Although I have and use both IE9 and Firefox, I find that I use IE9 probably 98% of the time.

So I would certainly have to say IE9 is my browser of choice.


Yes, I know that probably makes quite a few cringe, but I just prefer it for some reason.

My main browser is FF 3.6.19 - it is perfectly configured to my liking - very rarely gives me problems, my add-ons are great, and i really like the chromifox theme.

but I do dabble with SR Iron (chrome), Opera, and FF6 on another profile out of curiosity - all of the browsers have certain qualities I like but FF has been the most consistent and reliable

I really like where Microsoft is going with internet explorer and security. What I like the most is the smartfilter or whatever its called that scans your downloads. I hope Google decides to use something like that on Chrome

I was on IE9 for a couple of weeks but just couldn't wrap myself around it and went back to IE8. I'll wait a bit more (for fixes) and maybe try it again in the future. MS is fast enough for what I do and what my connection allows so can't really complain. I like having matched software--Windows 7, MS AV and Internet Explorer. Updates are frequent and it works. What more can you ask for?

I use firefox for the reason that chrome doesn't allow me to install it were I want it.

But went back to IE 8 because IE 9 stinks

I have 64 bit and under the advice of another tech, I went back to IE 8 because IE 9 really works crappy with game sites and a lot of older sites. I use Firefox mostly
