I used Firefox all the time and love it.

I recently switched over to Chrome and I hate it. Too lazy to do the deletion and reinstallation stuff, though.

I have been using IE8 for a long time, but soon it got crappy and started being slow. Then I switched to Safari, but I found out that it doesn't save cookies for some reason. Then I switched to IE8 again, then Safari, then IE8, before settling with Google Chrome. It was way faster, and could handle a lot of tabs at a time (unlike IE8, which would normally crash if I added another tab).

At the moment I prefer Safari, because I find it works better for my Macbookpro and with my iPhone4. I do like Firefox and Google Chrome, though. I've used Firefox for the longest out of the 3 I've listed, but I kind of like GoogleChrome more then Firefox.

Firefox by far is the best. No contest. I do love the IE9 song in their commercial though.

I like Chrome and Rockmelt.

Rockmelt is my favourite with its integration with facebook and push notifications from websites of your choice (otherwise it is basically the same as chrome) but Chrome is better if you're going to be unsociable XD

I'm using Firefox. It's just so fast and I rarely get viruses like I did with Internet Explorer; and it doesn't crash like my Google Chrome did(I don't know if it was too powerful for my computer or what).


Real gamers play for fun.

I sometimes use Chrome, but my main has been Firefox for as long as I can remember.
I just prefer it because I've been using it for so long, I guess.

Google Chrome is my best pal in my computer, so I guess Google Chrome. Otherwise, mainly for coding reasons, I use Firefox, or Opera.

I used to use Firefox a lot since it was faster than Chrome and... *cough* Internet Explorer *cough* as is every other browser, but on my new computer it was slower for some reason so I switched to Chrome which was just about as fast as Firefox so stuck with it. Now I'm too used to it to switch back to Firefox.

I prefer Chrome, but my computer prefers Firefox. Therefore, I use Firefox because it doesn't crash on me regularly. Might have to try Chrome again, I kind of miss it...

I use Firefox. It's very convenient for me, and I don't think I'll be switching browsers for a while.
“You see, love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says I love you, I love you if you’re in China, I love you if you’re across town, I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you, I’d like to have your arms around me, I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now. So, I love you. Go.”

Chrome is my main preference of browsers. Firefox is a close second because I'm very convinced at their latest update. It runs very smoothly and doesn't require much CPU to run too many tabs. But right now I am very emotionally attached to Chrome because I run a few extensions on there and I refuse to let them go. xD

I like Chrome because it's very fast and smooth, and their themes are amazing.
So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake
Just keep on reaching, though the limb might break

I must agree completely.
I run like that.
I'm posting on Fire Fox right now, but I'm usually on Chrome.
They are, the 2 best browsers.
