Web Browsers

Which web browsers do you use ??

My main browser is FireFox. Others, I have on desk top, are IE8 and Opera..Both are fine, but FireFox is faster for me.

I have been using FF, here lately since the last upgrade, FF has been either very slow or wont load a site at all.
I have been using IE and Safari, depending witch computer Im on at the time.
Im sure I will use FF again

On my work XP laptop, I use Safari. It's fast and reliable. I used to use FF, but it bogged after the last few updates; too slow, too bug-ridden. I also have IE, but it can't interpret valid HTML worth a d*mn.

On my Linux box, I mostly use Opera but sometimes I use FF. Opera is fast and does everything I need, highly configurable, solidly reliable...

The Pale Moon Project homepage

It's Firefox, only custom built for newer OSes so that it's faster. They basically dropped support for every OS but Vista and 7 to keep it streamlined. It's noticeably faster and has everything Firefox has.

I'm going to check that out.

I use both Firefox and Chrome.

Firefox is good for the ability to have tools such as "no script" and "ad block". I would not use IE, in part because I normally use Linux and because Micro$quish tends to have more security issues.

Go Chrome or Go Home!

Chrome is as responsive as Firefox was before Firefox became as bloated as IE. I use it for almost everything but our corporate M$ stuff that requires IE for the full functionality.
