I use Firefox as I find it to be better to deal with and safer then Internet Explorer.

I use IE since that is what is on all the computers I use at work and home. It just makes it easier to use the same one.

Chrome mostly. Occasionally Firefox when things don't work in Chrome.

I have heard good things about Chrome...never used it before.

Opera is ok.

I love Firefox obviously and Internet Explorer can suck it since they cause more issues with site design than they ever help.



I love that I do not see ads on the internet. Does anyone here see ads on this page? If yes, you should look into an ad blocker and hopefully even that shitty IE has a way to do that by now...

Post if you have ads and which browser and if anyone knows how to block them in that browser, please share.

I have ads and use firefox and to be honest I dont mind them at all... I can tell they are tracking cookies from sites though because its the usual places I go to, like marine aquarium stores, midget bowling sites... you know normal stuff like that.

Add this to Firefox...free and takes 30 seconds

Firefox, Chrome, or Safari are the only ways to go. If you use Internet Explorer then I feel sorry for you. You have no idea what you are missing.

Just curious and maybe I just need to try it again, but Chrome was a pain in the ass to me when it first came out.

Has it changed?

I use both chrome and IE and get on fine with both. Chrome certainly has the edge though.

It is hard to explain the problems. I wouldn't even know where to start. Stuff just doesn't work in IE when it does work in all of the other browsers. I can't imagine how many websites aren't fully functional for IE.

You can search "what is the best web browser" on youtube and watch the countless videos that bash IE if you are interested.

Going Incognito in Chrome is without a doubt the best browser feature ever. I guess you might be able to do it in other browsers - not sure.

For anyone that is interested, here are a few links to some browser statistics that will show you what are the most popular items. You can look month to month to see the direction computers and the internet are going in.

Which browser are people using (ie. Google Chrome): Browser Stats
Which operating system are people using (ie. Windows 7): Operating Systems
What screen resolution do people have (ie. 1024x768): Screen Resolution

It is much later, so I will thank you...finally got around to adding this. Obviously, I use Firefox...voted a while ago, but never made mention of it. I have Chrome on my computer, tried it a few times, and that seems good also. I only use IE for one website, and that's because it requires it, otherwise I wouldn't use it at all....

I use Chrome the most and Firefox second. IE WTF is that?!?!?! j/k

Anyways, I used Firefox only from 2005 to 2011. Then Firefox started to take a dump on me last summer after an update ... I think it was 6.0.1. I got that (Not Responding) shit a lot, like every 3rd or 4th website and it would last 10 to 20 seconds and correct itself. However, I don't have the patience to wait when I want a page to load, I want the page to LOAD! I switched to Chrome and re-did my bookmarks and must say I am pleased with it. I still use Firefox occasionally and am not sure if the problem I was having has been fixed cause I usually only use it to dig up old bookmarks and such now.

I do see ads underneath the HOME, CALENDAR, FAQ tool bar at the top. One ad in particular really cheeses me off. It says "you won" and literally says it through my speakers so I hear it. I really hate those winner ads. They are such BS. Also, I accidently clicked on it once when I missed the HOME tab and it tried to download some shit on me.

Doesn't Chrome have a way to remove ads? That would be a dealbreaker for me

yeah, chrome removes ads. Same ad blocker you recommended up above. I have adblock plus on here.

I honestly, have no clue how people surf the internet WITH ads.

There is probably a better thread to post this to but I don't have time to play games with the forum search thing...

Firefox just updated to Firefox Quantum and it is light years faster that what they offered before. Took me a minute to figure out how to get my Speed Dial back but I got it so everyone can keep living for now. Anyone else use Firefox and updated to this? Are there any features that I haven't had time to discover?

Just downloaded the new Firefox Q' this week, it is faster than previous FF and Google Chrome.
Given my slow internet I try to limit using additional features, adding in more extensions, addons.

Been using Chrome as main browser and dabbling with Brave.

I may switch back to Firefox though as my main. Did some speed/ torture tests and new Quantum Firefox build is finally on par with Chrome. Did some things better and some worse but most part is pretty negligible for most PC's these days. One surprise was CPU usage was supposed to be much improved from the last (piss poor) builds but I didn't really see that.
