    Firefox here.

    I think you'll find most techies use FF and non-techies IE.

    Quite frankly i think FF has become more bloated and memory intensive over the years but I am hooked on all the addons I have been using so stick with it.

    You should write for Firefox because between FIrefox and IE, it's the only one that runs on Windows and Linux. I'm using Kubuntu Linux and it's Firefox for me all day.

    I like firefox for its variety of plugins... I like chrome because better at multitasking and it is easier to make your own plugins than it is for firefox. I like IE because perl with Win32::OLE likes it.

    Once I can figure out how to get chrome to interact with perl or chrome to talk to a postgresql database then I'll only use chrome except for when I need certain plugins then firefox.... Then once chrome has all the plugins I need I'll do chome only...

    Hi there, this is Kate with the IE Outreach Team. IE8 is safe to download and has many security advancements. Have you seen the recent study conducted by Cenzic that shows how few vulnerabilities IE8 has compared to other browsers?
    You can check it out here: http://www.internetnews.com/software/article.php/3847461/Firefox+Tops+Vulnerability+List.htm
    Or read more about browser security here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-

    I use Firefox. I just received the following email from the company I work with. Looks like they discovered another security hole in IE (not that I'm surprised). What really surprises me is why any company would continue to use MSIE at all (knowing it's past history and vulnerabilities).

    Flock. It's based on firefox. They call it as "Social Web Browser".

    You can get it here:

    I personally wouldn't touch IE with a bargepole even if I was a Windoze user.

    German and French officials have recently advised that everyone just stop using it purely because the vast majority of attacks on the internet, have primarily been caused by IE. Not to mentioned that it leaves spyware on your computer, which in the end will slow your computer down to a snail's pace.

    I know what you're going to say about IE being attacked more than any other because it's the most popular and has been around longer than most, but people need to realise that there are better, MUCH better, alternatives out there.

    Chrome is excellent for general use I've found. Very good tabbing system, clean, friendly and very, very quick. The quickest I've used. The downfall is that I can't install my password manager into it (1password on my Mac and my wife can't put her RoboForm into it either). Firefox is good but seems too clunky, at least on a Mac. And Safari on a Mac is excellent, but I don't know about on a PC. Just love it's simplicity.

    I use them for different things though. General use goes to Chrome, I use seo-proxies.com and for that I use Firefox because of seo-proxies built in interface which works easily with FF.

    My 2 cents.

    100% Firefox for me, though since I do some web design, always make certain to check your page in IE also. Often what works in FF, will break in IE.
