Favourite Web Browser? - April 23rd 2009, 06:51 PM

Well I'm currently looking for a new one since my Google Chrome keeps playing up. I've tried Firefox before and obviously Internet Explorer and I'm now on Opera for the moment. So what does anyone recommend?


I thought there might already be a thread about this but I searched and couldn't find any =/

I'm still a loyal firefox-ian >.>
I just like how customisable it is, and it's never caused me any problems whatsoever, though I admit, I am curious about Chrome myself..

I actually love Google Chrome.

But Firefox, for sure. I don't think I've ever had problems with it.

IE is baaaad.

I use opera and love it. I love how you can completely customise it. You can add widgets to update your facebook, twitter etc. automatically, widgets for the weather forecast, widgets for calculators, and loads of other stuff too.

My opera browser is bright pink!! I really love it. Its so easy to switch between tabs, check your email etc. all in the same place. Opera FTW!!

Hey,

Well as a tech person I personally know my stuff. Now Internet Explorer 8 Is just complete crap... Don't use that. Firefox is ALRIGHT but it has it's moments, quite often and I have to say by far right nwo the best browser is Safari 4 Beta... It'll be better when it's not in Beta!

You just go to http://apple.com and click downloads then look for Safari, choose your choice of either Safari 4 Beta or that and Quicktime then put in your e-mail and download!

I prefer Firefox....but as a web designer, I hate the fact that my pages come out differently in the different browsers.

And anytime I start IE, without it actually having to do anything, it will crash my computer. If it has to run a javascript, it works fine

I've been a firefox user for the past 5 years or so now, for many reasons including the amount of time where security holes are left unpatched (compared to internet explorer and safari its alot shorter, because of the communities efforts of working together with Mozilla)

Add together with that the following extensions: Noscript which basically halts any phlising or popup adds, Addblock plus to remove any straglers and flash ads, DownloadHelper to nab any videos or embedded flash files and Netcraft Toolbar to show infomation on sites like page rank, risk rating, location and owner stats, well then you have everything I could ever need heh.

I personally stick to Firefox because of its customisability and speed over IE. It's the browser I always recommend.

I've not bothered to try Chrome yet.
I used Opera a few times, but I didn't really like it. The only thing that stood out was the integrated Bittorrent support.
I've heard a lot of good things about Safari, and will try it out soon, but having used it at the Apple store on their MacBooks, nothing seems to stand out.

IE is always really slow. For me, anyway.

I didn't realize how slow it was until I started using other browsers. I was really missing out.

It depends what sites you regularly use as to whether its any good or not.

IE hates facebooks "chat" function. There are a few other sites that cause it to crash as well. It also doesn't work very well with Windows Vista home basic - which is quite amusing.

It also performs updates far less than Opera, firefox etc. so the glitches stay glitchy for longer.

I haveeeee, long list: Google Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, Flock. Flock is stupid and a bit annoying, but it's the only thing I can use without my computer crashing. That and Google Chrome, and Safari. Yeah my computer's... sucky.

Internet Explorer sucks because it blocks like no pop ups, and it's by Microsoft. I blame Microsoft for the current state my computers in. That and my lack of computer knowledge.

Well my Google Chrome is working now I forgot to change something about the drive lol I have to say I've tried IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Flock. Chrome is without a doubt the fastest and the best. Although Firefox comes in at a close second with IE right at the end.
