Web Browser?

Postby dcs on Thu Oct 18, 2012 11:11 am

Hello all,
Just wondering what Web Browser you use and why? Been looking through the new to find that Google Chrome seems to be the better browser for a number of reasons so have installed it to try it out! What do you use?

Firefox too. A lot of my friends swear by chrome, but I find it confusing.

Honestly, try all of them. It's usually down to personal opinion... I'm on Firefox myself.

I converted to Waterfox a while back and haven't looked back since
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but I'm currently on Firefox.

Opera.
Firefox is slow. Chrome is a spyware.

Firefox, have been using it for years and don't see any reason to try something else ;)

Use to use Firefox as the main browser, but it started constantly crashing so I've moved to Google Chrome.

For the IE stuff at work I use IE Tab 2 which works for nearly all of the outdated pages/software that needs IE in my case. :)

I've bounched around between Firefox, Opera and Chrome.
I started off on firefox. Every single patch/update that came out just seemed to make the thing crash more so I jumped off that onto Opera. No real complaints in all honesty, It just felt...Odd. Can't explain why but it just did.
Onto Chrome now though and I'm loving it :)

I use IE. Never had any issues with it. I barely surf the web so no point downloading something different.
