[Poll] Browser use

Interested in the current trend of browser use, FF used to be top dog but I have a feeling its starting to fall behind

So there's only one way to find out.

Can ask a mod to add more options if necessary, but thats all I could think of in 1 minute

I'm about to trial google chrome as opposed to the 5 year FF reign

Firefox.

Adblock+ = win

Anyone who says Chrome is faster obviously has a nano-stopwatch somewhere. And solely faster doesn't equal better.

Of course, because I've also got a brain, IE is totally out the window.

Gotta say I'm still loyal to FF... Never caused me too many problems. I really should use some addons apart from google search.

That said, I do use Chrome from time to time and IE on the odd occasion if certain websites will only play nice with IE.

Oh yeah, IE at work too.

I am a FF user and adblock + is a definite gotta have.(tho I unblock overclock3d.net of course!) I have never tried Chrome but maybe in the future and IE is only used when it has to be for certain stuff.

Used firefox since i heard about it some four years ago. It's reasonably fast, and has the best configurability by far.

As an example of configurability, i've trimmed my interface, so that it now is actually smaller than the one used by Chrome, while still having every feature i use available.
