Vote which internet browsers you use.

Remember to also click on using the poll, and you can always state why you use the browsers.

I use IE6, FF40, O30, SF5.1, and NN9. Netscape 9 is basically Firefox 2.0.0.6 redesigned, if you want to know

Google Chrome, all the way. Personally I've never really used Firefox. It has a lot of features and add ons, but I just always thought it looked ugly.

Firefox started off really strong with the first two main versions, then went downhill. But I've stuck it out and it's been getting better again. The versions have gotten ridiculous though. I guess I'm on v 40.0.2...

Over the years I tried Opera for awhile and never liked it.

I do have Chrome though and use that sometimes as well. It's not bad. Good for Japanese browsing because of the auto-translating options.

I was a diehard Firefox user until about four years ago or so, and I kept getting memory leak issues with it. It got so bad that the moment I would open it everything on my computer would begin to hang even after I forced FF to close, forcing me to restart my computer. I was able to fix it temporarily by using the nightly builds, they worked great for a few months but then started having the same issue.

I then switched to Chrome and I've been mostly using it since. I may start tinkering with Edge soon, it seems like it's a bit more than IE with a fresh coat of paint.

I can't blame you on that for sure, it was really bad a few years back. Ended up kind of killing my laptop and then my old slim PC I had. Maybe I only like FF now because my beefier PC can keep up with it... haha but seriously yeah, my FF is at 850k right now. lmao, terrible.

Firefox's interface is more boxy, which is probably why I've always preferred it myself. Chrome is a bit more round.

Cause that makes sense?...

Firefox, according to StapleButter (Kuribo64), updates tiny things in their next versions and become a more wannabe Chrome.

Since around FF 18 it's always loaded up so slowly, FF 3.6 was pretty fast starting up. And there's those times where it just stops connecting altogether.

I'm almost exclusively on Chrome these days. Not for any real reason other than it gave me less issues when uploading photos to Facebook. I also like all the short cuts I can take typing things in the url bar.

So yeah, all my reasons are superficial. 😜

I suggest you get Chromium, it's the same browser just without the spyware and auto-installed Adobe Flash Player.
