Not on the phone on your PC's or macs.

IE is way to slow for me and is unusable imo.

Chrome is what i always use and currently use but its been on a crash course lately. and wont open up some website.

Mozilla is not bad, but haven't used it in a while


I want to know about Browsers that maybe i haven't heard of but are just as good. I know of Opera browser and used it once back in that day. are there any other ones out their you guys wanna chime in on.


Thanks guys/gals.


ENJOY THE REST OF THE NBA SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

I know it's the wrong answer, but I use Firefox, with a whole bunch of add-ons too.
Works well for me. I also have Chromium, but rarely use it.

There's no wrong answer at all here, i want to know your guys full opinion on what to use. I like appearance just as much as ability to get what i need done. Opera seems out the picture for me already, it can't even load twitter.com correctly.

I used to be a Firefox user but switched to Chrome a little while ago...
Definitely no going back now. FF is a resource hog...

I use Chrome on everything. But I use Firefox to download large files because Chrome likes to randomly cancel them when I'm downloading them.

Exactly the same here. Longtime FF user, until a friend suggested I try Chrome for a week. It took a day or two to get used to, but I wont go back!

Chrome is just too minimal for me. It only fits so many bookmarks in the toolbar, I can't seem to find an equivalent to the Foxtab addon to hide my tab bar and switch tabs with a shortcut button, etc etc. I have 4 or 5 FF add-ons that I just can't live without.

I tried with Chrome, there just doesn't seem to be any way to make it how I want it to be.
FF definitely is a resource hog, but that's not a huge deal to me. I'm not usually one to have more than 3 or 4 tabs open at a time anyways, so it never comes close to bogging down even my old Dell Dimension.

I don't mind using more of my computer's resources for the sake of convenience, ease of use, and appearance, but I can appreciate that others want a fast, light weight browser with a clean appearance that simply does its job and does it well. Chrome definitely is that.
