        Seeing as it's what happens when you just directly copy and paste the licencing agreements, I think I'd give Apple a free pass on this.

        Google Chrome does have its own licence agreement when it comes to things like this; every single browser does have a licence agreement and a privacy statement.

          I would have to say Google Chrome. I have used Internet Explorer and it was godawful slow. I have used Mozilla Firefox before and I quite liked it, and it was fast. But Google Chrome is rather easier to use, and has some bonus' like the "New Tab" screen with your apps, the Google App store, the bookmarks, and the themes. Firefox still haas things similar, but not as easy and smooth. (I'm sorta picky haha)

          I know. Don't really care at this stage. If you do, there's always Chromium or SRWare Iron the like. Same browser, different rules.

          TIFIFY. :cer_laugh: Was still quite funny at the time. Safari for Windows is pretty useless. Very few addons and the Webkit engine is available on Chrome (and the like). Unless you're really into the Apple-style font smoothing.

          Firefox. I've always like Firefox best because of the "Inspect Element" tool. It comes in handy when I want to know if an image is a CSS image or just a plain image. And Firefox is faster and safer than IE. As for Chrome I don't like it because it never saved my tabs. Opera also falls in this category. And Netscape is evil. Worst thing I've ever used. So, yeah Firefox all the way.

            Google Chrome is my fav! I used to use Firefox after my dad showed it to me a few years ago, but last year I started using Chrome because it's so much faster and safer, and easier to use

            OK, after some time spent with Opera 12 beta, I think I'm seriously considering switching browsers for now. It works so well when you think about it it also makes me feel at home when you consider the way fonts are rendered and other graphical stuff. Who knows, maybe my preferred browser will change pretty soon.

              Firefox is the best. It has the most number of themes, add-ons and plugins.
              What more can you ask for.

                Well actually for tabs... That's a configuration thing in Opera... :V

                Settings > Preferences > General and set "Startup" as "Continue From Last Time".

                And the Inspect Element tool is in Chrome and Opera as well. It's pretty spiffy.

                I wonder what other software it won't let you get?

                Since Opera has an unholy amount of settings, is there anything that bugs you? I can point you to the places to change them.

                  Firefox. (No, I don't change the icon to a shiny Ninetales. Why do you ask?)

                    Chrome! I don't know how long I've been using it, idk I'm guessing around 2 years? But it's definitely better than Firefox, which lags, though I'm fine with Safari on my iPhone. HOWEVER, I really love inspect element on Chrome. Except Chrome lags, but not to the extent that Firefox does. XD;

                    I use Firefox for the customizability (I have a ridiculous amount of add-ons and plug-ins and I'd find it really hard to survive without most of them XD), with Chrome as a back-up in case there are any problems.

                      Chrome for the start-up speed and simplicity. I have Firefox, IE9 & IE10 installed on this netbook as well and I utilise IE10 when I'm using the metro interface, or just have to look up something or do a swift search.

                        Mozilla FireFox runs most smoothly on my modem, with nice transition speed and a taste of success. I have to admit it is my favorite; but for more paper-work related stuff, I use Chrome.

                        I use Firefox on all my computers. I've tried multiple times to switch to Chrome because I'm not too terribly happy with the performance/stability/speed of Firefox but I honestly just can't. :( There's one extension in Firefox that I absolutely adore and cannot live without: Tab Mix Plus. There are so many little features in it that I haven't been able to replicate exactly in Chrome. The most important of these is probably changing the style of (especially unread) tabs. There was no equal for this last time I tried to switch so I just couldn't do it. I was back on Firefox within a few days. I used to use a LOT of extensions which was the main reason I never switched but now I've realized it's really just that one that I need.

                        I do use Opera and Chrome on their own fairly often but I definitely prefer Firefox overall. I absolutely hate Safari though and I won't use it even on my mac. :P (And windows is right out because iirc they still do the weird font-smoothing thing? I hate Apple font-smoothing even natively on my mac. Don't want it on Windows. <_<)

                          Firefox! :D I've never really had any problems with it!

                          When I was younger, we had IE and even Netscape at some point... Ugh, those days... So many errors. After my aunt introduced me to Firefox I have never changed.

                          Been trying out the Opera Beta. It's nice enough, but I just can't see any compelling reason to use it over Chrome or Firefox.
                          It's got one nice feature for me, and that's selective loading of images. For some reason, I always have internet problems of some sort. When that happens, I have to resort to dial-up. This feature's a lifesaver when you're on dial-up.

                          Google Chrome.

                          It always runs fastest for me. But I do use Firefox from time to time.

                          This is basically the same for me. I don't tend to use a bunch of toolbars and add-ons, so I just prefer the speed of Chrome to other browsers. The only time I really use Firefox is if I'm on a website that has better compability with it.

                            I use Chrome for its fast loading time. I originally used Internet Explorer but it was too slow for me. Then I downloaded Chrome and installed it. Since then, I have been using Chrome.
