Preferred Web Browser

Featured 23561 Views 559 Posts On the Internet
A bit of a generic question but my curiosity has gotten the better of me. So as the title suggest what web browser do you prefer to use? IE, FireFox, Safari, Google Chrome or Opera.

Personally I stick with FireFox because I like the feel of it and it hasn't given me any dramas since I started using it. On occasion I'll fire up IE to check some coded work because I've noticed IE to be more fussy with code errors.
Firefox hasn't let me down although i was hesitant to make the switch from IE a few years back, whats chrome like?
Used to love Netscape in the past, since it died I switched to Opera for a few years and now on Chrome. Tried others like Maxthon, Safari, Firefox, Lunascape but didn't stick with them.

Also have IE 9 Beta which actually runs quite well...

Just installed FF4 last night because I did a fresh install, feels a little disorientation coming from the previous version. I'm yet to try my plugins so I'm hoping they all work as well.
Every plug-in that I have tries has worked except for one, the australian dictionary.
FF4 Looks a bit neater compared to the old one I reckon.

Good to know and I'm used to the dictionary underlining "colour"
I use Chrome, but it isn't my preferred browser.
My screenshot add-on hasn't implemented use of the add-on bar =(
LOL, IE's always left out.
Thought I'd post this in this thread:

I'm just old, there's a difference :P
I'm to set to move from FireFox now.

I use Chrome as a secondary bowser though if I need to be logged into a site twice or something.
safari for me.. I'll never use Firefox ever again
I use rockmelt. Its integration with lots of extra services makes it my favourite.

Sometimes happens to me and for some reason embedded YouTube videos no longer work for me.
I gave Chrome a really good run again recently a I'd previously only tried it when it was new so didn't give it much of a chance. Sadly my return fared little better. The bugs were gone so you can use it for sure, but it didn't really do anything to make me stick with it. It just annoyed me and didn't give me a reason to switch from firefox. My computer and internet are both very fast so this sluggishness people speak of just isn't there.

chrome is very slimmed down. IE and firefox have alot of other menus and features alot of people never use.

is it the extras that firefox has that u like?
