Firefox for me...

I love the fact that, true, it does crash, but when it crashes, you can open Firefox on the same pages again without having to find them all. Which is useful...

As well as all the add-ons. I love 'em.

I've tried to get Grandad onto Firefox, but he remains a dirty IE perv...

EDIT: Post 2525... I just liked that number.

if you share the comp with certain people (liek my mudda ) the restore session thing can be ..... inconvinent if you looked at sites like ld4all ....(paranoia and fear ftw -___- grrr )
which values do i have o change to prevnt sessin restoring ? (looked in about:config and found one ... are there more ? )

greetz
PS: There are ways to solve That HB :plotting

EDITED for sense

I do have Google Chrome installed on my computer (yes .. I do have dell) and it's ok and the only thing I noticed that was different than FF3 was that it was much much faster.

I generally use and love firefox, but I do have to say chrome is turning out to be quite an amazing browser of it's own. Now if I can just get my 10,000 bookmarks up and running there's a good chance it will be my new favorite toy.

Indeed.

I love Firefox. It's versatile, has a good interface, doesn't hog system resources, and allows for Add-Ons to customize your browsing experience. There is nothing better, in my opinion.

I don't much care to become Google's prostitute, so no Chrome for me.

chrome is the best and advanced browser. its my favorite browser too. the latest version of chorme 11 has many advaned features than the previous versions.
there are many advanced features including 50 best web store applications, 87 best add, 12 best extenstions and lot more.
chrome has overaced IE and other browsers in the race. chrome has incredible download speed and the browser itself is very fast. i even checked the browser speed through Scanmyspeed.com.

I have both FF and Chrome but it seems like AdBlock behaves much better in FF. In Chrome it's always whining for me to click on the ad for it to recognize it.

Firefox user here.
Not a particular firefox 'fanboy' but I eliminated the alternatives for a few reasons. Although the newer versions of firefox seem to have made nice steps towards improving on previous issues it had and I'm quite happy with its direction.
I eliminated IE because I'm a Linux user, and well I won't run down IE, there is already enough doing that. (I see security as more important than functionality, something IE has backwards, in my opinion.)
Chrome, because google is too big, they target towards being good, and sound good on paper, but no company being so big and influential, is a good thing in my mind.
Opera, because I felt like it was trying to assimilate me into a collective.
Safari because I'm not aware of a linux version.

Not to step on any of your zeal for chrome but you might want to look at the table shown below, taken from wikipedia, and showing the figures for September 2011. It's true chrome has grown rapidly in popularity, but it still isn't the number 1 used browser at least by this not-100%-reliable method. I'm also a bit dubious about using popularity as a good judge of what is best, IE is number one and frankly I find the prospect of using IE scary from a computer safety perspective.

Just wanted to pick up on this point. Your browser doesn't affect your download speed. That is why I do not trust the website you link to. Browser speed is one thing, download speed is another. "Faster browser" refers to the programs operational speed, not the speed you can browse online, that is and always will be limited by your connection speed, browser can't change that. The test the site claims to do is useless in testing browser speed. If it gives a different result for different browsers its by either design (in a manipulating the results based on user-agent.), or the way the test is implemented. (Meaning it might exploit the way different browsers do a certain act, to get a different result. Not giving a fair impression of the differences between them however, when used on the open internet...)

Firefox is pretty good, and I like it alot. However, the computer I have it installed on is slow, so I never use it. I'm an Internet Explorer user, simply because its easy for me. Google Chrome I never got used to, I don't really know why.

Nice post Dragon.

I'm currently running Chromium and love it. Firefox is my ever faithful backup (and Stumbling) browser. I have actually scrubbed my computer as clean as I can get it of Internet Explorer.

There are minor differences, but for the most part Chromium runs the same as Chrome, and I've gotten so used to Chrome's look and feel. I agree with you Dragon, Google is slowly becoming a bit too big to be good and I've noticed a few moves they've made recently (as a company) that were a bit iffy in my mind, but that's for another discussion.
On this computer (which I believe is coincidentally the same as computer I started this thread on) Chromium just seems to run the fastest. The more recent versions of Firefox have been taking longer and longer to start up and (regular) Chrome seems to be a bit more resource hungry. It's not a HUGE difference, but it is a noticeable one when my computer is trying to stream HD Doctor Who. Chromium just seems to let it render the easiest, smoothest. (Being about 4 years old (and notably older than it's OS), this laptop just doesn't like the shiny new HD videos I subjugate it to) I'd have to be a bit more scientific with my "tests" but from the couple times I've run a temperature gauge while streaming, Chromium seems to run cooler than Chrome or Firefox.

I admit, some of it could be placebo effect and it is mostly subjectively graded, but I like Chromium the most at the moment.

I'm Firefox all the way and it bugs me to no end how all of the school computers use Internet Explorer. They have Firefox but only teachers and myself really use it.
