[Poll] Web Browsers

Post by Kordosa » Thu May 17, 2012 2:19 am

I thought it might be interesting to see what web browser everyone uses and why. It might be useful to Crisu in determining the best site design (maybe). I've enabled re-voting in case anyone switches to a different web browser in the future.

Had used the following, from past to current: IE -> Mozilla Firefox -> Google Chrome.
Using Safari on my iPod but that's not my primary browser.

So yeah, I use Chrome. (:

My current, and voted browser is IE.
My prefered browser, which I would like to return to eventually, is Firefox.

Firefox primarily. Chrome is a close second place for when Firefox is just acting stupid.

Timeline (past to current; length of arrow denotes amount of use before changing):
IE -------> Firefox ----> Opera ---------------> Chrome -> Opera
Preferred (least to most): IE -> Chrome -> Firefox -> Opera

I guess I'll go ahead and identify myself as the sole Opera user here. Back when IE was a virus magnet and Firefox was starting to get bloated, Opera boasted a much smaller, lightweight profile. So I tried it and I loved it. I've been using it for years, and I love the keyword search function the most out of its available features. I have noticed every now and then a website that isn't totally compliant with current web standards, and I'll end up seeing a messed up layout in Opera, forcing me to use Firefox for that site. And while I have tried Chrome and don't have any problems with its functionality, ever since Google reworked its privacy policy, I just didn't see any reason to agree to the policy every time I used Chrome, so it's not installed on my computer anymore. Since I'm still running Windows "XP" on this computer, I do use IE for Windows Updates, but that's it.

tl;dr: So in short, Opera's my main browser, Firefox is my backup browser, and IE is solely for Windows updates.

OMG what about Netscape Navigator?!

I only use IE for crap like Bing and Swagbucks so it stays off of my main browser lol

I've tried Chrome before, and it ran smooth and I appreciated the Miku theme, but it seemed kinda bare in the features/add-ons department compared to FF. Also, it's related to Google, and they're just a creepy company. FF is pretty cool when it comes to browsing privacy.

I've never used Opera or Safari.

I use Chrome too. Firefox is my alternative browser and IE for the compatibility view feature.

I use Chrome.. but yeah it lacks the add-ons advantage of firefox.. whenever I need to download something esp. videos from youtube or other sites, I use FF.. But because of too many add-ons, the speed becomes limited, which leads me to use Chrome for browsing..

On my mobile devices, I use Opera Mini.. :)
I dont use IE anymore and not have experienced using any other browsers besides the four I mentioned..

IE for life!

Though more than anything, I'm just used to IE. In case I need to visit more dangerous places, I'd boot up my security-addon-laden Firefox, but for daily forum browsing and the like, IE is quicker and more convenient.

"In the Sunspider JavaScript benchmarks Firefox left its rivals in the dust, storming through the tests in a hugely impressive 189.4ms. Safari was next with 219.6ms, followed by IE9 (247.9ms), Opera (254.3ms) and Chrome (291.0ms). "
