Just wondered what browser you guys are using these days? I'm totally into Chrome for the speed, interface, preferences and app thingy.

I'm still using Safari because it integrates so well with 1Password. I do think Chrome is a faster, better, more reliable browser but it is awkward for sites that require a login.

I switched to Chrome when it sort of hit the mainstream because I was having so many issues with Safari 4 at the time. I have't looked back since then. I just think Chrome is the best browser on the market. After Chrome, I would say that Firefox comes in second.

Safari,

I'm not a fan of Google, they make their money advertising so I'm not comfortable using their products. Its like having built in Spyware. So I make a point not to use Chrome and very rarely use gmail etc.

I use Firefox 4 across all operating systems. I hate to say this, but I'm also a little impressed with IE9 in Windows 7. It's really fast. Shocked

Safari for me. I still like the way it handles your bookmarks and history over the competition. It's also pretty darn snappy.

I was starting to use chrome more for browsing. Although it is quicker than Firefox it seems far more likely to stall on slightly delayed server responses. Firefox maybe a little slower, but it seems to always get there in the end.

That has be debunked many times over. I totally feel comfortable using Chrome. It's the best browser out there in my book. You certainly can't say it's slow.

I'm sure Apple is an upstanding and honest company! Razz

I'm still a Firefox fan, across all platforms.

I alternate between Safari and Firefox, but selected Safari in the poll. Just because I probably use it a little more.
