    I'm a firechromexplorer kind of guy. I use all three of them but the best one which I prefer would be chrome and then it would have to be Internet explorer in second place. That's just my my preference really.

    I use Chrome for general purposes and never thought of using any other browsers for this particular purpose till date. If I am switching through proxies, then I feel safe to browse using Mozilla with No-Script installed. Internet Explorer is used by me only to download Chrome and Firefox if a new OS is installed ;) (if you know what I mean)

    I stopped using Firefox way back when it was still too heavy on the CPU. Nowadays it's much lighter and much more efficient so I've decided to give it a try again. It was okay, but I've gotten used to Chrome's inner workings so I mostly just stick with that nowadays. I still keep Firefox as a backup though, and I still use it for some other minor tasks.

    I used Firefox for a while, but then switched to chrome. I think the interface for firefox is too cluttered for me, and I can't use it. I used Safari for a while even though I didn't have a Mac, so I don't know what I was thinking at the time. So far, chrome is great.

    I use Firefox when I need to do research because the extensions I have are so much better than what's available for Chrome. I use Chrome when I need to get around a little faster. But, sometimes I find myself wishing I was in Firefox to use one of my extensions. I spend most of my time in Firefox.

    FireFox is my favourite browser, I absolutely love it, I just wish it wouldn't take up so much memory though, my laptop has plenty but I still have to shut the browser down every ten minutes.

    Firefox for transactions, browsing, shopping and other business stuff while I use Chrome merely for streaming videos. I have optimized my Firefox for better security and havent had any problems with any online transactions. I also have installed useful addons that I use everyday. Chrome indeed is catching up with the addon thing but there are still some addons that is not made for Chrome that I know of which is only available for Firefox in the meantine. If those plugins were already ported to be compatible with Chrome, I would definitely leave Firefox.

    I used to use Firefox as well but I switched over to Chrome for the AdBlocker, which works like a charm. I don't use Firefox anymore, it's just too slow compared to Chrome. I did like how you could customize the look of the browser on Firefox, I haven't found something like that for Chrome yet.

    I like both Firefox and Chrome. For me, Internet Explorer has too many issues and it also runs slower than both Firefox and Chrome in my experience.

    I used to think that Safari was the fasted browser out there, but I feel in love with Google Chrome. I don't like that Google knows so much about me, but I love Chrome. It is so fast and it never crashes on me. IE always crashed and Firefox takes FOREVER with the add-ons.

    It used to be Firefox but now I'm leading towards Chrome though there are definite advantages to using Safari if you operate a Mac. I really dig how Chrome is so YouTube and form friendly. I'm also finding a ton of useful add-ons for it - even more so than I used to fine with Firefox. I think the tipping point was when my school website would only allow me to login properly with Chrome; I've been pretty much using it exclusively ever since!

    My favorite browser still remains the Firefox browser.
    I never had any types of issues with this browser which is why I never wanted to switch to the google chrome because I don't like swift high to something just because it is mainstream. Therefore I don't see myself deleting my Firefox icon anytime soon,

    On Windows, I primarily use FireFox and have since Internet Explorer (6-7?) I don't know but its been for a few years. Crome is good too, I just don't use it often. Don't do good with change? Perhaps. As for OS X, well, after getting my first Mac, I initially installed FireFox. But after using it and Safari, I found that FireFox just didn't run as smoothly. I also tried Chrome, the same, not as smooth as Safari.

    The same is true for Safari on Windows - terrible. So my favorite (OS - browser) pairings are:
    Windows - FireFox
    OS X - Safari

    Chrome.

    It's got incognito mode for when you have to do some private browsing. It's light weight, fast, and easy on the eyes while still staying aesthetically pleasing. It also has tabbed browsing, along with it's capabilities to sync with your Google account for bookmarks and whatnot.

    I use Opera the most. It doesn't crash and seems to not use too many resources. It's also easy to back up my favorites. I actually prefer Firefox when it works, but it seems to crash occasionally.

    I was the same too, I used to love firefox because somehow it has the add on functionality and it was the browser that everyone was talking about. However they still did not release a 64 bit version of it officially so I end up using some non official ones like Nightly / Waterfox.

    However, they crash easily and can't handle the amount of tabs I have open so I switched to Chrome. Chrome isn't that ideal as well cause each individual tab has it's own processor so if I were to open a whole lot of tabs it'd be very messy on my task manager.

    At least Chrome is able to cater to my mass tabs routine so I just stick to it until now.
