    Re: Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    I was a faithful Firefox user until Chrome came out.

    The only issues I had with Firefox is that it was a hog - Chrome is streamlined, non-cluttered, quick and I absolutely love it.

    I've tried Opera and wasn't that impressed after multiple page freezes and sporadic shut downs... it was like a mini- IE.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I used Chrome for awhile but it was very unstable so I went back to Firefox.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    I use firefox, the reason is add ons. Ad block plus, image zoom, video download helper and a build in spell checker. On my old computer it was because firefox worked faster than IE.

    Chrome. Use to be a big firefox fan, but after Chrome came out that changed. Chrome is so much faster than all other browsers (I dont count Safari or Opera as browsers!!!), plus with the new add-on possibilities then there is no real reason to go back to firefox even though they fixed the speed issue in the new 3.6 release.

    My only grip with Chrome is Adobe Flash/Shockwave. Chrome is not 100% supported by Adobe yet and that does give problems if you dont have the latest releases of said plug-ins. The only issue I have now is once in a while if I have a lot of flash running, then the cursor poofs when the mouse is not being moved. Hope they fix it soon but considering Adobe never admits anything wrong with their products then well.. But that is why some bright mind has created an IE plugin which means you can run an IE window in Chrome when you need too.

    Switched from Firefox to Chrome. It's faster, uses less resources, and has a larger screen area. I added a theme skin, but I plan on keeping it lean and fast.

    I voted FF because I had to choose one, but at work I use FF, IE and Opera all at the same time.

    I need to be able to log into the same server under multiple IDs.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Firefox. I love the add-ons, but it is definitely a resource hog.

    I can't imagine doing without the privacy add-ons.
