I've been using Google Chrome the best since I joined PC.
It's fast and useful for my ancient computer.

I use Firefox, I prefer it over Chrome as it's more customizable, with so many extensions and what not. The odd time I use Chrome, it's a custom-built version of Chromium, as Google's vanilla browser has privacy issues.

I use Firefox. Sometimes I use Google Chrome as it is faster in loading videos. I've been using Firefox for 2 years now and I can say that I like it quite a lot. I do find it better then IE too. Overall Google Chrome is good, but i'd stick to FF.

Chromity Chrome, but it hasn't been as smooth as usual for me lately. I'm considering going back to Firefox...

Seems like there's a lot of Google Chrome users here. Personally I'm not a fan of it, but to each their own, I guess.

I actually like using IE10, if only because it's what you can use on a Surface RT... but it's also because it's what tablet web browsers should be. IE, buttery smooth? Yeah, right, it's happening.

Speaking of IE and Chrome, to all those who switched from IE to Chrome - have you ever thought of giving IE10/IE11 a try on a Windows 7/8/RT/8.1/RT 8.1 machine? While it might not win any benchmarks, I've noticed that it copes well in low memory situations and should handle touch and scrolling better, especially after things have loaded completely.

It depends on what I'm using. I use Chrome for most things, browsing the web, reading the news, etc. and I use firefox for cheating on browser-based flash games! :D

EDIT:
After reading this thread I decided to give IE10 a try. I like the way it looks and feels, but Chrome is faster for me so I will stick to Chrome.
Also, more things are compatible with Chrome than are compatible with IE10, so that's another bonus.

Things like...?

I'd also like to know what kind of hardware people using Chrome uses, to see whether how fast some browser has in relation to CPU-GPU power balance. I know that when you don't have a lot of CPU power to throw around, I'd rather stick with IE9+.

Kins of unfortunate that statement is not as simple as you think. It's more of a "does something support what we need" thing. If a site is truly forward, it shouldn't just be optimised for Google Chrome - usually said "optimisation" if done properly should also mean everyone else that's mew enough also gets a nice, optimised experience, as far as the user is concerned.

I actually like using IE10 for sites that I use a lot, as it pretty much have never let me down. Try going outside of the Chrome App Store - you'd be surprised how you don't need that.

I currently use Firefox; I tested a majority plus one sorta unknown browser to different tests, and Firefox came out on top overall. The unknown one I've took a liking to, is called Comodo Dragon. It's based from Chromium, and seems to be more secure and performs better than Chrome, but that's just my opinion. I use it on my small computer.

This one's gonna be somewhat interesting, but here goes.. on my tablet I have both the default Chrome browser installed and Firefox too. The only reason I have the Firefox browser is because it supports Flash player, and whenever I need to view flash player content and I'm not at my computer, Firefox for Android comes in handy.

Google Chrome is the easiest for me, compared to Internet Explorer or Firefox the design of the browser is simple and easy.

I used to use IE like everyone at one point until I learned that it was bad in more ways than one. So I switched to Firefox once I got my own laptop (about 5 years ago). Which was fine until a year later and my laptop kept lagging and being really slow. So I was on the lookout for a faster browser. I tried Safari (which, may I mention, is like, the slowest browser ever when it's not on Macs), Opera and lastly Google Chrome. I was so impressed with how smooth Chrome was and how lightweight it was. It didn't have any nasty toolbars at the top, had adblocker..bingo!

Now even til this day I use Chrome and I definitely would recommend it to anyone.

I use Opera 12. I love the Presto engine and the sidebar. Unfortunately the new Opera is basically a Chrome copy so I haven't updated to that. I guess I'll just use Opera 12 until it becomes impossible to use anymore.

I use Opera. I just love it more, everythings nice. Turbo for faster connections on a slow network. Built in pdf, irc, ect. I dont know. I just like it Though the sometime crashes and internet connections are annoying.

I usually have trouble with chrome, plus it dosent look good to me. On android I use chrome though, thats good.

IE is usuable.

Wow, you people are so boring, as you all use Chrome, Firefox, IE, and any other mainstream Browsers.
I'm using ELinks.

I prefer Firefox 3.6 but I lost it.

Now I use updated Firefox on this laptop and updated Chrome on the other.

I always use the latest version of Firefox, which it's currently version 24.0. Firefox is open source, customizable and pretty much anyone can contribute to the source code.

I have Google Chrome set as default on Windows 8 to use from the Start Screen, but I use Firefox most of the time.

I used to use Firefox but that changed when I discovered about Lunascape 6 and Opera. Just discovered that Lunascape can render the page in different engines(Trident and Gecko) and Opera is very fast right now. :D

Google Chrome it is :D
Haha just because IE has always been bothersome and firefox has always been slow.
IE just random closes on me way too much and firefox cant seem to handle flash very well.
Also does Chrome see to support the most things when it comes to webdesign and coding. IE fails on too many subjects and Firefox seems to display them in it's wicked ways xD

Chrome seems to be doing just fine for the time being :D
