    Title says it all: What internet browser do you use on your PC?

    I personally use Google Chrome and have been since it came out.

    Tested them all, Chrome came out on top for speed. I still use a host of others for specific reasons and/or testing code.
     
  6. Getting on the Linux train back in '96 turned me on to Netscape, Mozilla and, later, Firefox.

    Thank Heaven for any alternative to IE.

    I've been using Chrome exclusively since December. I really like the updates and improvements. Of course a little IE is sprinkled in since it's required for my school.

    I'm on a Macbook, and I've never loved Safari. The latest version is ok, but I find alot of the features are more eye candy than anything.

    Firefox has been my browser of choice for years, but I find it slows down after time too much.

    I switched a few months back to Chrome, and absolutely love it - blazing fast for me.

    Safari doesn't play nice with the internet.

    Safari on my Mac, Firefox on my PCs, and IE only when I absolutely have to. Have been interested to try Chrome, but just haven't found the need to make a switch at this point.

    Not only that, but Safari has holes that will give attackers absolute control over your machine.

    actually, based upon the number of people using chrome I decided to give it a go, and that is my new go-to browser. Fast, feels very lean, and I love the way it handles extensions for Gmail, Facebook, etc.

    Ive used firefox with a host of optimizations, add-ons etc. that I've found online over the years. It is now stable, and I can visit most sites without problems now.

    I disagree with the eye candy thing. Making every element other than the progress bar monochromatic is just ugly to me. That said, it looks light. Unfortunately, to me, it feels clunky. More so than IE to me. I use Chrome because it's the only thing that will run at an acceptable speed on my netbook. That said, I will use IE sometimes when Blackboard gets finicky with Chrome.

    I've been using Firefox since the very beginning. Chrome is still missing a few additional plug-ins I use in FF, so it is not there yet for me. I occasionally use Safari, too.

    Usually either Safari or Stainless, but sometimes Firefox, Opera, Chrome, OmniWeb, Shiira, Camino or SeaMonkey.

    Going to try Blackbird now :)
