    Still rolling with firefox. I try other browsers as new versions get released but see no reason to switch at the moment.

    Ha-ha! It's probably all of those, and if I considered browsers as part of pc security (maybe I should??), then I'd likely use it :)

    Browsers are at the forefront of PC security!

    And IE9 is quite secure. But I don't know enough about it to say whether I think it fits into the "built-into-os" idea. After all, I don't think EMET or MSE do.

    I'd link you to an article explaining that but I'm on 3G. You could try wikipedia.

    I used Mozilla Firefox ever since it came out. It was my default browser until a few months ago. Now it is Google Chrome. It is faster ,it has everything I need in a browser and keeps the browser updated.

    I don't mind Google tracking me either . Because my ISP does the same thing and so do most of the others , Microsoft included.

    I ended up uninstalling Firefox.

    Google tracks you regardless of your browser.

    Just shifted to chrome after being first on ie9 then firefox. This just feels better with the sandboxing like in ie9 and lightness and excellent speedy page rendering and compatibility.
    Firefox just couldn't cut it for me as it supported only one profile running at a time which gave me problems. Inbuilt flash is also great. And seeing how many features and the ui feel were being copied into firefox from chrome, i'l gladly stick with something a bit original :p.

    You can run more than one Mozilla Firefox profile at a time.
    Code:
    firefox.exe -profilemanager -no-remote
    or
    firefox.exe -P -no-remote
    or
    firefox.exe -P [profile name] -no-remote

    I'm a new Chrome convert (on WinXP). Up to last week, I never used anything but IE, but as MS abandoned XP users with IE9, I thought I'd try Chrome (still getting used to it)... :doubt:

    Not to worry. Any issues, just ask. Most of us have dabbled in a variety of browsers and are filled with wisdom ;)

    Keep going back to Firefox. I like the way I can keep the Profile on a separate partition (don't think I can do that with Chrome or Opera) and I find the extensions just seem to work better on Firefox. A shame as I love Opera, too, but it just lacks some of the extensions I can't live without on Firefox.
