I use Google Chrome most of the time, but for other kinds of features that doesn't work with Google Chrome I use Opera.

Which internet browser do you use?

Firefox 99.9% of the time.

Chrome has possibilities and I like many things about it, BUT FF is so customizable with addon's, and give a huge amount of control, especially security wise. NoScript, which gives total control of sites that employ Java script. If a site can execute Java on your computer by you simply going to the site, they can control your computer, and you will never suspect what is going on.

Firefox predominantly - about 95% of the time, except for some reason it doesn't play CNN news videos. So I will open IE just for that reason. (Sometimes I use IE for Microsoft-specific sites, such as updates and occasionally email.) I'll use Opera if I want to play online games, because it seems to go much faster.

IE7 64 bit. I've been trying out a new one I found, the lightest one I've found yet, beats firefox size wise by a longshot (664KB download), and seems to be faster as well, still rooting through the security settings.

Firefox with NoScript and AdBlock Plus...I have preached it to so many people. It's very secure and like was already mentioned, NoScript is the best add on ever created, followed by AdBlock Plus because no websites I go to have any ads on the pages, or popups. I could not ask for much more, though Firefox has many more add ons to do whatever else you might need!

I use IE 7, and like a die hard MS fan, held out on using Chrome until I tried it out after seeing it installed on my folks computer.

Boy, was I impressed with its speed - and still am!

I installed it on my PC thereafter, and still use it sparingly. I like its previous pages viewed feature, but what I don't like about it is it's lack of a History drop down menu like IE.
If it wasn't for that, I'd be using it as my sole and only browser.
