Browser Thread

Which browser do you prefer? This is a thread to argue your browser.

For me, I have been a longtime Google Chrome user. I have tried out Firefox, Opera and IE (actually I used that browser for an incredibly long time, until 2013).

I am trying out Firefox right now, and I prefer it to Chrome (or the other browsers). It's alot more customizable, it's better with security, and it's just as fast as Chrome (seemingly). There are alot more add-ons (seemingly) then for Chrome. This is from an avid Google user. I use Google Sites (2), Drive, Gmail (3), and Android (phone).

I've been with Chrome for a while, and I still use it on most of my devices (the exceptions being my netbook and my desktop). It's a nice browser, but Firefox is much more customizable and secure (PC edition). It's about as fast. But I've never tried Firefox on mobile, but I bet it's inferior to Chrome for mobile.

I always use Chrome because it is fast and elegant and don't crash so often.

I use Firefox, unless I need to use flash on Linux, in which case I'll use Chromium

I've never had Firefox crash on me yet (then again, I've only been trying it out for a few days), and I've had Chrome crash on me before (then again, 2 years). The crashes with Chrome have made me (for some of the crashes) uninstall Chrome (and later reinstall it).

Firefox, because I enjoy frustrating myself and I don't give enough of a damn to switch browsers.

Chrome crashed 2 times to the point where I had to uninstall it and reinstall it (on 2 different low-quality netbooks). It's crashed more than that, though.

I switch every school year, just because.

I used Chrome last year, so next year I'll use Firefox.

Currently using Google Chrome right now, after switching from a stint with Firefox. Youtube 60fps and some other stuff being the main reason. The botnet never felt so good. But that's just as far as the desktop is concerned. On my phone I tend to alternate between Opera Mini, TextBrowser, and Chrome (in that order). And on other operating systems I use the best browsers available for each (e.g. using Lynx on 4.3BSD :3 (as an aside, I'm probably the only person who has bothered accessing School Survival from an emulated VAX. :| ))

I use Chrome, Puffin and Dolphin (about equally) on my phone (Kyocera Event, one of the worst Android phones out there), and I use Chrome, Puffin and Safari (mostly Chrome) on my iPad (Air 2). I use Firefox on my PC and laptops (laptops are Windows 8.1, PC is Windows 7) and Chrome at times in all 3.

My favourite? The old Opera, before Opera "Next" or whatever they're calling it. Most customizable thing ever, and didn't really even need addons.

But because hordes of sites refuse to work properly on Opera these days, Cyberfox is what I mainly use now. Basically Firefox, but with all the settings restored. Also they have a 64-bit version, and all the Firefox addons work, and it supports Sync as well. Meh... it's pretty decent, apart from the crashing (and no crash logs, can you believe?).

Actually I have an Iron (Chrome, but without the Googly bits) open as well for certain things, as well as a normal Firefox running some scripts in the background too, so I pretty much use 3 browsers all the time.

My favorite was the old Opera too. Nowadays I use Safari.

But the people that made the old Opera have began working on a new browser, Vivaldi. https://www.vivaldi.com It's currently in the "Tech Preview" phase.
