Hmm... I've been using Chrome for a year or two now and I'm not having any problems. I use it on both my 32 and 64-bit W7 systems as well as my XP box. The only issue I have is with one of my bank sites not being compatible with Chrome. If it weren't for that I'd stay with only Chrome. I occasionally go play with the other browsers to see if there's anything that draws me away but I'm always drawn back to the simple and FAST front-end that Chrome presents.

However ... the next best one that I've seen is Firefox. It's a superior browser. Give it a look.

You will run into many opinions on this. It's the same deal as programmers and their editors... it becomes very religious!

It really is down to personal choice.

I use IE9 and get on fine with it. Didn't bother with any other browser because I need Internet Explorer for my online banking and so far it hasn't let me down.

You have options like Opera or Safari (You probably don't want Safari).
Search "Browser Choice" through a search engine, it will show you allot of browsers that no one's heard of.

I had the back button problem with chrome for about two days, but it was a simple fix and has already been taken care of in the release afterwards :)

I used to use Internet Explorer. I've been using Firefox for a couple of years, but don't generally like the idea of add-ons and constant updates. So I am kind of looking for an alternative. All I want is stability, few issues, and reasonable security. I don't care about fancy new "features".

Yesterday I tried Chrome and gave up quickly because one of my must-have websites displayed very incorrectly.

I looked at Internet Explorer 9. The configuration controls looked much like they did on IE 7---far too many of them. I didn't really spend much time on it.

I'll continue to suffer with Firefox, but if I had to change now, I'd go back to IE and just accept most or all of the default configuration. I can't stand to constantly be tweaking stuff in the name of security.
