How many internet browsers do you have installed on your main computer? Please post which one(s).
Opera 10 Alpha, Firefox 3, and IE6 (which I rarely use).
ff , ie , chrome & iron
Opera & IE
The rest like K-Melon, Chrome, Iron, and Firefox 3.1 are all PORTABLES that i highly favor over installs.
2. FF because I use it. IE6 because I can`t get rid of it.
I use mainly FireFox but must also have Internet Explorer in order to get on my medical/prescription site.
On some partitions I also have K-melon and Opera.
I have FF, IE7, Chrome and Iron. One will be departing soon.
Ubuntu: Firefox (GNOME), Konqueror (KDE)
WinXP: Chrome (default), IE7
Vista: IE8 (default), Opera, Safari beta 4
One only - IE8, but sometimes I have to download portable Firefox, because of problematic webpages.
Everyone, who does not use IE should have to instal latest version for security reasons.
Old IE's DLL and files can make 3rd party aplications vulnerable, even other browsers.
4 browsers, in order of most often used...
2)Opera9 (...widgets & feeds)
The same here
No use for IE at all.
FF is my default browser, and IE7 exists for those moments when a page won't load on FF and I check it on IE to verify it's the page and not FF.
I question that statement but will not argue it.
IE6 (rare occassions required for a few sites)
I have IE6 installed and I haven't had a problem.
Upgrades/Updates are for programs that the user actually likes and uses.
Exactly .well said.
Firefox + Opera for all websites .Chrome is useful too.All of them are portable.Some crazy websites run only on ie , so cant really decide.
Iceweasel, Epiphany, Opera and Dillo!
Iceweasel everyday, Epiphany when on battery etc.
Epiphany, while basic, has some surprising simple features. It works and it's fast.
And Opera always has a place on my computer.
Total of 4 browsers.
Fx v3.6a1 pre - (theme upkeep only)
Fx v3.0.7 - (theme upkeep only)
Fx v3.5b4 pre - default/theme development
IE7 - installed but not used
One - just Internet Explorer
IE7 because Icannot uninstall it. i will update it to IE8 at some point due to security reasons. although rare some websites are still written for IE only... so sometimes it needs to be used.
my main browser is Opera.
btw anyone find it funny that microsoft sites have to be put in compatibility mode list for IE8?
Is K-Meleon as fast updated as Firefox? Is there an "automatic update" function?
Difficult to say. On Windows, usually 3, IE cause it's there, FF as primary, Opera as secondary, in some cases. On Linux, depending on distro, there can be one or five, but mostly 1-2. So the average is 2, but use just one 99.5543% of time.
Wow I'm surprised more folks don't have 3 or more browsers installed.
PCLOS - FF, Opera, Konq
Vista64 - Opera, FF, IE7 (32&64)
Separate names with a comma.
