What browser are you using? Opera in xp & Chrome in Ubuntu for me.
Chrome almost all the time at the moment, on OS X, Ubuntu and Win 7. I like my browser to be consistant on whatever OS I'm using. I used to be strictly Firefox, but found it's got somewhat bloated these days, plus it crashed sometimes. I've also used Opera in the past.
Internet Explorer. I tried Chrome when it first came out and I didn't notice any speed difference like it claims to have. I also don't like how they did the bookmarks.
No lag on it, even when I have 40 odd tabs/windows open :O
IE and sometimes Firefox. Also have Chrome installed but haven't updated in 4 months or so...
Chrome for all my personal stuff and Firefox for work.
I love Chrome but I had to switch back to IE 8 as my default because no one does LogMeIn.com like IE (it's the only browser that gives me a full screen remote sessions, the others stay in the browser).
I don't recommend IE 9 yet - I had to uninstall the beta because it didn't play well with LogMeIn.com full screen and a couple of my other favorite apps.
FF and Chrome
Installed: Firefox 4.0 Beta 6, Minefield 4.0 Beta 8 Pre-release (64bit), IE 9 beta, IE 9 Beta (64bit), Chrome Developer Edition (8.0.552.0 dev) and Opera 10.XX (beta).
I use Minefield daily, IE every once in a while when something won't load correctly in Minefield (or Fx) and Chrome updates itself from the dev channel.
I stick with Fx b/c I can move the profile where I want to, create it where I want to and if I have to uninstall / reinstall it and / or format my machine, I just install, run profile manager, point it to my existing profile, and poof! all of my stuff is right there, extensions settings, the whole nine yards.
Right now I am using Minefield extensively b/c of the (finally!) 64bit Flash build and the fact that my minefield is 64bit as well. In fact, typing in here from Minefield.
Oh, and I have the latest Fennec 4.0b2 installed on my DROID as well. As soon as the next nightly comes out I can enable sync and then all my stuff on my computer is on my phone. BMs, tabs, history, all that jazz
Chrome on OS X plz.
I was using Chrome for a bit, but I have gone back to FF. The add-ons seem quite a bit more polished/flawless in FF compared to Chrome. I may move back in the far future, but FF just feels too solid to really look elsewhere right now.
I'm using Mozilla Firefox due to lots of add ons supported with Firefox.
I've always used FF, it's interesting to see how popular Chrome is, on the assumption that quite a few of those switched from FF, can I ask why?
I've been using Chrome as my main browser for quite a while. After I found Firefox to be crashing about once a day, taking all my tabs with it. One didn't have to be doing anything with it and it would crash. This was on a Mac..and I think it was Firefox 3.5. I've got so used to how Chrome works now, and feel comfortable and confident with it.
Firefox has had a memory leak for a while, which has been documented a few times. I've observed Firefox taking well over 1GB of RAM if it's been left running for a day or so, even with only 2-3 tabs open. Again this is on a Mac. Chrome never really goes over 300MB.
I'm using google chrome all the time. I barely use firefox.
Opera all the way.
Switched from FF to Chrome
Think I'll go back when I get my lappie
opera, you heathens. Chrome's gesture plugins blow ass...
I'm about ready to murder the next person I see using IE 7.
Chrome and Firefox. IE and Safari (on mac, not windows) can go elsewhere.
I'm using Safari on Win7. I really love the Top Sites and Reader features, which are preventing me from switching to Chrome. Also, we have a Mac as the desktop hub in my house, so the familiarity is nice when I use that.
I am also trying out IE9 Beta, but can't bring myself to like it too much. It just runs... oddly.
I went with Chrome for a while but it was a major memory hog on my older work machine and after a while the hard drive would start churning while swapping out virtual memory. So back to FF for me.
