    I could be wrong but I thought Chrome was built on the Mozilla (Gecko?) rendering engine but has a different Javascript processor.

    Firefox for me because of the add-ons.

    Firefox for about 95% of internet searches/surfing and IE8 for the 5% that Firefox doesn't work correctly on.

    I use Firefox on the Macs and PCs for the most part and use Safari and IE respectively when I need to go to sites I don't frequent that needs cookies.

    I do have a bit of a formatting problem here though, some of the text on the left is superimposed onto the right.

    Firefox here. Never like IE back in the day because of all the security issues and Firefox just ran better. IE is much better now, but I'm so used to Firefox. Tabbed browsing in Firefox back in 2004 was the most awesome thing to me. I am an internet junkie and was tired of having 5 IE screens open...

    I still have to use IE for my remote logins, FTP into my windows server, and to do anything with Microsoft websites, but IE is much better than it was a few years ago.

    I'm quickly becoming a big fan of chrome vs firefox. I keep having firefox hang up on several different machines pretty consistently.

    I have always been a fan of google products so I tried it and the thing I like most is...when you open a new tab, chrome displays 12 of your favorite websites (that you can choose and edit) as a speed dail. So I can open a new tab and click "Signs101" and be taken directly here!

    Started with Netscape and loved it. Tried IE for awhile, didn't like it then moved on to FF. Love it for the tabbed browsing and plugins AND the fact it's open source. IE is a magnet for problems and I'm NOT a fan of Active X.

    Opera is good too but still has problems with some things. I've yet to find a site that FF didn't work with.

    When I used my PC it was always IE, but now with my mac I have really used Safari as it is on my desktop. I do use Firefox as well but I seem to be ok with Safari and it has not let me down yet.

    You should have Signs101 as a homepage. It is one of seven tabs that is always displayed in my browser (Firefox).

    I support everything Google! Chrome is the fastest browser on the web and it has alot of usefull extensions! I read a post earlier about copyright infringement and one member said he uses Tineye as a resouse for finding the source of pictures. Chrome has a built in extension to where Tineye can locate the source of every photo on a paritcular page!

    Firefox crashes too much and I hate all those toolbars in IE!

    Funny I just noticed this thread. I just ranted about firefox and its memory leaks this morning. I have decided to can firefox, and am looking for a new one.

    I have been using Chrome for a while here and there, just never fully embraced it... and I downloaded safari a few months ago, but it has this annoying lag on startup, like it can't find my internet connection to load the home page. Once it goes through that process, it's lightning quick. I suppose if I could learn to live with the 20 second or so lag, it would be my new favorite. As it stands though, I am typing this in Chrome.

    Haven't tried Opera for pc yet, though it works great on my phone.

    Recently switched to firefox because some links would not work in ie.
    I heard a lot of good things about it, but see no real difference. I like the
    spell check, but I can't stop the pop ups.

    I've always been a Chrome guy but i've been branching out and using Safari and FireFox a little more. Can't Stand IE unless that's the only browser supported by a website.
