    I use Chrome – I started using is mainly because my work email is Gmail based and its the only browser that had pop-up notifications for gmail – but now I really like it.

    I use Chrome or Firefox.  Internet Explorer sucks and Safari is just all right.

    Chrome. No issues, fast, lots of fun stuff, apps, extensions, etc.

    Firefox!! I dislike Safari (although I made the switch to Firefox about 6 years ago and never looked back, so it’s possible Safari doesn’t suck anymore).

    If you ever apply for financial aid with the FAFSA, just FYI their website can only be used properly with Internet Explorer, Safari, and…wait for it…Netscape Navigator.  Like they actually recommend that one.  Oh government, you’re so behind the times.

    @peachacid:  NETSCAPE? I didn’t realize anyone still used that!

    I use Chrome but have IE installed for really old sites like that.

    @MexiPino:  I’ve noticed it’s sites that the government has something to do with that only work on Explorer.  For example, the state testing database doesn’t function properly in Chrome.  *rolls eyes*

    It is teh awesome.

    Mozilla, who make Firefox, deeply care about user privacy and are constantly making their browser more secure and more private for the user. What other browser is there that is even close to that? Google Chrome and Microsoft IE are actively taking AWAY as much user privacy as they possibly can. Helllooooo NSA and every company’s tracking database anywhere. I can see why Google dropped the “Don’t be evil” motto some years ago…they suck now. Only Mozilla is not evil, in this group.

    And the mascot/logo is a fox with a tail made of fire. How awesome is that?!

    Oh yeah, and it’s pretty reliable and customizable too.
