I'm curious as to what browser everyone uses.

I personally switch between Chrome/Firefox. I tend to like Chrome because it's a bit faster/smoother for alot of things and I tend to notice that when I am coding/doing web design.

Chrome's been the smoothest browser I've ever used. Least amount of clutter, and their tab system is non-migraine inducing unlike IE's.

Chrome for me, too.
I'll sometimes have to (reluctantly) boot up IE for various web apps we have here at work, that only work (or work better) on IE. But those are the rare exceptions.
Safari when I'm on a Mac, but that again is a rare work-only exception.

... I remember back in the day, when it was a fight between Netscape and IE...

IE since I've been using it ever since we switched from dial-up to broadband back in the late 90's but Chrome has some really neat touches like being able to jump to a photo directly from its url without having to copy and paste. Also, as expected, video runs really smooth on Chrome. If it was just me in the house I'd probably use Chrome exclusively but most of the time my wife leaves IE up on the computer so I use it.

I use Firefox. Don't ask me why I have no idea. I think I remember someone using it once and asked why there computer looked different to mine. Loaded it up and gave it a run and have never looked back. This is for work though. At home i've got internet explorer still but I reckon i'm going to change that too.

Chrome is good by the sound of some of the comments here. Should I give that a crack??

I use chrome and absolutely love it, but that might have something to do with the fact that i used to side with the devil and use explorer :-8 , anything is great after it.

Firefox for day-to-day browsing.
Chrome for development and testing of websites because it has superior debugging features and is based on the same Webkit "engine" as the Wii U browser.

I use Chrome currently. I was with IE until a few years back when they had a major security concern and it was recommended that everyone download a new browser until IE was patched. I dl'ed Firefox at that point and loved it. It worked superbly for about a year and then it started to give me issues, especially on Facebook. It got unbearably slow and glitchy with Facebook so I tried Chrome and it has worked out even better.

Lately I've been having stability issues with IE9. Seems to happen most when I'm on GameFaqs or YouTube. Anyone else having issues?

As a fix I tried returning the browser's settings back to default and switching to software rendering instead of GPU rendering. Still seem to have an occasional hiccup though.

I use Safari because its so simple and I like having the book marks along the top of the page. For uploading videos, I use Firefox because it has the upload protection thing that Safari does not. Some times, when uploading a video with Safari, the upload will fail and abort. In firefox, if the internet goes out or something, the upload pauses, and firefox starts it again when internet is back. Chrome also has that feature.

I always used Firefox until they started to release a new (broken) version every week. Now I use Chrome.

I use Chrome/Firefox on Windows PCs, Chrome/Firefox/IE10 on my main Windows 8 desktop, and then on Linux machines I'm usually using Firefox or Chromium which is just open source Chrome basically.

Ok, so Google Chrome has double the responses of any other browser. Is it worth the switch? and is it easy to operate?

Since I'm running Windows 7 I was able to upgrade to IE 10. In some ways it's faster and Youtube seems to run smoother with it but occasionally when on this site things will just freeze up. It's bad enough that I've started running Nintendo 64 Forever in 'Compatibility View'. Overall I'd say that version 10 makes Internet Explorer even more like Google Chrome so take that as you will.

The reviews I've read say IE 10 has better built-in security so that's a plus but it all goes on behind the scenes so I'm not aware of it while surfing the Web.

Wow, I didn't even know what incognito mode was so I took a look at the Chrome control panel and that was both a pleasant, and humorous, surprise. :lol:

I've used all of them and some not even on this list (WaterFox, IceWeasel and maxthon to name a few) but I always come back to Firefox. I don't know what it is, I think I just like the look over Chrome. Another reason I never used chrome for extended periods of time was because my tin foil hat is on to tight and I heard about google tracking you through chrome when it first came out but it looks like they stopped that (but they already know everything).

I work at a computer repair shop and I have seen some nightmares with the new IE10. So I'm glad to see that its working out for you Grizz. For example it says no pages can be loaded when connected to wifi on a laptop but I can ping websites. Rolled it back to IE9 and they loaded. So we usually recommend Firefox.

One nice touch I've noticed about IE10 is that it automatically spell checks my post when I'm writing in an on-line forum. This is a God-send as I'm probably the worst speller on the face of the planet. :-8

I currently use a combination of all 3. I have them all in my task bar down the bottom and just open whatever these days. I would say mostly chrome at home though and mostly Firefox a work.
