Out of those? Firefox.

I personally use Google Chrome, and love it.

IE is a piece of crap.

I don't like either. IE, well do I really need to explain that? And FF seems to crash with me.

I use Chrome, Opera and Maxthon. All for different things.

Don't like either. Safari.

I've always hated Internet Explorer.

I used Firefox for the longest time, and I really liked it.

I like Google Chrome a lot more though, and that's what I currently use. :]

To be far I haven't used the newest version of IE yet, so I can't really judge that. Basing this opinion on the older versions IE is a pile of poop :|

I used firefox for about 5 years until recently, now I use Google Chrome. I still use firefox now and then if I want to download something using download helper.

If I search the internet, I use IE.

I use both. Don't really care about this, really

I prefer Opera as an internet browser, but Firefox is my second pick. Opera is really fast to load up and the shortcuts are awesome as well as the "Speedial" thing. I get to all my favorite sites on demand.

I've never liked IE, firefox is fairly customizable, though I sometimes use chrome

I didn't create this thread as a joking matter, I created it simply because I was in a pickle and needed some input.

Right now, the only reason I still have IE on my computer is I'm too lazy to uninstall it. Pick any browser at random. Chances are, it will be better than IE8. I'll re-evaluate my opinion once IE9 comes out, but it probably won't change much.

Firefox. I've used it since before people knew what it was.
Google Chrome isn't bad...but the whole "each tab is it's own browser"...it kills my computer. It just takes too much memory and all that jazz.
I do, however, use Chrome for TH and some other similar things so I can use the incognito mode.

I use FF for it's awesome add-ons, and the bookmark bar that probably has a name that I don't know. It's much better then IE.

Chrome is pretty good as well but I hate that it doesn't have Ad Blocker.

Firefox does the job for me.

For some reason links I receive on MSN messenger open in IE, and it usually completely lags up my computer and takes 5 minutes to open. And last time I actually tried to use it for browsing I got blue screen and crashed twice.

That happens to me as well...!
I have to paste the links into firefox instead. But there should be a way to change the settings I guess :/ just haven't figured what that is yet.
