WINDOWS users-- which web browser do you use and why?

post #1 of 234
Thread Starter 
I have nothing against MacOS or Linux, but unfortunately I don't use those at the moment so the answers wouldn't be very helpful to me

I am interested to see feedback on Google Chrome, as I just started using it today for the first time. It does seem pretty fast compared to Firefox 3.5x, soo... hmm.

MY VOTES--
Chrome; just started using it, seems pretty awesome so far. We'll see.
Firefox; been using since 2.x days, love its speed, scalability and customization. AdBlock Plus I love you!
Opera; OperaMini, nuff said.
IE6.x; Have to use it at work. Not horrible, it's still a benchmark with which to compare other browsers I think.

Firefox since 1.0

I tried Google Chrome but I don't like its interface, Opera 10 doesn't feel as fast as Firefox.

Safari is pretty good too, maybe I'll spend more time with it.

I agree about the interface though, it's almost too minimalist to me. I'll try to find a skin or something. One thing also i'm not getting is Chrome is underlining in red EVERY WORD I enter into text boxes. Like right now as i'm typing this, there's a red squiggly line under every single word in this box. Creepy.

Firefox, Internet Explorer 8 and Chrome. In that order...
* Chrome as a test.
* Internet Explorer 8 for a web application which fail to work in other browsers.
* Firefox for the rest.

What kind of test?

Firefox ... I have gotten too used to some extensions / add-ons.

Basically testing if it is a worthy as a replacer for Firefox, as my primary browser on MS Windows.
It still is not worthy on Mac OS X, so who knows...

I've been using Firefox since 1.5. Anything without addons isn't for me.

Chrome Beta supports addons

I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 and I use Firefox 3.5 something because I like its extensions and the general appearance of it. It is also way faster than IE. I also have Chrome but I do not like how it looks although it does seem fast.

intoflatlines? I never noticed that before. Does that mean you like dead people?

EDIT: Hmm... I think I am posting inconsequentially today.

My main browser is Opera, second is Firefox. I tried Chrome, but I don't like how all the mouse gesture extensions I've tried do not work on the tabs that are not a web page, for example you open up the bookmark manager (a tab pops up in Chrome with the bookmarks) and then you can't close it with the mouse gesture. Minor but really annoying for me when I am coming from Opera.

I have Chrome, IE8, Safari and Firefox loaded on a Windows 7 Netbook. I'm using all four as I find each one seems to do different things better than the others. In general, Safari feels fastest to me.
