Hmm, if you want a good out of the box browser(without the addons and stuff), I recommend Google chrome since it's the fastest that can render javascript. If you want to customize your browser to your needs, hands down to firefox.

Because it's a beta.

Basically, download them all - try them all and select the one you like the best.

They all have their own pros and cons and it just boils down to personal preferences.

Were's the harm in having two or three on your machine ? I have IE available but my preference is Chrome as several site where taking way long to load if at all with IE I've jumped back to Chrome and enjoy it speed and other features.

Funny how people have this love/hate relationship with browsers. "I use browser X 'cos it's faster/better/smaller/more secure etc etc etc." Its a browser, not a religion. Try em all and use more than one if you want.


Just want to add: I use FF myself. IMO the best one. Tried Chrome for two weeks but wasn't at all impressed. Still on my PC though. IE is obviously on as well but I never bother with that. One I can definitely recommend is Opera, not the fastest but very very slick looking if that's your thing.

On my PC, I have Firefox and IE.

On my Mac, I have Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

I tend to use Firefox on both most of the time. But I've grown comfortable with it over the years, so I continue to use it.

Like everyone else said. Get 'em all. Try 'em all. They're free. See which feels more natural to you.

Firefox for the addons. IE9 but it's a beta and not many addons.

Others, I'm not sure about but I heard Chrome is fast.

I agree with smarteyeball, linnemeyerhere, bigseb, and skiltrip...Try them all. If you do a search on this forum for "best browser" you will probably find quite a few hits...

I use FF about 80% of the time with the rest split between, IE 8.0, Opera, and Chrome.

As the guys said, that question is very difficult to answer. It is like if you asked:"What food and wine do you recommend I eat".

I myself prefer IE8 after I tried most of the others. Reason is because it works perfectly "out of the box". FF is too confusing with all the plug-ins. Chrome is plain but fast. Opery is fancy but slow. I have also tried some exatic ones but alway came back to the IE. Interestingly enough there are some things I can do with the AOL browser that none of the others can do - but else it sucks.


Best is you try them all and then decide.
