FF or Opera. Since theyre the only 2 that save passwords for all the sites I go to. Google and Safari save SOME, but not all. And both rely on IE's settings

It's been ages since we've had a browser poll, for a while there it was once a fortnight!

Firefox all the way. :thumbs:

Don't like the idea of saving passwords. Never have, never will.

Don't trust IE, still think it's slow and nasty and virus prone. Chrome's initial EULA was so preposterous that I didn't even bother installing it after reading it. Google is evil.

FF remind me of the good ol' Netscape days. When it was Navigator vs IE3... I was so ****ing angry when I installed bloody IE4 on my system and it changed everything forever. I miss Navigator. :(

Opera's real nice these days but I've been using primarily Chrome since way back.

Nothing wrong with IE 8. Its fast enough here, when I use it. Pity it doesnt save passwords either. Without a 3rd party program. Only good thing about IE, Google, and Safari, you can block ads, with something like Privoxy

The poll results are very interesting at the moment

3 people are using Internet Explorer 6.0,
1 person is using Internet Explorer 7.0
7 people are Internet Explorer 8.0
And 22 people are using Firefox 3.5 / 3.6

It looks like IE 6.0 is fading away….

wainuitech what other browser are you using?

At a very much slower speed than on FF or Opera

Speedy Gonzales
29-06-2010, 04:32 PM
Nope both are fine here. Altho privoxy is installed, so I probably wont see flash or ads anyway

Firefox. IE is - well, IE, and Chome is too simple.

IE8 can be uninstalled from Windows 7 :D

I tried removing IE, WMP, and OE, using Nlite, and testing it in Virtual PC / XP Mode. Didnt quite work. You'll get an error about running out of virtual ram. Might try again, by removing one by one, to see which one causes the error

You can. I did once. It recreated the IE folder (empty) and one reg entry I had to leave in otherwise weirdness would occur.

But it was a hassle and took forever and why bother? You just leave it there unloved and unused and make your other browser default.

Firefox is the best. Chrome is too simple and badly layed out

Speedy Gonzales

FF has still got bugs / flaws. When 3.6.4 was installed, with some sites, other browsers work fine. Go to the same site with FF, it loads, says done. And the screen is blank. And no matter how many times you refresh, it stays blank

FF - using heaps of memory when kept opened for a prolonged period and crashes sometimes

Chrome - Feels slower than FF and 80% needs a few seconds on resolving hosts...

firefox is still the best browser. i frown upon IE users who have tried firefox but hate it.

How the **** did you manage to lump safari in with other old browser.

I quite like Seamonkey, it's a stripped down Firefox with Thunderbird and Komposer
combined.

I'm using IE8, Firefox 3.6.6 and SRWare Iron (Chromium without all that tracking crap)

Firefox is my primary browser. Adblocking, script blocking and customization is the primary reason.

So true, but thought IE6, 7 and earlier FF might of come under that option

Actually I just upgraded to FF 3.6.6. UI seems ever so slightly less responsive than 3.0.4 but I guess the JS and what-not is faster? (I'm on linux btw)

TBH I've found this too, on Win7. Only ever so slightly though.

Firefox
Love it

Just wish they would improve the Bookmarks organiser.
It is so clunky and un-intuitive !

And I have a problem with it that I cannot get any help on as their help site is too large and overwhelming.

In fact due to the large number of FF users on here, I will post my problem on Press F1 to see if anyone else has the problem.

Continue to be very happy with Firefox.

FF 3.6.6 here. I've got chrome installed, but I don't like it. It has real potential though, and, IMO, technically better.

Where's the option for IE 9? :D

Safari? No thanks, I detest apple.

I doubt I'll switch any time soon, I don't use boookmarks, I rely on FF's pop-down menu, all I have to do is hit a letter or two, and click. Can't import that :( Also, I have a couple of add-ons that I love dearly (mostly DownloadHelper). Quite like personas too, have yet to see anything similar on any other browsers, although I'm open to correction.

As for the rushed 3.6.6 update, It was to fix a small issue with launching plugins in separate threads (better crash protection). The timeout was set too low (5 seconds), in a nutshell, it broke farmville (as well as a few other flash programs). The new timeout is 45 seconds. What I want to know was, why wasn't it adjustable?

Except it isn't as customisable as Firefox so blocking the adverts BEFORE rendering won't work.
