Just wondering what browser everyone uses?? I use Safari mainly, and IE sometimes.
I use Camino while I'm at work.
NEVER use IE!!!!!!! It is so prone to letting **** get onto your computer. Always use fire fox instead of IE.
I used to use firefox exclusively, but since finding chrome, I am hooked. I still keep firefox and even IE as backups for those pesky sites that don't recognize chrome.
IE 7 mostly and Google Chrome a little.
I used to use Opera which I really liked until trying Chrome and never looked back.
Chrome was also the only browser to survive hacking attempts on day 1 of the pwn2own 2009 contest. IE7, Safari and Firefox fell in minutes and even bugs were found in IE8. That added bit of security is always handy.
Firefox and Safari at home on the Mac, Chrome and IE at work. Some of our aps at work only work with IE.
nothing but firefox for me.
Opera. What wone me over was being able to shut it down and opening it back up with all of the web pages from my last session still open in tabs.
Firefox exclusively unless at work where I have to use IE.
I develop websites, so I have to see the world through many eyes...
I use these three. (MSIE 7+), (FF 3.08), (Chrome 1+)
I don't care for anything related to apple. That is just a personal thing. I also can't waste time developing websites to function on obscure software. (The loss of 1% for those who are as stubborn as I am, is not worth the time, money or effort. Most people have two browsers.)
There is no such thing as a "Safe" browser or a "Secure" browser... They all have flaws, and are equally easy to hack. Trust me, if someone wants something you have, they will eventually get it, or get caught trying to get it, or move to an easier target.
Use what you like, and NEVER assume any browser is safe... or you are the easier target.
Sure hackers will tell you another browser they made is safer... They know how to get in there better, faster, and those who believe it is safe will visit your sites more and tell you which browser they use... (Takes the guessing out of which hack methods to use.)
If I want security, I use my own data-browser... Raw HTML and text, no images, no pop-ups, no ads, and 1000 times faster than all other browsers. LOL. Yummy!
If you use windows... you are using MSIE, even if you don't realize it... Windows-XP and up to all present versions are all MSIE as the operating system. They just made it look like the old windows setup. Your desktop is a browser. (Ironically, you have to use MSIE/desktop to operate all other browsers, unless you have a DOS or x86 version, or linux or apple. Which is ironic again, because all new apple computers are IBM x86 computers inside. Apple no longer manufactures anything. It is all China-Ware and Japan-Ware.)
Definitely Firefox... I only use IE when I have absolutely no other choice
Opera is a gooden for me! Built in torrent support, great zoom, a little sluggish for some tasks. Firefox has all those great plugins to get rid of ads and such and seems to be starting to appear in embedded computers!

Well since pretty much all modern users of Windows are using the x86 version that means we are all safe muahahaa!
I tried Google Chrome several times and it was garbage.
If you use IE regularly, good luck!
Don't worry users of IE who have good security! You own your computer, no one can tell you what browser to use! Besides, IE is sometimes the only browser that will work with some online banking sites etc.
I have just downloaded chrome after reading your post Tas.....my first impressions are that it's a very neat easy to use interface and quite fast.
I'm running Opera here on Ubuntu. Ubuntu comes with Firefox pre-installed, but I just prefer Opera. Obviously no IE on this OS.
Firefox, but might be checking into Chrome
I have used Firefox for years. Never heard of Chrome, I'll look into it.
