    I used chrome but moved to firefox last week. chrome was eating memory on my netbook and was having random problems with it becoming unresponsive. Firefox is better memory wise tho it feels a lot more sluggish and pages don't fully load. I'm getting ready to dump firefox tho I've had bad exp with opera on my mobile

    I tried Chrome as I started having problems with IE9 after release. Never looked back. Great browser.

    Chrome for preference, the response times just seem better compared to IE and Firefox.

    If you are still using IE, quickly find a mirror and yell "Idiot!!!"

    Have IE FF and Chrome on the laptop. Don't use FF much.

    Btw the silly study above should have been "Stupid people use IE" rather than "IE Users are stupid" if you read the article.

    Oh and at work we are on IE6 which is dire, but it's a big institution and they don't change their desktop builds that often. Can't imagine a place liek this ever moving off IE as they have thousands of internal web apps to retest for any release and need the browser to be supported for several years which firefox won't do.
