Which browser do you prefer?

I have been an IE guy forever. I am now bored. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of Firefox, Chrome, etc. Opinions please.
Thanks,
Bill

I use Chrome these days. Sole reason...linking my bookmarks and search history to my gmail account. This way, no matter what computer I am on, I see the same thing. Firefox has something similar with Sync...but it just doesn't seem to work as "instantly" as the Google Chrome product does.

Why not download them all & try them out yourself & form your own opinion.
All the browsers are easy to download & you can have them all on the PC at the same time, you say you are bored well go & find out for yourself.

I choose FF for the interface and the speed. I'm using it since version 2 or 3(can't remember),and I'm not planing to change it.
