Like most people, I use Firefox almost exclusively.
The main reason being I use Roboform to manage all of my logins and passwords and so far, it's not supported by Chrome.

I don't particularly like the way Chrome handles downloading, I don't know, I probably just haven't gotten used to it yet though.

If Chrome even did get Roboform support though, I don't think I'd be using FF.

That's still FF's biggest draw card. Add-ons. If the other browsers allowed such a level of customisation, there would be a lot less FF users. Until that changes, users -like myself for example- will always end up back at FF.

I feel naked without my add-ons, lol.

+1 FF is the only browser I use and it is very rare that I have any problems, another great add on I use is my net usage meter that sits in my toolbar and tells me how much I have used for the month, how much I have left per day and heaps of other useful information.
The full name is Net usage item 1.2.211

I do like periodically using / testing other browsers and am impressed with the latest offerings. But when you discover yet another useful add-on like the usage meter for example, you do miss all those little features in other browsers that add to your overall browsing experience.

Personally I find that I can forgive Firefox's short comings a lot easier than forgiving the short comings in other browsers.


(Thanks for the usage meter heads up MG )

Eh, 'most people'???
Market share for browsers, operating systems and search engines
FF is a long way off yet being used by 'most people'.
I love the new Safari 4 Beta. Lots of great new features.

i can't wait for Opera 10 to leave alpha and go into beta. I'm waiting for the new interface. I've been an opera users since the 90s and it pains me somewhere inside to have to use another browser :P.

I reverted back to chrome, as I decided it was just too annoying not being able to duplicate tabs. I also think chrome has the best tab handling overall, and is the snappiest piece of software both in terms of rendering speed(tied with Opera 10 Alpha snapshot and Safari, although minefield is extremely quick), and also in terms of moving around the app. I prefer the search bar address bar combo.

I love Chrome for the speed and light footprint. I was a diehard Firefox user before but now only use it at work because they locked down permissions on our machines so I can't install Chrome on it.

I'm a huge Google fan-boy. Between Chrome, GMail, Picasa, and GoogleDocs I really don't need much else for most of my non-work computing. I haven't tried a phone with Android yet but given enough time, I'm sure it'll be almost as good as my beloved Crackberry.
