If you need several plugins to make your life easier, use FF, if not go Chrome !!!

Well, it has support for user-scripts, and will have an even bigger repository of them soon.

I think I'll try Fx Minefield the following days. Heard it's faster than Chrome. If it is, I'll go back to the furry fox
i figured i would test minefield tomorrow. all ready downloaded it.
It's lightning fast. Although it spontaneously crashes from time to time. Understandable. We'll see how it performs all-round this week...

You can't use plugins in the 64-bit Firefox right?

Why in the world would you be unable to use plugins?

Plugins have to be coded for 64 bit I believe.
Also there's no flash player for 64 bit browsers.
Adobe says they are working on it... I think they said that atleast a year ago.

Google Chrome for me...though it's a 32bit browser...still it feels really fast and best of it's not cluttered and memory wise it's not too shabby

Reluctantly, I have to give nods to IE8. I use it for the basics; Hotmail, YouTube and other Flash-enabled sites. I also use it for my MSDN subscription.

Minefield is what I use for general surfing. It's a fully x64 application and allows me to run AdPlus, the ad blocker add-on.

Until Adobe get of their humps and provide x64 Flash, I have to use two browsers.

I am positively surprised by Minefield. One of the fastest browsers out there now! Compared to Chrome Dev Channel, it's über. Maybe it's because Chrome is dev.. Who knows.
