So guys, what browser do you use? I'm thinking the majority will be Firefox. Here's a topic to generally discuss browsers and stuff.

I use Google Chrome and don't remember who recommended it to me. It's very simplistic but does have add-ons like Firefox. Its compatibility and usefulness is at about the same level as Firefox, but for me it's faster. Also, I like the design.  Here's the site, go try it!

I also use Firefox when I need to, and IE when I'm forced to. Although I really don't like IE. What do you guys think?

Mainly, Chrome and Firefox. I also use other browsers, but that is to test if a website i am working on is working and is coming out the same in that browser.

FF. During some time I used Chrome because I had problems with FF, and I hated it. Not at the grade of IE, but IMO, theres nothing link FF

Opera all the way. :] I used to use FF all the time, but when Opera 10 came out, I just couldn't NOT use it and now it's become my main browser. It's fast, compact, and the viewing window is HUGE! Chrome is fast too but at random times it will decide to not load a page, which is really annoying. And FF is now too bulky and slow for me to care about.

I have always used Internet Explorer. It's what I grew up using and it's what I'm used to. About last week though, I downloaded Firefox and I realized how much more tools it has. I am in a transition period right now I guess; I try to use Firefox when I remember, but I often open Internet Explore by habit which is why I'm using it right now.

I use Opera on the extremely rare occurences that I use the Wii's Internet Channel (probably once or twice in the last 18 months). I use it a lot on my DSi though.

I use FireFox 99.99% of the time.

The other .01% is me using Internet explorer.

Mainly Opera, or others if testing websites (which isn't often any more :(). If I for some reason would have to choose another browser, I'd probably go with Chromium/Chrome.

I've also stripped down the UI of Opera, so this is what it looks like for me:

(Though usually with a whole lot more tabs; I like only seeing the favicons.)

I used to use Internet Explorer when I was a total computer noob. Then someone introduced me to the magic of Firefox and I used that until version 3.6 came out and started using all of my computer's memory and CPU. Now, I use Chrome because it's a nice, light-weight browser that's fast and has some add-ons so you can customize it. I use Firefox very rarely on occasions when I'm testing something though.

Opera users unite!  8) I can't resist the Z1-Glass theme. Looks great using Aero.  ;D

I used to use Firefox, but it just got to the point where its memory leak was so bad that I couldn't use it. So I went to Chrome. It's pretty good. I could do without its glitches in randomly not wanting to load a page. But it's the only browser that is good with extensions that I can use. Really I can't use the internet without the Web of Trust extension.

Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Oprea

I used IE before it froze my computer (and it keeps on freezing my computer every time I use IE)

Firefox usually, Opera if I need the IRC software, and sometimes Chrome. Ironically, Chrome refuses to load Gmail nine times out of ten.

Whoa, I thought it was only me that would have that problem... D: But it's not only gmail that it does it to, Chrome will not want to load random pages. Ah well.

Actually, the new updates to Firefox 3.6.9 or whatever it is now, are not bad. It's decently fast. I've been using it more since it doesn't seem to hog my CPU all the time now. Chrome is still nice, though.

Firefox, with 19 addons (plus LittleFox) at last count (...that is, just now), stuff I can't see being able to replace easily with anything else any time soon.  I use Midori or Chromium to test stuff I'm working on, or when other people want me to look something up (so that I'm not logged in at various places), or just to see how they're getting along every now and then.

Opera on Wii, Safari on iPhone, Chrome on computer.
