    Ok so it's my thread so I should answer.
    I currently have Chrome, Firefox, Opera downloaded (with IE already on my laptop and an extra one known as Songbird downloaded was well).
    I used to use Opera extensively but when I got my laptop had to download Firefox since Opera couldn't open my university account site, and IE would crash after a couple minuets of being online. Most recently I've been using Chrome (which sat ignored for quite awhile after i'd initially downloaded it), and that's what my vote is.

    Curious what everyone else uses and why.

    Firefox...Internet Explorer was much too unstable for me with Vista, so I switched. I like Firefox's add ons and it rarely freezes up for me.

    Firefox on the desktop. Firefox and Chrome on the laptop. Why? I dislike the instability of "Exploder".

    Opera is my main browser, though sometimes things don't always load properly. Chrome is my backup.

    I used to use Internet Explorer, but I decided to try Google Chrome about 6 months ago.

    I LOVE Google Chrome. It's similar enough to Internet Explorer that I felt comfortable using it (which I didn't feel with FireFox), but it has loads more convenience than IE.

    I also have Vista and have zero trouble with Google Chrome. I think as more people try it, it will quickly take place of Internet Explorer.

    Safari from my phone, Firefox when on a "real" computer.

    I actually prefer the speed of Chrome and Safari to Firefox, but FF's add-on library is too tempting for me to pass up.

    Google Chrome all the way. It is a lot faster then all the other browsers, especially IE. Firefox has good add-ons though....

    Firefox all the way. I find most people who still use IE simply haven't tried anything else. Once you experience a "real" browser, you'll never go back.

    IE, but I'm going to check out firefox and chrome. Didn't know anything about them. I have VISTA, but am able to upgrade to Windows 7 for free when I get some time.

    Good morning. I use FireFox as my browser. I use dogpile.com as my search engine and not google. Both very reliable and haven't had any issues.

    Firefox. I'll use basically anything that isn't IE.
    Microsoft had a neat idea with IE's accessibility, allowing programs to be run from the web without having to download browser additions. Unfortunately, that accessibility also allowed malware to more easily run directly from attack websites. It was like an open door to your computer. I hope that Microsoft has since fixed that problem, but why go back? Firefox is an amazing browser, anyway.

    Firefox all the way for me for all of the previous reasons mentioned.
