Yes, a short and simple poll, what web browser do you use? I use Google Chrome for almost all of my browsing needs, and sometimes Mozilla Firefox. I try and stay as far away from Internet Explorer as possible....

Google chrome is my favourite but i also use all of the browsers, also IE is my safest browser because it blocks almost all of the unwanted cookie like the paypal cookie on this page

It would have to be Mozilla Firefox for me. I have two Add-ons that I use daily, and well... kind of need them unless I want my internet life to be harder. XD;

Firefox. Expandable, reliable and most importantly, cross-platform. :D

Chrome seems a little to half-baked to me. =/ Plus, the actual product is only for Windows.

On my phone, I use Opera Mini, which is the best option, in my opinion. It scales down everything to fit the phone and makes it faster and uses less of my limit. :P

Safari and Firefox.

I use Safari to surf the internet. I just like the layout and so on.
Firefox to use its different addons.

I'm sure you can turn that sort of thing off in Tools > Internet Options. Not 100% sure, though.

Fun Fact: On my Windows 7 install, Internet Explorer 8 boots faster than Firefox 3.5. At least thats.... 1 thing in IE8's favour?

I use good ol' Firefox, the only time I use Internet Explorer is if Firefox is playing up (And that's rare). I love how customizable it is.

Firefox Personas FTW

Mozilla primarily, if I want to mix things up I'll use Opera. I was quite impressed with Firefox 3.5, once I started it the first time after upgrading I saw a significant performance increase. o.o

Firefox, because I now find it very strange to be browsing without Adblock Plus, Noscript, and FireGestures. XD;

I actually use 3 different browsers.
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari.
I guess I have a habit of using them all for their different features,
and unique layouts.
