From about 2002 up until a year or two ago I always used FireFox. I've been using Chrome ever since. I installed Opera and that one seems pretty good too.

So which browser do you use?


You can download and try them out for yourself.
Chrome
FireFox
Opera
Safari

BTW, PackersHome.com looks best on one of those browsers. Internet Explorer, IE, simply doesn't render things appropriately. It's recommended that you just don't ever use IE. It's not well developed nor all that secure.

Almost completely identical to Zero's story.. From as long as I can remember I've used Mozilla/Firefox until about a year or two ago, then got Chrome. I have both Firefox and Chrome installed on my current rig, but very rarely do I use Firefox (normally to troubleshoot internet/website issues if they ever crop up).

been using IE - but getting tired of it - last update gave me a spellchecker which is cool - but I often lose my windows/tabs (very inconsistent in saving these) - and like atm I have 30 tabs open and really don't want to go find em all again ...

how is chrome compared to ie? - any issues with it or running java stuff etc? or accessing certain websites?

I use firefox the most. I have chrome but rarely use it. I need IE for work. Most of my companies only use IE and their websites only support IE.

I use IE - I can never get into chat because of it but it's what I know & am used to.

Try Chrome and try the chat. We can walk you through the steps to get it working if necessary.

I have to use another browser for the chat. They are just as easy to use as I.E.. Trust me, if I can learn to use it anyone can.

Same as you, Z2C. Only problem I'm having is that, when I have a couple of tabs open or just have Chrome running too long, it'll eat up to 400 mb or so, so I might be switching back to Firefox again soon.

Safari.

Though that's more about laziness and a desire not to deal with moving bookmarks, learning new menus, whatever. My "appreciation" for Apple has definitely waned since switching to Mountain Lion and this POS "Retina Display" model.

They're just another evil corporate empire like MS and Google now.

Used Firefox for years, switched to Chrome for most of 2012 when flash was causing so many issues, with a few versions of Firefox, and I was crashing frequently enough for it to be a nuisance. Switched back to Firefox earlier this year, I think it was 21.0 that finally had things running normal again. Chrome was a bit of a resource hog and the differences in my uses were so negligible when I reused Firefox that I switched back. Always preferred it's handling of add-ons, user scripts and theming.
