Chrome 42%
Firefox 52%
Safari 6%

Do you like one for speed or maybe one is nice for multiple tabs.

I've always stuck with Chrome I think, but keep Firefox as a backup if things are seeming slow or laggy. How about you? :)

I use Chrome most of the time, and just have MS Edge as a backup.

I use both Chrome & Firefox. I use Chrome for youtube/twitch, videos just run better on it for me. Firefox for everything else.

Voted Firefox.

I use edge. It's fast and is reliable. It also doesn't take up a lot of ram.

Safari is for people who can't see the need for another based on they are light users.

Firefox is for Google protest voters. I root for Firefox though because it's Netscape Navigator 2. It was sad how IE bullied NN out of the market when it was such a good browser.

I used to code websites and ie6 was a law unto itself with it's very own 'quirky' rendering engine. The cost of rewriting style-sheets and html to 'degrade' to ie6 must have cost the world economy billions. I know because that could take longer than the coding itself.

So Microsoft burned it's bridges by making ie7 totall sh*t

As a developer, chrome has the best inspector so that's a reason. It uses more memory per tab than Firefox but it has a nice architecture with widgets and plug-ins and is the developers choice for it's feature rich inspector palette.

I like opera too but at the end of the day it's only when Chrome craps out I bother with the other one's. I'm not testing cross browser code at this point in time, so.

Forgot internet explorer. So many now with androids too.

Why does chrome use so much memory? It bog down my system more than when I make beats on Logic Pro. Let me explain to you that Android is NOT a good system.

I've been using Edge since I got my newer comp and I like it. It's too bad they're probably going to stop supporting the browser.

I had been using Chrome for a few years, I still use it on my Android phone. I generally like it, but there's a few things about it that could probably be better. I would likely get Chrome again since I've already embraced Google on Android.

Used to really like FireFox. I have no idea what it's like these days. Do some people still prefer it over Chrome?

Firefox. Netscape nostalgia. "Netscalgia," as I like to call it.

Firefox. I hate the way Chrome scrolls up and down pages.

The scrolling in Chrome kinda reminds me of mouse acceleration. The window still scrolls after my mouse wheel has 'clicked'.

FireFox because I don't need a extension to wipe my history and cookies when I close it.

Firefox for me, on my desktop at least, as it eats up the least of my computer's RAM. I was a Chrome user for a long time though, but I realized it was taxing my computer far too much to do that and stream video to my chromecast at the same time.

Old Opera (12.64 version I think) was the best browser I have ever used. Atm using Chrome. Should really give Vivaldi a shot though.

Chrome or Firefox... Both simple and fast.
