benchmark is necessary to come to that conclusion, lol. It's pretty obvious from the start.

    Speed and add-on point of view Firefox is nice and It is my first choice.

    Not exactly, because most of the benchmarks measure javascript performance, and what does pretty much every modern website use a ton of?

    And its only going to get worse with HTML5.

    Actually, IE8 outperforms Firefox and Chrome 2 in render tests (i.e. it will render Google.com, nytimes.com quicker)

    I used multiple browsers depending on which system Im playing with at the time.. but professionally I utilize Firefox.
    With add-ons such as;
    Tree Style Tabs
    ReloadEvery
    FireGestures
    Aging Tabs
    Find in Tabs


    I would have to say 'FireGestures', 'Find In Tabs', and 'Tree Style Tabs' I have found to be irreplaceable. I can find one word out of 150 open tabs, while managing them all seamlessly.

    I use FF the most but sometimes I use Chrome or Safari. I like the Top Sites view in Safari but I've had some problems with memory. I'm in FF right now but loaded Safari and it seems to be loading pages faster. There's just no way I'd go back to using IE even though I like my Windows 7.

    SeaMonkey (old Mozilla port), followed by Firefox. I find FF or one of the plugins I have installed has a memory leak and becomes unresponsive and bogs the whole system if I leave it running for very long. Not a slow system by any means, either.
    Opera to check things that might have surprises, as it's easy to disable js and all that before visiting. Chrome is ok, but I still don't completely trust Google so rarely use it. A number of other browsers to test designs in. IE? Testing and Windows updates only.
    Having problems, or maybe questions about WHT? Head over to the help desk!

    +1 for Google Chrome.

    I love it, but before I used it I used FireFox.

    Opera is one of my faviourite browser. I have been using it for over 6-7 years. This is out of the box browser (having download manager, Wand, 5 Star Mail client, Bittorrent support etc etc.)

    I have been using 4 browsers on daily basis.. Opera, Firefox, Chrome and IE 8 for different purpose

    I love IE. I think I used to be in Denial about it's backseat position to Firefox.

    Having recently installed a new LiveChat script on our website, I can see the numbers are heavily favored towards FF now. Makes me sad

    I love my IE!

    I've always used Firefox. So many useful addons such as Firebug!

    Firefox.

    I have absolutely no quams with IE. I never had issues with it, and any **** ups I did, were easily rendered fixed, obviously unlike some.

    Though the multi-tabs on FF got me hooked and when IE added tabs, I was just so hooked to FF that I didn't bother to return

    Mac is available on Windows as well. Seems good to me.. however, I have never worked on Mac so I can't comment.

    IE, as I am accustomed to it and only sometimes use Firefox due to its faster speed and greater security.
