Firefox because of these plugins:

AdBlock plus
British English Dictionary
Xmarks

The private browsing feature sets the "Gold standard". Awesome bar is pretty awesome too.

Never felt the need to even try Chrome. I've been with FireFox for a very long time. I gave Safari a chance but came running back..

Oke Firefox, Chrome and Opera seem the most popular.

But what's the difference ?

Yes i want fast surfing and easy to useof course.
Are there any outstanding qualities what are a must havé.

I've been an IE user for only 2 years but before this I never even owned a computer. More or less played something with Bowser in it for a while.


the only thing I've been encountering is that there are some sites where it takes ages to load.

Do you have some kind of ad-blocking plugin in IE? If not.. Have you ever see what www looks like w/out ads?

Firefox for sure. I'm getting rid of my googlekrap search features because of all the info gathering that they do. Down with googlekrap

I'll use Altavista or Bing for searches.
IMHO

Dunno if it's from IE

Google is basically spyware. They track, collect and sell your information to the highest bidder

well, some of the features that any browser should have nowadays are session manager, tabbed browsing, private browsing, news/feed reader.

The reason I prefer Opera over the other two is because all these features come pre-installed.
You can get Firefox and Chrome to perform the same tasks, but you have to make use of third-party add-ons to do so. which means that you have to keep track of updates for a bunch of components in stead of just one product.

also, since add-on developers are only concerned with making their component compatible with the browser, sometimes you get conflicts between different add-ons which may take whole months to get fixed.

also, you have to keep in mind that add-on developers only work on their components on their spare time, so you shouldn't expect fixes to bugs to be released briefly after the bug was reported.

so really, the difference between them is that Opera is a very well thought-out all-in-one deal, while in the case of the other two you have to track down each component you need yourself.

Oke then !

That's some info I understand. Something that doesn't need extra attention. With ad on, that's something like Adobe reader right ?

All those features come pre-installed in FireFox. Also I bet the news reader is ways better than in Opera. What goes for updating stuff. It's all automatic. I've yet to come across a plugin that caused crashes or did anything it wasn't supposed to.

I don't quite get the question.. Are you asking if add-ons are like Adobe Reader? Or is Opera Adobe Reader in this analogy?

Adobe Reader is a stand-alone program, while add-ons are basically extensions to a program.

for example, Firefox has very rudimentary tab management. you would have to install the Tab Mix Plus add-on for tab handling to be as good as Opera's.

Ok I get the difference.

On the tab on.

I usually open in a whole new _ usually because when I close a tab I close the whole _ Or am I a numnutt and really don;t understand what I'm working with ?

If your looking to be able to browse things with out someone at home being able to see what you have been looking at or searching for I know Google Chrome has a feature called "Incognito Window". Aside from that, I would have to say that Chrome, Opera, Firefox are the most useful and most user-friendly.

Also, with chrom,if the window becomes unstable or shuts down unexpedily, when you open it back up, it gives you the ability to restore what tabs and pages you had open when it shut down. Also it asks you when you try to shut down a window with tabs if you would like to close all the tabs that are open, so you can't shut it down on accident.

I don't really care who sees where I surf to and on.

I do care if my porn is hi-res and easy to download if that's what you mean.

I use chrome and firefox.
Chrome is resource friendly, doesn't use as much of your memory to run... until you start installing some addons that is, but the good thing about chrome is you can switch addons on and off individually and control how much resources are being used.
There are still some webpages i come across that are not chrome friendly then i use firefox.
Firefox is also great lots of addons and features and i would say just about as fast as chrome now for web browsing.
A combination of both and you can't go wrong. but if you could only pick one i would have to say Firefox because it does everything.

Well,why don't you all give this a try.

It is called Wyzo.

It is nothing more than Firefox,just repackaged.

All of Firefox's addons, extensions and skins work with it.

Even some that have not been updated to work with the newest version of 'fox.

I ran into it some how a while back and have been checking it out.

I imported my bookmarks from Firefox and using my Xmarks sync feature the same bookmarks show up in either browser.

Firefox has many useful addons and a variety of skins.

Loading pages is not a problem if you turn off Flash.

That will allow any browser to load faster.

I just added flashblock as a addon and saw a noticeable increase in speed which pages loaded.

I have tried them all and Chrome stinks and IE sucks.

Opera is weird to me too.

All of them other than IE are based on the original browser program Netscape Navigator.

This was the most popular browser before Microsoft put IE in with Windows 98.

I have found the fastest browser for surfing the web to be Safari which is from Apple computer but has PC based applications too.

But I am sticking to Firefox because of the large number of useful addons.
