Kind of curious to see what you guys like, if Firefox is still King, etc.

I've actually grown to like Opera quite a bit lately. It runs a lot faster than Firefox for me and I just like the look of it a little more, looks slicker.

Still haven't tried out Google Chrome myself, I've heard mixed things about it.

I still use Firefox, but I miss the last version of it. They seem to keep adding useless features while trying to imitate other browsers... I miss how it used to be, dammit!

Yeah, I honestly think I liked it more when it was v2. Ever since v3 was released that's when the browser mysteriously seemed to get slower, even after reformats and 100% clean installs, Opera is way faster over here.

I still like all the plugins and customization though. But yeah, hopefully the browser doesn't continue to fall down that route and just continues to get more and more pointless junk.

Chrome runs faster, doesn't use up all the system resources, and has a lot of little things to make it a lot easier to use.

If I had any use for all of the features in Firefox, I'd like it. However, for what I do, which is just, you know, browse the internet, Chrome is perfect.

Oh yeah, and is comes free with spellcheck. What isn't awesome about that?

I recently upgraded to the newer Opera 10, I guess it's got spellcheck too.

Hmmm, "spell check" apparently.

I'm still using firefox. No problems with it.

As a web developer, I'll also use opera once in a while.

I've used 'em all, and while I love Opera and Google Chrome for their incredible speed and lack of bloat, Firefox just has a bunch of little features I've become accustomed to which none of the others have.

So it's still Firefox for me.

I've upgraded from the final update to Firefox 2 to Firefox 3.5

For some reason, I feel like FF2 was less annoying.

Yep, basically what I said above. Ever since FF3, it hasn't seemed as fast or whatnot for me, I prefered FF2.

The only problem with sticking with older versions is "lol security holes" really.

Because feature wise.... ehhh.

I think I've come to prefer Safari, but what pisses me off about it is how it keeps opening new windows as opposed to tabs with several things despite the tabs preference being selected.

F-ing annoying.

But then again, it doesn't crash constantly on me like Firefox does. Weird.

O_o

So the ironic thing about this is that when FF3 was first released, you all praised it for how much faster it was...

Has it suddenly dropped down in quality?

Oh, and on a side note, if anyone wants, I can tell them how to make it a TON faster (tripling its speed, possibly) without any third party modifications.

I like Firefox, even though I'm using the crappy IE right now. Firefox isfaster, and it dosen't shut down my PC for illegal operations such as posting on a forum. It also has a built-in spell check.

People still use Internet Exploder?

Apparently a lot of things on sites don't even show up using IE because everyone's busy formatting things so they look good on Firefox, Safari, etc.

Yet some sites only work on IE... which is why I love Firefox for having the IE emulator.

I looked at Chrome and Opera and I just couldn't get into it. Even tried the Opera browser for my motorola backflip and discovered that Facebook hates it so back to normal browser for me.
