I use Google Chrome exclusively on my computer to the point that unless it's important for me to access, I will not access a website if it's not Chrome-compliant. Anything and everything any other browser can do, Chrome can do it better.

I love Google Chrome, and I'll probably always use it (Unless, of course, a shinier, better one comes out). I used to use Firefox for the longest time, but ever since I noticed Chrome's speed, apps, performance ability and smooth running of scripts, it's been a no-turning-back option.

Chromium, because I refuse to be a part of the monitored botnet that is Google Chrome.

There is no doubt that Google Chrome is the best browser out there. I use it and it rocks. It's super fast and has great features.

Ehm...what?
It's all a matter of preference really. If you want to browse the web, use Chrome. If you are a power-user, I'd go with Firefox due to the enormous amount of useful plugins.

I myself use Firefox for the above mentioned reason. I really like being able to do almost anything with my browser and since I create and manage websites pretty often, various Firefox-only plugins come in very handy. I have used Chrome last year and I must say that it is indeed very fast, probably due to the rendering engine. It did fall short in the amount of good plugins so I switched back to Firefox.

I used to use Firefox all the time, but now I've change to Opera and I like it a lot better. It just suits my tastes better than the other browsers I've tried.

I stick with Google Chrome, seeing how it hardly crashes on me. Firefox used to crash on me all the time, and IE is way too outdated. :\ I'm not into web design that much, but if I needed the debugging features of Firefox it'd be my default browser, but meh. xP

I used Firefox for many years, and I still continue to do so even now. Never really thought of trying out the other browsers much, though I have been fiddling around with Chrome recently, mostly just to see what all the fuss is about.

Google Chrome, mainly because all the other browsers are REALLY slow on my computer, and because of the Most Visited feature. It's like bookmarks but more convenient.

Ugh... Chrome...

I hate Chrome. I went to go try it out, but then circumstances arose forcing a system restore to a previous state. Google Chrome hates system restores. It becomes a pain in the neck to try and uninstall after that, and when you go to start up the computer it throws an odd error at you. Looking online, I found many people had the same problem.

So I now use Firefox, for it's add-ons, speed, and customization. Chrome isn't a good choice for at least me because of that system restore error.

Firefo. Nuff said. I tried google Chrome at once. As I remember, It has some bugs -like crashing instantly and unexpectedly-

Also, It's much more easier to manage add-ons, passwords, cahches etc. on firefox.

Personally, I use Chrome on all of my devices: on my computers, tablets, and phones. I just feel that the browser is faster and has much more features to work with. (Especially Incognito Mode, haha. Just joking.) In fact, I'm using Chrome right now to be on PokéCommunity!

But hey, Incognito is useful hahaha.

I use Safari on my phone, and Chrome on my laptop. I don't really have a preference to be honest, I just like something with no toolbars and stuff at the top lol.

Even though I use chrome, I prefer Internet Explorer 9. There are two reason I use Chrome, The first, and biggest reason is sync. I use a netbook, desktop and my cellphone all sync my bookmarks, making it easy to browse the web on any of the devices. The second is spell check out of the box. I use IE at work and I really like it. I use to hate IE with a passion, but IE9 has changed my opinion on IE, like W7 changed my mind about Windows.

I've been stuck on Firefox ever since I downloaded it. I used be a die-hard Netscape user until it was canceled. I disliked MSIE from Day 1 so that's a no go for me. Opera was kind of nice, but it lacks the Persona features that I like on Firefox. I am also a bit anti-Google these days (that's a whole nother subject *rolls eyes*), so I never touch Chrome. I'm happy with what I have honestly, and I feel there is no need to switch. Plus Firefox is an awesome name, it even reminds me of Vulpix!

Google Chrome is sleek and loads everything faster than Mozilla, which would naturally be my second choice.
