Firefox 3. I usually run with 10-20 tabs open at a time and the Tab Mix Plus plugin is invaluable for making them work the way I want them to work.

Love Chrome. Fast, quick.
although Firefox is beginning to Bloat, but I use it as the go to/most compliant browser when something wont work in Chrome.

Safari just works. nothing special

I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would use IE

I've tried all of these browsers and my favorite is still IE9. It's just so fast, simple and very compatible with the most websites than any other browser. I absolutely despise FireFox, however. The interface looks awful and I can't stand how it manages downloads. Chrome is impressive, but I found the scrolling to be too fast, and the interface to be rather ugly. It's too white/bland looking.

The one I'm used to, Firefox, despite its defects, which are simply different from the the equally defective alternatives. I tried Chrome, and saw no reason to change.

iRider has been and continues to be the very best browser for the past 15 years. It was never free but it was the best $30 I ever spent on anything computer-related. It had tabbed browsing years before anyone else did and it still implements them much better than any other browser. The click-ahead feature was a Godsend back when the internet was slow. Today other browsers have copied most of irider's innovations and some of its features are broken by Windows7 but I still think it is the best browser. It will be a sad day when I am finally forced to give it up for a lesser browser. Sadly, the company finally closed down earlier this year so it is only a matter of time before it becomes obsolete. Hopefully by then another browser will have evolved to the level of irider to take its place.

Isn't iRider built from IE? It still shares the security flaws and awful cookie handling that IE is plagued with.

Firefox, I like the security features that come with the program and I also like how when you type a letter in the URL box, all the results come down.

Google Chrome is okay too, but doesn't have the security features FF has, nor does it give you results by typing in a letter in the URL box. I've also had problems with GC loading pages too, but other than that, it's decent.

Difference for me is addons, Firefox has a few that I've gotten used to having around.

I've decided to use Chrome on my work PC, to update myself with it's new features and whatnot. I am happy so far with it. It has Adblock, which was the most important element to me. It also has the whole chrome appstore thing, which is cool. Free angry birds FTW
