Weekly Poll: What web browser do you use?

Recommended Posts

Chrome is not an option because it's still insignificant and almost useless - and that's how it should stay.

 

~Mr. D. V. "To hell with IE/Safari/Chrome/Opera/Netscape/any-other-stupid-browser..." Devnull

 

Must. Resist. Urge. To. Flame.

 

now i use firefox mostly, and the other two sometimes...i have all 3. \'

 

Hardly all. I can think of at least 8 or so major browsers.

 

why is firefox so good? :-k

 

i might download it if you have some good points.

 

:)

Firefox FTW. I've really taken to it since IE gave up showing YouTube videos. I've used Safari a bit though before and that's okay.

 

 

 

I hold quite a soft spot for Google Chrome too. Not because it's a particularly amazing browser but I like it and it can handle Runescape and Tip it and even another tab! Whereas with my fail computer, Firefox only usually manages the first two. Still since Chrome is in beta it's not perfect, but it's alright.

I use firefox, because IE takes up almost double the ram when on Runescape and its more customizable

I use Camino. It's a browser for mac. It's nothing super special, but it works.

Mozilla Firefox FTW!

 

 

 

Used to use IE, but it got real laggy for some reason.

 

Personally, I find Firefox easy to use and I like it's speedy service. :thumbsup:

Wow, so many more fellow Firefox users now! :shock:

 

I remember when this poll was cast the first time (back when the poll feature was still relatively new) it had over 70% of votes cast for Internet Explorer.

 

It seems we are indeed taking back the web! :D

Pretty much what Dragon said.

Thread terminated.

I guess that means I'm the thread Terminator?

 

No Tip.Iters were harmed in the making of this post.

Has anyone ever actually tried to get rid of IE? I can't seem to :x It's telling me it's removed from my computer, but somehow sneaks back on after every restart...

 

 

 

Internet Explorer is encoded into the system. It's just a shell for the regular Explorer. Technically you could access the internet with "My Computer" by putting an URL in the adress bar. Just set another browser as default browser and it should do the trick.

 

 

 

--------

 

I wonder why not Chrome or Safari had their own options? Netscape is so old and outdated that it should just count as others or be grouped together with Firefox under a Mozilla category.

 

 

 

In any case, I use Mozilla for its improved security, correctly displays web pages after W3C standards and recommendations (which Opera and IE fails to comply with), open source and, well, out of plain old habit. Internet Explorer is simply too slow, like many of the other products of Microsoft - which I find strange, since most of IE is loaded upon system start as part of Windows (EXPLORER[Caution: Executable File]).

Strange, why is Google Chrome not an option? It would be interesting to compare Firefox to Chrome. Anyway, for that reason, I voted 'other'.

My bro has installed firefox, but I always use IE.

 

Why?

 

 

 

IE loads faster

 

IE runs runescape (firefox doesnt for me)

 

Firefox makes a lot of sites look strange (buttons over each other, etc)

 

Firefox isn't really inituative

Opera.

 

 

 

No competition possible IMO.

 

EDIT: I looked at other post and people compare Firefox with IE, Safari and google chrome, but wheres Opera? I mean, it's freaking fast, you can customize it and got mouse gestures, really secure and voice controlled stuff. Nuff' said
