Does anyone actually use internet explorer? - June 24th 2016, 07:00 PM

The question is in the title.
What browser do you use? If you use internet explorer- why?

Re: Does anyone actually use internet explorer? - June 24th 2016, 07:07 PM

I actually still use Internet Explorer

I use it because I like how the favourites section can be organised. I have used Chrome in the past, and it really bothered me that the favourites weren't as organised (I have a lot of favourites). I do like Chrome for being faster, but on my old computer it would be heavy on memory. Though Internet Explorer definitely has the downsides of crashing more. Haven't tried other browsers

Firefox. Old preferences - it's quick, easy on your RAM and I'm just used to it.


The risk I took was calculated, but boy, am I bad at math.

The schools I've interned at all required teachers to use Internet Explorer, they had specific reasons but I forgot what they were. On my macbook I use Chrome despite HATING it because it slows my computer down. It's the only way for me to have hangouts open all the time, my main way of communicating with friends. On my PC I use chrome because it's new and can handle it. I actually really liked safari on my mac but again, I need hangouts and also chat doesn't work on safari right now. I only use firefox if I'm going into chat.

I use chrome on my phone and laptop now, just because my phone is a google phone and internet explorer kept crashing on my computer. At school it is required to use internet explorer and it doesn't have google chrome on it.

Firefox. Faster and supports Java. Will only use IE on a public computer that doesn't have anything else installed.

This. I love firefox. I tried switching to chrome but didn't like the way bookmarks worked...it was more complicated then it needed to be. With Firefox I have no problem organizing my bookmarks. Now, chat won't work on Chrome so I don't care to use it. But, at the library they use Internet Explorer and that's the only time I use it.

Nope. I hate Firefox and Internet explorer with a passion. One of the places I volunteer at only has internet explorer and it drives me off the earth. I use Safari mostly but I will use chrome (since it's the only one on the computers) if I'm at university or if I need to use google drive or other application like that for school. If I go on chat, I download Firefox for that use then delete it.

My mom still does. I used Firefox for a very long time but I switched to Chrome a couple years ago now I think. I think it's convenient.

Re: Does anyone actually use internet explorer? - June 25th 2016, 04:54 PM

I mainly use Google Chrome. However there are certain things that do not work on google chrome in which case I use mozilla firefox such as when I go into TH chatroom or want to play certain PC games that would not load properly with Chrome. I like chrome because of the speed and because the favorites/bookmarks can sync into any computer and move around with you on a chrome account.

Firefox has crashed in the past for me. I think it's because I have like many tabs all at once.


I am notorious for having so many tabs opened then using the "bookmark all tabs" function :P

The only time I use IE is when I get a link on skype and the default browser is IE but even then I just copy and past the URL into the address bar of a different browser.

IE was the first browser I've ever used. It was the worst when I would be playing a PC game and the entire computer would freeze and then no one could use the computer until my uncle came and did the task manager thing to end the task. lol, good days.

I have alot of favorites too! I thought Chrome was rather organized though you can make folders within folders within folders.

I clicked off "Other"

I use both Firefox and Safari. Each browser I use for certain things.

I know a lot of people use different browsers for different things and they have them all opened up at the same time because browsers work differently than others and whatever your doing may be better to use X browser than Y browser.

I haven't used IE for many years. I used to use Chrome, but I switched to Firefox when Chat stopped supporting it (for a while I stuck with Chrome and just used Firefox for Chat, but that got too messy so I just changed over).

I use Safari because I have a Mac. Sometimes I'll switch to Chrome though. When I want to go in chat I have to use Firefox though. I haven't used IE in years.

My all time favorite browser was Safari when I had a Mac. Now that I have Windows, I only use Firefox. Unless you count the odd number of times I used Internet Explorer to download Firefox.

With the release of Windows 10, they have a new browser called Microsoft Edge along with Internet Explorer. I feel like they are trying to phase out Internet Explorer to make Microsoft Edge the main browser for Windows given the user doesn't install a different one.

wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

I use my iPad as a laptop so mainly safari. But when I go home and use the computer we have something weird I can't remember but not any of the ones mentioned. We only use it because our computers so old
