    After trying all the main browsers, I still prefer Firefox.
    I can make it just like I want.

    I love it.

    Yeah thats my thing too. I have tried Opera and Chrome, they may be a bit faster in rendering, but that is not the most important thing imo (we are talking about parts of a second ffs :) ) Only firefox has all the extensions that gives me freedom to adapt it to my way of using a browser. I just cant seem to get "un" used to that :)

    Still very much in love with Opera.

    Not to big on add ons I never really use them and Opera seems to offer everything I want and use in a browser with extra speed.

    Maybe it is just me but with Firefox 7 Chrome 1. I get "Server Not Responding" way to many times a day. 2. Can't keep up with the updates!

    This is such a hard poll for me. I'm a chronic flip-flopper between Firefox and Chrome.

    I love the Firefox interface and the extensions, especially NoScript. On the other hand, I love Chrome's speed and security features. I can't decide which one I like better. :(

    Chrome for me. I'm surprised so few are using it here.

    same here.

    i have re-switched to Chrome.
    it'is definitely faster than Firefox.

    and i am starting to get tired with deciding which scripts to allow or not in NoScript.

    the quantities of trackers, bugs etc is growing by the week and the list of baddies shown in NoScript is growing longer and longer. ;)

    I like Iron, because it works well on my older XP-SP3 machine. I don't like the changes in chromium 19 though, so use 18. The problem being in 19, I can no longer open a second or third window-tab and have it be my homepage like in all previous versions. I'm curious why this is not mentioned-discussed on Wilders and Iron forums, unless I missed these somehow. I get tunnel-vision after looking through so many threads. I did find the problem discussed on this chromium forum and obviously I'm not alone in not liking this particular change.

    perhaps you are right.
    i have been on Chrome again for a few hours.

    most of the extensions suck compared to their Firefox versions.

    frankly, speed is the only thing it has over Firefox.
    and the sandbox, almost forgot about that.

    back to the fox.
    yes.
    this is more like it! lol

    Opera can be a good alternative on Windows. Safari works well on Macs, I don't recommend it for Windows.

    Here's how I see it:

    Best tier:
    - Chrome
    - Firefox

    Good tier:
    - Internet Explorer 9
    - Opera

    "I will never willingly use this" tier:
    - Safari

    I doubt it. Look at what's happened with Macs recently. I keep trying Safari on Windows. I honestly don't know why.
