Sorry if this has already been asked, but was just curious what browser people use (mostly)? IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc...

(My real question is this: is Chrome any more/less secure than Firefox?)

I use Firefox, since it got a lot better since 4 and it has plugins I can't find elsewhere.

And vanilla, who knows? It's probably just a matter of exploits that you can easily avoid by not going to suspicious websites. But I hear there isn't a NoScript for Chrome, so Firefox wins if you want to go that far.

I resisted upgrading Firefox from version 3.x, but since I found out how to make version 11.x look just like the old one without all the stupid tabs and other Chrome-clone BS, I've been a happy camper with it.

I like Firefox and have for years. I started using them as a main browser a few years ago after some problems with IE on my desktop PC. I went back to IE for awhile on my current laptop, just to compare and decided to go back to Fox.

Firefox for me I was a big Mozilla fan years ago and was confused by why the newest version was so horrible (I did not know that AOL had bought the company)

I think I might have spent a year using Safari and then jumped shipped to FF at some stage - have never looked back

Since Mozilla picked up their game after version 4 (and I think it really got better at 9), I've stuck with Firefox throughout everything I use. If I need an alternative browser, I use IE 9

Since Mozilla grabbed their activity after edition 4 (and I think it really got better at 9), I've trapped with Chrome throughout everything I use. If I need an substitute web browser, I use IE 9 :roll:

Been with FF for quite a long time. I like the fact that it's, compared to IE, small, has tons on add-ons, takes contributions from actual users, is very fast.

In the old days, FF was the renegade browser when IE was literally everywhere. IE back then had like a 80% market share. It was nuts back then. Microsoft forcing pc makers to include IE/Windows with their products. FireFox was the people's browser and my loyalty rolls with them and a lot of that has to do with history.

What the future holds??? Who knows but as of today FF is still the king. They really make you feel like YOU are a part of the browser process. Almost intimately with the themes, tabs (which THEY invented btw and of course, IE came out with tabs the following quarter).

Younger people need to do research and learn about how Microsoft became who they are. Not very nice, not very creative and a lot of intellectual theft made them who they are but his thread is not about that.......sorry.

I highly recommend FireFox. It's a great browser that you certainly will feel a part of after you custom tailor it to fit your needs and appearance.

Opera, it packs in a ton of useful features you can't get anywhere else while providing good speed and the lowest memory usage. These features include stuff like the ability to use any search engine from the address bar (press g first for Google, w for Wikipedia, yt for Youtube, etc - you can even add your own) and the best implementation of tabs I've seen, with easy tab previewing and switching features, Opera Turbo, which compresses pages for faster speeds on slow networks, full keyboard control... the list goes on.

Sure, sites pester you all the time about your "outdated browser" when they don't recognize Opera, but that's a small price to pay for such a huge suite of features.
