I use firefox. I have tried to move over to chrome ,but the addons and the familiarity kept me staying with firefox as chrome never felt right to move to.

I use Firefox. I use to use IE, then I tried Chrome, didn't like Chrome. Had trouble getting it off my puter too. I downloaded the latest Firefox, it looks just like IE, didn't like it, so I went back to the older version... :blink:

I am using Firefox and have been for around 3 or4 months now. Previous to that I tried Chrome for around 3 or 4 months. Previous to that was always Internet Explorer. I happy with both Chrome and Firefox over IE if I am honest, but may check out IE9 as apparently it gives the most space to the webpage although I have seen some poor reviews. Nothing better than checking out for ourselves though.

I use IE8 for the bulk of my internet, but I do occasionally use FireFox. I am pretty excited to check out IE9 though.

I've used Firefox for several years now and am firmly entrenched there. I tried out Chrome a long time ago, but wasn't all that impressed.

I am using Firefox as my default browser for years, because it has some features which i think are quite useful for a safe browsing, and also some tools are quite useful for the surfing.

Those option buttons for the vote is the wrong way to go. I use IE 8, 9, and Firefox 4, all about equally.

Some features of Internet Explorer are easier to use than the comparable ones in Firefox; but really, I like both. For file downloading and for Favorite Places (called "Bookmarks" in Firefox), I really am more comfortable with Internet Explorer - both versions 8 and 9.

My attempt at downloading Chrome several weeks ago did not work, so I could not try Chrome.

I wish I could give my votes, but I cannot if I must use the option buttons to choose only one browser. I must be allowed to vote for BOTH IE and Firefox.

I use Firefox and Chrome nearly equally. I use Firefox a little more because it has a few more features I use, but when I need to do some quick research and I don't feel like waiting on tabs to open, I use Chrome.

I started with IE8. It was OK. then I started on Firefox. Nice features, but I dumped it for Chrome, which is now my primary browser. I won't use Firefox again because it is a ram hog.

Opera.
On and off I try Firefox and SeaMonkey and still find them more difficult and confusing to use than Opera's site settings.

IE only when I chose to run Microsoft updates.

I use all the above for various reasons except K-Meleon in lieu of Safari. Opera being my default and 'go to' browser.
