    I'm curious to know if one browser is faster then another? ..or if they are all about the same with only little differences, such as features, security, and user friendly.

    So what internet browser do you prefer? and why?

    I use Firefox because it has ad block plus and the google toolbar. It's also just what I'm used to.

    The best browser is whichever YOU like. We can't tell you which one that is. Try them yourself and see which one you like the best.

    Personally, I prefer Avant, but that is only because I am used to it and have customized it to my liking. There isn't anything wrong with the other browsers.

    Chrome is a few milliseconds faster, but I still prefer firefox on account of the extensive level to which it can be customized to fit your browsing preference.

    Oops! I just noticed there was a thread just like this posted back in 5/02 and I also forgot to add an "other browser" poll option.

    Well I deciede which browser to install depending on the system.
    Opera on my main machine, its secure, and I like the style of it.
    Firefox on the laptop, because it needs a light browser that isn't too resource hungry.
    Chrome on the Eee PC, simply because it displays just the basics and websites have more space.

    Firefox. Lack of windows update page is just a restriction from MS.

    Chrome. Use it on all my machines now. I still keep FF as a backup...but haven't used it since I got Chrome many moons ago.

    Chrome, because in a bandwidth-starved country like mine, fastest == best.

    Safari for main use, Firefox for Internetbanking and IE for and site that doesn't work on the other two.

    I prefer Safari as it seems to blend well with Windows. But i hate IE for that loading time... and it looks bad. Safari also has the history, top pages etc layed out like in the i-phone way. Should be called i-safari tbh.

    Firefox every-time for me. Like Shadow said, Ad-Block (Plus) & others such as Flagfox, and adding in multiple search engines is a fantastic feature. Firefox 3.5 give it a shot!

    I really want to like Chrome, I use IE cus I get fed up of having to flick back to it anyway when a site doesnt work. Firefox always seems buggy to me, and other than IE not working when you right click and copy shortcut, i find not other bugs.

    Only things i dont like about Chrome is no Bookmakrs button, i fail to see why i need to waste screen space with a whole bar, I dont need to see it there all the time. And also there is no automatic empty temporary files option like most browers have.

    Fix that and im converted, but for now, IE is the only browser that does everything for me :ohwell:
