Out of curiosity, what is your Internet browser of choice?  I've switched a few times and have recently been using Chrome the most.  What do you guys use?

Firefox. Maybe 1% of websites force me to launch IE8, and I sometimes use it to test changes to my store's software. 75% of my customers use IE.

Was a diehard Opera user until most Google Apps stopped working with it.  After a month of trying everything and finding no solution I switched to Chrome.

I do regularly use about 6 browsers though since I have to check websites I work on for cross compatibility.

I continue to use IE8, though I suspect most users on this board use Firefox.  It may very well be better, but I don't feel the need to bother to change given that I've had relatively few issues with IE over the years and it's universally supported.

I recently switched from Safari to Google Chrome.

On the rare occasion that I boot my MacBook into Windows, I have Firefox and Chrome on there, as well.

Given it's numerous incompatibilities with standards-compliant websites, I see no reason for anyone to use Internet Explorer unless they are forced to.

Prefer Firefox, but FF, Chrome and IE are all on our work proxy, blocking websites and reporting usage. For some reason they haven't blocked Opera, which actually is quite nice despite the fact I have to use it.

For those of you choosing wanting multiple answers, did you forget the part where it says "most?"  That means pick one.  The one you use more than any other one.  Oh, and I went with Firefox.

I'd love to use Chrome, but it won't let you keep your favorites up on the left pane like Firefox and that's a deal breaker.

But when Adobe gets their 64 bit version of flash working I will be using IE-64...wicked fast it is.

Yet another thread I've killed. slywink

I switched to Chrome from Firefox a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier. It has the extensions I need (with the added benefit of not having to re-start the browser when you install or uninstall one), keeps tabs in separate processes, is fast and safe. Still doesn't allow bookmarks open in a left pane, but I've worked around that pretty nicely.

It's still missing a couple of things, but I was on the Dev channel for a while and they have lots of enhancements on the way.

IMHO Opera > Chrome > Firefox Vanilla > IE8 > Safari

Unfortunately, I've gotten very attached to a few FF plugins. frown
