Default Browser Usage - Retired

Just trying to wrap my head around what browsers are common amongst our users.

IE's refusal to play nice with Google Maps more advanced functions has led me to actually think about different versions of my new maps for Firefox/safari/opera and IE.


EDIT this thread has been retired see the new version here Poll: Browser Usage? 2021 Update

I'm on IE on my PC, but thinking of swapping to firefox. At the minute though I'm mostly browsing via my BlackBerry - saves me climbing the stairs with my (still!) duff knee.

I do general browsing with IE, any secure things like banking etc, I use Firefox and I use Opera when Windows decides to pull one of their stupid tricks and not want to work.

Now the interesting question is... what version of Windows are you using. I am still using XP on my main computer and the laptop came with Vista which I hate.

I use IE at work (like now) but when I'm at home I use Firefox and at home is where I post new threads and write my lengthier posts.

As far as operating systems, I paid an extra $200 on my laptop for a version of Vista that came with a free "downgrade" to XP. Capitalism...

Firefox is the current winner for me mostly because of the addons that are available. I've also played with Google's Chrome browser and I think it might be a bit better but lacks the third party addons. Once they start appearing I will probably move to it

Default Firefox

Firefox is the best in my opinion. Firefox is safer than IE, has loads of add-ons, and the latest version is about a fast as Chrome. As for incompatibility with certain web sites, that would be the fault of dimwitted web designers.

Firefox. In Mac OS X. What is this "IE" of which you speak?

Hey welcome aboard.

Chrome fits the non-IE model I was hoping for . I think when I created this poll Chrome was just out of the starting gate.

I would say about 94% of the time I am Chrome and Thunderbird, which I use when I am here. 5% of the time I am Firefox at school or viewing hotmail since Chrome has a fit when I try to log in there. 1% of the time when I am force to use IE since Microsoft seems to only recognize only their stuff.

Up until year or so ago, I would of said I used Firefox 99% of the time for quite a few years since it was so much faster and more secure than IE. Yet, it seems to have gotten bloated and moving slow. I have used Safari, but I use it mainly if I am going to Apple site for anything since it seems to be gear to explore there faster much like IE only seems to load fast when you are at Microsoft site. Gee, I wonder why....

Oh well. There you go and more than you need to know...
