    firefox is what i voted for. i code to firefox and explorer though as they have the bulk of the market share.

    i like firefox due to its small download size and being that its NOT a microsoft product. just have always prefered the mozilla platform.

    I use Firefox to get to ftp file search engines, then copy the file location and directory browse from there.

    Firefox here.

    For me, it's the plug-ins (ABP, WOT, etc.)

    firefox here too....had a massive spyware/virus issue a couple years back on my parents pc because of internet explorer....so i "shopped around" and started using firefox...i don't think i've ever opened IE on my laptop which is two years old...

    i love the tabbed viewing (which firefox had WAY before IE), and now with the personas...plus like mentioned already..the plugins for firefox....

    safari on mac. It works nearly 100% of the time. Chrome is a bit buggy and Firefox is a resource hog on the Mac

    Firefox for years since hearing of all the IE holes and virus issues. So far so good.

    I voted Firefox, its good (mac,pc and linux), but I have also used Flock. Who cares, they are all about the same. Safari is great too, on Macs, Ipod and PC. Chrome was ok too, but did not use it much. Shira on Mac was kind of neat too.

    I used Netscape until recently and really liked it, it. Flock, Firefox and Netscape all Mozilla.

    I have become a Chrome guy. I love the speed, especially in flash. It is simple, easy, and clean.

    Once in a while, I do have to use IE for a website that doesn't support Chrome. This is usually when I log into the Microsoft Partner portal. Imagine that, MS doesn't want me using Chrome.

    +1. If I use a PC (not very often) I will gravitate to Chrome.

    I prefer Firefox , but some things are coded specifically for IE, so I'm forced to use both. The fact is, there is no single browser that does it all.

    Chrome for Windows (both XP & 7)

    Simple, fast, easy to configure for maximum screen size.

    Firefox would be my 2nd choice, although I have little use for the plugins.

    I guess with all the firefox fans here I should switch and try it out. I have almost always used IE and Safari. Safari is glitchy on a PC and IE crashes from time to time but I use what I know because I am resistant to change. I am still running XP on all my machines because of all the issues that Vista had and I am still affraid to switch to 7 for fear of what will happen to all my existing programs.
