    I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see which browser we all use, as I'd guess that most of us on the forum are quite technical and have tried all the big ones.

    My primary browser is FF3, and has been FireFox for years. :rock: Don't get me wrong, I like IE8... just not as much ;)

    Is it not possible to vote for 2 things? Until a week ago I used Internet Explorer all the time, but I'm growing to like Google Chrome by the day.

    It's really, really, really fast - if you haven't tried it already it's worth giving a go. That said, I still use IE when I'm not thinking.

    Normally IE8 for me, but I've got all of the other major browsers installed (mainly to make sure the site works for everyone). I do use FireFox for some of the plugins it has though.

    IE8 has the greatest compatibility for me, so I suppose that's why I use it. I do see what you mean about the speed with Google Chrome though.

    Using Minefield (Firefox developer builds) as my primary browser and off course switch to IE8 when having some compatibility issues. :)

    Firefox 3 all the way!

    The build in spell checker is the reason I use it ;) You should see how I type without it!

    :lol: I really did laugh out loud when I saw that!

    I halve a computer, and it has spellcheck, and it wood seam that this is awl I really knead.

    The problem with spell check is that it might be a valid spelling, but not the one you want ;)

    Firefox. Chrome was buggy as hell for me, notices about infections.

    Google Chrome for me. I have had not any issues so far. Other option in my laptop is Firefox which I do not really use unless needed.
