What broswer do you primarily use? if its something not listed, please post
IE7 on all the machines I use at home and work.
It's not that I have any issues against any of the other browsers, it's just that IE is there so I use it.
one of the reasons i dont like ie7/opera/other ie core based browsers
and also the fact that firefox is very customizable and versatile.
I use Firefox.
I have nothing really against IE, other than that fact that just about everyone else uses it, and that in itself has it's consequences.
Besides, Firefox has adblock .
i saw the ff extension thread, really picked up a nice batch of additional extensions to add in lol, you guys know any good themes? im using blue ice atm, nice clean and simple theme. btw gotta love colorful tabs..
I just install Google toolbar and it blocks all the crap in IE too.
I actually like the stock theme the best .
but can it block microsoft from secretly storing your usage history? (see post above)
Switched for the tabs, and haven't went back.
I use IE on Vista.. I dont mind if they dont fully delete my history.. butthey should not keep your outlook stuff on you computer when you deleted it.. hackers could steal your internets@! lol well your infomation, or if some noob sells his computer without clearing the HD the nexted person could find some private infomation on thier system.. not nice but this is microsoft and they dont care lol.
I honestly don't care. If Microsoft wants to store 9 million hits on TPU that's ok.
Besides, I know where MS stores the stuff and can get rid of it if I need to.
i personally prefer my privacy thank you, and i'd like to see you delete everything ms stores, that article has a shitload of hiding places lol.
opera since it's quicker than ff, and i like it better in generally
I can't stand IE, it always seems to freeze up on me. And, firefox saves my session, so if i forget what i was doing, i can just restore my old session and carry on. oh, and i like all the customization options. oh, and it's also very pretty.
I use Firefox with:
Adblock Plus >>> shortening URLs to their nasty roots!
Plus Firefox Portable for USB Stick.
IE6/7 and Opera just for compability checks.
you can use ietab, its a really useful extension. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
it lets me use ie from firefox, really useful for things like compatibility checks, etc.
so far ff is winning, leaving the other broswers in the dust, having over 50% of the vote.
Opera ftw.A browser that lets you resume downloads EVERYTIME, now that`s what I want.
It`s just too much hassle to use a download manager ... ya know ?
lol, opera is a great way to download linux distros lol
Firefox. I'm thinking about moving to IE7 though.. It looks better imo. Opera is really nice too.
I've tried Safari a bit, but it's kinda frustating to use. Also, there's no Cleartype, so the text is kinda fuzzy. It looks really good though..
So far, FireFox continues to stay in the lead with ~55% of the votes, with ie trailing behind with ~27% of the votes.
Firefox from me..
IE and Opera
Only due to the fact that FireFox has too many security holes, and Opera is more secure.
You can customise firefox to exactly how you want it to look...
And if premade skins arnt good enough, you can just create your own. Yay for open source.
