Title: What Internet Browser do you use?
Post by: LEGOMuncher on February 01, 2010, 01:26:38 AM
Personally I use Google Chrome. It's so fast and clean. It looks great and using Google Reader in a Google made Browser feels so much more better, for some odd reason.

I use Chrome aswell, some benchmarks online showed me it's much more efficient than IE, Firefox, Safari, opera etc. However it is still in BETA so there are some little problems.

Fun thing, with the new VtW I actually can check what percentage of Browser use the site gets.

What are the general results so far? If it's not confidential or something ;)

Combo between Chrome and Firefox

Firefox. I'm fairly resistant to browser changes; it took me forever to finally give up the ghost of Netscape, so I don't see myself changing over to Chrome anytime soon.

Firefox on my desktop rig, Chrome on my netbook, since it uses screen real estate a little more conservatively.

As much as I'd like to use Chrome, the fact is I don't think they'll ever support plug-ins like AdBlock, since, you know, Google is all about web advertising.

I can't stand surfing the web without being able to filter most of the ad spam, so I'll stick to my trusty FireFox.

(yes I've tried a few of the goofy proxy tricks to make Chrome an ad-blocker; most of them are clunky and don't work with my office proxy anyway)

Firefox. I don't want to ever use a browser that does not have NoScript again.

I switch between Firefox and Chrome, but mostly I use Chrome.

As much as I'd like to use Chrome, the fact is I don't think they'll ever support plug-ins like AdBlock, since, you know, Google is all about web advertising.

Actually, Google recently added support for extensions for Chrome, and Adblock is one of the ones you can get. You can get it right here: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom (https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom)
I've been using it the past two days, and it's been working fine in Windows 7. Unfortunately, I run Ubuntu most of the time, and Google still hasn't gotten extensions quite worked out for the Linux version of Chrome.

Personally I use firefox, however I've recently considered switching to Chrome once/if they have Noscript and Adblock support.

As was said in the comment above you, Chrome now supports extentions so go ahead and try it out. Chrome is very efficient and generally a great browser.

Firefox. I've been using for a few years, seen no reason to stop using it.

Believe it or not, I love IE 8. It works and looks pretty and some websites only work on it. That being said, google chrome makes an offer I cannot refuse, so it is my main browser

Haha the end of your comment made me feel relief again.

Really? You like IE? Even it's noises sicken me now. It scares me, feel like I'm opening a wormhole for all sorts of malicious code to enter machine using it =p

At work I can use IE or Firefox. I could install Chrome, but I would have to install it each time I log into one of the systems here, so decide not to out of hassle of it. So, I use Firefox with No Script, Ad Blocker Plus, ...
Every once in a while I have to use IE for work and twice I have had some malicious script slide a virus onto the system and trash it, so glad I don't use it at home. ;) Also glad I am part of the IT support, so I can fix the machine myself.

At home I use Firefox or Chrome. It varies only by which system at home I am on. I like the addons for firefox, which is one of the things keep me on it. I have seen a few of the chrome ones, but not all of what I am looking for yet.

I've used Firefox since it came out, but Google Chrome seems to looking quite nice so far.

If you liked Netspace, you should try SeaMonkey (http://www.seamonkey-project.org/)

I use Firefox at home and a mixture of IE7 and SeaMonkey at work.

Using FireFox myself. I've enjoyed it for the past 3-4 years and have never had a problem with it. I'm thinking of trying out Chrome, it looks great. ANYTHING is better then IE. The damn thing just gets hijacked too much for my taste.

What is the about using a SINGLE web browser. Are you guys geeks or not.

I use FireFox, Chrome, IE (only when forced), Opera, Safari(for maybe a week, then uninstalled), sleipnir(engine combonation of all major ones; Japanese) and if I'm on Debian, IceFox and Konquerer.

I'm using Chrome, with Firefox as a trusted fallback whenever Chrome encounters something it can't do.
Title: Re: What Internet Browser do you use?

I think I'm going to give Chrome another try, given the number of people happy using it....

I think you'll find that Firefox is most widely used, with Chrome not far behind.

Firefox here.

When the admins at Purdue grabbed the numbers last, only 5% of the people used Firefox on the campus computers. I am sure the number of Chrome is even less, since it is not even installed on the systems.
