    I'm sold on Google Chrome - like how all my settings transfer to whatever PC I'm using. I'm going to miss iGoogle when it is shut down. I know change happens but I don't have to like it.

    I notice that you don't list I.E. 9 or 10. Sometimes I have to use I.E. as our provincial governments website only allows you to download docs using I.E. - and for uploads it has to be an older version of I.E. (Version 7 I think, our I.T. guy discovered this oddity when I could not upload an annual report). I've sent nasty/sarcastic emails to the government suggesting they are anti-choice because the insist on I.E. - now that I have the data above I can quote a serious study that shows most people use either Chrome or Firefox and that I.E is way down the pack.

    I'm using I.E. at the moment in the background because AMD's auto updater for Catalyst uses I.E. - even though Google is my default.

    Speaking of Default - I.E. 10 in Win8 really is a jealous program and does not like not being the default program. Royal pain at time.

    Even at work I use Google at the suggestion of our IT department as they felt it was less prone to infection.

    Oh how things change - I remember a time when Netscape and WordPerfect ruled, oh how the mighty have fallen. For many of you that would have been back before you were born - seriously.

    Interesting because at work our IT department wants us to leave I.E. alone unless we have to use it (some sites still only work with I.E.).

    Chrome mostly. Firefox sometimes. I tend to check out website compatibility on most of the most used browsers though. I'm quite surprised the poll shows so many use Opera - Linux users?

    Not necessarily. I've been using Opera both in Ubuntu and Windows. You can also use Chrome and Firefox (default browser in Ubuntu) on linux machines. Opera is used by connoisseurs ;)

    I really actually don't know why I'm still using Firefox, but seem to be having more and more problems lately. Thinking about Chrome but undecided!

    Google Chrome is definitely better for security, they pay a huge amount yearly to those who find vulnerabilities in the browser. Not sure if Mozilla do for Firefox though.

    I can't live without Firefox, I have it just how I like it but add ons sometimes break certain websites so I use Pale Moon and Chrome as well:

    Firefox - with a ton of add ons
    Pale Moon - with a few essential add ons
    Google Chrome - just plain vanilla flavour
