I've used Firefox since last year, and I still continue to use it. I've never had any crashes yet, which is good so far. As for search engine, I use Google.

Edit: The ironic thing after making this post is there was a Chrome ad at the top of the page XD

My main browser is Mozilla Firefox. I remember I switched once to Google Chrome for a few months but I ended up missing Firefox Anyway, now I'm fine switching between both of them. But Firefox is the most used. Maybe when I want to check something quickly I launch Chrome. I have IE, Safari and Opera installed, though. But that's because I'm a programmer and I need to check if everything is fine in the main browsers, I don't use them. Although I must admit if I had a Mac I would definitely give Safari a try, I love it in my iPhone and iPad.

Search engine... well, I think it's clear enough. Google is the King. I couldn't think of any other better than Google.

Allez, hop!

I just mainly use Google Chrome and the integrated search engine in the URL bar, it makes life so much easier.

Chrome and Google. I used to FireFox but I began to like Chrome a lot better.

I've always used Google as my primary search engine. As for internet browsers... Firefox moved terribly slow on my old laptop, so I switched over the Chrome. Even after upgrading to a fantastic computer, I still use Chrome.

I've only touched Bing once or twice and I've never used Yahoo!; I've always used Google as my primary search engine. In terms of Internet browsers, when I was less tech-literate (and 8) I used Internet Explorer; about two years later I switched to Firefox on the urges of my uncle but felt it was too clunky; and very soon after Chrome was released I stuck to that and never really looked back. I've never used Safari; it's one of the worst browsers in existence IMO (no customisation options whatsoever and rarely updated).

Opera here, been using it ever since I got introduced to the webs. Shame on you for not putting it amongst the poll options.

Oh, and I always use Google as my search engine.

I'm using Chrome at the moment and it's the one I normally use.

Firefox and Opera are two other browsers I like and will use if Chrome ever gives me problems (which isn't that often)

I use Firefox because I find Chrome requires more bandwidth. I actually tested the same pages on both browsers, and a program indicated that more bandwidth was used with Chrome than Firefox for the same pages.

Not that it matters now, having unlimited download and all (didn't have it before), but I also like the personas of Firefox. You can make your FF look like Chrome, too, so wee.

I'm using Firefox at the moment since I've used it over the years and have built up my add-ons collection to the set up I have now and there are a few things which Firefox has that chrome doesn't (Though I'd admit that Firefox has been catching up in features that Chrome has already had ages ago)

I used to use Google as my primary search engine but have recently switched to DuckDuckGo now as per privacy concerns and I've been using DuckDuckGo's !bang feature (Where you can perform a direct search on a particular website) recently and it's so useful that I don't think I'll go back to Google anytime soon
