    Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    Which web browser do you typically use and why, if you have a reason?

    Firefox, 'cause i have all these useful add-ons and stuff, and i dont want to have to go to the effort of trying to see if they're on another browser.

    Firefox.

    I don't see a sane reason to use anything else.

    Re: Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    Firefox, Chrome, Safari.

    Firefox: OS X

    Chrome: Windows 7, Sometimes OS X

    Safari: OS X

    I am lately finding myself dissatisfied with Firefox, but I am not certain if Chrome (on OS X, mind you) suffers from the same memory leak hell I go through with Firefox. Today, after leaving 3 windows with about, 30 tabs on for a day or so (most of which was text for research), I discovered to my amazement that it was taking a whopping 1+ GB of ram.

    I agree. My favorite add-ons are:
    NoScript to block any unwanted downloads
    AniWeather because it's one of the best weather checkers I've found
    Download Statusbar for easy downloading
    Googlepedia for quick references to Wikipedia when using Google (check it out. Very handy)
    Stumble Upon because it's amazing (IE users should try it too)
    FastestFox... it's a little glitchy but it's still useful for looking up words I do not know the meaning of

    I also love how Firefox checks your spelling. Not sure if the other browsers do that too?

    Combined they make web browsing a breeze

    You're right! I just checked mine, and with 9 windows with... hell I must have 50 tabs up (also used for research) I'm using 1.13GB of ram. Wow I never noticed that. Well I'm off to close some!

    I use the newest version of Internet Explorer. I always hear people talk about how Firefox is so much better but I have yet to find anything that it does that the current version of Internet Explorer doesn't do. Granted, I'm aware it stole most of its current features from Firefox.

    Re: Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    I use Chrome.

    It's much faster than Firefox and it's as simple as you could ever ask for. The spellchecker needs a little work and sometimes websites dont recognize it (which is rare), but it's a great browser.

    Re: Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    I used IE when I was young and naive and didn't care.

    I migrated to Firefox when I heard about how great it was. Barely any pop-ups, faster, and therefore relatively safer

    I recently switched to Google Chrome. It is much cleaner than IE and Firefox, and it seems like its very "to the point," as if its giving you the bare minimums, and thats really what makes it better. The first time I saw it, the first thing I thought was "my, this is very clean, its a very clean browser."

    - no top bar explaining what you are looking at
    - literally only 7 buttons on the top (excluding the close/minimize/maximize)
    - no bottom bar showing the web address of where you are or what's loading all the time
    - provides the MOST possible screen space compared to IE and Firefox
    - has a cool name ...

    Re: Which Web Browser Do You Use?

    I use firefox.

    I can't stand IE, because it's slower than crap, and buggy as hell.

    I tried Chrome, and it was alright, but I'm familiar with firefox and saw no real reason to switch.
