    What web browser do you use? I currently use Google Chrome, and I am in love. I am not a big fan of Internet Explorer or Firefox.

    What do you use?

    Firefox, IE and Chrome. Something on my computer doesn't agree with Chrome. I've tried removing it and reinstalling it several times, but it's still not working properly. Pity. I really like Chrome.

    If I use my iPhone I am still using Google Chrome, I recommend it for iPhone if you're using one.

    I have 5 PC's in my home (all run tip top) and have for many years now used and will continue to use IE/msn/bing, after checking out all those rogue browsers and never being impressed by any of them, plus I help many seniors with PC problems, as I am known as a puter guru to them, I always advise them to use IE and keep all these important softwares that came with your PC updated and you won't get into trouble as so many do.I do remotes on PC's and can not believe all the unneeded crap they have in theirs like maybe 5 toolbars OMG. All junk they get by downloading these rogue programs. And several AVI's or clean up software etc. etc. Then wonder why my puter is so slow! or messed up? they actually think all this crap is normal and ok. LOL I always tell my senior friends if I don't have the answer, I will get it in under a minute and with Bing I do!

    I use IE and have never had any problems with it. I have Norton 360 to protect my computer and it's been fine as all the updates are free.

    I use IE 9, and like it best. I have tried Firefox and Chrome and ditched them quickly. Chrome wanted me to sign in to my gmail [I do not like gmail either] just to browse the internet, so I ditched it immediately. No thanks. Firefox was very uncooperative and did not work well, so it was gone quickly also. I had tried the Firefox and Chrome because of some tech issues that some thought were caused by IE 9. They were caused by something else.

    I use Chrome on Windows and Chromium on Linux (same thing). But I do have a few websites that only work in IE (from work).

    I use Firefox mostly...the web designer in me absolutely hates IE, when coding web pages you have to add fixes and all sorts of scripts to get IE to show pages like other web browsers do without all the "babying", it's really a pain and IE should have gotten on the "good browser wagon" years ago.

    I use Firefox on my desktop PC. And yeah, I know it's a resource hog but it's still cool and I've heard about too many issues with Chrome. I don't know what I'm using on my tablet but it works, lol.
