    Default What's Your Primary Browser? BigDork Poll of the Day #41

    I started using Firefox a few years back and haven't switched. I've heard good things about Chrome but have security issues. I already do enough stuff with Google. I have a hard time letting them to potentially have visibility on all my web activities (yes I have a tin foil hat on that). I use Opera on my iPhone/iPad but haven't given it a try on the PC. As for IE... I only use it for US government sites.

    Firefox is preferred, but IE needs to be used at work.

    Firefox on my PC
    Opera on our iPad

    FeMme uses Chrome and I'm impressed by the speed of it on her old machine!

    I use Chrome on the 2 laptops and managed to convince IT at work to allow me to use Firefox there.

    Have been a diehard Firefox user for many years now.

    Every time I try Chrome I think "gosh, this is such a nice browser" but then I think about having to find replacements for some of my plug-ins.

    Chrome. Firefox with all his plugin version hell and incompatibilities drives me nuts. Runs like a pig, too.

    Chrome, clean and simple. Plugins are for pussies.

    As for plugins, the only one I use is an ad blocker.

    I'm apparently the only Opera fan. I like it because it's simple, low maintenance, and fast.

    Frankly, I've never really investigated the possibility of switching to Firefox or Chrome, though I'm hardly opposed to it.
