What browser do you use?
« on: March 16, 2013, 06:41:54 PM »
Just out of interest, what browser do you use on your PC ? and why?

IE 7/8/9/10
Firefox
Chrome
Other

I have IE9, Firefox, and Chrome installed and use all for testing purposes, but have to admit to being one of those rare full time IE users.  :legit:

Also, as IE 10 is now showing in windows update for Win 7 and 8 users, has anyone taken the plunge and installed it yet?  I'm holding back ATM.  ;)

FF - mainly
IE10 - occasionally
Chrome - Googling
Maxthon - historical but less nowadays (as it had tabs months before anyone else!)
Safari - worthless POS on a PC (but to try different sites)
Skyfire - works well on the mobile
Whatever and ever. Amen

I run chrome on my pc, mac and android tablet, but also ie9 on the pc and safari on the mac.

Might try ie10 - does it co-exist with 9?

I don't think it does Mark.  But you can apparently switch between IE5, IE7, IE8, IE9 and IE10 rendering modes within IE10 http://www.askvg.com/internet-explorer-10-allows-to-switch-between-ie5-ie7-ie8-and-ie9-rendering-modes/  I think, unless that was just the preview version.

Pretty sure it's not an option - there's certainly only 10 on my Win7 PC after the upgrade

I use IE10 mainly but use Chrome when IE fails on the PC.

On the tablet and phone Chrome only.

Opera, on PCs and Android 'phone and fondleslab. All logged into one Opera account so the browser synchronises across all the platforms.

I have Firefox, Chrome and IE9 installed too, but IE9's days are numbered, it's horrible. But not as horrible as Safari which must be the worst browser in the universe, ever.  :legit:

I hear this all the time, IE is horrible, IE sucks etc.  What is wrong with it? Apart from the html5 and css3 support of course.
