So what browser do you use? Me I use firefox, except for my crazy browser it is in IE. I have heard there are tons of browsers out there and was wondering what is more popular. I use Firefox cause I have found ways to speed it up, and I was using it back before IE had the tabs like Firefox does. I think the biggest advantage is the add-ons you can get for Firefox, like linky that lets you select a bunch of links by highlighting them and then open them all in new tabs or windows at the same time. So which one for you?

I'm currently using Internet Explorer. I've used Firefox before but I don't like it so I came back to IE again. I've also used Flock. It's a good browser, try it. It has nice intergface and you can organize your files and feeds using Flock. But then most of the time, I use Internet Explorer.

I like using firefox myself. it seems to be much more stable that most browsers ive used...especially internet explorer. ive had that screw up, close down, crash and anything else you can think of more times than Carter has liver pills. then a friend introduced me to firefox and i never went back. whenever i get a new computer i go strait to the Mozilla website and i download firefox and use it exclusively.

I have tried both Opera and Safari, but usually use Firefox the most. It seems to load faster and is easier to use. I use IE for maintaining my website, though as some of the features like uploading photos does not seem to be compatible with Firefox.

I use firefox. I love it because I can open so many tabs at once. I can switch back and forth between them so easily. I love the add0ons tool. I am still learning a lot of the add-ons but I really love using firefox. I very seldom use my IE. I have heard of crazy browser which I used before firefox. I have heard of something called opera or something like that but I still like my firefox and I love linky that works with it. Have a blessed day!

i prefer to use firefox and opera as they are more rapid than internet explorer. internet explorer is really very slow. firefox is very user friendly and it has a good user interface. opera also is good and there are some features in opera that firefox doesnt have and vice versa. but i think firefox comes first then opera and internet explorer is far behind.

I use Firefox and Internet Explorer, but predominantly the former. That is because I find it faster and I have loaded it up with extensions that make my online activities more enjoyable and convenient.

I have got used to Firefox and I found it's quite convenient and better than IE. I can open many windows but it won't slow down my computer. Besides, I added a plug-in called "delicious". And I can keep my bookmarks everywhere when I am online. That's cool. Besides, Firefox seems safer than IE. I love China

Firefox but IE occasionally. So never have to bother with all those problem with IE. Try the tab in IE but it is not as fast as Firefox.

About a year ago a friend installed firefox on my computer because he was against IE...he is agains all microsoft programs because there are so many viruses made for them so he said that with firefox I'd catch less viruses. So I started using firefox on my computer. At home we have another computer and there IE is installed. After few weeks of using firefox I needed this other computer one day and I turned on IE and for the first time I saw the differences. Now IE has tabs too but at that time it didn't and I really missed them, because I had got so used to them. So I installed firefox on the other computer too. No I can even think of any othere difference between IE and firefox because I don't use the first one any more so I don't remember the detailes.

Firefox is becoming one of the most popular alternative browsers worldwide. Most people have IE on their computers to use certain applications on Windows(all variations) and MSN messaging requires IE, but surf only with Firefox. I prefer Firefox as it is easy to work with and though IE has integrated a tab fixture in it's new edition still prefer Firefox. I used to work with Netscape but since it Firefox came out I tend to end up using it. Opera(have on my cell - don't use it much but okay), Safari(never used don't know how it is) are the most known in wikipedia they have a list with various browsers and their applications.
