This thought has come up many times I am sure but there are so many option to broswe the web now, right? For me I like internet explorer set up more, but seem to surf better in Firefox to be honest. I wanted to ask what is your favorite and why do you like it more then any other. I also know there is Google Crome as well and I wanted to see if anyone has used that and what they felt about it.

Firefox, of course. It may be not as fast as Chrome, but the add-ons are something I really need, everything I surf the Net. They allow me to do exactly whatever I want and I need, in a web page, and such a frreedom is really important to me. Besides, it's also open source and free, which also make it ethically corect, from my point of view. Greasemonkey, then, is... well, is even too powerful to handle, something, but it's a great add-on, for Firefox ;)

i agree with you...firefox is not the fastest browser but it compensates for its usable features and security options...i have tried some browsers but i always ended up going back to firefox!!

Mozilla Firefox is by far my favourite internet browser. I used to like Internet Explorer, and I now, looking back, I do not understand I could possibly have ever liked it at all. With Mozilla Firefox, I can download plenty of great addons, created officially and created by users from all over the world. I like the download system it uses, where I can pause downloads, retry downloads, and keep a history of downloads, which I can also delete of course. The history system is also much better, and makes it much more easy to search for specific sites that I need to revisit. There are many custom themes that you can download or create, as well as many useful plugins and automatic plugin tracking, such as for installing Adobe Flash Player when you first get it. I also like the fact that it saves your passwords if you want it to, and gives you an option to remember, forget, or temporarily forget passwords. If you then forget your passwords, you can quickly and easily look at the passwords and accounts that have been saved, and on which websites they have been saved on. It is just, for me, the best browser available. I have not had much experience with other browsers such as Opera and Safari, but I did not like them as soon as I saw them for the few times I did. Firefox is the best.

I will also add that Firefox allows you to save your tabs, and if it ever closes or crashes unexpectedly, which it rarely ever does anyway, you can restore the tabs when you start it up again. It's great, and can be a life saver if you have a powercut or your PC crashes or loses power for some reason :)

Mozilla Firefox is always my favorite browser. The main reason is because of its performance brilliance compared to IE and chrome. Also the add-ons they give are simply brilliant and very useful for routine internet users.

My favorite web browsers are Opera because it always gives me good surfing speed and never hangs during surfing on this browser. I have used also Firefox but it is problem of being crashed and sometimes it is crash during worked so now I am using Opera and I think that it is a good browser because no nay problems I face during surfing.
