Title: What web browser do you use?
Post by: PH on Tue, 2012-05-29, 21:24:29
I've always used Internet Explorer until Google Chrome came up. Google Chrome is my absolute favourite.
Now I've been using it since its launch in 2008.

But time goes by and years have passed.
Internet Explorer is now version 9 (instead of 6, when I last used it), Firefox is updating very frequent: version 12 now.

I've never even tried Opera or Safari or any others (though I remember using Netscape when it was still there).

So things might have changed.
What's the best web browser now?

Quite frankly they are all frustrating and annoying but I still use firefox the most. I also use IE9 and Chrome. I am going off Google at the moment after they 'accidentally' picked up loads of data from peoples houses whilst creating street view.  >:(

I used to be a Firefox nerd (that last bit shouldn't be taken all to serious btw ;) ) but for the last two years I've been using Google's Chrome.
Quite happy with it.
Simple, easy to use and most of all quite fast.

I'm a happy nerd. (http://www.emofaces.nl/png/15/emoticons/nerd.png)

I use Firefox, but these times it tends to get heavier and heavier. I may switch to Chrome at some point, but right now I'm rather satisfied with Firefox, which I've been using for the past six years or so.

Google Chrome now.

Used to use Firefox which I really liked. I might go back to it, not sure yet!

FF15 now, and probably FF41 in Jan2013, if they keep updating numbers so fast...

Safari on the Mac and Chrome on the PC.

Why two different web browsers on different systems? Which one works best for you? Safari or Chrome?

Safari only works on Mac and to the best of my knowledge, is chrome not Apple-proof. ;)

As much as I'd prefer to use Safari, the Windows version has always been a bit buggy (grotty font problems, etc) so I kicked it into touch ages ago.  The latest version may well be fine, but I'm not about to investigate.  Web browsers aren't one of my hobbies ;)

So, after more than a year of tests and decision-making I have decided the Chrome is indeed the only browser out there.  8)

Safari is slow,
Firefox has gone bad,
IE... well Microsoft should just give up on this because it is pants. Utter crap! Horrendously slow, dull, never stops updating, doesn't like doing anything involving browsing the internet, and I despise it.

FAILURE!  >:(

BAD MICROSOFT!!! >:( >:(

Any other browsers should probably give up; Chrome has it.

Either Google and if not, I'm sure the NSA would gladly step in to do the task.  ;)

Google have nothing. They are a search engine. A portal. A mere doorway.

Put it this way: if Google broke, the rest of the internet would be just fine while it's being repaired. :P

Yeah, somewhat :-\

It's an entirely different matter with Wikipedia *horns*

Yeah, Matt, I know that some people say that. Funnily it's the people who don't use it (regularly) ;)

I use Wikipedia several times a day, and read the articles thoroughly. It's very rare that I run into something that isn't entirely correct :)

I do use it daily. There aren't that many inaccuracies I know, certainly not as many as there used to be but they do exist. There have been times I have looked something up and it hasn't been correct.
Wikipedia are way more 'on it' now though.
