Thread: Favorite Web Browser

    Favorite Web Browser

    I'm just curious what everyone is using. I've been playing around with many different browsers the past 6 months and i've found Firefox to be the best for me. What do you use and what features do you like about it that aren't in another browser?

    depends what I'm doing.

    If I'm using the corporate intranet I use IE because that is the corporate standard and certain pages/apps only work in IE.

    For normal web stuff at work I use Mozilla.

    At home, IE - because that's what my wife is used to and I'm too lazy to load up Mozilla and convince her to use it.

    For me it depends on which box I am currently on
    Windows IE 6 with the google tool bar popup blocker, quick searches Etc
    Linux - Mozilla 1.7 Multi tabbed browsing for multiple web pages, popup blocker
    Linux - Fire fox 0.9 same reasons as mozilla

    I use both IE and FireFox. At one point I was using Opera/IE/Firefox/Netscape however I have moved soley to Firefox and then for certain corp stuff I use IE.

    If I was to give advise on a browser I would say go with FireFox and for Corp IE (what I do )

    Ultimately everyone will have their own opinion--this is mine.

    Another vote for Firefox from me. I think the best features are tabbed browsing and popup blocker (yes, I know that IE blocks up popups too). Every once in a while I'll use IE if a page isn't loading properly in Firefox... But that is pretty rarely.

    BTW, this has been done before... But it's not a big deal.

    Ditto, plus Firefox just looks cooler.

    Yeah, i really like firefox, it's been treating me well. I have found that mozilla products and opera don't work as well under corporate environments like everyone has been saying so IE is the choice in the workplace but for home use Firefox is definitely my favorite.
