How long has it been?
What did you migrate from?
Why did you make the move?

How long have I been using it or how long have I been staring at the browser today? I've been using Firefox since the early 2000's with the versions under 1.

I migrated from Internet Explorer.

IE is slow.

Internet Explorer for over a decade.
Netscape
Netscape was no longer a universal browser


I did play with Firefox when it came out but it isn't a universal browser either so I keep it as a backup only.

Firefox primarily on my side rig where I do most of my 'net surfing, forum posting, etc. only because it has the automatic spell check. IE9 on my gaming rig. I prefer Internet Explorer.

I have been using Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox as my usual browser (>95% of the time) since Netscape 3 in 1998. I only use IE when a site won't render right in FF, and I really really really dislike Chrome.

I assume you have to turn on the option, right? I'm just too f-ing lazy to look for it! I just kept using FF since it did it by default :)

Firefox was like app of the decade or something, most highly recommended app or something like that. And I was like cool.

I was using Firefox for a long time, but I recently switched to Chrome. I like it and have been using it for 3 to 4 months now.

Chrome.

I used Opera from around version 6 or so (so far back that it had a free and a paid version, and the free version had a banner ad INSIDE THE BROWSER).

I switched to Firefox when that hit 2.0, then to Chrome around a year ago. Now using Firefox more frequently, as Chrome seems to be crashing more frequently for me.

Chrome convert from Firefox here. Firefox (for me, oodles of people will say this doesn't happen but for me it does) bloats out. Badly. I leave my browser running for days or weeks on end without restarting it. Granted, even Chrome can get a bit "fat" over time, but Firefox has the record. So I switched to Chrome. Chrome also feels faster (placebo of not).

Used FF from the 1.5-ish days (I think) to 3.6, then switched to Chrome 10 and have been on Chrome since. I was also really hung up on the "Smart Bookmarks Bar" (now "Roomy Bookmarks Bar" or something) for Firefox--Chrome now has a similar addon so the switch was easier.
