What's Your Browser?

What is your primary Internet browser? I use Chrome on my Windows-based computers and Safari on my Mac. Might switch over to Chrome for my Mac soon. So.... what do you use?

Chrome for my mac, windows PC, work PC, my Galaxy Tab and my Galaxy Nexus.

Pretty much chrome across the board.

In terms of browsers on my computers it goes Chrome, FF ,IE if on windows, anything else, and then safari. as you can tell I think safari is crap.

Safari for everything. Chrome always seemed slower than Safari to me. And I like the layout of Safari better. It follows the logic of most other apps, where as Chrome does not.

However, I do use Safari, Chrome, and Firefox for testing. (And sometimes signing into something multiple times.)

Chrome on my Mac's and PC's for the past few years. Before that it was Firefox. I've always disliked Safari and Internet Explorer

Safari at the moment although I've been having some issues with it crashing lately so I might be switching to Chrome, but we'll see what happens.

Safari is just the worst. I can't remember the last time I opened it in OS X.

OS X: Firefox and then Chrome. I've just found Firefox to be more reliable with streaming (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) and is fine for everything else. Occasionally I'll even bust out Camino. Never Safari.

Win XP (Bootcamp): Chrome.

Win 7 (Work): IE 9, Firefox, and Chrome. IE 9 needed for some things (VPN and random logins, business banking), Firefox for the rest, Chrome for personal gmail and whatnot.

Safari on OS X and iOS, Chrome for the times that certain things don't work (which seems to only be one instance). And Chrome on my S2.

Safari on my own Mac Mini. Whatever is installed on other computers I use from time to time..... I'm not all that fussy. They seem to differ only in a the details. For general use the differences don't bother me much.

@ Squilly; May I suggest you set up a poll for this topic. The information would be more concisely presented and illustrated with a graph, which would be more useful than scrolling down the thread. Respondents can still leave a comment after they have voted.

Serious or being funny?

I use Firefox primarily. It is frequently updated and I like the security addons. (Better Privacy, No Script, Netcraft Tool Bar, and Web of Trust (WOT). I assume Chome has something like this, but I use Xmarks, an online bookmark manager/synch program.
