    The Browser Poll

    I'm just curious - which browser do you usually use? Why?

    Firefox, because IE is evil. Seriously, I began to have more and more trouble with IE, more issues with my computer. I did a bit of kicking and screaming when my husband said "Just TRY it..." but I love it! Great tools, organization, user friendly. Love being able to customize it.
    Seek ye FIRST the kingdom.
    Not second or third, but first.
    Only when all else pales to God, when He receives all glory,
    when He is the source of all hope,
    when His love is received and freely given,
    holding not to the world but to the promise to come,
    will all other things be added unto to you.

    My answer is similar to TBR. Once I switched, I saw a huge decrease in the amount of spyware that downloaded to my computer. I still have to use IE at work, and I very much prefer FF.

    I originally switched to Firefox. Since then however, I found Safari to be faster than Firefox. Since I didn't use many add-ons, I switched. When Chrome came out in September of last year, I was attracted to its simplicity and speed. No nonsense, just a fast browser that works. It's gotten better since then and though I occasionally am forced to use Firefox, I generally stick to Google Chrome.

    Soon as Firefox came out, I wrote IE a cheerful "Dear John" letter and never looked back.

    I tried Chrome briefly when it came out... we were not impressed. Saw no reason to switch from FireFox.

    Firefox here as well. Tried Chrome and safari, but I just like the feel of Firefox better. I've got my AdBlock Plus and ForecastFox, so I'm good to go.

    I do still have to use IE for a few applications at work, but I hardly ever use it at home.

    they will be discovered for who they really are,
    and the world will be appalled.

    I find Firefox takes much longer to start up the first time - Chrome is just click and go. I like that.

    I don't understand browsers. Seriously -- I don't! Is it the thing at the top of the screen? I use AOL (I know, I know ...). Can I use AOL and Firefox?

    But this thread is a good opportunity to post this pic.



    Awwww. Poor fox.

    It is a wonderful thing to be predestined, elected and to believe by faith by virture of His irresitible grace and His limited atonement. Calvie, premill, dispie and full of cats. I love you too!

    I have almost never used IE.

    I used Maxthon for a long while, but one of their update builds repeatedly crashed. Then I tried out Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and a bunch of others, but Firefox stuck out to me the most. I liked Chrome's simplicity, but some of the few features it does have didn't work quite the way I wanted them to, so I stayed with Firefox.

    Me too, and everyone needs cuddles.

    Poor widdle focks. I'm delighted that some part of my taxes go to wildlife rehab!

    Still waiting on an answer to my browser question.

    Yeah, about that. I've never actually seen a written out definition of this. I just know it is what you browse the internet with, and they each have something that makes them different that the others.

    Okie doke. Thanks, very helpful!

    I like my walled garden, but not so walled anymore. I'm just so clueless but its something I'm so used to! And its so annoying when MS takes over my little desktop for some update.

    I use Firefox at home for everyday browsing. I use IE to check my email for my job. and I use Safari for my facebook cuz my wife keeps hers open on FF. I hate the way Yahoo looks in Firefox, tho. Why is it different?

    I'm a certified computer geek, yet use IE, always IE, and only IE.

    You can flog me now. (I can hear your gasp all the way from over there)
