No contest FF. What about the other browsers though?

I think you'll find here around 70% FF, 5% IE, 10% chrome 2% Safari, 13% Opera.

Just a guess. :p

Would use IE but since IE7 Pro doesnt work with IE8 (well some say it does, but it doesnt work properly). So I've made FF the default browser

Thats part of the problem with IE.(if you put a few measures in)and it is not secure even
then .FF needs no measures.It is secure right up front.

FF out of those 2, hands down.

I've played around with Chrome & Opera, and while they're OK, I haven't found a compelling reason to change from FF.

Firefox, just because I need 2 firefox only add-ons to be able to view PressF1, otherwise I'd probably use Chrome or Safari.

Would have chosen chrome if it was on there but still use ff to access PF1 to disable google ads

IE8 is OK.

Biggest issue with IE originally for me, was that in previous versions tabs took forever to open, and the whole browser didn't have a "fluid" enough feel.

I usually have at least 20+ tabs open, so its quite a biggie.

Still, just can't live without my Firefox addons. :D

Chrome

quicker than the rest and not as much clutter on the interface as FF or IE.

Thats one reason why I use Firefox, because I can multiple tabs in on Firefox. And the fact that Firefox is more customizable than Internet Explorer, you can add all sorts of addons.

Hey All, Firefox has a lot more to offer than Internet Explorer does. Not only does Firefox come with several search engines preloaded, but it also allows you to download other applications that can be used with your browser.I've been using firefox since it's first beta, and it's taken off like a while fire.

FF, first thing I do on a windows install is install firefox so any other software to download will be a painfree process

Is it just me or does IE 6-8 crash on first startup? Ive had it like the last 4 Windows installs

Something is probably stuffed or corrupt on the cd. If it does it everytime you reinstall
