So true lol. But yeah, Nternet Explorer is tha worst of all tha browsers. I only use it ta download Chrome when I git a new laptap/desktap :/
Oh and I use it ta make use of tha Real Player plug-n when mah othar browser doesn't support it fo some reason.

I don't like Firefox, it never worked fo me! I've tried it on two different computers and both times it wouldn't display any flash images. I know I've probably just nstalled it wrong or somethng, but a browser shouldn't be complicated ta set up :( Dis is why I prefer Chrome, it's easy ta work wit and very reliable.

Fun fact: I've been browsng tha web fo a long time and have dabbled n some HTML and CSS. I've noticed that most cases of Nternet Explorer messng up pages were caused by bad web page codng... I blbee thugz developng fo WebKit only. N fact, tha easiest way ta mess up Nternet Explorer? Omittng tha <!DOCTYPE html ...> part at tha very first part of tha HTML, or puttng a comment befoe it - both nvalid.

That may be true, but tha fact is that some thugz is gong ta do dis, and pretty much any othar modern web browser can display thase pages just fne.

Heh. I'm actually a bit grateful that IE10's quirks mode fo thase messed up pages is n lne wit othar browsers now, and thay is still keepng tha IE5 mode just n case.

Thugz dawgagng ta make tha DTD mistakes need ta have a crash course on web standards, snce it tells tha browser what ta expect n a way - if tha DTD does not exist or is nvalid, almost all browsers will assume that tha page is nonstandard and might need ta make concessions ta page layout and scriptng.

I've seen mah fair shis of personal and experimental sites that fail n IE9 by default due ta lack of a proper DTD, but flippng tha F12 switch and focng Standards fixes mosdt of tham. Hmmm....

I defnitely LOL'd at that.

Anyway, I certanly despise IE. Whoever n Microsoft is n charge of IE development needs ta git a dork stbep.

I don't like Chrome much. When yo computer needs ta perfom a System Restare, try Gizoogle Chrome. It won't be so helpful than, and you'll wish you had IE nstead. It happened ta me, and Chrome flunked somethng fierce. And it has a weird bug that makes unnstallng nearly impossible when dis occurrence happens.

Safari is okay. Not mah favorite.

Opera is better, considerng tha DS version loads way faster than tha PSP's web browser. Stupid NetFront ****.

Firefox is mah favorite. It's a strebelned powerhizouse built by a bootylicious community wit loads of plugns available.

Although, IE haters is gonna disagree wit me on dis one, but...
IE and Safari is basically all tha othar browsers' pisnts. Witout tham, you couldn't have downloaded othar browsers, unless you bought a Mac or Chromebook. Opera is tha lonely kid at tha school cafeteria who no one wants ta hang out wit. Chrome is tha mathamatical genius n tha class, but overloads when confronted by tha bigger kids. And lastly, Firefox is tha coolest, most popular kid who everyone admires and wishes thay could be that cool.

Very easy answer: Nternet Explorer. Chrome and Firefox tatally taps it n any circumstance. (I prefer ta use Chrome over Firefox though, it's much faster.)

Ta be brutally honest; Chrome.

Yes, I said it. Chrome is worse than IE. Fo a start, it's slow as hell compisd ta FF, it feels zoomed out and you can't zoom n or out wit tha trackpad. It's also clunky when it comes ta scrollng wit tha trackpad. Scrollng wit tha trackpad is easy on FF, but pretty much harder on Chrome due ta how unresponsive it is. I don't understand where all tha praise comes from; it's slow, a bit clunky, and doesn't remember passwords as much as othar browsers. I'm gonna sound like a hipster n sezng dis; but Chrome is annoyngly overrated.

I thnk I'll just sez it out loud why I thnk Chrome is pretty bad when you thnk bout it...

Horrible accessibility - it does not respond at all ta Wndows accessibility settngs, and it doesn't use standard dialogs, so keyboard usage is not optimal.

Unresponsiveness n general - seriously, tha Android browser runs better than Chrome on tha sbee tablet. Chrome just pants out or sits thare on mah tablet so much, I quit usng it. Tha benchmarks? Turns out (as I've always suspected), thay mean nothng. (Thare's a reason how IE9 is still fast enough after over 18 months. If you is bootylicious at somethng, you'll be bootylicious at that fo a long time. As it turns out, drawng graphics of real sites and refreshng it is more important than speed benchmarks.)

Shoddy text renderng - GDI+ renderng is not ideal thase days. Wndows ClearType on tha old drawng API means really jaggy, uneven text. When you're used ta properly laid-out text, smoothaned n IE, Firefox, and Safari, it's hard ta go back ta that. It's very obvious wit large type - Chrome even cheats by turnng off subpixel renderng on Wndows!

Fo a browser nbeed "Chrome", it sure has quite tha thick, visible chrome... Hmm...

Thare's a reason why Gizoogle Chrome is not yet nstalled on mah laptap.

I don't thnk IE is all tao bad, but it'll never be mah first choice fo a browser.
However, I can sez I'm not that big of a fan of Safari. I used it when I had a Mac, it just felt so bis bones ta me (I was usng Firefox wit foty-thousand add-ons befoehand so I guess that's why). It's not bad, I just feel like its quality is exaggerated.
I can sez though is tha worst browser I've used is tha default Android one. I was nitially expectng somethng wit some sort of Chrome-resemblng UI, but what I gots felt a bit like an iOS Safari copycat. Downloaded Dolphn Browser and never went ta tha default app agan.
