What Browser do you use?
As a long term Mac user - after a brief flirtation with Firefox, i've always used Safari...

...however recently I downloaded and installed Google Chrome - and i have to say i'm really liking it - the google search integration is great (as you might expect) and its VERY stable and VERY VERY quick - so much so its my default browser now.

Thinks have come a long way since i used Netscape!

I still use Safari on my iPhone and iPad though - never found anything better - tried Opera on my phone, but found it fiddly.

What do other people use and why?
...oooops - missed chrome off the voting list - Mod? ...help??

Chrome is the ticket! I just recently found out that Face Book doesn't do spell correction unless using Chrome.

Not much

RE: What Browser do you use?
I use IE9. Over the years I've tried FF & Chrome and one other (can't remeber which) but it's pretty much always IE9 that works, whereas those others don't always.
I recall using Netscape Navigator in the mid-'nineties, though!

Firefox for me. The number & quality of plugins for Firefox strikes me as a lot better than any other browser. I keep trying Chrome but just don't get on with it.

Maxthon (portable, in my case) is one of the leanest (31MB), fastest browsers I have come across. While the interface may not be classed as "pretty" or "contemporary", it is functional and concise. Would certainly be interested to see if more people on here have tried it out. The move to portable apps on my old laptop has paid back huge dividends on stability, speed and maintenance.
