I actually use Pale Moon, which is a browser that bases itself off Firefox. I've found it to be my favourite honestly.

I often used Firefox due to the vast selection of add-ons, even though I occasionally might use Chrome.

On my laptop and my smartphone? Internet Explorer. Version 11 for the laptop, and 9 for the smartphone (stuck in 7.x forever). I used to use Google Chrome before I switched when 9's beta was out. Let's just say that even with an anemic CPU (by 2009 standards), you can do a lot more when you pair it with a powerful graphics processing unit. Especially when you're on a mobile platform.

I switched from IE to Chrome about... 4 years ago...? I don't exactly remember. But I haven't looked back since then, and looking at IE now feels very awkward.

I mainly use FireFox just because I have never had any real problems with it and that is good enough for me. I do like the look of Chrome better, but I haven't had a chance(I've been too lazy) to re-download it..so yeah I use ff.

I'm using Safari right now, as it came with my Mac. I don't find any problems with it, so I'm good with it.

I used to use IE, a long, long time ago. At that time a friend persuaded me to get Firefox, because it was faster, better laid out... stuff like that. I stuck with Firefox for a couple of years, but then there was this game me and that same friend wanted to play. Firefox wouldn't play the game, for whatever reason, so he suggested I try Chrome. And, well... I've never looked back! Chrome's fast, easy to use and nicely laid out, in my opinion.

Opera is the way to go for me! (and seems like I'm the only one xD) I love the speed and how many features it has. Also, I LOVE the Opera Portal! It gives me the news without the need to check the websites!

I've been using Chrome since around the time it came out; it's better than Internet Explorer by a long shot and beats Firefox quite handily too.

Chrome's minimalistic interface, as well as blazing fast loading times deceptively deep customisation options (themes!) and the extensions offered - AdBlock comes to mind - are strong reasons for my continued usage of the browser. I'd definitely never go back to Firefox or Internet Explorer...

In my opinion, Google Chrome is the best web browser. I always use it whether at school, home, or work, because I find it to be more comfortable than other browsers. It has a fast start-up, a clean and simple interface, better security, and an incredible loading speed. I also like how it syncs your browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, applications, extensions, Google accounts, and all of your other data.

ABrowser generic web browser, made specifically for Trisquel GNU/Linux. I, in all honesty, prefer the GNUzilla icecat browser, but I have trouble installing it and making it default, plus using it with TOR. :/ So, I'm stuck with a generic web browser. I do not use Chrome or Chromium for they spy on their users (Also encourage the use of non-free softwares). :/ Though, I quite like the work Google made on them.

I'm torn between using Firefox and Chrome all because of extensions being available only on specific browsers. On my Mac I'm using Firefox becuase DownThemAll exists and is the best download manager I've used. Not an issue on the desktop though because I have a standalone downlolad manager to handle downloads so I've been using Chome on that.

Chrome, Chrome and more Chrome. Nothing better.

I used to use Firefox but slowly got turned off of it, I've still got it on my computer and the more recent versions are 10 times better than what it was a few years ago (although even that was better than IE).

Chrome because I am too used to its scrolling, Firefox has this awkward scrolling that makes me want to alt + f4 it. The latest IE just looks weird to me, although it doesn't have that super awkward scrolling effect like Firefox.

I've always used Chrome for no adequately explained reason. It's fast, does everything I want it to, has adblock, has Lazarus, and doesn't often crash - plus it's customisable! I'm sure other browsers can do all of this and probably more, and I certainly don't use Chrome to the extent that it's likely designed to be used, but it's always been safe and reliable for me so I'm happy with it. I'd change given a good recommendation, but most people seem to use Chrome too so I see no reason to try yet haha.

Same reasons as him, I have been using Chrome for years now and it's easy to use. I can do everything I want on it and it has customization options too. I customized mine in a Hatsune Miku background for now, until I find something better.

I'm lucky to have a dad working in media and communication because he thought me the existence of Google Chrome. he started using it right when it came out, and then installed it on my computer.

Google Chrome, because back then I used to have such a small, laggy laptop. Google Chrome was fast and clutter the screen. Using firefox was a bit laggy with my laptop... and don't get me started on IE, attempting it is hard enough. (No offense to IE users, this was an old IE version haha)

Now I have a bigger one, but I'm still sticking with Chrome. Its just so simple and does the job.

Righ now I preffer Firefox but no so long time ago I was running Chrome and Maxthon a lot. Decided to switch to Firefox cause it is far less laggy for me. But in the end it doesn't really bother me which browser I use (not counting IE).
